The Way of The Livingness – Where can I Register?

“Honouring the love you are in full and bringing that into full human life forms the basis of a new worldly religious way known as The Way of The Livingness.”
Serge Benhayon Esoteric Teachings and Revelations, p 648

The number of university subjects today is expanding immensely. I remember a time when there was just Medicine, Biology, Law, Economics, Philosophy, Sports, Psychology, Science, Engineering, Arts and Linguistics – and that was mainly it. Today there are over 400 subjects one can study.

And so I asked myself – “What if ‘The Way of The Livingness’ was taught in university – and what would the students be like?”

I remember when I studied Law, it was quite straightforward – Mondays to Thursdays we had our classes from 8.00 am – 4.00 pm. In the semester breaks we had to write seminar papers. And the rest of the time everyone tried to earn money, live their relationships, go out etc. I had friends studying different subjects like Medicine, Biology, Economics and Business, but never did we truly share other interests. Studying and the rest of our lives were separate from each other. We had either a student-relationship or a friendship, but rarely were the two combined. It felt like my life was broken up into compartments –relationships, studies, workplaces, homes and cafés.

Another thing I remember is that one of the professors teaching Criminal Law was quite a phenomenon. He was older in years, and I loved his lectures – even though law lectures were normally anything but fun to listen to.

What impressed me was that he presented everything he taught us from his experience.

He was not a walking body of law in the sense of knowing and being able to repeat everything someone before him had written or said. He had lived with what he knew from all the court decisions, laws and files he had studied throughout his life and he taught from these experiences.

So today, being a student of ‘The Way of The Livingness’, I look at my fellow students and ask myself at times: what if the ‘The Way of The Livingness’ was taught at university, just like Law?

There would be one major difference: ‘The Way of The Livingness’ is a subject that is not separate from life – it is like what the old Romans called in Latin a “studium generale”. It includes everything: Health, Philosophy, Law, Economics, Astrology – or more simply, it is the study of the All. And it never ends. There’s no exam to pass, no marks to get. It is about understanding and expanding: it is about true evolution.

And the students are not asked to echo what they have learned: they are asked to live it, to embody everything, rather than filling their mind with knowledge only.

I love:

• The playfulness and the willingness to explore that the students of ‘The Way of The Livingness’ have.

• The questioning, the understanding and the normalcy of making mistakes here and there.

• The lightness of it.

• That there are only lessons to learn: it transforms “right and wrong arguments” into evolving humanity by living to the best of one’s ability for truth and love.

• That it is a constant way of evolving.

• That its base is the wisdom of the body and not only the intelligence of the brain.

That’s why I love being a student of ‘The Way of The Livingness’. I do observe in myself, and sometimes in the student body as well, that we make it about knowledge. That’s how we are raised and taught. I then ask myself: “Do we really have to repeat all the time, trying to improve and prove we are good students?“

Doing this makes the study of ‘The Way of The Livingness’ a subject like all others at university, based on comparison and the battle that comes with talking knowledge.

I sense that learning to embody the teachings and letting go of the structure I used in the past to study helps me to understand. And talking about things then makes me not just repeat them – I am able to express from an understanding, from a lived livingness.

I remember back at university I couldn’t even follow when fellow students were constantly repeating what they had just learned in Civil Law. It was very brainy and I remember getting very tired and losing focus a lot.

But I truly loved it when we were simply contemplating and sharing about what we had experienced and felt with and from what we had just learned, not in a way to become a ‘good lawyer’ one day – more in a way of understanding the coherence and what was shared, what others had explored before – just like the professor I mentioned earlier.

I am deeply fulfilled being a student of life, thankful for having met Serge Benhayon – who is teaching from his livingness, just as my professor of law did – just teaching the overall subject, seeing himself as a forever student. Teaching from his living truth is giving me the inspiration to contemplate, learn, question, make mistakes and expand – simply to explore me, life and everyone and everything around me. And I too can be a teacher of ‘The Way of The Livingness’ myself, simply by living me. We are all students and teachers at the same time.

And by me living my life as a student I might meet others who will ask: “What do you study?”

And I will answer: “The Way of The Livingness!”

And they’d reply: “Tell me about it!” – and from feeling my livingness they too may be inspired to ask: “Wow – where do I register?”

  1. It is very humbling to learn from somebody who has lived it and is teaching from that experience. There is no arrogance of the intellectual, know it all, but just a depth of understanding.

  2. Beautifully said Doug. I find when I focus on an end point in anything, it always feels like a deadline that I have to reach. By accepting there is no end point to anything we do, this really does blast the concept of perfectionism out of the picture, as we know we are always growing and evolving. And further, not only is there no perfection in this learning from the lessons in life that we receive every day, it is done without experiencing those lessons which, as you stated, are a pass or fail mentality.

  3. “We are all students and teachers at the same time.” From new born baby to elder years we are students and teachers for each other as we evolve with the support of the Ageless Wisdom.

  4. The Way of The Livingness has for me been the highlight of my life, and continues to be, for in learning what it is to live with true freedom through a deepening and honouring relationship with my essence, my Soul the love I am within, there is greater awareness of what life is about and what our true purpose here is. Every day there is more to explore and express from our Soul and it is this that allows us to live with true success and the power of who we are.

  5. I Loved to hear Serge Benhayon explain the meaning of a Sutra. It is not something you learn and keep in your head it is to integrate into your life. The way of the livingness is very much about understanding life and learning from it. I used to go through life making my choices from the ideals and beliefs I had adopted. So I was making my choices unconsciously or automatically never questioning the the truth or the validity of the belief that was driving me. I see this a lot in myself and I see it a lot in others. You only really learn when you look at what is driving you and if it is true or not. This brings more responsibility and conscious presence to the choices in life.

  6. I always find it easier to learn when someone is sharing from their own lived experience than when it is just knowledge alone. There is something about living experience that is easy to understand and grasp over just plain text.

    1. Totally agree Lieke it is more than just the words that is understood. Our Soul expresses volumes that communicates universal truth, we can feel and receive this quality, a quality that is absent when the mind expresses knowledge.

    2. I have found the same Lieke, it is much easier to learn something when that has been shared from a lived experience.

  7. “Teaching from his living truth is giving me the inspiration to contemplate, learn, question, make mistakes and expand – simply to explore me, life and everyone and everything around me. ” it is a religion that incorporates every aspect of life, in our every moment and our every movement knowing that how we live affects all others in the way of our livingness.

  8. I spent 6 years studying English in school and I thought I was excellent at it because that was what I got from my test results and school reports – then going to England, I found myself not even knowing how to ask for things in a shop. I knew many words and grammar and all that, but I didn’t know how to express myself and communicate with others. It was devastating to feel like a failure in life after having felt like a winner at school. It’s a real shame the same system is still in place after so many years, producing many knowledgeable but unprepared for life students.

  9. When someone talks from his/her experience we don’ t need to follow the story from the head. We feel from our body what is been shared.
    This supports us to stay present with ourselves. This way all teachings should be as all is first about the quality we express in that serves others too.

  10. Study has never been so inspiring and unifying for all, The Way of the Livingness bringing us all to a place of immense love and wisdom that resonates deep within our every cell.

  11. “What if ‘The Way of The Livingness’ was taught in university – and what would the students be like?” This is a great question, because it would be everything university is not, there would be no burning the candle at both ends, no cramming, no last minute assignment writing, and we would never hold on to the knowledge as if we owned it.

    1. Exactly Sally, studying The Way of The Livingness at some institution like university would be everything university is not!

  12. When we share from our experience there is a markedly different quality. I remember as a kid having a radar for people that would say one thing and be living a totally different way of being… this hypocritical way of living usually meant I wanted to do the opposite… whereas when it is lived there is a clear message that this way of living leads to a particular quality.

  13. Students aren’t asked to remember everything and regurgitate, but live it! What a profound difference that is.

  14. Knowing results from us studying something. Yet, the action of studying something may be either a brainy activity or a lived one. We have all experienced a knowledgeable person based on brainy dedication. It can be an overwhelming experience of how much do they know. Yet, the one who has lived and has his/her body also speaking to them, is the one you will never forget.

  15. To inspire another is to evolve another. May we all be a spark of inspiration for others so that we all evolve back to the love we are.

  16. To actually connect with divine wisdom within and live life from that rather than regurgitated information from outside of us, does put a very different perspective on life and the choices we make in it.

  17. “What impressed me was that he presented everything he taught us from his experience” – this statement hit it home for me, this is the difference between a lecture and a presentation. When it’s from a lived experience, everything universal comes through and that is the difference, it can be felt in every cell of my body. When someone is lecturing then intellect filters through and I must admit I too find it very tiring.

    The Way of The Livingness is our university, it is for all and there are no benchmarks and I love being the forever student – it has become my Way of Livingness without perfection.

  18. There is such a difference when we present something based on what we’ve understood from it and how we may perhaps have applied it, rather than just repeating knowledge. The former is alive and relatable, the later just leaves you cold.

  19. Where do I register for the way of the Livingness? We have already signed up by coming to earth as only by coming here can we live what we have registered for!

  20. Separating knowledge from lived experience makes knowledge no fun at all! It becomes all about the head with no heart in it at all. The Way of The Livingness is different in that it asks one to live a quality that is true and lived with everyone. Whilst there are studies and things to learn it does not offer anyone any true advancing benefit if taught without any heart.

  21. How we live can inspire, and that’s something for all of us to live and be, and that’s what I get so clearly from this piece, the joy in sharing what you live, and in embracing a full lived life being yourself.

  22. The best school and learning there is, The Way of The Livingness – school has never been this cool, but it has, when we learn from our heart, body and life as one.

  23. The ending to this article has offered me a moment of deep contemplation. The ease in which one can share themselves and how we live is so simple, that I began to consider that how much I truly love myself (or not), is what lies behind how easy (or not)it is to share my way of life with another.

  24. Awesome sharing.
    As you shared about your professor sharing from his Livingness, I began to feel the people in my life who have done the same, and without a doubt, they are the ones that I gained much from.

  25. The Way of The Livingness “it is the study of the All. And it never ends. There’s no exam to pass, no marks to get. It is about understanding and expanding: it is about true evolution.” And the course of evolution is to live the Way.

    1. Love that there is no pressure of the exam hall, or failing.. simply opportunities to learn and then do we take this one or need the wheel to turn one more time so we can take the next one. An endless supply of opportunities, offered with God’s generosity until we choose to evolve.

  26. Super cool Christina. I agree, it should be mandatory in schools that we get taught The Way of the Livingness. A subject that has no end goal, no rules and no exams. A simple reminder to come back to ourselves and to re-learn that we’re enough. This would change education for good.

    1. The education system certainly needs changing as it stands, so coming back to ourselves and to knowing that we are more than enough, we are magnificent is essential.

  27. Being a student of The Way of the Livingness has transformed my life more than any combination of degrees and postgraduate qualifications ever could. There is no pinnacle to reach and no qualification awarded but I celebrate with every lesson learned as I make my way back to soul.

  28. ‘I remember back at university I couldn’t even follow when fellow students were constantly repeating what they had just learned in Civil Law…’ This is so ‘on the money’ for me and reflects perfectly my experience at school. Whether I did well in a subject had more to do with whether the teacher lived their subject and spoke from the congruence of their body…or not. When something was just presented mentally and without lived experience, I felt lost. Those who teach from their livingness offer something very real in what they share and to me, this is the key to the ‘art’ of teaching – and hence, the joy of being a ‘forever student’.

  29. I can only truly inspire another through the way I live, my livingness. I have three kids and my role as a parent is to live what is true to me by clearing all that which is not true in every area of my life.

  30. “The Way of The Livingness – Where can I Register?” – within…. in connection to our Inner Heart – there we find that registration is eternally open for everyone equally and always has been.

  31. It makes sense that the lectures were more interesting when they were given from a lived experience, because living is what we can all relate to, living is fundamental to human life and when we share our experiences it makes us all grow and understand a little bit more each time and this perhaps is what is meant by expansion and evolution – to understand more.
