Ok, I’m just going to out myself here and say straight up – I love all the Benhayons…
Declaring my love for an entire family may seem a bit odd, however it is an interesting question and one worth asking – why do I love all the Benhayons?
Furthermore, why does someone, like me, who led a small life in a big industry in a big city and who, in the past, was VERY careful about who she befriended and who she publicly aligned to… (after all I had my reputation as a known film and TV industry publicist and administrator at stake – and my career was built on my reputation and my social life was an extremely important part of my career)?
Why does someone who in the past would never have dreamt of writing a public blog, nor for that matter associate with anyone else who wrote a public blog announcing that they loved an entire family, a family I might add, that lives in a suburb in Lismore which will likely never be the cause of anyone’s ‘postcode envy’, a family who come from a sporting background, a family who does not have one single known/recognised actor, artist, director, DOP or film producer amongst them and a family whom the writer is not related to, doesn’t hang out with nor grew up with etc; why would that someone suddenly have the need to publicly announce familial love?
Before I answer that question though, let me share what got me thinking about the fact that I love all the Benhayons. It was not that my life is devoid of things to do and I was daydreaming (unrealistically as we all know he is married) about running off with Michael, nor that my life is built around the Benhayons and therefore dependent upon thinking about them daily, nor even that I hang out with them or see them that regularly… no, what got me thinking about the Benhayons was the fact that over breakfast this morning I wondered to myself which one of them I loved the most…. (please feel free to laugh here, I am not a serious person).
And do you know that I couldn’t, in all honesty, put any one of them above any other in the ‘how much I love you’ stakes.
Every one of them is a truly amazing person in their own right, their expression is uniquely their own, their chosen career path is uniquely their own, they complement each other and do not compete, they conduct themselves with the utmost integrity and respect, they are funny, they are self aware, they are generous, they are imperfect, they are inspiring, they are hardworking, they are open to all equally, they effortlessly and without trying make each of us who see them as clients believe that we are the only person in the world who is so charming and interesting and evolved and they hold all of this consistently whilst allowing us to see their humanity and their imperfections.
So, if by following the ‘presented’ road of returning to love that Serge Benhayon has so consistently and lovingly been presenting for over 13 years, if by witnessing many people, including the Benhayon family, live their lives with an ever increasing ability to be love in all that they do and say, if that raises eyebrows or seems a bit odd to others then I invite you to tell me why you wouldn’t love such a family?
And while we are here, I’ll answer that initial question about why go public?
If strangers have the right to accuse me of being one of a “gaggle of middle aged women with a penchant for ball busting” as has been done by a small group of people who have written lies and slanderous accusations about this amazing family, if they can find the time to write lies publicly then it is for sure that I can find the time to write about love publicly and send it straight back to them.
My life is truly blessed for having met each member of this family. And for the price of having chosen this path that Universal Medicine has presented, I am now devoid of onerous depressions, outrageous needs for recognition, drug and alcohol addictions, lonely marriages, lack of purpose and endless, endless arrays of drama.
Thank you Benhayon family, I love you all equally.
