Brotherhood Here on Earth

There is so much in life that I have chased in the hope it would be the magical ‘thing’ that would bring all my heart desired, but time and time again, life proved to me that this was never going to be the case. It wasn’t the home I bought, the overseas holiday, the job of my dreams – it was a moment where I felt that Brotherhood, in the true sense, would be lived here on Earth.

I knew in my heart brotherhood existed, but too many years of being tumbled around in life, settling for less in relationships, and then less again, weakened this knowing and soon I didn’t believe that I would ever find what this void in relationships was about, so I gave up. I gave up hoping, I gave up knowing, I gave up on humanity and I gave up on me.

I accepted my despondency about life – that people could be truly supportive and caring to each other. When I wasn’t hiding away from people to avoid having to feel the emptiness in myself and in my relationships, I would liven life up with a holiday or project or seek complication to invest myself in and flutter the time away. Coming to Universal Medicine certainly changed my life. I learned, once again, about love, something that I too had given up on. Without love for myself, I wasn’t able to truly love another. It is now clear to me, that without allowing love, this feeling of true Brotherhood would have always been beyond my grasp.

Recently though I experienced an amazing moment that has turned all this on its head. I was messaging with a friend on the other side of the world. We did not know each other well and had spent little time together one-on-one. He had posed a question to a group and as I started to answer, he popped on and we began to chat. The to-ing and fro-ing was so lovely, the wisdom in the conversation so inspiring, and in that, I felt something I had been searching for my whole life – true Brotherhood.

What I experienced was a moment where I felt that we were both the student and the teacher. The sharing between us felt amazing; a feeling so powerful, an equality that asked me to be more.

Similarly, I had felt the loveliness of this feeling of equality and connectedness with another in a conversation with Serge Benhayon a couple of months prior. Expressing from a grand pool of wisdom, hearing the words flow from my mouth and the steadiness that I felt in my body, allowed me to see that there was much more to me and to life, and that people could connect on a much deeper level than what I had resorted to in everyday life. I knew then that if I could feel like this once, it was attainable again, and it was here for us all.

In both situations I did not play less and was not treated as less. In my life I have often felt a strange feeling come into conversations, like dominance, control, power-plays and off-loading of emotion, but not in these two situations. Here I was treated as an equal and my heart opened wide. The love that I felt inside myself was monumental, so much that it brought tears to my eyes.

I realised that much of my ‘given up-ness’ was really that I had given up on myself and humanity being able to interrelate with this particular quality. I had felt so much rot and abrasiveness in society, and the relationships I chose did not allow the quality or depth that I knew could be there. I wanted so much to feel the quality of Brotherhood in its true essence in my daily life. Not feeling this created an inner disturbance or disharmony that could outplay with frustration.

Until now, I did not realize how important Brotherhood was to me and just how much I really love people. And neither did I know in absoluteness that here on Earth we could have the quality of love in relationship with each other that is available, or more rightly, a quality that is so expansive that it feels like heaven here on earth.

These moments of true Brotherhood have changed the game for me, as I am able to see both the love and the love-less-ness in the world with clarity and a steadiness.

By feeling the essence of Brotherhood, I now know that it is here for us all and that one day we will live each day from this quality of love, equality, and tenderness, exploring life where we are student and teacher all rolled into one.

Thank you Serge Benhayon for showing me the essence of Brotherhood that I knew to be true in my heart.

  1. It’s ironic that most of us spend our whole life keeping people out seeking to fill the emptiness that can only be truly fulfilled by letting people in again.

  2. Serge Benhayon is an inspiration by which so many people have re-ignited their love for themselves and others when previously they, too, had given up on life.

  3. Our error is that we look for Brotherhood outside of ourselves instead of deeply connecting to the Oneness that lives and breathes within us and then bringing this quality through into all that we do and everyone we meet. Because it is equally living within all others also, the embodiment of true Brotherhood helps others see that they are also of this love and this light. We are never here alone, even when working on our own.

  4. Last weekend we gathered in a group of students of the Livingness to attend a workshop held by Universal Medicine. Natalie Benhayon’s presentation invited to us to explore and share together about a particular topic. The togetherness and equality, the openness and no need to say or do anything to impress anyone, the ease, lightness and fun was there to be enjoyed with each other. Every word spoken from my fellow students felt very enriching and invited me to be more and to deepen in my connection with myself and my body. Certainly I realized that we are here together to evolve and to reconnect back to the amazing beings we really are.

  5. Brilliant blog Maree, your sharing on how tender and open we can be with each other melts the old ways of control, hardness, comparison…that we have stablished in our society. What you shared here feels very natural and confirms the fact that deep down inside we know what we craved most for so long, a deeper connection with ourselves and others.

  6. Building love within ourself does lay the foundation for truly bringing love to all our other relationships and supports us to be steady and not so reactive to unloving expressions.

  7. Coming back from the supermarket sometime ago I had this realisation that I really do love people, the joy I felt within connecting with sometimes only a moment shows me the love and connection of brother hood that we all are and come from.

    1. That’s awesome Jill. Loving people is natural for us, it is not something to try or to develop for a special few, there is a big amount of love in every part of us to be shared and expressed with everyone everywhere we go, how wonderful.

  8. It is a wonderful thing, to recognise how much you love people. With love in this instance being a beholding quality and nothing less.

  9. This is a beautiful correlation to make – the connection between giving up on oneself and seeing that there is no true brotherhood being lived here. And what’s more, is how this can inspire oneself to bring brotherhood back again, because even if it is not being lived, we still all have it within us to express, and sometimes it only takes one person to stand up that can make all the difference.

  10. When we understand and truly live in brotherhood, the lovelessness in the world no longer overwhelms us. We are more able to see the love that is within us and around us is much greater than anything else.

  11. I have spent most of my life hating the world and its people, or thinking that I hated them, and in the past few years I have started wondering about a possibility that maybe I actually love people very much, that there is a deep knowing of who we truly are that I adore and treasure beyond anything.
