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. It is so true Nikki that we can have all the keys in to world, which we do, but we will never discover all that is there to explore unless we are willing to turn the key, open the door and commit to walking through. And instead remain in the shadows of closed doors by settling and indulging in the accomplishment of attaining and owning the keys. Yet these keys are not for us to keep for ourselves as their purpose is reveal the access to a universal truth that serves to emancipate us all.

  2. I like the responsibility you are inviting here Nikki. It is about us, that is presented through Serge Benhayon, to not consume but bring to life. To the best of our possibilities of course but not use his support to feed the issue actually. To get the attention that we still have a problem, instead of bringing what he delivered into action. Opening the door. He is the most patient and loving adviser I’ve ever met, but do I use this or misuse it? And do I really appreciate what is offered because if I do I would work with the keys and not ask for more when everything I have already got is everything.

  3. “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.” If we don’t use the keys we have been given – they will never unlock anything. It is up to us to use what we have been given and so reflect out to the world around us, which sure needs some keys right now.

  4. Thank you Nikki, we seem to delight in having problems that need answers, and for someone else to provide that for us, when we each in fact have everything we already need within us. The keys Serge gives us, incredible gems of wisdom and understanding, are actually a reflection of what we can each access inside ourselves as well.

  5. We may collect many keys of wisdom over our lives and we may not remember to use them all. We may choose to stick with the ones that resonated the most and put them into practise and it is when we practise turning the key and using them everyday, that we discover more keys and unlock more doors that help us learn and grow as we move through life. We all choose different keys to support us at different times in our lives.

  6. This has to be one of my fav blogs because I think we can all relate to seeking answers to questions that we in fact already know the answers to. It is a choice and when we are honest, like you have been here, it gives us the freedom to actually make the choice.

  7. Great to consider if we’re just playing with the keys, toying with them, looking at them, polishing them.. we can have all the knowledge and wisdom in the world, but if we’re not putting it into action, living it in our every day, every movement, without perfection, then that’s quite a monumental waste that others could otherwise be benefitting from.
