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. This is so true Joel… it is the ultimate expression of love to have someone care (love) enough TO pose the possibility that we’ve got it all wrong and are living so much less than is our potential. Without true love (which is equally for all), why would Serge Benhayon care about the way anybody else is living. He could just continue to enjoy his loving family life, and prosperous working life, and not worry about the rest of humanity. It does re-write what we know love to be though, he has certainly taught me that. My own version prior to this was very limiting and self-centred. He has shown that true love is far from this… and cannot but feel what is going on for others, and care enough to offer another way.

    1. Beautifully put Jenny. What you have stated Serge Benhayon offers – and my experience has been the same – is the foundation of true charity: true care for others unmotivated by an ounce of self-gain, a simple expansion of love, but one most of us never get to. True charity arises from true love.

      1. Beautifully put Jenny and Victoria, Serge Benhayon offers us true care without an ounce of self gain, and yet he has it all. And he has presented to us that we can have it all too, without exception, true love is for everyone as everyone IS true love, equally so. Together Serge Benhayon, Universal Medicine and the Students of the Way of the Livingness are re-writing history, the time has come for us all to claim the love that we truly are and that it is attainable for everyone, all it takes is a choice and an openness to consider that there may be another way to live, without the hardship and struggle, and that it is possible to halt the path of destruction that the human race seems to be going down, by coming back to Love.

  2. I keep coming back to the power of this question which, as with many questions, provides us with the opportunity to stop for a moment and consider where we are at, the choices we are making and the lives we are creating for ourselves. These points of reflection are super important and powerful if we are not going to let ourselves simply be buffeted about by life.

  3. I agree Joel that one of the remarkable things about Serge Benhayon is the way that he has never shied away from asking some uncomfortable questions about how we are living. This is not a great business model in terms of popularity or wide spread appeal but it is a model with great integrity because it puts people, and a love for humanity above all self -interest and self-gain.

  4. My life was ‘fine’ too Joel. A bit of a stiff neck every so often was fine, a few arguments here and there with my partner was fine, a consistent rash on my back was also ‘fine’. But one day, after a lifetime of a persistent feeling there is more, I decided to try the different way you speak of. And I haven’t looked back 🙂

  5. I wish someone had asked me this twenty, thirty or forty years ago. Maybe I would have been too arrogant back then to be able to answer truthfully, maybe I would have discounted it as nonsense, but maybe I would have seen the truth from the way you live your life, maybe I would have seen enough truth to make me consider exactly how I live my life.
    So – Yes please lets ask the question!

  6. Another beautifully expressed blog Joel, and ‘we were just not asking the right question’ hit the spot. I wonder when I get stuck in something if I can pose that to myself of the situation,’ am I asking myself the right question’?

    1. The problem with asking ourselves the ‘right question’ is that deep down we don’t want to because we’ll do anything to avoid calling ourselves out. Sure we do a lot of pretending to ask ourselves the right questions but our questioning comes from the same energy as our avoidance and so we know damn well that we’re not gonna call ourselves out, it’s just a pretence, more stalling for time.

  7. Like Joel I have a vitality today I could never have dreamed of 10 years ago. My blood sugar is balanced and typically I never have an afternoon low. I rise early every day. I am engaged and enthusiastic about my work. All of this thanks to the work of Universal Medicine and my choices to support and develop care for myself.

  8. My life is fuller and ‘busier’ than ever before and I can feel that as I develop there will be space for more. I reflect back not so long ago when I thought I was busy and I lived with an anxiousness and nervous excitement/drive that is exhausting even to recall. Today I am appreciating the power of remembering how I was and considering the multitude of remarkable changes that have taken place in my life since I first started working with Universal Medicine; totally undeniably transformative and miraculous. In the full on ness and intensity of life, which I feel is heightening, I get steadier more consistent, and more aware, apparently contra to what is going on around me. Thank you, Joel for sharing your reflections and change as inspiration and confirmation that Universal Medicine offers us a way out of chaos and struggle.

  9. I can relate Joel to your initial appraisal about your relationship as functional but not deeply caring. It is truly liberating to deepen the care and love I have for my body past a functional relationship and see this also reflected in my relationships with others.

  10. Love this Joel. Could there be another way? If the way everyone is living can be another way – as we know from personal experience it can, and with great joy – then why do people accept less than this as normal? This will definitely be more widely felt by everyone and become the ‘normal’ question not too far in the future eventually becoming a reality that will become a question that the majority of all people will ask and then we can all live in – another way.

  11. Joel, I appreciate more than anything your straight forward sharing of your experience, as is expressed, the issue I experience is just how much people are pretending that ‘they are’ and ‘everything’ is okay, when clearly ‘they are’ and ‘everything’ is not okay.

  12. Gail I agree with what you are saying. It is a sad reflection on how we live when we use the level of sickness in society as a marker for how we live rather than the level of joy that it is possible to feel. In fact this form of comparison which is so prevalent in the western world today is such an avoidance tactic as it stops us being responsible for our choices that we are making daily and takes us further away from our true way of being. Joel, I am so appreciative to have had the opportunity to find out that there is another way to be in life and this is an ever unfolding journey for me!

  13. “This gift of simple choice was one of the most liberating tools I have found.” I agree. Even what seems the most arduous or difficult task, moment or time can be changed by a simple choice.

  14. Joel. There is another way, changing from what we were. Coming home to Universal Medicine, and words of Serge Benhayon.

  15. Yes Joel, I too feel there can be another way and I am also learning like you to experience it in my life, and know a true vitality.

  16. Isn’t it amazing how we compare ourselves with someone who is not sick either. Why have we learnt to use sickness as the marker/comparison. Why are we not using true health and vitality, strong true relationships, consistent steady behaviour as our markers.
    Maybe because it is so rare, that we assume this is the way society is. It just happens to us and everyone around us. When will we actually stop and look honestly at the mess we are all in.

  17. I too have a vitality that is not derived from artificial stimulants – one by one I start to let go of them. But really it was the way I was choosing to do things that supported me to see that it was draining my energy. Once I looked at that and made a change to the way I went about things this is what Universal Medicine has supported me to have a better understanding of and in turn I have a higher level of vitality.

  18. “This gift of simple choice was one of the most liberating tools I have found.” ‘Liberating’ is a great word to use. Because in my case it had to come from me and it was me who could choose or not choose, I found and find this ‘tool’ to be an absolute gift, it does not involve anyone else telling me what to do or how to do it. I had such a major issue with trust, any change in my life had come from me. I felt the difference, my choice – simple.

    1. I love what you have shared here Samantha, it has brought me the understanding of the issue of trust and changes in life needing to come from oneself to learn about trust and responsibility

  19. Several years ago I arrived at my first Universal Medicine Workshop, full of arrogance and pride because of what I thought I knew. Right from day one all I heard was could there be another way? I could hear the Truth reflected back by this, lovingly expressed, but not holding back any punches either. My life has turned right round as a result, wonderfully so. You ask: “Is it the ultimate expression of love to potentially pop peoples’ bubble of pride and ask, “Could there be another way?“ I would unequivocally say YES.

  20. It’s lovely to hear you express this Joel. It’s so akin to what I’ve experienced. Before my association with Universal Medicine I was overweight and if current trends were to continue, set to gain a lot more. I was recluse, given up and the greatest joy in my day was gorging chocolate or watching a show/movie as a reward for getting through the day. Since simply attending and being open to the philosophies presented by Universal Medicine I lost weight without an ounce of trying or focus, left my unhealthy eating habits behind and now have a life entirely dedicated to giving back to my surrounding community which leaves me feeling full and content at the end of the day.

  21. Thank you Joel. I feel like shouting out your final line “Could there be another way? Yes!” Just look at me now compared to ten years ago, even five or two years ago – look at photos, belongings, bank accounts, cars. Now look into my eyes, feel the quality that I live in. There is another way, there certainly is. And the evidence is right here.

  22. I replaced “I wish there was another way” with “Could there be another way?” and now can say fully, with joy in my heart – “There is another way”. Thank you Serge Benhayon.

  23. You mention thousands of people from across the world that are realising more and more that the answers were within us all along… we were just not asking the right question… This is true, I am certainly finding that and “Could there be another way?” is a poignant, loving and expansive question. There is always more evolving to do, greater awareness to open up to and deeper love to embrace – that question is always worth asking.

  24. The Way of Livingness as presented by Serge Benhayon & Universal Medicine is just that “The Way of the Livingness” ~ the way we ourselves choose to live. It’s not something that has been or is forced upon anyone, far from it. We have been presented with the truth, that we have a choice and we are responsible for those choices and that we are love and we are all love equally so.

  25. “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.”

    We are so used to being on this treadmill of the should do and should not do’s, it seems impossible to most people that there could in fact be another way. A way that brings it back to you, your life, your choices, your responsibility. It may be easier to stay on the treadmill of an existence which compares itself to others and calibrates well being to the status quo, but as the stats show, we are getting sicker.

  26. What I can see in hindsight is how I was satisfied with crumbs (to keep the analogy of a pie) in life, in my relationships, in my work. In short, mostly I was selling out to get some love and recognition. This has changed tremendously, because I asked myself the question’ could there be another way’ and acted on it. So this new standard requires more questioning, more simplicity, more chipping away of the complications that hold me back. The question ‘can there be another way’ still goes, it hits deeper layers of my patterns and behaviors that can be addressed and changed for everyone to benefit from.

  27. Hi Joel, I can relate to having a belief that this is as good as it gets and that everyone was on the same merry go round – until I attended presentations with Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. What has been revealed to me is that there is a totally different way to live and the simpler the better.

  28. Joel this summed it up for me beautifully. “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. ” I too had this feeling until I made the choice to go to a Universal Medicine retreat and realised that ” Yes, there is another way.” The best choice I have truly ever made for me.

  29. Joel you are a master of stating the obvious with simplicity and grace in a world where the obvious is denied, buried and at times reviled. I love the way you write. Thanks for sharing this unfoldment.

  30. When we get reflected back to us our true essence by someone else who is living their essence we see that there is another more loving way to live and get inspired to make different choices so as to be able to live in this joy and harmony 24/7. This is why true role models are so important and why I have been inspired by many who are associated with Universal Medicine.

  31. Do we CARE enough to ask? What are we caring for and who? Is it for others before ourselves, or ourselves totally before others? These are the two opposites that most of us live with. If we are in either of those states then we are not able to make a simple choice as the ingrained behavioural consciousness of self interest first is so strong. However, the moment we realise that we are worth caring for in every action of every day, the world opens up to us and we naturally begin to care for everyone equally. In this moment the choices are simple and we are living another way.

  32. “Caring enough to Ask Is there another way?”, is a profound question to ask Joel, there has to be something in us that wants to question life and seek another way.. My question before I came across Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon was, ‘there has to be more to life than this?’ This was the burning question that would pop up at certain times in my life, but each time I asked that question, like you, I looked around and saw nothing that showed me anything that was greater than what I already had. Through Universal Medicine I now know there is an amazing life to be had and my life long quest has been quelled. I am learning to live my life by making more loving and caring choices that are no longer just about me but about everyone and everything and this has opened up my world to so many new and enjoyable possibilities.

    1. I totally relate to feeling this way prior to attending Universal Medicine presentations, Alison, that ‘there has to be more to life than this?’ but not finding an answer despite all my searchings. My life has now been transformed and has a purpose because it is wider than my previous limited horizon and so much more fulfilling.

  33. After we get introduced to the concept that our lives may not be as great as we think they are – it comes as a shock when we come to the conclusion that they are certainly not. It’s just that we have never really thought about it before. Deciding what was wrong with my life, in conjunction with hearing Serge Benhayon’s presentations on ‘could there be another way’, led me to a much more pleasant and peaceful way of life, especially with regard to curbing my emotions and living in stress.

  34. It’s inevitable that our acceptance of what is normal slips if we are to use ‘how everyone else is going’ as a gauge of what’s considered ok or par for the course. I love the way you clocked others looking so vital, true, and yet unforced, that it inspired you to consider that there might be another way. What is different is that it was not any sales or promotion speak that was trying to convince you, but the natural vitality and gentle way that was the living inspiration.

  35. I have been feeling how this new normal of my way of being is so supportive to my life now. Lots of people are realising too, yes, there is another way to be.

  36. ” Reading this blog I can feel how deeply caring it is to ask that question “Could there be another way”. The only way you can ask that question is to have felt what life is all about and to have then concluded that maybe, just maybe there is another way.

  37. Serge Benhayon has presented that there could be another way and that the current ‘only way’ would have us believe that it is actually a million different ways when actually it is all the same. This came to mind as you shared of others being ‘worse off’ or having a ‘harder way’ in comparison to oneself but as I have learnt from Universal Medicine stress and tension is still stress and tension regardless of the trigger within each person, hard times are still hard times and unease is still unease, it’s just our individual experiences of what causes such is different. What Universal Medicine has shown me is that regardless of how our ‘way of life’ may look on the outside there is a quality control behind all of it that can be felt as love or not love if we but choose to allow ourselves to feel that there is another way, often meaning we have to feel that the more dominant way has not been the true way or in the true quality. A humble pie I am continuing to work through, sometimes freeze and leave for a while but I keep coming back to eat more.

    1. Love the humble pie analogy, great to be able to freeze then eat some more – after a bit o thawing out or cooking – love it and part of my journey too.

  38. Yes Joel literally thousands of people have made simple yet profound changes to their lives. It is so awesome to be part of the new normal which is to be inspired that there is so much more to life than I could have ever imagined before I came across universal medicine.

    1. So true Vanessa, now there is a new normal for many and I am inspired by others who are living their lives from the simplicity of self-loving choices and energetic responsibility.

  39. We can so easily get so caught up in the merry-go-around of life that we forget that there is more to life than just getting by. Maslow the psychologist believed that every human being had an innate wanting to continually evolve and develop. He also knew that this would not be possible if we were not living in ways to support ourselves in this evolution. Thanks to the teachings of Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon, who has indeed shown there is another way, where vitality and joy can exist on a daily basis and not just on a “happy occasion”. All of this providing the foundation to continually evolve and develop in ourselves and in our relationships. Great article Joel than you for sharing all of this so simply.

  40. Through Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine I have learnt that I also have a choice and I am directly at the controls of the direction in which my life goes instead of being at the mercy of it.

    1. Yes Kevin, it is a big eye opener when we realise we are at the controls and not at the mercy of life. That can feel impossible when stuck in a whirlpool, often known as life’s challenges but when the question arises, ‘could there be another way?’ the answer many of us have discovered is ‘yes’, thanks to Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine.

  41. If we simply allow ourselves the grace to ask the question, ‘Could there be another way?’ we can start an honest review, without judgement, of where we are at, as individuals and as humanity, and in so doing start to break down the invisible fortresses behind which we pretend, and struggle, through life.

    1. It’s deeply empowering to take stock and reflect and ask the question ‘could there be another way’? As yes, I have found there is another way, if we open ourselves up to the possibility and we are honest about the way we are living.

  42. I too love that question “Could there be another way?” and I feel so privileged to have been given the opportunity to ponder on it as a result of the presentations I have heard from Serge Benhayon. I am so grateful that I was able to find such a great answer this way; through love and truth.

  43. ‘ the answers were within us all along… we were just not asking the right question…’ How true, Joel, we avoid asking the right question and live our lives in the illusion that we are doing okay because there are others worse off. How great to see the truth of what is happening and, even better, to be able to choose ‘another way’.

    1. Yes, it’s crazy isn’t it – because others are worse off, we think we are doing okay. There most certainly is another way, if we so choose.

  44. A great contemplation and a definite answer yes there is another way to live and i know this for myself from the inspiration and reflection of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine and I have changed my life and the responsibility I feel from this lovingly.

  45. I love that question “Could there be another way” and I feel the answer is yes. I have certainly been presented with the truth to make my choice to live or not by Universal Medicine. I also love the simplicity by which they share and we can live, to make self-loving and loving choices from our body and not our head.

  46. While I read this blog again it came to me, that to be able to ask the question “could there be Another Way?” is quite a privilege. So many people on this world are ‘busy’ with survival because they life in war zone, in a violent or impoverished region. All that they can think about is how to survive this day while I ask myself what to wear or how to deal with my difficult colleague. All I want to say is that, in my life is space to ask myself questions like “could there be Another Way?” – and with that space comes a responsibility to do so. It’s not OK to live a functional life – if it could be loving, harmonious, beautiful and joyful every minute. I feel that I am asked to be more, express more than just what is comfortable so far. And I am sure we all know that there is an other way, a harmonious, loving way to live life with ourselves and others. So I love how you put the question Joel: Are we caring enough to ask? Because we have the space, the privilege and the responsibility to ask for an other way – are we caring enough to to do so? Your blog inspired me again to deepen my relationship with this question every day: is there another way? Can I express more loving here? Can I be more open with this human being? How can I bring more harmony into life and into the world?

    1. Fantastic response Sandra. It is amazing in itself to have, as you say, the privilege to ask ourself this question. Space and time are always important qualities and they are necessities which we can make for ourselves should we choose to. When, and if, we do, I have found that great light is shed on many of the issues that I sometimes think I face…and without much thought at all “another way” presents itself…and I know just what to do and just how to be.

      1. I agree with Sandra and Jenny, the issues we face are mostly about how we can live our lives, while others face issues of how they can stay alive. Perhaps when the privileged ones see, and practice, that the way they live influences the way everyone lives, all humanity will have the space to choose.

    2. Great call Sandra, absolutely agree with what you said. Why are all the privileged people in this world not assuming responsibility and truly caring and expressing love? It is really time for this call and a clear YES to responsibility and YES there is another way!!

      1. Yes, love what you have written here Sandra. I am in the position to ask this question and have had the luxury of asking it from the time I started questioning what was being presented to me as how life should look. So I agree it is my responsibility to act on this not merely for my benefit but as a way forward in every area of life and in relationship with self and all others. There can be a forever deepening of harmony and love and joy. There can always be more to care about and yes Rachel, ‘ …YES there is another way. ‘

    3. Great questions Sandra… Can I express more loving here? Yes, Always. Can I be more open with this human being? Yes, absoutely . How can I bring more harmony into my life and into the world? Continue to deepen and expand my self love/self care and my awareness in everything I do. Is there another way? Yes, there is Always a new choice to make; making one new choice can lead to other new choices which can lead to many areas of your life changing for the better.

    4. Great questions Sandra… Can I express more loving here? Yes, Always. Can I be more open with this human being? Yes, absoutley. How can I bring more harmony into life and into the world? Continue to deepen my self love/self care in order to expand my awareness of love. Is there another way? Yes, Always. There is Always a new choice to make, which can lead to many other new choices which can lead to your life being completely transformed… which in my case, has been my experience.

    5. Beautifully said Sandra. I totally agree that if we have the space to ask ourselves if there could be another way – then we should do so – for it only takes one to look around and read the paper to see the mess humanity is in. There is a lot more to just surviving every day.

      1. So true. There is much more than surviving waiting for us. And the funny thing is, we are all searching for MORE, looking for a meaningful life. But the question is: what are we willing to do for it? Am I really going for the “meaning” -so to say- am I open for it? And if the “meaning” is knocking on my door, do I say “YES, come in please and change my life”?

      2. Absolutely Sandra – when we ask if there is something more, most of the time it is ‘something better’ – I know I used to be that way! But now I also understand how I am just one tiny little piece of a much bigger picture – and thinking to better myself won’t get me any where. It should be about the all.

    6. Thanks Sandra,
      I have read and commented on Joel’s amazing blog in the past but was drawn back here for some reason and I know now that it was to read your powerful addition in this comment. I know it has exposed for me in the indulgence I go into.. having the space and knowing what I do know but not actioning it in full. Thank you very much this is a gem I will take with me now and always.

      1. I agree Sandra and Sarah , your comments have inspired me to look more carefully at where I use comfort to sit back and do nothing.

      2. Your observations really made me sit back and take stock of myself and the privileged culture in which I live. We are not stacked against insurmountable events that challenge our survival.. We have the “luxury” of being able to pause and reflect on life and our state of being within that. You have reminded me Sandra that it is not just a luxury, but a responsibility to do so, and to make these lives the expression of truth, not just a nestling into the comfort that makes us fall into a deep moral and ethical sleep when there is so much in life that is not right and not true.

    7. Great comment Sandra. Compared to a lot of people we do have a lot of privilege and space and I totally agree that for those of us who can, it is definitely our responsibility to ask the question of, “could there be another way”.

    8. Sandra, I love how you have shown how ‘could there another way’ isn’t simply a question to be asked and answered once, for if that is what we do, if we just say, ‘yes, and I have found it’, we in fact continue to live in that lesser functional way. You have shown how the question is in fact to be part of our daily lives, it is to be lived.

  47. “So vital, true, and yet unforced”…..when you wrote that Joel about UM Practitioners, I was like YES! That is so true. I adore that about them and find it so inspirational because there is NOTHING about them that is forcing you to do it their way so when you are in their company, you simply just feel their vitality and truth and then are free to choose next as to what you do with that. I am choosing more and more to be deeply inspired and live my life in a way that is unforced – which is quite a change from my past – let me tell you! But that’s for its own blog I feel 🙂

  48. “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.” I too learned about this on attending Universal Medicine presentations. It is a whole new way of looking at life; seeing the bigger picture, not just the small part I play, which had been all about me – and a bit of ‘do-gooding’ along the way. “Could there be another way?” Most definitely yes, as many students can now testify.

  49. Joel. There is always another way, to coming home to who we really are. It may take sometime to realise, but we will know when it has arrived. I found this out by attending Universal Medicine retreats, and listening to Serge Benhayon.

  50. You have described the freedom so many people wish for, Joel. When we talk about freedom in relation to the way of living you describe as “fine”, there is the desire to escape from it when things get too bad, or fight for our rights by rebelling and overturning the oppressor, and so on. However, this is never freedom, only another version of the same way if life. But if, as you say, we start to live another way as in “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.” Then that is true freedom.

    1. That says it all for me Joan, and reverses escape from a life that is merely ok to welcoming one that is full of Love, Light and Joy.

    2. Awesome Joan, I love this line too. I have found re-connecting to my essence and making loving choices that support my body a simple yet profound way to stop the spin of the world from being inside me. It is now easier to observe what is going on around me and accept what I feel and see. I have much appreciation for Universal Medicine’s presentations that gave me the tools to begin choosing love and how to observe and not absorb the emotions & “spin” around me.

      1. This is great learning indeed; what a freedom from becoming attached emotionally to everything that is going on around us, and mentally to everything we read and see. The foundation of being present in our bodies, and the developing or our senses and sixth sense, and finding the love for ourselves and others within our core, allows us to choose to step back and observe. This feels like mastery. It is an ongoing process but Serge Benhayon has shown us the way.
