I have known Serge Benhayon and his family for ten years now (since 2007) and that is a fair amount of time to make an assessment of the man, his character and his family. I know all four of his now adult children well and can categorically state they are all remarkable human beings, with a huge capacity to love, connect with people, work hard, and give back to society. They alone are a great testimony to their parents, regarding the quality of their upbringing, the values instilled and the depth of love and care provided.
I don’t know many or in fact any other family who has brought up four children who have never taken alcohol, smoked, taken drugs or indulged in the usual teenage ‘not-so-healthy’ pursuits, who all excel in their own fields, with a level of throughput of work and projects way beyond the norm, who are not lost and checked out on social media or other forms of entertainment, and who have a level of wisdom well beyond their biological age and live lives of deep integrity, responsibility and purpose. If we could replicate the recipe that resulted in children becoming adults of this quality, the world would be a very different place indeed.
How do you not underplay the man, his wisdom, and how do you represent fully such love for people, such an understanding of life that he has? How to marvel at such a powerful ability to expose corruption and rot, seeding forth a way humanity can live, that will eradicate the suffering, illness, disease and our violent abusive ways that we accept as normal.
A grand vision perhaps, but one you feel is entirely possible when you listen to Serge explore and explain life at his workshops, presentations, video and audio recordings.
In life, we typecast our view on things, making those views manageable and easy to digest. With Serge Benhayon you can’t do this without creating injustice to the representation of who he is, what he embodies and what he shares with all, for all.
My relationship was coming to an end, my body was fast giving out – suffering with fibromyalgia and unable to continue running my business or to maintain my property.
Serge has been an absolute support and inspiration for me in my relationship with my partner, always there no matter what time of day or night. He listened to me cry, rant, rave or blame, forever feeling like I was in a relationship that had no purpose, a relationship where we were constantly at each other, nit picking, highly reactive to each other. I remember one day calling Serge in absolute tears, I could barely talk, which happened many times during the early years of with my partner and my relationship, and again, he listened intently, offering simple words, ‘Be patient, give it time’. Words I had heard before from him, and all I could think was, ‘Really… again… how patient can a woman be?!’. I was waiting for the ‘I told you so’ however never in my 15+ years of knowing Serge has he ever told me what to do or what not to do … that is the beautiful thing, he never judges, criticises or imposes anything at anytime.
True love holds all equally and is open without holding back to everyone we encounter. There is no attachment to any special others in true love. There simply cannot be because love radiates out to embrace all without favour as the sun showers its warmth and light on us all. Love seeks the advancement and unfolding of all in their fullness and true nature. Because there is no attachment, it does not seek to pander to others to win their favour. Love knows not favour; it only knows Truth, and so there can be no holding back in calling out the harmful behaviour of another when we see them acting in ways that are untruthful, harming to themselves and others.
Beliefs like a guest should be served and waited upon hand and foot were just part and parcel of the culture – and that this type of behaviour was desirable and constituted being a good host who offered great hospitality. Polite conversation, exchanging pleasantries and putting on one’s best face or front were also par for the course. The house would be tidied even more than usual and special cutlery, crystal glasses and dinner service brought out for such special occasions.
These testimonials are written by people who have met Serge Benhayon and have been directly inspired by him.
