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.

    1. I agree Nico, brotherhood becomes a natural way to be when we reconnect to the essence of our true being, as brotherhood is a natural expression of our soul.

      1. Yes Melinda, and it actually hurts that we as a collective are not living it and we all feel this but the reality I see is that a majority of the people I see in society are only trying to avoid this re-connection with our soul and instead are going into stronger abusive behaviour then ever before.

  8. Today reading your blog Maree I too got tears in my eyes. I have to acknowledge that I miss brotherhood to the bones as I know it so well and therefore feel the devastation in me of it not being lived on earth in this moment of time.

  9. When we acknowledge that our giving up on people has come from giving up on ourselves first we are open to healing. Otherwise life becomes about blaming others and/or circumstances, all to avoid taking responsibility for our part in the lack of brotherhood we see in the world…for how many of us can truly say our every living movement is towards brotherhood for all?

  10. I always felt that there was something missing from the way we lived in this world. I struggled to understand why people had to fight and often kill each other but it took me until a few years ago, when I became a student of Universal Medicine, that I came to understand that the disharmony I saw and felt in the world was also within me. I realised that what I was missing was Brotherhood and that it began with me, with each and every one of us.

    1. Ingrid I could never understand why there was violence, fighting, wars, arguments or disharmony. Now through the work of Serge Benhayon I can feel why I have felt it’s our natural way to be in brotherhood and harmony because this is when we are living connected to our soul. Likewise when we disconnect to the soul, disharmony in its many abusive faces happens as we connect to the spirit and the loveless plane of energy it draws its existence and expression from, which is in separation from the soul and God. It explains so much to me why this direct contrast exists between harmony and disharmony, and why some are so loving and others so warlike. Even more startling are the simple tools like the Gentle Breath Meditation and the Universal Medicine Therapies that support our re-connection back to soul. This means we have so much support now to live brotherhood on earth.

  11. Having spent a long time of my life seeking brotherhood, I now know that it is only when one places reconnection to oneself, which naturally brings oneself to service, that through brotherhood is there.

  12. Equalness is like a key that aligns us to the breadth and depths of love within all of us. Just as the barrels of a lock come into alignment when the right key is turned, so do we align with love when equalness is lived.

    1. And as when we align in love and live in equalness we do recognise we are all one and actually cannot live without one another what we think is possible when living from our reasoning mind.

    2. Richard you are like the Universal Locksmith – amazing and very beautiful comment!

      It’s such an illusion isn’t it Nico that we are separate from each other and therefore don’t effect one another. The truth is every movement and choice, even every breath determines the quality of energy we emanate and this perpetually has an effect on the all we live in together, not just planet earth but the entire universe. Returning to Oneness reveals this truth and opens us to the beauty of true responsibility – the love we can live and offer to the all by our own will.

  13. Brotherhood is a quality of life we all know because we have lived this before. That’s why we mis it so much in our nowadays’s societies that tend to become more and more individual because from the arrogant thinking mind we think that this is the solution to our wounds while we all actually know better.

    1. So true Nico, we all do know what it feels like to live in brotherhood. Like you said, we’ve lived this before, and we are certainly missing it and are affected by not living in brotherhood more than we realise.

      1. Yes Chanly88, we all have a remembering of brotherhood but we have forgotten its science and instead try to create our version that at the end always will fail us. Only when we truly understand and can reconnect to its science, brotherhood will return as a quality of living that will restore a way of life that is in respect and obedience of the grander picture we all are part of and belong to.

  14. It’s a great topic Maree, and it’s given me a pause to appreciate the amazing quality and experience of brotherhood as lived by Serge and his family, and now also by many students of Universal Medicine. The beautiful thing that Serge also reflects is it takes one to truly live and reflect brotherhood to ignite many others to return to this true way of being together. And, for the many that did know we could all be living more, to not give up on that but live in full what we know to be true as it only takes one to inspire.

  15. We are all striving to live in brotherhood once again but at this moment of time we are still divided by how we look, our skin colour, race or our level of anticipated ‘intelligence’, our education, by our culture, the country we live in or the many languages we speak. So there are some barriers to overcome and borders to take down before brotherhood for all of us will be restored on this planet earth. But let us not get overwhelmed by the massiveness of our ways of separation but slowly start to build that love we all hold and are from which will eventually build the brotherhood from the inside out.

  16. I can relate to that sense of giving up Maree, and it wasn’t a pleasant place to be but I didn’t know how to get myself out of it until I met Serge Benhayon. He inspired me and thousands and thousands of people to live in brotherhood and he has shown me how this is possible.

  17. We are so much more connected and interrelated to one another then we, from our individual minds, want to believe.

  18. I love your examples of brotherhood and how that is how we could be with all people we are with. I often look for this as well in life because I love to consider everyone when I am doing things and it is for me the only natural way to live.

  19. It shows that our feeling of separation is such when we all keep our hearts closed. All we bave to do is let people into our heart again to undeniably feel the connection between what is already there.

  20. “I felt something I had been searching for my whole life – true Brotherhood.” And when we feel true Brotherhood we know it is something we always knew but had forgotten.
