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. Well said Rosie. The Way of The Livingness changes lives, that is beyond doubt. I know hundreds and hundreds of people whose lives have been transformed by it and all in a good way. But it asks us to look at our part in everything and our responsibility too and most of us are living in such deep irresponsibility that the last thing we want is to be more responsible. But in time we will all come to see that we do not have a choice long term. Yes short term we can keep choosing irresponsibility and repeating the same choices that have never worked for us all, but eventually our revolutions around the sun will bring us to see that not only has it never worked, but that it also will and can never work.

  2. “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.

  3. “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.

  4. 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.

  5. In-truth there are no borders between us nor boundaries that define us lest the ones we erect to keep each other out.

  6. The Way of The Livingness religion fully accepts that everyone is the son of God no matter their background, lifestyle, religion or ethnicity. It reveals the way of living in true brotherhood, which is our purpose for being here on earth.

    1. If we are all the son of God which we are, then we are all the children of the one father. This we have been offered many times over the millennia but we have never fully embraced it. We are all the children of the one father and that means that every single one of us is part of the same family. This is the truth of family, not the blood family that we have taken family to mean.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

    1. Yes, once you know who you are at least to some degree then everything you say applies and we have that choice.

  16. 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?’

  17. 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.

  18. If something works this well with lots of personal reports then it is probably worth investigating further.

  19. ‘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.

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

    1. 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.

      1. 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.

      2. 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.

      3. 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.

      4. 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.

      5. 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.

  24. 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.

    1. 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.

  25. The Way of The Livingness Religion simply inspires us to reconnect with our inner heart and to take responsibility for all the choices we have made in the past and will make in the future.

  26. 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.

    1. Kim, I love it! Here is the next bumper sticker:


  27. 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.

    1. 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.

      1. 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.

      2. 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.

      3. 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.

  28. ‘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.

    1. 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.

  29. 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.

  30. For me, being a student of The Way of The livingness means being a student of myself so as to keep unfolding who I am in essence and to live from this place, to the best of my ability.

  31. 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.

  32. 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.

  33. When we choose to be student of The Way of the Livingness we are choosing to be students of ourselves and of life. This is a constant deepening, learning and understanding of our evolutionary process and of our individual and collective responsibility in ensuring that we maintain this as our focus, to the best of our ability,as we go about our daily lives while here on earth.

    1. 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.

  34. The real deal only can come from living it; we know the way by living it, unfolding with every step taken.

  35. 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.

  36. 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.

  37. 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.

  38. 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.

    1. 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!

      1. 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.

      2. 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.

    1. 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.

  39. 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.

  40. Being a student of The Way of The Livingness places responsibility fairly and squarely back in our own hands, where it belongs. No more blaming another or being a victim of life, but living our lives, to the best of our ability, with integrity, purpose and love for ourselves and all others.,

    1. When we stop the blame, thats when changes happen. When just take responsibility for every part even if it is uncomfortable.

  41. 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.

  42. 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.

  43. ‘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.

  44. “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?
