The Key to Life – Would you Take it? 

What if you were given the key to life – would you take it? Would you even recognise it for what it was or know what to do with it?

I recently began pondering on this as I found myself composing an email in my head to Serge Benhayon, the founder of Universal Medicine. Over the past few years, I have written Serge a dozen or so emails asking what seemed like huge questions about my life. All of my emails have been responded to lovingly, with a few simple words.

As I thought about the next email I was writing, it occurred to me that perhaps Serge had already answered me. Perhaps what was answered in one of my previous emails was applicable to the current question. Perhaps his one-liners are in fact keys to life.

Each time I have been given such a key, I have accepted it with huge gratitude and placed it in my metaphorical key bowl. It sits there with all the other keys Serge has gifted me over the years.

I also have a collection of keys that I’ve been given at retreats, workshops and presentations… my set of keys is quite impressive!

So I have all these keys, but do I know what to do with them?

What if I took just one of these keys and made use of it – if I put into action any one of the things Serge has presented or shared? What comes up is a feeling of “It won’t work.” But if I am honest, I know the keys will work. In fact, all the keys will do the same thing. They will help me to unlock those parts of me that have played safe, those parts I have kept hidden so that I am not asked to show too much of my true self to the world. These ‘locked doors’ are simply walls I have erected that stand between myself and others in the guise of protection. These walls offer no safety, only imprisonment, as only love and our expression of it can truly protect. This may perhaps explain why there is a huge part of me that does not want to try the keys. Perhaps there is a part of me that needs to have an issue to deal with or to have something to work at. Perhaps I feel safe here in my comfort zone with the doors locked. Perhaps I have become identified with having a certain level of problems because they keep me living in separation to the love that I am and my expression of this love with all others.

So here I am, happy collecting keys, pretending I am working on evolving and asking for more keys each time I reach a blockage in my path. I like building my key collection and knowing that I have them. But again, if I am really honest, they are being used as mere ornaments if I stop short of using them as they are designed to be used and that is to access the universal wisdom that is on offer inside me, inside us all, as Serge so lovingly and tirelessly shares with us.

So now it is time for me to look at my bowl of keys and make a choice as to whether I will use them. For it is only this one simple choice that stands between me and the great treasure I hold, we all hold, deep within.

  1. Reading this was a great reminder that I have no issues because everything has already been given in the endless presentations from Serge Benhayon, Universal Medicine and by life itself. Serge has seen and felt the keys that the universe is providing for us and simply pointing out the fact that we have been given them as well.

  2. Very true Nikki and Serge keeps on giving keys and never does this cease and the keys are available for anyone who chooses to take them.

  3. Serge Benhayon has offered us everything humanity could need to help us come back to who we really are and get out of the mess the world is in.. His absolute love and integrity and consistency is beyond this world and is the greatest inspiration and reflection ever. It is our choice what we choose to do with it and the love we allow ourselves that is forever expanding.

  4. A beautiful expose of the spirit that loves to keep us in complication instead of walking the simplicity that Serge Benhayon offers.

  5. Perhaps we don’t use the keys so lovingly and freely given because we want to stay in control. By opening a door to untold healing and release from our self-imposed prison, we are entering the world of the unknown where control has no place, where we surrender into the arms of the Kingdom of God within.

    1. Wow, what you shared here Lucy feels like another key! Proof that we all have the same access to Truth inside us. I can see how letting go of control and the game of playing small and not standing out is a challenging one, but definitely worth going there as it unlocks our true potential.

  6. Whether we choose to use these amazing keys we are given to open up a new door, or to just add them to an ever growing bunch of keys that remains at the back of a drawer, will determine what our future will be.

  7. Hi Nikki, Thank you for this great reflection of truth and wisdom! The keys – those one liners of wisdom – are they used or simply read and then put in the key box….this is something I will take into my day to ask myself how many keys have I collected and how many have I used…and how many sit rusting from lack of use! Thank you.

  8. Serge Benhayon has presented to myself and thousands of people the truth about the gold that lies within all of us. If we just live true to ourselves, accept and deeply appreciate that we are divine sons of God then we have it all. The more we accept this the more we can get ourselves out of the way and embrace that everyone is just like us and hence no need for any sort of division or separation. Life could be so simple if we let it be.

  9. It is great to have a collection of keys to life which you can treasure and take care for but fact is indeed do we use these keys to evolve us in life? We have in fact all the keys that are needed to reclaim our ancient origin back into our lives and it all comes to using these keys, as they will unlock us from our ill and restrictive way of living and will open doors for living a life like in heaven on earth.

  10. You are quite right – any one key from The Ageless Wisdom unlocks everything one would ever need to know. But the mind likes asking questions, revels in complications and adores issues.

  11. We all have access to many keys of wisdom in our lives and it is from our movements that we can either utilise their truth and bring great change to how we live or leave them hanging on the hook to jingle in the wind. It brings it back to the simplicity of choice and how we choose to use the wisdom on offer or heed its magic for another day.

  12. The keys of the wisdom of life are given to us in so many loving ways by Serge Benhayon who works patiently and relentlessly for us to use them offering us everything . It is simply our choice to get everything else out the way and allow ourselves to be who we innately are and all is waiting for us on our journey home.

  13. We have such a habit of undervaluing the wisdom and profoundness of simplicity, such as is found in the ‘one-liners’ delivered by Serge Benhayon. We tend to receive the sentence, feel the tip of the iceberg of what is really being said and instead of going deeper to feel it, ask for the next tantilising bit of information. What I love about writing an email to Serge in my head, as I have done a few times in the last 15 years, is that I find I already know the answer – and it is always simple. Serge holds everyone as equal and able to access everything he can access, which when connected to creates the space for the understanding to come.

  14. In my experience, all of what Serge Benhayon presents blesses us with an infinite number of practical keys that unlock the mysteries of understanding human life.

  15. Quite often the very act of writing the question shows me that I already have the answer. The act of giving it the space to write it down provides the space for a true enquiry, and at that point I realise that we all have enormous wisdom and access inside each and every one of us.

    1. That’s a very interesting sharing, thank you Simon. Sometimes, when I’m writing an email to Serge to ask about something, I just stop and answer the question myself – we know everything!

  16. Absolutely Nikki, have we taken the keys given to us in our lives to their fullest? Or do we look for more to not feel that we have all those keys already but have not in full taken them with us. A profound sharing that makes us aware of the actual key: we need to use all the keys we got! And not put them in a box to save for later.

  17. “Perhaps his one-liners are in fact keys to life”; perhaps, yes definitely I would say. A beautiful blog Nikki, thank you for sharing your experiences and your wisdom.

  18. Everything we have ever been looking for lies within. We don’t even need to search as it is right here with us and has been all along. We’ve only forgotten this. Thank God for Serge Benhayon who came to remind us who we are and where we are from.

  19. Gift after gift after gift, blessing after blessing after blessing, I am still yet to truly appreciate all that Serge brings for humanity, ceaselessly.

  20. I conçur! Serge Benhayon’s one liners are absolutely keys to life. In fact everything he shares is. I can so relate with what you have shared hear as it is so easy to want the answer or ask for the answer but what do we actually do when we are given it? Are we willing to change our lives and be all that we truly are or do we ‘just’ ask another question completely and conveniently ignoring the answer we have been given to our previous question!

  21. I have re-discovered a few keys lately, hiding in plain sight. They have not been buried like many others have been but right in front of me waiting to be picked up and used once again. The choice to finally acknowledge them and to pick them up has been a long time coming but now that I have the feeling within my body is one of glorious liberation, so the temptation to beat myself up for having taking so long is easily cast aside. That will only delay using these keys to unlock the treasure that waits within, and delay is no longer a choice I choose to make.

  22. I can so relate to this blog. We have the keys to unlock so much misery, pain, complication but instead of using them, we often sit looking at them, picking up one from time to time and then putting them down again. Crazy stuff heh! Thanks for the honest sharing that allows me to be honest as well and inspire me to pick up my keys, to start unlocking the grandness that exists within me (and us all).

  23. I love reading your blog Nikki; it is such a simple gentle reminder that we have access to the keys of life whenever we choose, connect to ourselves and the keys are there.

  24. I have found that with Serge Benhayon thought his livingness and the ageless wisdom that I have been given the key to my life , the beholding so as to access the truth of my origins , therefore the keys to universal life that is there for all that want to live it .

  25. If we only take the time to connect to the quality of movement in our bodies we would realise that in every moment we are presented with the keys to life to expand and be more of who we truly are.

  26. Nikki, I love this article, reading it I can feel how much wisdom and truth Serge Benhayon has shared over the years on courses and workshops and that it is now about living what has been presented. When I have applied something that has been presented it has been life changing, such as being more gentle with myself and being more loving and understanding – these ways of being have made a huge difference to my life and those around me and I can feel how there is so much more that I could apply that has been shared over the years.

  27. Nikki – universal wisdom is universal – and I too find that the support offered from Serge Benhayon can be applied to so many situations. It is so big what he delivers and this I know I have not fully appreciated.

  28. A great sharing Nikki, if we were to use but one of the keys and live it, it would unlock all of the others. In complicating and distracting are we avoiding the love that can be lived so simply? Issues are a way we hold on to an identification.

  29. Only when we start taking the key from the ‘metaphorical key bowl’ and apply them to life for ourselves it opens the door to what is available. Not by owning but by living the ‘keys’ we become who we are.

  30. There is this story of a person seeking for God everywhere but when actually finding the gates to heaven taking to one’s heels. I guess we wanna own the key but not necessarily use it, at least not before we have enough of traveling all the wrong routes for the pleasure of pursuing individuality.

  31. It is funny you mention it, Nicki, because I am a key collector too. I don’t think I have quite as many as you, as I can feel a bit funny about asking for more. The majority of the time though, I forget that I have the keys in the bowls and I am convinced that when I am asking for another key, that it’s new and different to what I asked for last time; it’s how I justify asking again I guess. Strangely enough, I am afraid to use them too. I’m scared that one key will open all the doors and I will be exposed and vulnerable. I am afraid that I won’t know who I am without the need for keys and doors if this does happen. Thank you for your fun and insightful take on what we seem to get up to. I know it’s helped me to see how stubborn I have been but in a way that is very light.

  32. I just love your blog Nikki. We have indeed a treasure of bowl with keys. We just need to take one out and it already brings evolution. So what happens if we take them all out? Are we ready?

  33. I love what you have so powerfully shared Nikki, it is so true we have been given the keys to heaven so to speak, the heaven that lives in our hearts and the responsibility is for us to use them to unlock the treasures that we each one holds deep within our hearts.

  34. The thing is , we know that given the opportunity, so many people would not take up the offer of reconnecting to their true selves, the fear is so deep and embedded, until, the big shake up comes… and then its sink or swim.

  35. We really do hold the keys to our own evolution and saviour, if wanting to put it in those terms. So much or organised religion states that we have to wait for someone, someone is going to save us, but that is not true, we can only save ourselves.

  36. The greatest gift Serge Benhayon has given me is to allow myself to make my own choices, to learn from the consequences, I was able to go forward to spread my wings because I know his support is always there when I need it but without first going for it in trust of myself, I am still holding back myself.

  37. We are imprisoned in ad-hoc created jails. The image of the physical jail, however, does not do it for us since there is not just one key and just one door. We are locked in inside other lock ins. To unlock ourselves we need to acknowledge first that we are jailed and second, to be able to see what is locking ourselves up and keeping us in there.

  38. I really appreciate what you are sharing here as there is such a propensity to look outside of ourselves when so many of the keys we are looking for are within. Serge Benhayon and the courses, recordings and books all offer support on how to access that wisdom but essentially it is for us to trust that we have all we need inside us. We are love, it is where we are from, what we are made of and in truth, it should be our only source of fuel in life.

  39. The issues in my life are becoming less or really speaking it is not that the issues are becoming less but about my relationship with them. There are always going to be issues or hurts to deal with but it is how I am and what I do with them. They are in truth not who I am but something created so essentially do not belong. Am I willing to go deeper and let go of those same, repeating issues/dramas I create in my life? As I pause to reflect no matter how big I may think they are at the time they are nothing but distractions from living in my essence and the more I nominate and claim this truth the less they become a part of life.

  40. Yeah, we love to collect keys and kind of pretend to use them. For me, I’ve noticed that sometimes, when I get the key, I put it in the lock, turn it half way, and then decide it doesn’t unlock the door. Not committing to the complete turning of the lock is the avoidance of commitment to myself and life. Wanting other people’s keys to unlock the doors doesn’t work.

  41. Taking the key is taking the responsibility – no wonder that we may hesitate as it opens the door to the Space where Self cannot step into but needs to be left behind.

  42. Collecting keys can be a trick in itself if we don’t take the next step forward that is needed. The question is: Do we really want the freedom that comes with it?

  43. Back in the day you used to get a big key on your 21st as a way of saying unlocking your adulthood. I never got one of those but when I walked in and sat down for my firs time with Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon I just instantly knew that the key that I was given was a door that I had opened and walked through before a long time ago and I was being reminded that it was simply unlocking it and stepping through again. This door remains unlocked and I can leave myself if I choose but I am committed to and appreciate what it is that I am offered when I am in connection with my Soul and I will never ever walk away from it again.

  44. The Ageless Wisdom offers us the key to living a life filled with enormous love, truth, harmony, brotherhood… and then some. The greatest gift offered to me has been the Ageless Wisdom, and then to apply this to my life and to feel how truly supported and loved we are, is absolutely priceless.

  45. The key to evolution is when we understand that the more aware we become – the more responsibility there is to utilize those keys we have been given access to for the good of humanity in whatever way, shape or form it might be needed.

  46. I love this blog and the appreciation for the seemingly simple one liners that Serge delivers. We read ‘Be Love’ but we want wiggle room to not be love so we dismiss this as not being enough or dramatic enough. IN short it doesn’t identify the hungry spirit who loves its own issues. Be love is generic and reminds us we are not individuals but one soul, one love. This is the key that we resist.
