Since the age of 14 I have been attending events held by Universal Medicine. This age also signified the start of high school in a small country town of Australia. I was very fortunate to have the combination of secondary school and the teachings of Serge Benhayon whilst growing up.
Throughout my high school endeavours until this moment where I study a full-time University degree, I can honestly say that the greatest education I have received is from Serge Benhayon and not tertiary education. Why is that?
Serge Benhayon teaches far beyond what the current education system delivers. The education system is based on recall, regurgitation of information, and advancing the mind in complete dis-connection to the body. We are not even taught the importance of taking care of our bodies and our expression, and hence we are not prepared for life.
From this dis-connection we see an increase in:
- Intellectual pride
- Intellectual might
- Intellectual arrogance
- And the complete abuse of one’s body
Where one assumes a superior state due to their affiliation of ‘knowing’ more than those around them.
Sadly, what students are often left with at their graduation ceremony, along with his or her piece of paper, is a devastatingly low state of mental and physical well-being – which no one wants to see. The exhaustion, drive, stimulation and depletion of the human frame, the attitude of ‘doing everything’ to get that wanted grade, and the result; having an ‘intelligent mind’, at the expense of the rest of the body from the head down… now how ‘intelligent’ is that?
The education system carries one major flaw, which luckily Serge Benhayon was able to cover and assist me in understanding – The basic principles of life; which I refer to as – ‘The Basics of Life’:
Love: Knowing who you are before you do anything – knowing that you are more than just a brain in a box! – You are Love! You are a human being that is deeply love in essence; deeply caring, tender, sweet, lovely, delicate, feminine, intimate and more.
Evolution: We are here to return to who we are; that natural loving state, which is our Soul-full state, compared to our current separate and individuated ways that are propelled forth by our spirit.
Brotherhood: The fact that you are equal to every other human being, and it is super important for us to begin to work together and cease the separation and abuse the world is currently exercising. For no borders, nationalities, culture or religion can truly separate us when our being and our human body all prove to us that we are equal: red blood runs in the veins of every human frame.
Responsibility: Understanding the true responsibility that each and every person carries to be loving and not abusive in all their endeavours and relationships, and understanding that how you live affects all others.
Expression is Everything: Learning interpersonal communication skills of respect, decency, communication and expression, which assist in developing true relationships with others, that are continuously deepening.
Everything is Energy: Understanding that ‘Everything is energy, therefore, everything is because of energy’ (SB), and that from this stance we can be empowered to hold strong what we feel and to go through life by feeling what feels true or not, calling out abuse for ourselves and understanding that more is at play than meets the eyes.
Self-care: Truly taking care of ourselves and our body is our responsibility! To self-care, self-nurture and self-love, which leads to a naturally vital body, including both a positive mental and physical state of well-being.
We are more than Human Beings: The fact that we are constantly supported and held to be who we truly are by an all-loving God. That we are actually here on this Earth to return to a way of living lovingly together in brotherhood, and to stop all forms of abuse. Some may call it ‘Earth School’ and some may simply see it as a re-turn to our ancient ways. Serge presents that we are more than the physical form, that we are super loving beings who are Divine love.
All of these tenets have supported me to know who I am before, during and after I do anything. Therefore, at the end of my high schools years, I stood at the podium with a knowing of who I am, that my education did not define me, and feeling quite prepared for life, whereas the majority of my cohort who stood with me were; uncertain about the future, of who they are, of what they want to do, and completely sold out to their education being everything. Why? Because why question the true state of well-being in every single body on that stage, when the majority would reply with:
- Abusive behaviours to self and others
- Dismissiveness of self and others
- And no true love, joy or health?
Because then the education system would be completely exposed as irresponsibly and uncaringly not preparing the student for life. They are a student of education, but not a student of themselves or a student of life, here to learn beyond the school classroom.
The high school environment is a meat fest. It is a playground of abuse and irresponsibility where no one is truly guided or supported to be who they truly are and interact with others in this way. This is the first breeding ground for the ills we see continue into adult life, including the dog-eat-dog world. The education system is fuelled by comparison, competition and personal lust to out-do their fellow classmates and to ‘be on top’.
The education system is based on recall from the mind. The system perpetuates a dis-connection from your body, as it propels its main focus; which is to get people from A (not knowing anything so to say) to B (being able to remember and regurgitate all that one has been told).
Is this true intelligence? The education system is simply just based on how much one can remember. So, if you can remember and regurgitate information well, under a certain time pressure, then congratulations – you are ‘intelligent’. But, get someone who is less able to remember and perform under a certain time frame and time pressure, and this person is branded as ‘unintelligent’. The basics of this system propel comparison, and no wonder the evil of competition and comparison is rife in the school playground, separating the kids from each other, and hence initially from themselves.
The education system can be likened to a sausage factory, whereby each person who enters at a young age; naturally vital, playful, creative, joyful, tender, sweet and sensitive tends to exit at year 12 (or before) with an exhausted body, given up, aggressive, and with no true settlement in their body, let alone any remnants of working together, or any of the qualities that the young version of that person emanated. This is abuse, and this proves that something is very wrong with our education system. That something has happened from A (when the young person entered school) to B (when the person exits school) – and from experience I can attest to the fact that what is missing at B, are the qualities of A. These qualities are rorted and raped by the system, and in no way developed or educated on. And from this stance we can understand why the accolades at the end of school are so focussed on, for what else has a system to champion, than the intellect of the mind?
Instead, at the end of school we should commend the students on how well they have held onto their qualities and to who they truly are (their essence), their commitment and their dedication to life. This focuses on the whole body and being of the child, not simply just the brain. Supporting children in this way, would prepare the child with all the basic skills and understandings to handle and go through life. This includes to not lose themselves within the school system, but also to be prepared for when they enter the ‘big adult world’ unguided. The difference being empowered versus underpowered youth, and the consequences of each are very clear. It is a responsibility of every adult and our entire society to support our children to grow up to be who they truly are, and not fearful or desperately seeking recognition, acceptance and identification.
What would be the result if we conducted a survey for every child to question whether they feel properly prepared for life at the end of their school career or not?
The education system is not to be relied upon by the parents and adults to ‘take care’ of their children. Given the fact that the education system only forwards the mind and not the being inside the body; there is a missing piece that the true state of our teenagers and adults signifies is deeply flawed.
Without supporting an education of the being, the body and the mind equally, there will always be something missing from our lives.
But how come we have as a society accepted this? Have we given up and sold ourselves out to ‘intelligence’ and the illusion that intelligence is the ‘greatest tool on earth’? Have we been fooled to think that education is the most important thing to focus on in order for us to get that career, that money, and the ‘comfortable financial life’ it brings?
But again, what life are we truly settling for? And are we truly settled in our own lives . . . or deep down have we wondered ‘is this all that there is’, ‘what is the true purpose of life’, ‘what is the point’, and ‘is there more to me than what my brain knows’?
I see a society that has given up, and revolves and relies comfortably on their intelligence, but I do not see a loving and evolving society that works on being together, to take responsibility for all that one does, to keep evolving and personally developing, or knowing that life is about people, relationships, love, brotherhood, commitment and truth. It is therefore clear that the missing piece to our education system lies within the re-connection to our inner-heart – where our true intelligence lies, as supported by Serge Benhayon and the teachings of Universal Medicine.
