Caring Enough to Ask – Could there be Another Way?

Is it arrogance to suggest that the way we currently live is not working, or is it the ultimate expression of love to potentially pop peoples’ bubble of pride and ask, “Could there be another way?“

I was certainly stuck in thinking life was ‘fine’. After all, it was a simple enough assessment to make. All I needed to do was to look around me and, as long as my life was like other people’s, my life must be fine. On bad days, I would look at people ‘doing it tough’ and that would also confirm my sense that I was okay. Generally speaking, this is what I also noticed other people around me doing.

The reality though, was that my life was anything but fine. I lived with poor sugar regulation, moodiness, back pain that would have me bedridden a couple of times a year, the sore neck, a highly functional but not overly caring marriage, a job I felt obliged to stay in to provide for the family, an expanding waist line, and the list goes on. But looking around me, everyone had some variation of these things going on, so even though I didn’t feel fine, I had resigned myself to believing that this was as good as it gets.

What is interesting is that I had trained as a Natural Therapist; I had completed post grad training in counselling and trained in many other modalities. What is interesting is that even when I compared myself to other people in a similar profession, they also had similar things going on. What is even more interesting is that we had all the knowledge, the training and the tools to ensure that life was more than ‘fine’.

In 2004, my wife dragged [yes, dragged] me along to the Sacred Esoteric Healing Level 1 Workshop presented by Serge Benhayon and run by Universal Medicine. By the end of that workshop I knew that something about the workshop was different but couldn’t put my finger on what it was. I would look around at the people presenting the course and those already working as practitioners and what I saw was something within them that was so vital, true, and yet unforced, that I could not but consider that there might be another way.

For the first time in my life, Universal Medicine presented me with another way to be with life. It was a way to step off the treadmill of what I should or shouldn’t do; a way to feel if what I was doing to myself (and others) was supportive or not.

This gift of simple choice was one of the most liberating tools I have found. It was to stop the spin of the world from spinning inside me.

Over the years, through my own choices, I have built a way of living that delivers a level of vitality that is not forced or derived from sugar, caffeine or any other stimulant.

I have a more honest connection with people than I’ve had before, I love the work that I do, earn more than I have done previously and I relate to my wife and family more deeply than before. So, after years of studying ‘holistic medicine’, the Universal Medicine modalities have been the first that have delivered a truly holistic result, without claiming that they do.

I live with such deep appreciation that Serge Benhayon cares for humanity more than his own popularity to ask the question,

“Could there be another way?”

The answer is undoubtedly YES and the evidence is the thousands of people like me from across the world that have made their own way of living and who are realising more and more that the answers were within us all along… we were just not asking the right question…

“Could there be another way?” The answer is undoubtedly YES.

  1. “Is it arrogance to suggest that the way we currently live is not working”? All we need do is pick up a news paper and read the shocking situations taking place around our world as well as the lack of respect or regard for people in the way many of the articles are written, to know all is not well in our world. Then put on top of that the fact that millions are reading these news papers every day and we are not all considering that perhaps “the way we currently live is not working” to me proves that indeed “the way we currently live is TRULY not working”.

  2. It is definitely not arrogant to suggest that the way that we are living is not working, and neither is the way we are working living. If we don’t say it, are we not choosing to accept it for another few thousand years?

  3. “For the first time in my life, Universal Medicine presented me with another way to be with life. It was a way to step off the treadmill of what I should or shouldn’t do; a way to feel if what I was doing to myself (and others) was supportive or not.” And this is the beauty of Universal Medicine, as it asks nothing of you, only offers an opportunity to understand that there is another way to live – the choice is then all yours as to what you do wtih that.

  4. To be truly free is simply to be aware of all the choices energetically speaking – every single one of them and not have any hidden, for in the end there are only 2 choices of energy: the energy that is from our deepest essence the core of who we are, or the energy that is not of this divine source. Once we are aware of these two, then we know we have a true choice and we are free – free to make the choice of one or the other. This is freedom. For one can be behind bars and yet feel more free than a man that walks the plains on earth, yet knows not the freedom of energetic choice.

  5. “Is it arrogance to suggest that the way we currently live is not working” – there is no arrogance in this, just simply a realisation or the willingness to be honest and reassess the situation and then see what is there for us to unfold.

  6. “So, after years of studying ‘holistic medicine’, the Universal Medicine modalities have been the first that have delivered a truly holistic result, without claiming that they do.” And this is just one of the many extraordinary qualities that make up the modalities of Universal Medicine, with their unassuming and very humble but unquestionably honest and simple approach towards true holisitic health.

  7. Comparison is so tricky, especially when we feel that life is not it and we then look around us and see everybody else doing the same and so settle for what we have even though it doesn’t feel true.

  8. I remember a student once saying we live on a hamster wheel but the door is open we can get off the wheel and live a different way.

  9. When we see something that is working for another then it is only natural to ask about that “other way”. If we don’t then we are potentially avoiding going to a deeper truth.

  10. We always know what is/isn’t working for us in our lives, but sometimes it feels like we’re so stuck in the momentum of making the same choices, that living in a different way feels like it’s beyond our capability. In my experience, nothing that lasts changes overnight. The biggest changes happen incrementally, over time, and starting with just one thing at a time. Step by simple step.

  11. It is important to constantly reflect on how we have got to where we are today, and whenever needed question is there another way.

    1. Yes it is only by being honest about how we are and the quality of our lives that we are able to make different choices. It has to come from within.

  12. I agree, studying holistic massage therapy myself, I experienced later when I started studying with Universal Medicine, that this brings a true holistic movement. All aspects are included from the start the energetic aspect which brings a result in the physical form. But also the whole universe we are part of.

  13. It is deeply loving to express truth and even more so in the face of long-lived momentums of lovelessness by a society that reflects increasing levels of illness, disease, discontentment and abuse. It is not always welcomed to hear that we are responsible for the quality of life we live. In our openness to the truth we can feel what is loving and what is not as such are empowered to live more in honor to what we feel and know is true from within.

  14. To feel if what we’re doing is supportive or not is a constant learning and daily medicine. When we care enough to ask ourselves that question, then we hold within our grasp the key to transforming our own health and wellbeing.

  15. When we settle for less, it robs us of the possibility of another way. When we were the young child we would never settle for less, so what happens when we grow up?

      1. I have just seen how much I made myself less and what a great way to live under the radar this was. But the cost is a total loss of vitality and dissatisfaction. At some point that becomes too uncomfortable to continue with.

  16. There are many other ways back to God, to live our essence once
    again but why not take the short cut with the support of Universal Medicine.

  17. Could there be another way?
    Yes we went another way, We left the way to return to soul and we drifted away. The modalities and teachings of Universal Medicine are supporting us back to a way which innately is very natural to us.

  18. That’s the odd thing about cruising in comfort, we know everything is not fine but we do not question deeper if it stands to rock the boat we have all set sail in.

  19. Knowing that there is another way to live, rather than existing in a world of complexity and lovelessness has been life changing for me and countless others. This is all because of Serge Benhayon’s deep care and love of humanity, that he is willing to stick his neck out and often become unpopular by sharing with us how we create our own reality and that it is our own hands if we want to change our current ill way of living.

  20. What seems to be the source of our problems is that we measure and gauge how well we are doing by observing that others are worse off than us, living in worse conditions, so we settle for accepting an average standard of living, for at least we are not that sick or at least we are not living like that. Yet we are measuring our quality of life from outside of us, and not from any consultation or connection to our body and being, and the truth it offers us of the far greater potential of health and well being that we can live with. Serge Benhayon has reflected that there is a far greater way we can bring living all of us, one that is accessible by us all. Is it that we don’t look at the greatness that another lives, be inspired to then pull ourselves up to live our greatest, because we don’t want to face the truth and responsibility that we are living less that what we are born to live?

  21. This is such an awesome question to ask: could there be another way? because it can be asked at every point of every journey – not just the ones that look difficult and challenging, or perhaps like they are not even working at all, as it is the smooth and bump-less journey that perhaps needs the question asked the most.

    1. Absolutely Shami well said – every step of the way we are either living impulsed by love, by our Soul, or we are not and our bodies will always reflect the quality of energy we are aligning to. So in fact we always have the truth at hand if we are willing to ask the question.

  22. ‘I live with such deep appreciation that Serge Benhayon cares for humanity more than his own popularity to ask the question,

    “Could there be another way?”’

    The depth of love Serge Benhayon has for humanity has inspired me ever since I first met him. I knew when I did meet him my love for humanity was far less because all my personal desires I knew were getting in the way. That being said I knew what he presented in how he lives is the way and I chose to start the journey back to where I too will care for humanity more than fulfilling any desires that I know are poison.
