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. I too have been offered many valuable keys by Serge Benhayon and I have grabbed them with both hands, appreciating what I have been offered at the time. But, in spite of this appreciation, some of those keys were put aside, to be used ‘later’. Recently I have been reminded of how life-changing these keys actually are, and leaving them sitting in the ‘key bowl’ my life is definitely not going to change, whereas picking them up, one at a time and using them, I know that I am opening the door to very wonderful way of living; so note to self – ‘why leave them, gathering dust?’

  2. I loved reading this. We are often given gems, keys or whatever you want to call it and it is only when we embody it, does it feel right to share it with others, otherwise it is regurgitating knowledge, which we are very good at or society expect us to do so.

    The ‘key to life’ is within us all and would I take it? – absolutely.

  3. The fact that when we read any of Serge Benhayon’s books we always find something that feels relevant to us at that very moment is bit of a giveaway – it makes me wonder if we are playing the same game over, and over, and over, but appealing that there’s something new/different that needs to be changed/improved/fixed/let go etc., but really, we are just fighting ourselves in any way we can think of, refusing to use the key while holding it in our own hand.

    1. Fumiyo what you have said resonates with me that we fight ourselves or that there is a part of us that fights the fact that we are all on our journey back to God, We can play as many games as we like but the fact is we are here on this plane of life to evolve and the keys we are given support us to return.

  4. This is so true. We have been given so much already, and we have a huge collection of keys. Each time we get given a new key, we get very excited. But the thing is there’s only one door.

    1. Indeed it does Esther, but I have to ask to what depth are we actually aware of and live this wisdom that is held equally within us all in our everyday lives?

  5. Whether we have met Serge or know of him or not does not change the fact that we all have the same access to the key that will unlock the expression of who we truly are. Whether we have it given to us more clearly by Serge or not does not change the fact that we are the ones that must activate it.

    1. Beautifully said Joshua. We were all born with those keys, and even though life as we know it doesn’t, in most cases, support us to use them, they never leave us, always waiting to be picked when we are ready. Yes, we are the only ones who can use them, as we are the only ones who can make the choice to change our lives.

  6. Just love this Nikki as it highlight how we all in fact have access to living to power of who we are and are here to live, it is that we only choose to deny and resist it in order to avoid the responsibility of living truth and what this means in terms of letting go of our addiction to creation.

  7. ‘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.’ This was more or less the topic of a conversation I had with my partner the other night at the dinner table, and although it was not that much about having problems but still relevant. It came down to where is the key to the joy, do we allow the magic and joy into our lives or are we identified with the smallness of human existence and adding to the seperation of the love we all are.

  8. This shows Serge’s unwavering love and commitment to us all. He is prepared to keep offering keys of wisdom regardless of how irresponsible we choose to use them. There is not an ounce of judgement from this man only love, understanding and a commitment to not hold back the absolute truth.

  9. We can receive much support and many keys, but at the end of the day its up to us to pick up a key, put it into the lock and open the door. No-one can do this for us, no matter how hard we may try.

  11. I love the honesty in this blog Nikki about how we prefer to continue to erroneously ‘protect’ ourselves, rather than use the keys of love that have been presented from the love of humanity that Serge Benhayon holds, to unlock the hurts that have been hidden away deep inside over aeons of time.
    “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”.

  12. Loved reading this account of all the keys we now have that Serge Benhayon has delivered to humanity, and I could not help but feel that we can almost have an addiction to learning and acquiring more keys, as if there is going to be one delivered that is the ‘silver bullet’ to all our issues in a way that does the work of healing for us. But in the end, as Nikki has shared, we really just need to start with one key and really live it on a daily basis, and take responsibility for how we have held back the love that is the key to everything.

  13. It really is up to us to use the keys we have been given. “You can lead a horse to water, but can’t make it drink”.

  14. Nikki, it is so true what you have written I feel the entire world has been given thousands of keys. Serge Benhayon presents the same message in so many different ways and the information has a slightly different angle and one of those thousands of angles or keys will eventually unlock the prisoner from their individual cell. It could be one word that you may have heard repeated a million times, then something magical happens and you are ready to hear that word and that one word enters your body and springs the lock and everything unravels and you come home to your inner heart and God. This is the alchemy of the divine.

  15. I agree that Serge Benhayon presents these ‘one-liners’ and ‘are in fact keys to life’. I have written long emails and the responses have been very simple one-liners and even when I go over these emails, my past issues become irrelevant and sometimes I even think to myself, did I really write about that. But when I read the quality and integrity in his responses, they are still valid and hold the key to a current issue and life itself – what an offering.

  16. The key to life is love and with a combination lock when we align the preset numbers there is nothing to stand in our way.

  17. I love your honesty Nikki. It is crazy that we keep collecting keys rather than using just one to open the Kingdom of Heaven.

  18. I love this blog Nikki, we have access to so many keys, we fight the simplicity and complicate life at times when all the while there is a different way and answer to everything we ever need to know.

  19. When we are standing in the dark, it could be difficult to see the key we hold in our hand, we may feel its weight, size, and shape but we cannot see clearly where to insert the key to unlock the wisdom. And, when we step into the light, we can see clearly the steps to unlock the door to wisdom. So, do we choose to stand in the dark with the key in our hand or step into the light and take the steps forward to access to the universe?

  20. Exposing the illusion of comfort and protection that only imprisons us to living lesser than what we know ourselves to be within our essence. It is a commitment to choosing love and truth and expressing it that is key to living our true selves.

  21. I took your blog, what you are so honestly sharing here and I do recognise, into my day today and it activated me to just be and present what was asked for and to be honest when a certain comfort kicked in in the afternoon to come back to, continuing to live from the connection with my inner heart. The key is to be me!

  22. In the last few weeks I have been listening to several recordings of Serge Benhayon sharing the Ageless Wisdom and the first thing I noticed is the numerous ‘keys to life’ that he has been offering us for nearly 20 years. And he doesn’t just present them once but repeats many times just in case we didn’t feel to take a particular key in the first instance. But of course, we can take up as many as we like but then living what they are offering us is the next crucial step, and that is always our choice.

  23. What if it’s as simple as taking one part of our life and instead of sitting on it – using on of our many collected keys and actually exploring and initiating it in our life? What then could be possible?

  24. I find that when I connect with someone like Serge Benhayon, I get the answer that I would have asked about or at least settle into my body and the knowing that the answer will come. It’s not that I get the answer from them, I can feel that I open up to the knowing that I am equally connected to and able to access the wisdom of my soul. It’s never a giving of power away, as has been my tendency but a restoring of the fullness of me.

  25. The greatest key — our connection to our inner-heart, wisdom, purpose, love and truth. In multiple ways this is shown by all of the teachings by Universal Medicine. And we are so blessed that being so..

  26. Keys are always to open doors that stand in our way. But for this to happen we have to have a feeling of our way in our own body. Otherwise, the keys remain unused. That is why Serge Benhayon can only teach us what we are ready for.

  27. So the real question is not if we will take the keys to life, but if we will use them? And we just love the comfort of having problems and find it very difficult to actually live a simple loving and joyful life. For the problems keep us individual and give us attention, otherwise we just get on with the next thing that is needed.

  28. There is something deeply profound about being offered literally hundreds of keys, or tools, with which to unlock the profound relationship with our souls that is nascent in every one of us… waiting for a time when we choose to connect. The keys may look different, and yet they ALL open the same lock, and so in a way we just need to live one of those keys in full.

  29. Reading your blog Nikki I just want to share one of my keys and personal custom-made gems of wisdom that have been shared with me from Serge Benhayon. They are so deep, past all the layers and are deeply confirming. They can stand alone to a degree to be a forever more mantra for the rest of my life. It is personal but I cannot help share with you how deep and profound the love is from Serge — “just be you — you are lovely the way you are and that is all that matters” and in truth this love for all is what this man lives in every moment — pure sacredness. Thank you my dear man Serge Benhayon and all that you represent.

  30. I totally relate to this, every time I leave a workshop or have a conversation with Serge Benhayon I feel like I’ve been given a key to unlock something in my life, but when it comes to the actual practical application of using the key and applying that potential change to everyday life, my attempt is often half-hearted – I wonder what life would look like if we actually gave it one billon percent.

    1. You are super honest Meg and I love what you’ve shared. We have been given many keys but it is ultimately our choice to unlock the door to multidimensionality or, do we leave that door closed and continue to hold the key in our hand and delay?

  31. Such a key reminder for us all – what if we just took 1 – just 1 of the keys Serge Benhayon has delivered and lived it in full. What a life changer it is when we half use it – imagine in its full capacity. This brings me back to the responsibility I feels on actually committing and reflecting in full the wisdom I know.

  32. Nikki, you point out the absolute truth of what we know inside out, yet we got all these keys (in our awareness or little further away). But the question indeed is, what do we do with it? Do we actually use what we got inside? If not, why not? Curious we might ask ourselves this.

  33. Serge Benhayon delivers the key that unlocks everything – it just has to be presented over and over in different ways until we finally feel the resonance of the truth in his words that begin to open the locked door of the evil consciousness of illusion and inspire and support us to take steps to commence our way home.

  34. We only need one key to open a door. The constant seeking for another keys is simply continuing to walk around a room looking for a key, when in fact the key is in our hand.

    1. The ultimate delaying tactic is to play the ignorance card and we often ask for another key before we try the first one.

  35. Universal Medicine has given me all the keys to life I could ever need. They are always simple and practical, I just need to apply them. This is where we fall short individually and as one humanity. The keys have always been there, there have always been teachers who come life after life to remind us to look inside our inner heart, as the keys are forever there.

  36. I love how Serge Benhayon expresses so much in only a few words, and when we live those words we open up many doors, the problem is are we willing to open the door or continue to hide our light.

    1. The key is in our hand and it is our responsibility to unlock the door and once one door is unlocked we can see there are many more doors to access and walk through.

  37. A great sharing Nikki, we can receive so many pearls of wisdom but what do we do with them, do we live them in any way or merely collect them, and if so why? The question then becomes do we value what we’ve received and if so why would we not use it, until one day we see the old ways are not it and we use it, so really it’s a delay, and are we wiling to delay? For we are delaying us being all we are.

  38. There is a big difference between receiving a key of wisdom and understanding it, and actually living that wisdom.

  39. We have the master key that unlocks all the others door to living life from our divinity, What Serge has given to us are the keys to life that we already have and know within.

  40. One of the keys I’ve not used but know will open up all that is there waiting to unfold, is giving myself permission to feel everything, which means everything!

  41. One of my all time favourite keys is the wisdom shared from my body and when I connect to my body it’s amazing how many more keys and jewels of inspiration pop up just when I need them, simply by using the master key (i.e my body) it then opens up so many more opportunities to discover so much more.

  42. 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.

    1. Yeh super well said Bryony, it is truly a waste if we have a massive pocket of keys that we are not using. After all, what if a key is not for us?

  43. 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.

  44. 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.
