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. Living brotherhood on earth is as important as getting myself a stable job that I can earn a living with and not hold back myself from, it’s the one thing in life that has put everything back into perspective for me.

  2. It is very easy to find oneself feeling frustrated when we consider the current state of affairs that we live in, However, it is not about changing what is out there but looking within and choosing to live who we truly are and meet others in equality from an open heart.

  3. You have described Maree how you have found that your feeling of brotherhood not being possible in this life changed through being met in true equality. This reflection that shows all who come across it that true brotherhood is not only possible but that it is being lived by some already and many more are learning to be in this way.

  4. The most beautiful thing about the teachings of Serge Benhayon who has reignited in so many the Livingness of true Brotherhood is that this future is not a hope but a very real and practical lived potential that is undeniably felt in the examples of the Benhayons and so many in how they are now living.

    1. Yes, so true Joshua, it is not hope, which is to live relying on chance to fulfill the wish, while what Serge Benhayon presents is the lived example of true Brotherhood.

  5. I used to be very puzzled why people didn’t get on with each other, from those in the same family, to different countries in the world. To me we were all the same, just different on the outside; a difference that sadly has been used to abuse others, segregate races and even start wars. But not many around me felt the same as I did. So when I first heard Serge Benhayon share about Brotherhood I was delighted that I finally had a name for what I had always felt. Like you Maree, I have the deepest appreciation for Serge “showing me the essence of Brotherhood that I knew to be true in my heart.”. That day the world began to make sense.

  6. I remember running around everywhere searching for something I had always felt was missing. I was told it was love and so I went to the love we have accepted as normal in a world, a relationship. Only to find the same feeling there after a while and it was a case of settle for this or ask for me. It wasn’t found either in being in and out of relationships because eventually it was all there for you to see and feel no matter who sat opposite you. Then, like in this article there was this; “Without love for myself, I wasn’t able to truly love another.” While there were thoughts to the contrary, now this makes complete sense. How do you know something or how are you able to see it clearly if it’s not how you live with yourself. Love was forever a version in front of me until I grounded it back in how I am with myself and walked it out from there, this is true love.

  7. Brotherhood is deeply embedded in our being and therefore we all are so desperately searching for it in our families, with our friends and at work. But until we truly understand what brotherhood actually is, that it is a livingness in which we understand that we are all equal Sons of God and have to work together as one to work us out of the abusive world we have created for ourselves, we will continue to add to the abuse in the world.
