I am a student of the Way of The Livingness – I have been for the last 6 years.
I have written many blogs about what I have learned along the way and how much I have turned my life around.
What is amazing with being a student of The Way of The Livingness is meeting other students, and hearing their stories. I love real life stories, not made up versions, but the real deal.
There are some students of The Way of the Livingness who I meet and when they describe their life and how they used to live, it seems as if they are talking about someone completely different. This is what I love about these people. They have lived and experienced life in so many different ways.
I have met people who have been heroin addicts, prostitutes, a drug dealer, police, a lawyer, a sailor, an NLP practitioner, a Reiki Master, a doctor, a nurse, a dentist, a counsellor, a yoga teacher… as well as one person who was constantly angry, another who was always depressed, another who was a hermit and didn’t have any friends and would not interact with people; some were poor, some were rich… I have met so many people from all walks of life and made new friends.
What this has shown me is that The Way of The Livingness is for everyone equally and it does not matter what your background is or was. It does not matter where you come from or what you have done. None of that matters. It is not ever about what you do or what you have done – it is actually more about who you are.
There are no rules, no regulations, no ‘shoulds’ or ‘should nots’. All that this way of living really asks of you is to be aware of yourself and to take responsibility for your choices. This is how these people were able to make such changes in their lives.
I for one spent most of my life unaware and in a mode of blaming everyone else instead of getting honest and realising that everything that has happened to me in my life is because of a choice I have made. Nothing just happens.
I am so glad that I was introduced to Serge Benhayon and his inspiring family and that I found Universal Medicine. I love being a student of The Way of The Livingness – it is now my way.

Absolutely, we are committing to evolving back to who we are in truth, by living The Way of the Livingness.
Yes, we are all equally sons of God, and we can live in brotherhood with one another.
The Way of the Livingness is so simple, it’s challenging at times but the outcome is more self love and self care, which then leads to more love for others, feeling purpose in life, and a beautiful joy which comes from living the true me.
The Way of the Livingness also encourages us to be more responsible, to see the part we have played in situations, ‘I for one spent most of my life unaware and in a mode of blaming everyone else instead of getting honest and realising that everything that has happened to me in my life is because of a choice I have made.’
I was confused, lost and in denial of this fact. Now understanding that we all have this choice in life, and can live within our essences or return to our inner-heart, I am inspired as a forever Student of The Livingness.
To have awareness requires honesty, and honesty is easy when we really want to understand our behaviour and change the things that we don’t like.
Since meeting Serge Benhayon I have learnt more about the world we live in than anything that our current education offers. There is no following of each other, but a deep understanding that we know that we are held in consciousness of deep illusion. While we are held the free will we think we have is not free will at all, but part of the illusion that we all struggle with.
Yes Mary hidden it is, as the Truth lays open many wounds that people want to hide, and being honest about this is the first stepping stone to absolute-honesty, then truth.
“It does not matter where you come from or what you have done. None of that matters. It is not ever about what you do or what you have done – it is actually more about who you are.” And it is so much fun to find out and appreciate who you truly are.
Simply and beautifully expressed Elizabeth – and so true.
“What this has shown me is that The Way of The Livingness is for everyone equally and it does not matter what your background is or was. I so agree Rosie. Learning about other peoples lives and the huge shifts they have made in their lifestyle – with consequences resulting in better health and vitality is awe-inspiring.
Many of the lifestyle changes made by the students of The Way of the Livingness are indeed incredible.
Attending Universal Medicine events I have met incredible gorgeous people who are not afraid to examine the depth of the illusion we are all ensnared by. With this comes not only a great humility and understanding but also a love beyond measure and a joy that equals that. I would not trade this for anything. It is a way of life we all know to the bones of us and beyond no matter our background, ideologies or philosophies.
In-truth there are no borders between us nor boundaries that define us lest the ones we erect to keep each other out.
The way of the Livingness understands that we are all human beings with a divine aspect of ourselves that is equally accessible to all if they so choose to connect with it.
True truth is the one that is recognized and embraced as such regardless of people’s background, and I agree – that is what Serge Benhayon represents.
There are many parts of my life that now feel as if they were at least a life time or more ago, and I continue to make changes through the teachings of the way of the livingness and every change brings me more deeply to living a life from who I truly am.
The Way of the Livingness is a true religion that is never just about bettering your life, it’s about embracing love and truth and then sharing this in the world, it is never just for ‘self’ it is always inclusive of everyone.
Sharing love, and truth, expressing this, so the truth is presented.
Meeting so many people, from all walks of life , who have chosen The Way of The Livingness as their way, has been completely life changing for me, but also a lot of fun. And what’s more, is how I love the sense of being together without ownership or emotional baggage. There is just a simplicity and an appreciation for whenever we meet, that is light-hearted and playful but also can be very very deeply supportive – with some awesome real life no holding back conversations.
It does seem crackers that we have to learn to be our true selves once again – returning to who we were, before society, school and even our parents tried to mould us into being what they thought we should be. No blame, as they in their turn were moulded. We see babies and young toddlers just being. Why on earth can’t we allow that natural joy and vitality to flourish and continue to be the love that they are? Could it be that who have let that go feel jealousy and comparison cos we think we have lost that. Yet it’s still deep inside us, as the Way of the Livingness shows. We just have to un-bury it and bring it out.
That’s the thing I so appreciate about the Way of the Livingness … no matter who you are or where you’re from it doesn’t matter, each makes it their way as part of the Way and each brings a different aspect, an equal part of the whole, truly equality in action.
We know how to love and accept ourselves when we are very young. Then we learn how to be different and then we can learn how to love and accept ourselves even with the new learning. That is The Way of The Livingness.
Love how simple you make this Elizabeth – as it should be.
A profound change in how all of these people live, all of us. Hmm.. that is at worst unusual, and much more likely a totally unique education. So it seems crazy that there is so much resistance to what is being taught, unless of course that is the whole point – that the overriding human consciousness at this time is totally resistant to change.
Being a student is about allowing , allowing yourself to feel who you truly are, what you bring with you that needs healing and what else you have healed so far, and can serve with in all relationships with people.. It takes a commitment to keep standing whilst you feel your hurts and allow them to be felt and let go of.. Not being tempted by the rigors and patterns that keep you in the old way(s). For there is much to evolve.
Yes, once you know who you are at least to some degree then everything you say applies and we have that choice.
The profiles of the people who are students of The Way of The Livingness make clear that the esoteric is all inclusive.
When we stop the blame, thats when changes happen. When just take responsibility for every part even if it is uncomfortable.
I agree Rosie, being a student of The Way of the Livingness does ask us to take responsibility for our choices in life. It also asks us to commit to life – to ourselves and to everything 100%. My questions then are ‘what is our true purpose in life?’ And ‘why are we here?’ For me, unless I am dedicating myself to being aware of the quality of what is going on within and around me (The Way of the Livingness) then I have to ask ‘what is the point of being here?’
There sometimes is a perception that Students of The Way of The Livingness are just people who had a ‘condition’ and needed to ‘get help’. If you consider illness as us thinking we are purely human, and discounting our divinity then this is true. It seems to me we all need help remembering we are Sons of God. Thank you Rosie.
If something works this well with lots of personal reports then it is probably worth investigating further.
‘everything that has happened to me in my life is because of a choice I have made. Nothing just happens.’ … the power we are is encapsulated in this, we choose and there are results and we can choose differently … we are truly Gods and the Way of the Livingness is a path back to living the truth of who we innately are.
Rosie, just loved re-reading your sharing – absolute appreciation. We all have so much to share and offer each other. For me I just have to get myself out of the way and then what I bring is everything I or anyone else could ever want or ask for without the constant trying to please or have the right words, naturally it is all there.
Yes, naturally it is all there for us all, equally so.
We just often need reminding!
Thank you for sharing this appreciation Rosie. I have also been greatly inspired by those I have met over the years, every one of us in life has a story and though the outer story may be different, there is a truth we all know within that when connected to unifies us all.
Yes, when there are lots of people doing well there is a lot of inspiration available.
The Way of the Livingness lives within us all, for it is the one true path back to our innate godliness. It is a way of life that calls us back to who we truly are and is open for all to live across the globe regardless of religion, race or creed.
Absolutely – true religion doesn’t discriminate between backgrounds, professions or what you’ve done in the past or what you do now. It’s about truth, integrity, steadiness, commitment, always learning and building a life based on these principles that we already know deeply inside.
And most of all, you know it because every cell in your body celebrates rather than shuts downs or contracts in protection. To me it is so clear and unquestionable as my body just knows.
Yeh I remember sitting in church feeling so uncomfortable and like something was wrong with me, whereas when I listen or attend The Way of the Livingness presentations it’s confirms who I am and everything that’s possible.
I love how your share this. I was talking to a lady the other day and she said, why wasn’t I taught this as a kid. Its so simple and makes sense. As you sat in church you knew but because it was not common knowledge and spoken about, you doubted yourself.
Yeh true – as a child you know there is more to life than just what you see, so in a way religion and god make sense, but then it comes with all this other stuff – like hell, judgement, condemnation and sin that is the complete opposite of the magic we feel – I remember feeling so confused.
I bet you were confused! I wasn’t brought up with going to church and I was confused too. I grew up travelling and saw so many different religions and ways and people against each other that none of it made any sense whatsoever.
I remember also being confused as a child about how so many people can believe so many different things when it comes to religion – surely there is only one truth or God – so which one is actually true and why do so many people believe in other ones that are not true? … It’s amazing how much our ability to have common sense actually comes from our ability to feel the truth.
Rosie this is so true, The Way of The Livingness is open to all walks of life and to add to it further, age, countries, birth religions, sexuality, and cultures – it does not discriminate or segregate – WE Are All One.
Yes, it doesn’t matter how much money you have or don’t or what job you do. It is there for all of us.
The Way of The Livingness is a choice to live Heaven on Earth.
Well said Rosie, The Way of The Livingness is for all equally, and as you have shared, this fact is proven over and over with the many various people we meet along the way back to love. It shows us that we are all equal, it is only our choices that create the illusion that we are separate and different from our neighbour.
Kim, I love it! Here is the next bumper sticker:
WE ARE ALL EQUAL, IT IS ONLY OUR CHOICES THAT CREATE THE ILLUSION THAT WE ARE SEPARATE AND DIFFERENT FROM OUR NEIGHBOUR.
We could say that being a student of the Livingness is simply just being a student of life, and knowing that we can learn so much from life everyday, it’s an incredibly rich and beautiful way to approach life.
I guess being a student of life is like being able to see things with fresh eyes, this way we are more aware and can take things in, rather than from the approach of same old, same old, I already know it all because in this, we miss so much.
That’s a really cool way to put it, and also having a fresh approach to life everyday, in that knowing everyday we can learn something new.
Being open to learn something new is really important because learning can be so much fun. We only make learning hard when we are shut down or think we know everything already.
I agree, I think part of the magnificence of learning each day is knowing that there is more to life than just what we do, see and complete every day, that there is a grander purpose to our day than simply getting up and working and then going to bed.
Yes there is so much more to life than we can physically see…. it is quite grand really.
‘everything that has happened to me in my life is because of a choice I have made. Nothing just happens.’ Thanks for this reminder Rosie. Sometimes it seems hard to see a purpose in what looks like awful things happening to us but when we zoom out and take in account the bigger picture we can appreciate what is being shown and this can be a great learning and help build a stronger foundation for us now and in the future.
Zooming out and seeing the big picture is important, as I know for sure that I can get caught up in things and not realise that I made x, y, and z choice to get to where I am now and what I now have to deal with. And you are right… we may just need this experience right now, to prep us for something much bigger that we are needed for.
Having spent my life trying to be something and to discover that “It is not ever about what you do or what you have done – it is actually more about who you are’ is not necessarily very easy however it is so liberating.
Sometimes, when I feeling particular set in my comfortable ways and am being asked to step up (by no-one other than myself btw), I have a tantrum and wish I was blissfully ignorant of the Energetic responsibility we all have to bring all of ourselves to life to the best of our ability. But in truth, I feel blessed to have the awareness I now do and be living my life with ever-deepening love, integrity and responsibility (amongst many other deeply beautiful qualities). The Way of The Livingness has brought me back to life and I will be eternally grateful to Serge Benhayon for not holding back one iota of the magnificent Love he is.
Rosie I love the way you express your deep appreciation of The Way of The Livingness, it is deeply inspiring to feel how claimed you are and how you want to share this true way of living with the world.
Oh yes, I love it!
Yes, I too love your commitment to The Way of the Livingness Rosie.
The Way of The Livingness is not about where you come from, but where are we heading together while learning that the hard work to get there is pure joy.
Yes in truth we are returning to the love we innately are and know.
Returning to live ourselves in full, our magnificence.
True, and for each of us, it is quite different depending on where we are at, what we have done in the past and completely up to us as far as where we want to go to with our development.
The commitment you’ve made to yourself Rosie is clear and very beautiful, you have captured what true religion is as an everyday living thing.
The real deal only can come from living it; we know the way by living it, unfolding with every step taken.
Oh my words really cannot explain the enormous support I have received from Serge, Natalie, all of the practitioners, the student body, and the committed people I live with. For the first time in my life I have ever felt a real sense of community, a real sense of care, a real sense of “we are here to support one another”, never before has it been about everyone, everywhere I have been from the small town I come from to London or New York, I have only witnessed a life based on the thrive of the individual or the community within which the individual resides. What The Way of The Livingness presents is so much bigger than that, it is about the all – it is about every single human being on this planet. Thank you Serge, thank you Natalie, thank you Ancient Wisdom.
The Way of The Livingness is both personal and universal, a way for everyone based on the choices made and the quality being lived, and what is found on the way is the common factor that unites us all as one in essence.
Since being a student The Way of The Livingness I have discovered that there is a way to live with greater love in our lives, with greater understanding and awareness of the connection to myself, my body and of truth the resides within me. Being guided our inner-truth is what re-establishes a loving foundation within us, one that honors all equally, whereby we can naturally bring to life the realness of who we are, live the power of who we are, the love we all here and deserve to live.
When I look back on my past life I sometimes just shake my head with who was that person, the changes that are occurring in my life are amazing, what a divine offering of love it is to know that it doesn’t matter where we come from or what we have done it only matters that we connect to the love within and take responsibility for all our choices both past and present.
I am the same, I so appreciate the changes I have made and feel as if I have lived 2 very different lives in this one life!
Yep, I can confirm that as well. Just a few minutes ago while I was making my bed I remember how I used to sleep in a room which was completely upside down, with clothes on the floor, ash from cigarettes right next to my bed, food scattered around and all sorts of other disgusting things. Today, my room is just so lovely, it’s tidy, it’s clean, its just amazing to be in here and do whatever I need to do.
So good to look back and celebrate the changes we have made. Your room really does sound like worlds apart, and I bet your body loves you for it.
Your so cool, you are so claimed in your love of The Way, its inspiring!
I am so cool, I am on fire! nah, just messing around, but on a serious side, yes I am claimed, I have turned my life around and it is worth celebrating and appreciating all thanks to The Way of The Livingness.
Haha, you are amazing Rosie, definitely worth celebrating.
