Being a Student of The Way of The Livingness

I am a student of the Way of The Livingness – I have been for the last 6 years.

The Way of The Livingness

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.

  1. What this blog – and my experience of The Way of The Livingness shows me – is that no matter who we are, what we do or what we have done, there is an essence within us all that is equal, true and harmonious. We can all reconnect to this Living Way if we choose to and set our apparent differences aside.

  2. Thank you Rosie, that is a super cute photo of you. The Way of The Livingness is for everyone, it’s the way of the soul on earth, and a soul is something we all have. No one is special or excluded for any reason (including gender and sexuality) as all are equal. This is particularly dear to me because as a child and later as an adult I have never felt anything that ostracised or excluded others (particularly in religion) was right. We know in our hearts we are all equal.

  3. We have all walked different steps that have resulted in different experiences for us, but the more we share the reality of where we have been due to our choices and what we have subsequently healed, the more open we are to the amazingness of what we are actually learning and where we are together going.

  4. ‘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.’ The only thing that counts is right now, to don’t look back but to become ourselves, appreciate what is in front of us and go from there. To expand the love that lives inside us and to do this with people from all walks of life and from all over the world is just amazing.

  5. “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.” Letting go of the identification of what I have done to give me value, worth and status has been a great struggle for me as I had so little self-worth in just being me. Learning to, ‘Just being me’, is being a student of The Way of The Livingness – how crazy is that, that one has to re-learn being oneself? It completely turns education and all one strives for in the present society on its head.

    1. Yes, it is crazy when you say it like that! One has to re-learn to be oneself!!! Why on earth did we not learn to just love and accept ourselves right from the start?? Why has it been so much about fitting it, ticking the box and not letting people see or feel the real you?

  6. The Way of The Livingness is an open invitation to everyone both to walk with the World Teachers and to work in the quality of our movements so to magnify the power of our walking together.

  7. “It does not matter where you come from or what you have done. None of that matters” So true. The Way of The Livingness is all about the being not the doing. Which is rare these days as we live to be all about the doing.

  8. Energetic responsibility as presented by Universal Medicine is beautiful in the way it asks us to be more aware and honest with ourselves about the energy behind the choices we make and the impact that this has on not just ourselves or a select few but all of us. In my experience we can hold many ideals, beliefs or pictures around what the word responsibility means to us but bringing it back to the energy behind our choices or way of living helps to strip these ideals away and leave us with more clarity in our day-to-day lives.

  9. When The Way Of The Livingness is lived, one of the things we realise is the equality of humanity, no matter what background we are from, there is an essence within us that is equal. And it is from this foundation and essence we go through life with, we deepen our Livingness and our love.

  10. Like so many others I am a student of The Way of The Livingness and more and more I am seeing the world clearer and clearer. As the article is saying it brings in people from all walks of life which is no coincidence as this gives me a more rounder and rounder view of things. I didn’t understand the world as it was, it didn’t make sense while at the same time I knew there was more, The Way of The Livingness has supported all of this and through people and my relationship to them and myself I have learnt more than any other time in my life. I am blessed and thankful to everything and everyone around me and appreciate things more then ever before.

  11. I love how taking greater care of ourselves and bringing more quality into our movements, living from and honouring the body is so confirmed in The Way of The Livingness, and how this informs everything in our lives.

  12. Taking responsibility for our choices are not only life changing but very empowering and The Way of The Livingness supports us beautifully to feel the difference when we choose to live this way.

  13. I agree Rosie, the Way of The Livingness gives us all an opportunity to choose to reconnect back to our essence, there are no rules to follow, no instructions, only our own choice to feel what is true and what is not.

  14. When we start to take full responsibility for our lives, blame is no longer an option, every choice we make leads to the next. Energetic responsibility offers a much greater awareness of why I make the choices I do and this understanding has changed my life enormously.

  15. So true Rosie, this way of living is for everyone “All that this way of living really asks of you is to be aware of yourself and to take responsibility for your choices.” If we allowed ourselves to be who we are without trying to protect ourselves or gain advantage over another we would live in a very different way. I love that The Way of The Livingness has shown me so many people from so many walks of life who walk the talk and inspire me and others to build that consistency in their own lives as well.

  16. I love how you share you have met people from all ways of life and that of all these people their lives have changed by living The Way of The Livingness. It reminds me that however different we are on the outside and by our lifestyles we are all the same inside and can connect to that all equally.

  17. “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 love this Rosie. Serge Benhayon presents and we take from it what we will. All our own choice. What could possibly be wrong with that?

    1. Very true sueq2012, we all have a choice to live in alignment to love or not, but once we discover the magic of true love in our lives one wonders why we would ever choose anything else?

  18. Taking responsibility for my choices and choosing not to blame others for them has transformed my relationship with myself and others. I too love being a student of The Way of The Livingness and the many inspiring people I have also met.

    1. It is so inspiring when we see others take responsibility… it allows us to see it in action and that we can choose that too… and oh so great when stop playing the blame game.

  19. ‘All that this way of living really asks of you is to be aware of yourself and to take responsibility for your choices.’ Beautifully expressed Rosie, there are no rules and regulations just a willingness to look at yourself with love and be true to who you really are whatever your choices have been up to this point. It is never too late for a person to make changes and The Way of The Livingness is there to support all.

  20. One of the things I love hearing about from fellow students of the Livingness, is how so many people have gone from withdrawing from life to be fully committed to life. Bringing themselves back into their communities, working purposefully, being with people, and loving life again.

    1. And there are so many and as they do this, they are inspiring others too. As one of my work colleagues said to me, you are rubbing off on me!

    2. It is true, it is painful to see someone who has given up on life. To watch someone turn that around, by their own choice to re-commit to life and to love and to see they can be the change they want to see in it, is truly inspirational.

      1. It sure is inspirational to watch someone completely transform their lives and through the Way of the Livingness there are countless examples of people who have done just that. It is never ever too late and we should never condemn anyone for the choices they have made because we are all love 1st and foremost.

  21. I love hearing about people’s real life experiences too, their learnings, transformations and evolution. And I’ve been blessed to hear many very inspiring ones from students of The Way of The Livingness.

  22. Yes it would change everything. No more blaming and expecting someone else to fix us as we would all clearly see we just need to adjust our choices.

  23. Different from other reigions that require some ‘pedigree’ and a past of religious rites building to the present, The Way of The Livingness does not require pedigree or rites. There are no pictures of the past we have to confirm to. It is about the present that can be lived with qualities of the future that is already waiting for us.

    1. I agree with you here Eduardo, there is nothing that you need or should have done and nothing that you should do to be part of The Way of The Livingness. It is for everyone.

  24. The Way of The Livingness is a joyful return (although challenging to our outdated ideals and beliefs) to the innate and divine essence within – a totally natural way of being, patiently waiting for all to make a choice to return to and live by Universal Laws and Ancient Wisdom.
    “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”.

  25. I am with you with every word Rosie. I have also experienced and witnessed that The Way of The Livingness is for everyone, as it is the way we can live in connection to who we are, through which truth, love and Soulfulness is a way of life.

  26. The Way of The Livingness is about my own relationship with evolution, therefore there cannot be any comparison between students, nor can there be dogma because each of us has our own relationship with ourselves and the choices we are making.

    1. And no matter what your choices are, it doesn’t make you better or less than me or anyone else. It is just different choices, nada mas.

  27. As you so wisely point out Rosie The Way of the Livingness is available and accessible for everybody; the choice is always ours. The Way of the Livingness simply asks us to take responsibility for our choices.

  28. Thank you Rosie, I too love being a student of The Way of The Livingness, it has turned my life around in so many ways. I love hearing the amazing stories of the before and after of student’s lives, it is just so amazing to hear where they have come from and the claiming of who they truly are, sons of God in brotherhood.

  29. The Way of The Livingness is who you are in everything you do, say, think and in every movement you make, it is the Way you Live. No trying to get anywhere or achieve anything just a choice to allow more of the love of who you already are to shine through.

  30. My life now has purpose, commitment and responsibility and lots of loving connections with others. How I live now is so different to how I have been living and i hope that this is being reflected to everyone in my life so they can make choices about how they live as well.

  31. This openness to everyone from all walks of life feels very different to other groups in the world today. And part of me has shied away from the world in reaction to the lack of openness that The Way of The Livingness freely shares. But even just saying that completely goes against what has been shown to me through this religion in that it is open to everybody and that it is the quality of openness that breaks down those walls we maintain between each other, because at one point I was completely closed down myself until being presented with another way life could be lived if I so chose to. The Way of The Livingness is not a group that is to remain secular and keep this quality to themselves as this quality that is connected to feels even greater when shared with others and I am learning that sharing who I truly am, a lover of people and connection, makes for a far richer life than holding onto the guards or hiding away from people.

  32. “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” So true Rosie and the amazing thing is once I really began to take responsibility for my choices my life really did change and for the first time in my life I could say I actually began to enjoy life

  33. So beautifully said Rosie. It amazes me how many people have changed beyond recognition from closed and guarded to people who’s open hearts and open faces are a joy to see.

  34. Rosie I also love hearing all the stories of people, how they have completely changed and transformed their lives in completely different ways. The one thing that unites us all is that life was not the vital, joyful experience it could be – and today there is a commitment to live this truth. It’s humbling and inspiring, showing nothing in the world can affect our inner truth our essence and our connection with God.

  35. The Way of the Livingness is open to all people of all ages, there are no have- tos, no rules or regulations nothing to get right, but the freedom to just be who you truly are, the stories from the student body about life changes is nothing short of amazing, this is a joy we all share reflecting to each other in brotherhood.

  36. Rosie, there’s such a freedom in the Way of The Livingness and it’s very much about who you are, and not ever about what you do. Indeed one of the many things I appreciate about it, is that it’s about living you in every moment without any perfection and sharing that you with all of the world. I could not imagine living another way.

  37. The beauty of The Way of the Livingness is it can be lived at any stage in life. Many families and children live this way. Young people have found it supports them to steer clear of the many traps of adolescence and teenage years: drugs, alcohol, nicotine abuse, self harm and promiscuity. I came to the Way of the Livingness in my mid-fifties, and now a elder woman in her 60’s (and once victim to all the aforementioned traps) I find great joy observing young people staying true to themselves because of The Way of Livingness and have not chosen the path of self abuse like so many of their peers.

    1. Not that long ago, just 7 years my normal was smoking and drinking, it is sociably accepted and is what you do. Today it is so far from my normal and I was chatting to my teenager and I was explaining about how I started smoking and drinking because everyone around me did it. I never ever stopped to consider it could be bad for your health as every one was doing it. What I love now though is that my daughter can see two very different ways and she is free to choose based on what she can see clearly.

      1. I love that you can share with your daughter the two different ways of being and consequence of each. In this way she is treated as a responsible and capable of making her own choices. In my youth, I simply rebelled against strict rules and what felt like impositions on my freedom (my parents didn’t know how to be any different). What was missing from an early age was honest and open communication with my parents about human life. ‘Life’ and our part in it was never mentioned. The new awareness as taught by Universal Medicine places personal responsibility central to our lives: we can create a better world for all, but first we must tenderly care for ourselves.

      2. Open communication changes everything doesn’t it as it allows us to have understanding and to connect with each other.

  38. The Way of the Livingness teaches us how to live and be in life. Life is the biggest school, and yet most people live largely in ignorance of how to live it successfully. Before the Way of the Livingness, I wandered, searched and fell many times. Choosing to be a student of The Way of the Livingness placed responsibility gently back in my hands and I am grateful it did. It also brought awareness, healing, purpose, truly changed me from inside out, and the way I live my life.

  39. The Way of The Livingness puts responsibility back into our hands, and we all can choose to take this responsibility and live in a way that is in connection with religion, philosophy and science. Choosing to be aware and taking the responsibility when we have chosen not to be.

  40. It is empowering to hear the stories of the lives that people have come from, to transform to what they live today due to the power of the choices they have made. It is deeply inspiring to see what is possible when people choose from love rather than their hurt.

  41. There is something truly profound to have found a course of study or a way of living that is applicable to all… rich or poor, young or old, bright or dull. These aspects of us become irrelevant as the focus becomes on the bringing out the gold within, and taking up the responsibility to shine that out, sharing our gorgeousness with others so they too can be inspired to live theirs.

  42. The Way of The Livingness – “It is not ever about what you do or what you have done – it is actually more about who you are.” This is the beauty of living The Way of The Livingness as it brings me back to me and from that in relationship with all other people, nature, the universe and with God, the origin we all come from and have to return to.

  43. Beautiful Rosie – I can sense the absolute magnificent change that is actually not even possible to be described by words only – this is why The Way of The Livingness is so important – because by virtue of seeing a living way, we learn , and also when then that livingness is being shared by words. Incredible powerful and healing. So you walking and talking, writing and reading, is a blessing to mankind. It is our livingness that reflects the All (universe).

  44. Rosie, you highlight many of the things I love about the Way of the Livingness too, that it’s for everyone and anyone no matter where they come from, where they’ve been or how much or how little they have. Anyone can choose it, and for those who do, it’s a journey of unfolding back to themselves and the understanding you highlight that everyone is where they are based on their choices and that being the case they have the power to take responsibility for those choices and change them if they wish.

  45. ‘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.’ And how tempting it has been for me to not make rules and ‘should do’s’ out of what I heard, trying to make it knowledge instead of living it and making it my own lived experience and thus wisdom. All to not take responsibility for my choices but as I am a Student I am learning and getting more and more honest about what I choose and how aware I actually am.

  46. ‘Nothing just happens.’ I was aware before becoming a Student of the Livingness that nothing just happens but what I did with it was not observing life and how I and others lived, but I was blaming others for the things that happened; I was judging myself and others and was always quick to condemn myself. The Way of the Livingness brought true love and understanding into my life, and all the lovely people from all over the world. I am so rich being part of this group which is forever expanding and growing. And just like you Rosie I can say ‘I love being a student of The Way of The Livingness – it is now my way.’

  47. It is inspiring to read how you have incorporated God and divinity in your life. That it is just a very personal and normal aspect of us being a human, living on planet Earth and that in that we do not need to be part of a certain congregation or institution.

  48. I totally agree with you, Rosie – the Way of The Livingness is for and about everyone equally, universally, no matter who they are. It’s so diverse and common at the same time.

    1. Yes and it really doesn’t matter who you are or where in the world you are as we can all access it if we want.
