We live in a world where friendship comes loaded with conditions. Even a universally accepted quality like loyalty in friendship comes with the expectation of exclusivity, the anticipation that ‘you will do right by me no matter what’, even if it means doing wrong by another. This is not the way of Serge Benhayon, who defies all current perceptions of friendship and instead lives true friendship, a relationship that is always and never not all-encompassing of every person he meets, equally so.
Serge encouraged observation and not following of his living quality and in particular, the integrity of living your quality consistently throughout all areas of your life, being yourself in all relationships. Here was a man, living an ordinary life in an extraordinary way, bringing the same level of loving expression to every relationship he encountered, reserving no less of himself for a tradesperson and coveting no more for close friends. Most inspiringly, Serge presented that this quality he lived from and with, was within each of us equally, not something someone would deliver to us, or something unattainable we must worship in another – he spoke of God within us all.
So I observed and did so for years. What followed were years of observation, observation of the presenter, the man, the husband, the father, the friend. I observed over many years, a man who lived what he spoke, who made no claim to perfection, but instead an absolute dedication to living energetic truth and energetic integrity. And this he lived, not just before his growing audiences, but between presentations, after them and equally at home. I observed this humble and assured man present himself, all of himself wherever and with whomever he spoke - whether before hundreds or before one, whether with someone for the first time or his wife, this man was the same, he expressed the same loving quality, opened up the same way, letting everyone in and loving all equally, holding them in equalness.
Friendship with Serge Benhayon is profoundly loving and most significantly, inspires the understanding that to love one person in true friendship is to hold all people in that equal love.
