Is God Real?

All through my teenage and adult life I had two burning questions: who or what is God, and what is the purpose of our existence?

Yes, I also looked for love, comfort, fulfilment and any kind of satisfaction in my worldly life, with lots of distractions and often self-destructive activities and behaviours, but I always came back to those two most important questions of God and purpose.

I felt that everything that ever happened to me, or anybody, must have some plan, logic or purpose to it, otherwise what is the point of living at all? I always knew that there must be a God/intelligence/some power that lets everything exist, but what is it, and why do we exist?

The Christian religion that I grew up with didn’t make much sense to me, so I looked at other religions, read books, listened to gurus and spiritual teachers and dipped into all sorts of alternative practices like Indian and Chinese Buddhism, new-age meditations and Reiki.

Sometimes I thought, “Ooh, I’m getting somewhere, this makes sense.” Particularly, the concept of reincarnation seemed to be an obvious part of the puzzle. I also learned a great deal about the human condition and how we function emotionally.

But no book, guru or teacher could explain to me why we are here, how it all started and what we are to do to really find God.

It had been a long journey, full of difficulties, and I was physically quite ill and weak from a life lived in dissatisfaction, often with depression, anger, frustration and the feeling that I was a victim of life happening to me. I was so angry with God for letting me suffer so much.

In spite of my outward rejection of institutionalised religion, I still had the usual Christian image of God – an all-powerful being with super-human qualities that has made us and the universe; a power that existed somewhere outside of me, separate from me.

I hoped and longed for that God to love me and help me, like an ideal father that I imagined. And like so many others, I couldn’t understand why He would allow the suffering of innocent people.

I was desperately looking for help, being physically and emotionally at the end of my tether. That’s when I met Serge Benhayon and my life changed on all levels.                    

From the presentations and books by Serge Benhayon, I started to understand the energetic truth of God, life, us, the world and the universe we live in. I am learning the living science of the Ageless Wisdom, as presented by Serge Benhayon, in my everyday life and this is an ongoing unfoldment that I enjoy tremendously.

I now know where we come from, how it all started and that I am responsible for my life and everything that happens to me. I know that God is not responsible for our suffering – it is we who just have to allow ourselves to be aware of how we and the world around us work energetically; then we have a choice which energies we let in or align to.

We can choose love, our natural, divine energy, or we can choose to align to the energy of the mind, with all the ideas and beliefs that we have picked up from the world around us.

At first, the idea that I’m responsible for everything that happens to me and all my own suffering, especially as a child, was difficult to understand and accept. But reincarnation makes total sense to me and, by accepting it as a real possibility, I opened up to feeling deeper into my responsibility (and my innermost essence), and I kept realising the truth of how it all fits together.

It feels like I knew it all along – I just needed someone to spell it out for me. To really know the truth of something requires me to feel the energy of it.

With the Esoteric Healing Modalities from Universal Medicine, I was able to not only heal and strengthen my body, but also to clear a lot of the emotional and mental structures in me. This opened my body and my mind to deeper levels of sensitivity and perception, feeling and recognising with clarity the stillness and true essence of me.

In time I could feel deeply the true love that I am inside, and in one glorious Esoteric Chakra Puncture session I felt the presence of an energy that is nothing but pure harmony, eternally holding and surrounding everything. It felt just so ‘right’ and absolute that nothing more was ever needed.

I felt this presence in every space of my body, and outside of me as far as my awareness could go, and I have no doubt that this is the presence of God.

I also felt that all I need to do is to be in alignment with that energy, that quality, and this alignment will guide me to live, be and act in harmony with everything.

I no longer feel separated from God; neither do I fear death like I used to. And although there are still emotional and mental structures in me that restrict me and need clearing, I now live with so much joy. I know that God is real – I feel it.

For me it is clear now that the purpose of life is for all of us to find our way back to God and re-unite with our Soul, our essence, because with our God-given free will we have made our existence here to be so very far removed from God that we have forgotten this true essence, our Soul – as our history, as far back as we know, demonstrates so clearly.

We can all find our way back to God by reconnecting with our inner-most heart, the deepest, most intimate place in us, where we will find our true essence, our love and our truth.

Then we can live and express from that connection and, with that, we inspire and help each other until we are all unified again, for in our inner-most heart we are all equal and divine and we all come from the same source – from God.

  1. “it is clear now that the purpose of life is for all of us to find our way back to God and re-unite with our Soul, our essence,” When we reclaim our purpose we know where we are returning to.

  2. It’s interesting how we have been going along with the incompleteness and incongruency that is so obvious in many so- called religions and how the word “God” seems to be uttered to patch up all the gaps and shove it down our throat. Knowing God and all of us in Our truth is only just the beginning.

  3. Is God real? My experience of that question is very much dependent on how much of life I am willing to feel. When I allow my natural sensitivity, then a world of feeling is right there and God is interwoven into all of it. Or I can treat myself mean, shut down from the world, and life quickly becomes quite 2 dimensional and that knowing of God recedes. So much of our experience of life comes from the way we treat ourselves and how open we are willing to be.

  4. Beautifully written, and so clear. God is an energy that is in us, around us, all the time. An energy of pure Love. It so very much makes sense, and even more when you feel it, feel Him. Then you have arrived.

  5. The depth of clarity and understanding that Serge Benhayon offers on life and energy and how to live in true harmony and purpose is unsurpassed in my experience and completely invaluable.

  6. Beginning to understand how to re-connect to God, not so much a doing, but an allowing and surrendering to the immense glory that already resides within. A gentle unfolding and connection to my true essence.

  7. “For me it is clear now that the purpose of life is for all of us to find our way back to God and re-unite with our Soul, our essence” To have this awareness gives meaning back to life: there is no self doubt when we walk as the divine beings we innately are.

  8. “I felt that everything that ever happened to me, or anybody, must have some plan, logic or purpose to it, otherwise what is the point of living at all?” It occurs to me how many people, particularly the young are committing suicide. Without a deep inner connection to God, life can seem rudderless and meaningless. We can support our young people from childhood to stay connected to their true essence and the heaven we all are part of so they always know who they are.

  9. Freedom to choose offers the greatest form of Love because it is unimposing to the point that we even have the choice to live not knowing the Love we come from. There are even those who feed that love of choice and see it as a right we must defend and champion to take us on a merry jaunt to the point we forget we come from Love and that this is what connects us all, not separates or controls us. I feel there is something quite evil in those who purposefully feed that distraction but I also see it is us who have to be willing to not see through the manipulation.

    1. Yes I would love for there to be less of the evil too, but the only way to do that is to build the Love that we have to offer, and fill the corners of the world with that, inspiring others along the way.

  10. The greatest distraction from our connection to God is to purposefully forget to tell us we are energy first and foremost and therefore our connection to the All we are from is felt not seen. If we rely on our sight we can be in the denial of it looking like a picture we have been fed and then we need someone to follow to tell us what we are supposed to be looking for… what a clever way to delay our return to the Love we are all from and divinely made from.

  11. I too looked and looked in my teenage years – a natural search to make sense of something I could feel but did not feel was alive in the religion I was brought up with. Buddhism and Hinduism seemed more relevant and more alive, but equally they did not deliver. Its only when I have come across the Way of the Livingness that I have found something that is both alive, and relevant…. and the beauty is that the search is over as God lives in me.

    1. “and the beauty is that the search is over as God lives in me.” To arrive at this realisation is a blessing, Whereas the external search wears and tears the body, connection to our own inner divinity is a still steady homecoming.

  12. It is a huge step if we start feeling that God is there in us and around us, instead of believing in God. It takes away all the ill beliefs we all have placed on God during this life. And Esoteric Chakra Puncture or Connective Tissue Therapy does help to get a feeling of what God is like, if we just allow it.

  13. When the Ageless Wisdom as presented this time around by Universal Medicine enters your life, it is like the big picture is presented to you of who you are and what you are here for and if you have been seeking that for many years (possibly lifetimes) it is like you can finally settle and then slowly unravel the details of how to live who you are, let go of what you are not, and understand how to live with purpose.

  14. Reincarnation as presented by the Ageless Wisdom is a fundamental key to understanding the purpose of human life.

  15. Most would not understand some of the statements written – ‘that I am responsible for my life and everything that happens to me’ and ’it is clear now that the purpose of life is for all of us to find our way back to God and re-unite with our Soul, our essence’.
    But even before I came across Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon, I knew everything I was doing or searching for in another was not it or never enough for that emptiness within me. I know I would have reacted to the fact that I am responsible for my own life as I would have put everything down to ‘this is life’.

    However the more I read this blog the more I understand my part in everything without perfection, it refines everyday in every moment. And God is always present in everything and every moment for everyone whether we perceive it as “good, bad or ugly”.

  16. “We can all find our way back to God by reconnecting with our inner-most heart, the deepest, most intimate place in us, where we all find our true essence, our love and our truth” – this statement is so simple and yet we complicate it. God is within us all otherwise where and who bought us here?

  17. This is a gorgeous read, it bought back memories of when I was a child and some nights I’d stare at the starry night and wonder who else lived out there. I remembered the religion I grew up around just didn’t make sense to me, everything revolved around ‘good’ versus ‘evil’ and good was preferred and accepted within the community and to add to the acceptance and approval, the more you visited the temple, the more popular you were and accepted.

    Since meeting Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon, it has confirmed the many things I used to feel about life or knowings were of truth and not make believes.

    When I now look at God, there is a continuous connection, there is no distinction with colour or religion, we are just from the one source – God and I do not need to go to any types of building to prove this either.

  18. Our purpose as a path of return to connection with and expression of the divinity we all are in essence; an evolution not into something special that we aren’t already, but instead a return to expressing from our innermost and original spark, already complete and whole within us.

  19. Through reconnecting to our essence we get to feel God’s love flow through our body, and through that connection there is a deep wisdom to be found.

  20. Deep down I never doubted the existence of God but what I was taught growing up both in my home and at school did not feel true to me and I ended up feeling very confused about who God is. In adulthood I searched for him in a number of areas such as visiting so called sacred sites in various parts of the world, in nature and also in new age books and modalities, but nothing rang true until I heard Serge Benhayon share that God is pure love and that we all come from love. When I heard this my whole body resonated and I knew there and then that I had come home to the truth about God. Since then I have been deepening my connection and rekindling my love for him and as a result a whole new joyful world’s opened up for me to explore.

  21. “From the presentations and books by Serge Benhayon, I started to understand the energetic truth of God, life, us, the world and the universe we live in.” It is such an ‘Ah ha’ moment deep inside when we feel the truth of God and our Divine essence.

  22. There was a time once when someone said to me that to believe that life happened randomly without a plan or purpose was to live Godlessly. And I was young and did not understand this, in fact I felt imposed upon and cross. But I can see the wisdom in his words now, I can see how he was in fact being responsive and humble to a greater intelligence that knows what we do not and so has the authority to dictate and to direct. The key though is to know which intelligence you are aligning to.

  23. I can relate to the story you share so beautifully Regina. Universal Meditation presentations by Serge Benhayon have inspired me to once again re-connect to that which is known and true.
    “We can all find our way back to God by reconnecting with our inner-most heart, the deepest, most intimate place in us, where we will find our true essence, our love and our truth”.

  24. How amazing it is to feel the truth of God living within everything and everyone and how our choices and movements made, align us to an energetic quality that reflects the level of responsibility we are willing to go to within our lives. Hence when we look outside of ourselves and or blame others for our life, we negate our responsibility to see the honesty and truth that is revealed from our very own bodies in every moment. God is real because we ourselves have the divine particles interconnected within us all and once we feel this truth within, we have all the answers we will ever need.

  25. ” We can all find our way back to God by reconnecting with our inner-most heart, the deepest, most intimate place in us, where we will find our true essence, our love and our truth. ”
    This reminds me of reading what Jesus said ” The kingdom of God is inside us “

  26. Thank you Regina, it’s quite a common thing for people to question “How can God allow this?”, and “Why is there so much suffering?”, etc. I feel we ask these questions as they come from the beliefs about God that have polluted our consciousness, that God is in charge of everything, and ‘out there’ in separation to us. It makes so much sense when we can understand that it’s human beings that separate from God and that the way back to reconnecting to God is there equally in everyone’s inner heart. God is not in a book of words but a connection we choose to come back to and then live from. The responsibility is up to us. Serge Benhayon’s work has definitely provided a clarity of the truth of how to reconnect to ourselves and God and how we ended up here.

  27. This is Great Regina, as most of us before Universal Medicine were owned and would describe our emotions and mental structures as Us. Re-connecting is a concept that is not difficult to obtain. When using Esoteric Healing we can re-connect to our Inner-Heart so then allowing us to clear “emotional and mental structures.”

  28. I always felt a connection of God but also felt confused as I was told God was an otherworldly being that you went to church to pray too. God for me always felt like it was a connection to everything: the stars, nature other people and myself which I now see is that the truth of God lives within us all and it is this equality that we feel, that then brings God to life as it is a way in which we connect, live and be from our souls that truly brings religion alive.

  29. It is extraordinary what we have done with ‘God’. Our very Father in Heaven has been questioned, denied, misrepresented, ignored. You name it we have done it. Time to clear the windows of our hearts, minds and eyes so that we may come home to His arms.
