In our present time of wars, drug wars, binge drinking, corruption at all levels (e.g. from pharmaceutical and weapons industries all the way down to local government), religious fanatics killing and enslaving, the booming global slave trade (now referred to as human trafficking, including child trafficking, sex trafficking and refugee extortion), poverty, extreme wealth, abuse, cyber abuse, self abuse, bullying, suicide – the list could go on and on – where is the love in this world? Where has the love gone?
Were not all religions originally based on love? Were not all religions originally from the one religion of love?
Love for one another, love thy neighbour, love all of mankind, love will save the world, love is all we need, love conquers all, unconditional love… but what have many institutionalised religions become? Nothing but a human created set of rules (sometimes cruel, harsh and discriminating and definitely NOT loving) based upon some old scriptures that have been twisted and turned, re-written and re-translated to become the basis of how almost the whole of humanity act, think, indulge, hate and disregard one another.
I stop now and think; I have been a part of this, joining the masses, saying this is normal, ‘I’m all right Jack’, ‘we have to look after our own’, or just hiding inside my own little bubble of life, doing my own thing, cutting off the rest of humanity as though I was not a part of them and they were not a part of me. A ‘part’ of this, not by being a drug trafficker or any of the other abhorrent pastimes listed above, but a part of it nonetheless by accepting that all this happens, and never doing anything about it.
We can all do something about the state of the world we live in, from the smallest word lovingly spoken to the greatest act of love; every single loving act will conduce towards a more harmonious society.
Yes I did hear all those love statements and think “yea, OK, nice thoughts, lovely sentiment, but really I mean, really, does anyone, apart from the Dalai Lama that is, think that it is possible to not just love thy neighbour but love the whole of humanity?”
The answer is YES, there are many people who truly believe; large and small groups spread across the globe, growing steadily in number, in strength and most important of all, in love.
Normal everyday people who truly believe that love is the way, laying down the foundations for a better world to live in for the generations to come. Already enjoying harmonious lives and living examples of true beauty. Lovingly helping others around them unconditionally.
Through the living example of love personified, Serge Benhayon, his family and Universal Medicine, with an ever growing number of students practising true love for all humanity, there is the greatest possibility to find where the love is. It has not gone anywhere, it can be found inside us all! Truly inspired!

The Word Love
A True Love Letter for Serge Benhayon
So what is religion?

Yesterday I could appreciate the natural connection I feel with the Benhayon family. There’s no need to meet them in person. It’s not being attached to what we could do together, it just is within me. This experience led me to feel the fact that my true connection with love is there, within myself all the time with no need to say or do anything. It was very revealing to me because many times in my life I believed that something in me was wrong and needed to be fixed. So feeling the natural flow of love I was born with was very life changing. Surrendering to this fact clears lifetimes of the self-abuse and neglect I have allowed towards myself. This world is no longer the same when we choose Love.
What you have written here is so true Christopher
“Through the living example of love personified, Serge Benhayon, his family and Universal Medicine, with an ever growing number of students practising true love for all humanity, there is the greatest possibility to find where the love is.

I am constantly inspired through the reflection of the Benhayon family to live in a way that is harmless to myself and others. If we were to all live in this way the world would change over night because it would be impossible to harm another because we could not contemplate harming ourselves.
Love what you have shared Chris, as Love for many has become a lost cause, so now more than ever it is imperative to reflect what True Love is and shares. Because being Loving on so many levels has not been shared until this era and it is now unparalleled in its delivery by the presentation of Serge Benhayon that now typify the levels of being Love and what is available to us all equally.
I had a similar reaction to you Christopher, coming across small & large group of people who stand out by their integrity & depth of care for another really changed my perspective to realise that I can live that way also.
We can never under-estimate the healing power of love, as it is from the smallest act of love that so much change can flow. But it is the seemingly never-ending love-less acts from all around the world which get our attention daily. So, doesn’t it make sense that if these damaging acts can cause such carnage, that acts that come from nothing but love can bring healing? Just imagine how the world would change if today each and every one of us brought love to every single thing that we did; imagine those love-filled ripples flowing on out and out…
We are surrounded by the chaos created by humanity but we are equally surrounded and have passing through us the Divine Love of God. It is a choice for each and everyone of us to reconnect to our inner essence of Love and change the world.
So true Elizabeth it is us that have chosen to separate from love, so we can at any moment chose to reconnect to it. The sad thing is we have bastardised the word ‘love’ so much that we no longer know the true meaning of the word, so we think we are returning or reconnecting to love, but in truth it is usually just another flavour of the bastardised version
So true Christopher. We have countless songs, books and other written documents sprouting that love is the be all end all – but do we collectively live and express it as a quality in everything that we say and every movement we make?
No, love is not collectively lived by all, which is why we ask, ‘where is the love in this world?’
For love to have gone somewhere it implies that love is something outside of ourselves, but this is not the case. Love is something that is inside of us, but will stay inside if we don’t express it to ourselves and then to one another.
We are innately love, do we connect with this love, and do we express and share this love?
It seems that where there is love there is also the counter force in its many guises and those who would corrupt it.
Awesome Christopher to read your blog, the answer to your questions I would not have been able to answer say 6 years ago but now, I know without a doubt that love hasn’t gone anywhere but it is within us all waiting to be expressed and lived. I used to wonder where love has gone but being able to feel love within myself and within everyone I meet has been an amazing confirmation that love lives strongly within us all.
I too used to “wonder where love had gone” but in those days I can see that I really didn’t know what love truly is as I was so caught up in the emotional interpretation we have been fed for so long. To know that love can’t go anywhere as it is an intrinsic part of me, and can only be buried not lost, has certainly changed the way I live, how I love me and how I love everyone else.
Being love and expressing love is fundamental to who we are and if we have forgotten that then it is telling us that we have disconnected from our essence.
When I talk to people I get the feeling that most of us have forgotten what love is due to stepping away from love for such a long time. But it doesn’t take much for us to reconnect to love when we are ready to embrace it again.
We are here to be love, and to express love, ‘We can all do something about the state of the world we live in, from the smallest word lovingly spoken to the greatest act of love’.
We have come to a level of corruption in this world that is set by the loveleness of our choices, our will to be not who we truly are from here the mass destruction was let in.. Being it ; rape, discrimination, poverty, molestation, murder, suppresion, human trafficing, drug use, crime, money laundring, cursing, speaking bad about another, being dismissive and protected, acting careless to one and another and so much more etc. Is all that we are not. We have made life about that even if it is about talking for change, but not truly change or be that love that we innately are. We have gone so far away from our essence. That we need to see that this all was one big set up
– a creation, the opposite of our love. Which of course, because it is a replica of love in its opposite form creates everything in lovelessness.
Where is the love is a great question – you don’t even need to look at big astrocities to feel it’s missing – you just need to go into the supermarket and observe how people treat each other … we are accepting so much less than we deserve.
Yes, it is great to ask the question because otherwise it almost gets normal that the love is so missing in society today.
And perhaps our normal today is so far away from what is possible…
Yes true, it gets common yet it will never be our ‘true normal’.
Love has not gone anywhere. We are that which we think we need and seek, we are chasing our own tail, making sure that we give ourselves only a glimpse to keep us in a hope, which actually keeps us in this crazy chase.
Love is inside us all, do we feed and nourish this love, and then share it with the world? ‘It has not gone anywhere, it can be found inside us all!’
Whilst we may be able to say that we are not actively part of all the atrocities that happen in the world, we still allow it all to happen by putting into this world loveless energy from all our unloving acts, be it the smallest abuse of our body to the more extreme forms we commonly know.
Expressing our love to all equally is what’s needed in a world that has held back and reduced their divine and true selves.
That’s very sweet Christopher – the love hasn’t gone anywhere, it can be found inside of every single one of us.
“We can all do something about the state of the world we live in…” – Absolutely, the way we live our everyday, how we are at home, at work, with family, friends, anyone we meet, all has a ripple effect and makes a difference.
We can and do reflect the way we live to humanity, what do we want to reflect?
A great blog to highlight how far we have stepped away from love in order for these things to take place, we all have a responsibility to bring more love into the world, because for each loving step or moment the world gets to equally feel that love.
Absolutely Sally, ‘we all have a responsibility to bring more love into the world’.
We can give in and succumb to the cruelty of this world or we can step by step live by what our heart is telling us and with that lay a foundation of love slowly but steadily that we all one day will stand on.
It shows us how far we have descend away from our true nature – love, and how much we have hurt ourselves by not being that love with each other. It now takes us to see the corruption, pain, suffering, hate, murder, rape, discrimination, poverty, abuse, swearing and so much more, for us to face what the effects are when we choose to not be that absolute love that we are.
Visions of normal that are not true, true that is not normal. We know this too well. Normalising true is the next bit we are being asked for since we can recognize true with all our particles
Beautiful Blog, it is something to truly grasp, accept and appreciate, each moment that a loving gesture is made, the whole world is blessed by this grace. Therefore each and every one of us is then bringing to our world the change we all dearly want, every moment love is lived.
Hearing a policeman talk recently about paedophilia, he made it very clear that it could not happen or at least reoccur without enablers – the people who suspect or know but never do a thing to stop the things that we say we abhor in society. This is an extreme case but I can see how this happens in other areas of life like at work, where everyone allows the bully to continue their behaviour, so long as it’s not targeted at them.
This is an extreme example, but very significant. If I am honest with myself, I have certainly allowed abusive behavior to continue. Honestly looking at why I allow this to be the case is the beginnings of acting differently as such experiences come my way.
I love this line: ” every single loving act will conduce towards a more harmonious society. ” Every moment we can either contribute to a more loving society or contribute to what we currently have where people don’t seem to truly care about other people unless they are friends or family.
Will we ever live our true potential if we base the way we live and compare ourselves to the extremes of evil and abuse that exist in our civilization today? If we settle that we are OK because we are at least not killing or enslaving another, are we really evolving. What if we were to hold ‘love’ as the marker of who we are first, that we are first the Sons of God, and our true living way is to live the love we are through our connection to our Soul? A not so obscure possibility and reality that is already being explored and consistently lived today by a global community through a religion known as The Way of The Livingness.
There is much emphasis on what we leave for the next generation when it comes to the state of our planet, our government and so on, and rightly so, but there is not much talk among families or society that we need to let go of unloving beliefs, ideals and so called traditions that we hold on to, so that our young are free to be themselves.
Yes, agree Aimee. The greatest gift we can leave for future generations, is the way to live in connection to our Soul, our Godliness, who we are, as this is where that love is really and always at.
Living love, being love adds more love to the world, which is truly needed, ‘every single loving act will conduce towards a more harmonious society.’
Where has the love gone? It never went! It has always been within us and around us, it is just a matter of what do we truly feel and what are we aligned to? .. as well as, what do we choose in our day to day living and choices. This is still work in progress for me and will be forever more. It is my true life purpose returning back to the love I truly am and loving all others equally. One thing is for sure and that is Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine have stupendously paved the way with regards to this for all of humanity and continue to do so ✨
Love has indeed gone nowhere, it was there all along inside each everyone of us. The trick is to inspire people to connect back to it and stop looking outside of themselves.
Self love is the key to all our woes and issues in life.
Building a foundation of love for self is a great start, and then allow this love to emanate out into the world.
Deep to the core of us we are love but this love has been veiled due to the reinterpretation of the word ‘love’ so we have come to settle for its emotional counterpart and not the fiery love of God that burns deep within us all.

Truly beautiful Christopher, love has not gone anywhere but has been literally around all the time and it simply comes back to us to choose love to be our constant guiding light in our life.
