We are Sons of God First

I wondered about taking God to work with me today. So I went accompanied in my bathroom, showering and cleaning my teeth. As I dressed I noticed I ignored I was a Son of God, but remembered when I sat at my computer. I got into the car: it was one the garage had loaned me as mine was in for a service. I found the controls were unfamiliar – not what I am used to. In the car I forgot I was a Son of God until five minutes into the journey… I changed my movements and my world shifted too. It was easy to come back to the fact I was a Son of God, it took a split second, just like that. Then I realised that I was still a Son of God when I was choosing to forget I was.

How would the world be if I didn’t forget?

“The ancient great teacher Patanjali began his lessons with the fact that each student was the Son of God… The main central thrust was to know that you are a Son of God and then to proceed to deal with the hindrances that make you think you are not.” Serge Benhayon, The Way It Is (p. 182)

Knowing we are all Sons of God, can we be Sons of God in all we are – in all we do, think and say?

Do we start our day, as our eyes open, acclimatising to the wonder that we are Sons of God?

Am I fully claiming it, ignoring it or in absolute denial of it? Sometimes I take a pic-and-mix approach in my options here, yet I have the clear understanding that the fact of our Son-ship remains, regardless of our choices.

We are Sons of God when we love, when we hate, become emotional, and still Sons of God when we throw all our toys out of the pram or fall down and cry. But nothing we do, that is, not one shred of ‘doingness’, can alter the fact we are Sons of God first.

I know that I used to be convinced that I could not possibly be connected to God in any way because I was so super-critical of myself for not being good enough, not being right, and certainly not being worthy. It was only when I came across Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine that I was able to let these judgments of myself go, with healing and support.

There is now an awareness in me that there is no crime we can do by choice or omission, no heinous act, wrongdoing or imperfection that can change the fact we are Sons of God. No matter how much we mess up, we are Sons of God first and last. We cannot eradicate the fact of us being Sons of God; no amount of ‘doing’ or ‘not doing’ something will ever change this.

I am a Son of immutable ageless perpetual Love – God who is.

We all are Sons of God.

We are all made with God in each cell.

God holds the Universe, so how grand and vast are we that we are Sons of God?

Thank God for Serge Benhayon. Without him, my life would not be what it is today. I would be living a life that is the opposite of who I am, as I was before I met him. So God, thank you a million billion trillion times for this extraordinary man who loves all as You do.

  1. Wouldn’t it change the world if we knew ourselves as divine first, and not as anything less? And as Patanjali taught, then remove anything that stands between us living our divinity or not… and oh my, the joy of then reflecting that divinity to others to remind them of who they are.

  2. I really enjoyed reading this and relating to the moments you forgot you were a Son of God, because I can set to express being love and then trip up when I’m faced with something very worldly, like, I don’t know, my work computer not accepting my passwords or something. But what I love is coming back to my divinity and learning what it is to live this in everyday life. When I trip up and forget, I can reflect on what I tripped up on and learn. Though the potential trips are varied I’m not getting so caught by them, which is great.

  3. ‘No matter how much we mess up, we are Sons of God first and last.’ Love this line. Brings such equanimity to the world. So much chaos is around that returning to truth immediately settles the disquiet.

  4. Ariana, I felt like you too until I met Serge Benhayon
    “I know that I used to be convinced that I could not possibly be connected to God in any way because I was so super-critical of myself for not being good enough, not being right, and certainly not being worthy.

    There are no words that I could use to express my appreciation of Serge Benhayon and his family, they have supported me to let go of my self imposed withdrawal from life and live again in the fullness of it instead. It’s an ongoing exploration of myself, but one that I’m so glad I started rather than choosing walking in the shadows.

    1. I know ‘walking in the shadows well’ – more like skulking in the shadows! Thanks to seeing Serge Benhayon and his family over the years, I’ve seen there’s no reason to hide the gloriousness of who we are.

  5. Well, if I ever needed any convincing that me and everyone else on this planet are the sons of God, reading this would do that, no matter how far our minds can stray and try and convince us that we are not, the fact remains we truly are.

    1. And as we are Sons of God, Souls breathed forth by God, and because it’s an immutable fact, then to not be a Soul simply indicates how much we know about not being it!

  6. I loved the simplicity yet powerful blog. If we really sit down and ponder, do we ever wonder how we came to be. We can see how trees and animals come to life but do we ever ponder where it all began. Where and who do we come from? Can scientist really prove this and is it always about proving, could we have a knowing that we are not from here.

    When I was a little girl, there were some nights I couldn’t sleep. I used to look out at the dark skies off the night and saw so many stars and wondered what they were, and how did they sparkle so bright. Could we be the only people / existence in the universe? There must something grander than us at the same time as equal to one another. We must come from somewhere and from some one / thing. Is this the missing connection we so desperately want to reconnect to?

  7. When we don’t claim the fact that we are sons of God, in our pretense of unworthiness, it becomes an alibi for us not accepting the purpose and responsibility of us being in the first place. Claiming that we are sons of God is no self-aggrandisment, it is just a simple fact of who we are, and whatever we do, no matter how hard we may try denying it, it catches up with us, and we will come back to it.

  8. With the presentation of this immutable truth – “No matter how much we mess up, we are Sons of God first and last” any reason to beat yourself up when you do something ‘wrong’ is totally dismantled. Why? Because I know that God never judges me for what I do, and what I say; so why do I? Maybe it’s because it gives me a reason to not accept who I truly am and what I am here in this life to do, but instead live a life of self-centred comfort that keeps me in an evolutionary holding pattern. It’s time to accept that I am a Son of God and I that I have an important purpose in this, and every other life.

  9. I was in joyous appreciation of God’s love when I read the line about no matter what crime etc… we commit, we will always remain a Son of God. How holding of humanity is that. It is always our choice to live as a Son of God (or not) but it never changes the fact that we are one, no matter how far we step away. If/when we choose to return, our Son of God’ness (not even sure if a word?!? 🙂 ) is there for us.

    1. It reminds me of sacredness, the ultimate form of mothering that holds a child in the divinity and beauty they are regardless of the many lives they have lived, or what they have brought into this life that is not truly a part of their essence. It offers a fresh new beginning, a birth or return back to their origins, to the universality and beauty they truly are – and we can hold all adults in the same way.

  10. “Then I realised that I was still a Son of God when I was choosing to forget I was” We come from Love, we are Love, even when we have forgotten we are Love and we are all equal in Love.

  11. To claim that we are a Son of God and to then live this everyday offers a powerful reflection that inspires others to also feel this truth.

  12. ‘God holds the Universe, so how grand and vast are we that we are Sons of God?’ – this is such a fantastic reminder how we play so much less than what we truly are. Accepting that we are such magnificence is one we all have to say yes to.

  13. I remembered reacting when I first heard Serge Benhayon say we are sons of God.
    ‘How can I be a Son of God when I am a woman’ – well I thought I was at that time and far from it.

    Over the years my reactions were only because I had been bought up with so many misconceptions and really confused, I did not know who I was.

    Sexism has been bastardised so it was a no wonder I was reacting and become confused.

    The more the lies are being exposed the more I realise we are equal but we are for sure ‘Sons of God First’ before anything else, we have strayed and become lost to a civilisation that is based on thousands of years of lies – It is that simple.

    1. I would agree Shushila, I am a woman, surely that immediately makes me less! When I consider it further I realise that way of thinking by society and by us/me, is a great way to reduce anything we have to offer and to ensure we don’t consider ourselves an equal part of the whole.

  14. It makes perfect sense when we think of our bodies as part of the universe on a cellular level, which makes sense as we are physically part of the Universe which is clearly divine.

  15. In essence we are indeed the Sons of God and this fact as you have wisely shared remains true and unchanged. And so we have the choice to ignore and resist, diminish living our divinity, or we surrender and allow ourselves to be guided and live the power of our godliness.

  16. Ok…so I think you are saying here that we are Sons of God :-). Cheekiness aside, yes we are indeed Sons of God. Held in the most divine love we have ever known. It is what connects us to the stars, the sun, the moon and the universe – and to each other.

  17. A lovely reminder Ariana thank you. It is such a simple thing to do yet so much in the world and our day tries to pull away away from this knowing. The choice is how much do we choose to delay our inevitable return to living the God that we are. The more we each take steps back to living the love we are the more we also show and remind others they too can do the same as they are the same.

  18. Thank you Ariana — for what you share is beautiful. I have the same experience, without Universal Medicine/Serge Benhayon I would have been very lost in my purpose in life, and now I have gained true strength and found my purpose back again..

    1. Holy moly, what a question! So when we do re-connect and realise what do we do with that deep knowing? Do we honour it and ensure that our movements henceforth are in honour of that knowing or do we go back to distracting and numbing that awareness because it carries too much responsibility?

  19. Remembering that you are a Son of God is step one, but when we actually embody that feeling life totally changes. We then live each moment knowing who we are, not need for remembering.

  20. What is it about God that we fear, could it be we are so far from the truth of who we are that every aspect of life from birth to death has been rearranged or turned upside down as to make what is a natural feeling, that, which we over-ride with our mind so that we are not allowing our feeling to be held as a truth.

  21. This was cool for me to read today ‘The main central thrust was to know that you are a Son of God and then to proceed to deal with the hindrances that make you think you are not.” Serge Benhayon, The Way It Is (p. 182)’

  22. As the Ageless Wisdom is teaching us, if we are son’s of God, which we all are, then we are all actually Gods pretending to be non Gods, for how can a son of God be any less than our father himself? Human life is but a game to avoid our responsibility to the Universe and each other.

    1. I love this Doug, and so love God. Living God each day – how hard can it be if we simply give up trying – I’m going with this today and the relief of not trying is palpable in my body. All the trying never did work.

  23. Our ultimate role model – God. We seem so small and God seems so big, yet we come from God, we were birthed by God, so we are to become like the parent. Like all creatures that means starting small and eventually growing into all we are birthed to become. And when we lose our way we can look towards God to remember who we are, reclaim ourselves as souls and return to being love, stillness, truth, joy and harmony.

  24. A very empowering blog Ariana. To know that however much we (our spirit) rebels against that which is true within our essence, there is absolutely nothing that can diminish this inner light and knowing-ness in any way and yet there is a force that has us believe that we can defend this illusion indefinitely.
    “We are Sons of God when we love, when we hate, become emotional, and still Sons of God when we throw all our toys out of the pram or fall down and cry. But nothing we do, that is, not one shred of ‘doingness’, can alter the fact we are Sons of God first”.

  25. Every particle of our body and being is part of the Universe so we are part of the Divine All and we are here on Earth learning to be all that we are.
