I met Serge back in 2002 while on holiday in Byron Bay. I was not in the best place at the time feeling very hurt by life, the Universe and everything, and was looking for some time off to escape and certainly not for inspiration on how to be more.
My wife and I had organised a session with him on Boxing Day, and all I wanted was a nice, comfortable, relaxing massage.
True to expectations the hands on part of the session was awesome, but it was the few minutes of conversation either side that started transforming my life.
In particular I remember a conversation nearly 8 years ago now, when Serge made the simple comment that he would be the best friend I had ever had.
Serge has a commitment to looking deeper, beyond life’s temporal outplay, that has stood out over the years and proven his prophecy to be true… because Serge has encouraged me over the years to look beyond what is simply happening in front of me. He has encouraged me to read why something is happening. To be aware of so much more than just my own small world. To open up to people from behind the hurts and petty jealousies that keep us small, and let people see everything I am feeling. And to connect… not just with other people but with myself.
It’s that connection that hit the jackpot in establishing a divine relationship.
Over the years my friendship with Serge, and consequently the Way of the Livingness, has given me daily access to this divinity that is both all around us, and always inside of us.
To bring it full circle to my original problems back in 2002, I have now found God hanging out at work… and this provides me with inspiration in my job as an Accountant and Businessman. Its been quite the turnaround and I now draw deep inspiration from my work. Quite the counterpoint to my experience in the same job nearly 15 years ago.
Serge has been constant and true throughout all those years. His friendship has never backed away from calling me out when the need arises, from always asking me to be everything I am, and constantly showing me that there is more to this world when you start to understand that energy is everything.
I thank God for having met Serge all those years ago, and that’s particularly easy now because I’ve noticed that He is always walking right beside me!
