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. Serge Benhayon has brought God to life as it were, and reignited that spark that lives within us all so that at the very least we have started to question life and our part in it.

  2. “It feels like I knew it all along – I just needed someone to spell it out for me.” I had a similar experience Regina, in that when I heard Serge Benhayon talking about God it was as if hundreds of pieces of a jigsaw puzzle suddenly fell into place and everything I had previously felt and on some level known, now made sense. And there are many who I have spoken to who also had similar feelings. Sometimes all we need is “someone to spell it out for us.”

  3. “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.

    1. Life without purpose does not make sense, ‘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? ‘

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. “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.

  10. “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.
