Universal Medicine & the Media: Why the Elephant is more Interesting than the Fly

by Marika Cominos, Wellbeing Business Owner, Melbourne Australia

There’s an old tale I’ve heard and it goes something like this:

‘Once there were four blind travellers who came across this ‘Big Thing’ in the jungle. One bent down, felt around, and said, ‘No sweat! It’s only some tree stumps’. Another felt the middle and said, ’It’s a wall – we can’t get around’. Another felt a swish against his face and said, ‘Hey! It’s a flying insect!’. The fourth reached up, got a fright, and yelled, ‘Run for your life – a snake!’ Continue reading “Universal Medicine & the Media: Why the Elephant is more Interesting than the Fly”

I have Watched and am Now Inspired

by Sandhya Mistry, Brisbane, Australia

Today I was truly inspired by my partner of 26 years.

Over the past few months, I have watched while my partner and others have had to endure constant harassment on blog sites that a few disgruntled people who blame Universal Medicine for the break up of their relationships, have been writing on. They have blatantly told lies, have manipulated information to incite hatred, are constantly barraging them with insulting comments, and are now trying to ruin their professional reputations with completely unfounded allegations.

I have watched while she has been lied to by journalists to firstly obtain an interview, then be interviewed for up to an hour, to then only have one line manipulated to fit their story.

I have watched how the media have tried to threaten her with another false story to ruin her professional standing when she has objected to their behaviour. Continue reading “I have Watched and am Now Inspired”

An Investigator’s Perspective (Part 2): Is Universal Medicine a Cult?

by E.W. Police Officer, Australia

I have been a serving police officer for over 17 years: during this time I have worked within Metropolitan, State and Federal jurisdictions. I have had experience in policing some of the most culturally and socio-economically diverse communities. I have also had considerable experience in criminal investigations (including domestic violence, hate crime, clubs and vice) as well as the usual engagements associated with general duties.

As an experienced investigator, I wish to refer to the widespread press allegations that Universal Medicine constitutes a cult. Continue reading “An Investigator’s Perspective (Part 2): Is Universal Medicine a Cult?”

What the Media have Reported about UniMed Brisbane is not my Experience

by Donna Harris, Brisbane, Australia, PA to General Manager/Office Administrator for QLD, Diploma in Business Administration – Front Line Management, Justice of the Peace (Qualified) 20 years

I am a single mum with a young daughter, and a couple of years ago I was diagnosed with a brain tumour. The Universal Medicine Practitioners at the Brisbane Clinic have been supportive beyond words during this time.

So that I might have the support I required over that time of my treatment and recovery my daughter and I stayed at the Brisbane UniMed Clinic for three months. Not only did I receive the utmost in care, but I was also supported through doctor’s appointments and financially, as I was unable to work. I was given the love and care that was needed and not once during this time was a treatment ever based on whether I could afford it or not. What was even more honourable was that all of this was done without any expectations in return! Continue reading “What the Media have Reported about UniMed Brisbane is not my Experience”

It Defies Common Sense!

by Jeanette Macdonald. RN (palliative care), Esoteric Healing Practitioner (EPA accredited), Tauranga, NZ

On the one hand we have people gathering together in a public place, by choice, to listen to someone (Serge Benhayon) who openly and consistently presents simple loving ways of living and being in the world: by openly, I mean the doors are always open and have always been at any Universal Medicine presentation I have attended.

And on the other hand, David Millikan, who Serge (due to his open door policy and having nothing to hide) had generously agreed to give the time and space to go on stage so that he could ask questions, supposedly prepared for those gathered.  Continue reading “It Defies Common Sense!”

David Millikan: Night of the Inquisition

by Sue Kira, Gold Coast, Australia

On Friday 12th October 2012 I sat down expecting another exceptional night of education from Serge Benhayon at a Universal Medicine presentation at Lennox Head. Prior to his presentation, Serge introduced David Millikan to us as a Uniting Church Minister. At first I was pleased to hear this, as I knew that the Uniting Church had an open mind to different religions, and views on a God who loves us all equally.

Serge told us how he and David had previously spoken for hours, discussing their viewpoints and how the media had been saying we were a ‘cult’. David Millikan had suggested to Serge that his view was that Universal Medicine was not a cult, and he wanted to speak to us briefly at the beginning of the presentation about how we felt. David said he wanted to include Universal Medicine in a chapter in his book. Continue reading “David Millikan: Night of the Inquisition”
