The Cycle of Responsibility

Each day a new dawn, the sun rises and another day begins, yesterday is forgotten, it doesn’t matter how I was, what I did or said as today is a new day and all that occurred yesterday is behind me, somehow taken care of, wiped away by the passage of time while I slept.
But is the slate really wiped clean, have my deeds been erased or is it a convenient way of thinking that creates the appearance that I seemingly move from one day to the next with all I have done now in the past? Or could it be that each day carries forward the past and all I’m actually doing is revolving with the planet, going around in circles repeating cycles of 24 hours where everything in my past is carried with me?

When considering these two viewpoints, one appears to allow me to do and say as I please, never needing to suffer the consequences or deal with my issues because they are in the past and gone. The other would mean that everything has an outcome, a ripple effect and an imprint that I come back to and live day after day.

Nature and Life are cyclical in essence with day and night, the seasons, the orbit of the planets, the water cycle, the carbon and nitrogen cycles; the biochemical metabolic processes of the body like the Kerbs cycle, sleep and circadian rhythms, the menstrual cycle, digestion and elimination, respiration, circulation and life and death. This being the case would it not make more sense that time and thus we too are cyclical and not lineal in nature.

Holding on to the concept that each day is a separate new day and that time is lineal allows us to be irresponsible with how we live, how we are with ourselves and others, how we interact and the things that we do. It allows us to not have to deal with our hurts or emotional issues because they are seen as in the past.
However, if life is cyclical this would mean that the past is not in fact the past but something that is lived in the now until it is resolved, healed and truly let go and that everything we do comes back to us in one shape or form.

This can be seen negatively if we treat ourself and others poorly or as positively if we are caring, considerate, gentle, loving and treat others how we would want to be treated. This cyclical nature to life, under the law of cause and effect or Karma, however would demand of us to live with a higher level of integrity and responsibility, which perhaps for some is too challenging a notion to consider as often we do not like to be held that accountable and hence why we are not open to outcomes in life being due to our own choices. If what happens to us is a result of our deeds and choices coming back to us then we can no longer blame the world for the circumstances of our life.

To keep thinking that each day is gone and no longer a part of our life and that external influences shape events is like stepping out of a messy room that we have created thinking that when we come back in all the mess will have magically disappeared. But as life is cyclical we return to that messy room day after day unless we take responsibility and start to tidy up what we choose to leave behind. This means taking responsibility for our choices and being willing to deal with our unresolved issues and emotional hurts so as to free ourselves from the patterns and habits that seemingly shape who we are.

At the core of the principles presented by Serge Benhayon of Universal Medicine is that everything we are, do, say and think and our state of being or energy affects all of life simultaneously and that life is a repeating cycle of 24 hours. That the way we are today sets up the way we are tomorrow and to expand on that the way we are this life influences our next. And hence if this is the case then would it not serve us to be more aware and responsible for our choices and the way we are with others and ourselves.

Taking responsibility is not always easy, it begins with a commitment to be more self- loving, gentle and caring of ourself and our body and thus of others. Being responsible asks us to become more aware of and acknowledge the choices we make and the part that we play in life instead of considering ourselves like a pinball randomly bouncing from one thing to another. It also includes us being honest and willing to deal with our issues, hurts and ways of being that keep us from living with more love and respect for ourself and those around us.

Since choosing to live this way my life has been greatly enhanced, I have a better understanding of how I feel, why I react to certain events or situations and what lies unresolved under the surface that is influencing my choices and behaviours. I feel much more in control of myself and in charge of my life from the way I am with myself, what foods I eat, to my sleep, my relationships, the way I work and how I exercise. I feel I am more understanding and compassionate with myself and others, that I am more patient and better able to cope with life. I would not say life is easier but it is certainly a lot less complicated. As a result of feeling this way I am less stressed, wake up refreshed and full of energy, have lost weight, am fitter and healthier and have got to know who I am.

I am able to stop and reflect on my day, my emotions and behaviours and see what was triggered in me or what lead to certain events or me feeling how I do and work on it instead of blaming circumstances or others. This also applies to when I am feeling amazing or have had a great day. It is like having a mini stocktake and appreciating what is truly helpful and what isn’t then choosing to keep what works and let go of what doesn’t. Living this way has been and is very empowering as I know that in each and every moment I have the ability to choose how I want to be, what I want to do and how to feel.

What I have realised is that our past choices really do create our future so unless we choose to live differently it will simply be a case of history repeating itself day after day and perhaps life after life.

The Best Day

I had the best day yesterday at the Universal Medicine end of year talk, concert and dance celebration. The room was full with so much love, laughter, fun and talent and amazing people all under one roof having the time of their life. No alcohol or drugs needed here just people being themselves and having a blast. I danced my butt off (not literally!), clapped, cheered, laughed, cried and sang my heart out.
Thank you to all the great speakers and performers, my family and wonderful friends for providing such a special day. My heart is bursting with love for you all this day and everyday.

I look back at my life and alcohol fuelled nights full of hazy memories, vomiting and hangovers and feel a deep joy at knowing that I can have the best day and days ever without the need to alter who I am in any way shape or form. So a huge shout out to my main man Mr Serge Benhayon and all the awesome, amazing students of The Ancient Wisdom who are choosing to live a life of self-care, love and connection to others.

 

Who Knew Meditation Could Be So Simple

In this blog I share my experience of the Gentle Breath Mediation.

It is a simple technique that has been invaluable to me and the way that I live today.

The Truth about Serge Benhayon

by Dr Rachel Hall, Holistic Dentist, Kenmore, Brisbane

When I started on my path of personal development I thought it would be a good idea to incorporate meditation – after all, everyone else seemed to be doing it. All the self-help books raved about it, and it seemed you couldn’t connect to your higher self (whatever that was) without it. There was no doubt about it: if you wanted to be enlightened, meditation was the key.

The Body Knows Best

You may be able to trick me, you can even trick yourself

BUT……You CAN’T trick your BODY.” RH

The body has no hidden agenda it simply is – it says this works for me or this doesn’t. The problem is we don’t listen because we have been taught not to and that knowledge given to us from the outside is more powerful. I have found since listening to Serge Benhayon, that yes indeed the body does know best and it never lets you down.

Sometimes I find it hard to listen to the messages from my body as it shows me how my choices haven’t always been that self-caring or responsible. But what is lovely is when I am being more respectful of what my body requires is how wonderful I feel. That for me is the proof that what Serge lives and shares actually works; that the knowledge of all things is already known within each and every one of us.

Cyber-bullying: My Personal Experience

Recently I have witnessed and experienced the effects of cyber-bullying, trolling, online vitriol and hate speak on a personal level. I have have watched some close friends get misrepresented, bad-mouthed, criticised, derided, smeared, intimidated and defamed online and in the National mainstream media. I have become caught up in this by association because I have chosen over the years to attend presentations and workshops to assist with my personal development, spiritual growth and self-healing.

Because I have chosen to attend healing courses run by Universal Medicine my reputation, my good name and character and my professional integrity have been and are being dragged through the mud.

I have been personally labelled a follower in the newspaper, told I am a member of a cult and become a victim of cyber-bullying, hate speak, trolling and online defamation. I have been accused of being part of a recruitment cartel for a cult and doing this under my professional status. These people do not know me and are making wild accusations and assumptions about me that are disturbing and designed to harm my professional status.

All of these allegations could not be further from the truth and I am appalled and outraged that such lies, rumours and gossip mongering has been allowed to happen not only to me but to Universal Medicine and all those associated with them.

There are web forums and blog sites actively targeting, defaming and attempting to discredit and ruin the reputation of myself, other health care professionals, doctors, dentists and businesses simply because people choose of their free will to attend workshops, listen to an audio presentation or read a book. These forums and sites are run by a small number of people who appear to be disgruntled with what Universal Medicine presents and the choices people are making to live more lovingly.

These people (who I may or may not know) are acting as cowards and bullies hiding behind anonymity, fake names and pseudonyms because perhaps deep down they know what they are doing is immoral, outrageous and wrong.

Cyber-bullies get away with it because the law and Government policy has not caught up to where society is at. They get away with it under the dark veil of not having to provide proper verification of their identity when setting up sites and thus are difficult to trace and bring to task.

It is disgraceful that this style of bullying, name calling and wild accusations can and are allowed to happen; as if it were going on in a school or work place it simply would not be tolerated. There is something dramatically wrong with the policies and laws of this land when they are set up to protect an anonymous abuser over an upstanding, innocent, professional member of society. The status quo needs to change and quickly.

Loving Life

burstoflight

Around 9 years ago I drove home one night and could not remember how I’d actually got there. Which is pretty scary stuff when you have gone through traffic lights, made turns across traffic and driven at high speed on the freeway (back then speed limits were for pansies). I pulled up outside my house and sat in my car wondering why if I had everything I had always wanted in my life why deep inside I was so miserable. Nothing was enough, the more I had the more I wanted and needed to fill the void within me.

As I sat in the car reviewing my life and a voice inside said “there has to be more to life than this, surely this isn’t it”. In that moment I felt my whole life come to a complete stop and knew that things needed to change. But what and how? My life was already on paper very successful and ticked all the boxes for what should essentially be a perfect life.

What I came to realise is that the changes needed to come from in me, I had so much unresolved emotional pain, blame, resentment and had a body that was highly strung, tight, tense and very stressed. I was regularly having heart palpitations and could not get through the day without huge amounts of coffee, starchy foods, cheese and a couple of beers to chill out before bed.

I was exhausted, I couldn’t keep living this way. So I dabbled with having acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, kinesiology and a type of NLP but nothing felt right or was able to offer any answers. All I got was short term relief but nothing that actually held or resolved anything.

It was at this time that I first attended a Universal Medicine workshop hosted by an ordinary guy by the name of Serge Benhayon.

What was presented during the day reawakened a part of me that I had not connected to since I was a small child and I simply knew this was the real deal and what I had been looking for, not because of what Serge presented but because of what and how I felt inside.

Today through the connection I re-established with myself and via the presentations and healing modalities of Universal Medicine I have made some profound changes to how I am and some simple changes to how I live and I can truly and honestly say that I am Loving Life…………

Anything for a Story

Last night my friends and family were violated by the press in the name of trying to get a media story where there is none to be had. We have been accused of being a cult and mindless brainwashed followers. Those of you who know me will know what a ludicrous statement that is. We are people wanting to live better lives, wanting to improve our health and relationships and to be more loving and caring members of the human race.
I for one will continue to live in the way I have chosen and will not be swayed from the choice I have openly and freely made from my heart as in the end love is the only way.
