Through this connection now I realise that all of this magnificence is not for me alone or to just make my own life better. Meeting Serge Benhayon inspired me to explore the philosophy of The Way of The Livingness. I re-discovered my Soul, and that in being in connection to my Soul, my relationship with God is known. In fact, it was already a given. I feel the presence of God within me as a Godliness, and with this I know everything that I am and represent as a being. It’s very tangible and feels very natural. There is a greater awareness of my relationship with everything, the world, the universe, my universality and how this quality can be brought to every aspect of my life be it work, family or relationships.
But, and there is a “but” that deserves to be considered here, all this so-called normality in my life, was marred by an undercurrent feeling of discontent, a longing for more to life. I felt a dullness, a sadness, a monotony and suffered with melancholic tendencies. The cause of this, was that I knew in my bones and deep down that something was missing. I just knew there was a greater purpose to fulfil in life and I couldn’t let that go. I yearned and had visions of a life lived with greater simplicity, greater connection amongst us and to an otherworldliness. The ‘normal life’ I was living was not cutting it for me.
By this stage I was also experiencing regular bouts of bronchitis/tonsillitis/strep throat. Every year precisely in the same month of August I would fall ill for 1 – 2 weeks. I also was experiencing very intense lower back pain so much so that I could not bend forward to dry my hair with a towel. Even the illness I experienced is considered normal, so I learned to live with it for many years until I got to the point when I had had enough.
After exhausting all medical, complementary, natural and homeopathic medicine avenues, one practitioner suggested I try a Universal Medicine practitioner as they had observed many successes from clients that had visited the clinic. And so, this was my introduction to the teachings of the Serge Benhayon and the Ageless Wisdom Teachings, the healing modalities of Universal Medicine and the religion The Way of The Livingness.
This is where I experienced for the first-time true healing and true self-empowerment.
Whether I am singing, working, being with family, doing the shopping or just spending time with friends it is my connection to Soul that fulfils and brings purpose to every one of these moments.
This is my religion and religion is my every day.
