Mediocre messiahs – Universal Medicine’s unisex sons of GodPosted: August 1, 2013
From the safety of the protected Propaganda sites, Joel Levin expounds the kind of juvenile Esoteric fantasy that allows Universal Medicine cult apologists to deny harm and abuse in sadistic disregard for their victims. In this typically spherical ‘parable’, he tries to tell other cult members Serge Benhayon’s entranced followers are ‘ordinary’ and ‘equal’, but at the same time their access to Serge’s exclusive and overpriced ‘truth’ makes them special and ‘divine’.
Funny how Joel Levin of AHA Consulting doesn’t like using his full name on the propaganda blogs. He’s no doubt worked out that being a cult apologist is bad for business when you’re a consultant in outrage management. And there’s nothing like a bit of self-loving income protection, especially when he doesn’t give a toss that lower rung UM students are spending money they can ill afford on the ‘Livingness’ mind fuck, death and molestation drive. Some are losing their family homes. Bravo Joel.
So on with the twisted fantasy:
It is a clean crisp dawn on the Mount of Olives, birds fly overhead and the sun rises on the old city of Jerusalem. There is a hum of activity in the distance as news crew and onlookers gather for the arrival of ‘the messiah’, one of the most anticipated events in human history.
Thankfully God had given humanity plenty of notice as the specially formed committee took many years to work out the seating arrangements and make sure clergy of all faiths had been invited and sat in the right order.
Behind the enclave of clergy were barriers for the general public who wore T-shirts, hats and held commemorative placards welcoming ‘the One’. The clergy preened and adjusted their regalia, everyone moving with a nervous excitement.
At the appointed hour, a man stepped forth from behind an olive tree. He wore no special clothes, arrived without thunder or light parting through the clouds. The man has a presence but he was also ordinary. The clergy didn’t know what to do, was this a member of the public that had jumped the fence?
He steps up to the waiting microphone and waits in silence, until one of the clergy asks “Who are you?”.
“I am a son of God” comes the reply.
The crowd cheered as they hear the words they had been waiting for, but some of the clergy grew suspicious.
“What do you mean a son of God, don’t you mean THE son of God, how do we know you are who you say you are?” one of the clergy responded.
After some time he said “We are all sons of God, equally so. I am no different to you or you to each other”.
“Show us a miracle; prove to us who you are” they demanded.
“I live everyday with joy, love and vitality” he responded simply.
“Yes, yes but tell us something about God we don’t know” came the abrupt reply.
“You already know God, he lives within you” was the answer.
“Jesus already said that; tell us something we don’t know…” they persisted.
“You have created an illusion that life is what you think it is, rather than living simply from the inner heart”, was his simple response.
“Buddha already said that, tell us who will be saved”, they demanded again.
The Buddha said that where? In the book of Serge?
“Anyone that chooses to put love for themselves, their body and their light will be saved by themselves and in doing so will truly give love to others. It is the fear of your own light that you fight” he responded lightly, unperturbed.
“Yes, yes, now you’re just combining Patanjali and Nelson Mandela – tell us something new” was their impatient retort.
Again he replied with the same.
“There is nothing new here; there is nothing different to be said. The choice has always been there – be willing to step away from things you do that give you identity and ask yourself about how you can live in harmony with the divinity that is already in you. That is where God lives.”
In other words, be willing to step away from the critical mind that enables you to discern what is bullshit, and might make you realize the Esoteric ‘God’ is Serge colonizing what you used to be your healthy mind.
There was silence among the crowd. Some people walked away in despair, some started to shout out questions, some started to interpret what was said to suit their own ends. The clergy started to fight among themselves, simultaneously trying to discount the credibility of this man and about whose religion had taught these principles first.
The day descended into humanity once again choosing to search for an answer that was outside of their own choices, an answer that confirms what they have already chosen to believe, an answer that keeps everything as it is.
The cult’s most comforting fantasy is that its critics have a problem with their religious message and we are opposed to their imagined religious ‘freedom’ (that prohibits questions or criticism). If Universal Medicine was only about living in some godly or divine way, more than 99% of us would not be bothered.
Contrary to Joel’s asinine metaphors, UM’s critics don’t fight amongst themselves trying to figure out the genesis of Serge’s self-loving message. We are working together to oppose the vast harm done by the group, and to call them to account for the suffering they cause. Again, the list: the harm done to minds with habit forming, damaging ‘health’ practices, molestation, rorting, privacy invasion, attacks on critics, censoriousness, physical and psychological harm to children, damage to relationships and families, sexism, deception, lies, denials of abuse…
Another fallacy is that Esoteric sons of God are ‘ordinary members of the public’, but there’s nothing ordinary about molesting others, portraying it as ‘healing’ and denying sexual abuse and all the other abuses of the Universal Medicine cult. Just as he infers facing critics and behaving accountably is inconveniently ‘complex’, and living ‘simply from the inner heart’ is a state of denial enablers find easier than confronting the harm they’ve done.
On top of that, Joel and the other cult colluders try to present Serge’s Esoteric mind mash as the ‘answer’ to the world’s problems, when all evidence shows it’s made the existences of thousands considerably worse.
Believe what you want, Joel Levin, but if you are participating in harm, expect public opposition, and expect that people like us will expose all responsible and work to bring them to justice.
On that day humanity invested in complexity once again and preferred to restart the clock on its wait for ‘the real messiah’, rather than consider the possibility that all those messengers past and present saying the same thing, might be onto something.
God lovingly looked on, allowing man free will to chose how they learnt this simple lesson, wondering when his beloved children would realise the merry-go-round they live on, is of their own making.
But this is not the case for all of humanity…
There are more and more people all over the world who are no longer waiting and have taken their destiny into their own hands.
They wake rested from their nights sleep. They treat their body with tenderness, communicate with honesty, work with integrity and laugh with true joy. They are not perfect, but each drop into an old way of being serves to remind them of how amazing they are, rather than confirm that they can’t save themselves. Each choice builds from the last and makes the next easier to make. Each choice comes with a loving disciple that holds life with tenderness and grace.
The same way Serge holds the private parts of unsuspecting and vulnerable sexual abuse victims as they divulge their painful pasts. The same way he talks with tenderness and grace about underaged sex, or how anyone not committed to his dogma is a Judas sentenced to life times of mental disability, or how anyone critical is a ‘loveless’ member of the astral cult.
They make these choices because each of them accepted that ‘they are a son of God’ and there is no better time to start living that fact than right now.
In denial of all the damage.
*** Dedicated to Serge Benhayon – Not the Messiah but an awesome example of a person living a loving way of being as best as one can.
And making millions out of his giant ‘healing’ scam, worshipped by piss ant abuse deniers like Joel, the culpable cult doctors, bumbling cult lawyers and mystic dentists and their infantile public fantasies that insult and demoralize those harmed.
Never mind the Esoteric ‘truth’ Dr Hall, how about the fact preschool children have required major dental work because their cult struck parents have them on the Esoteric diet? Endorsed-by-you. Is that the ‘holistic dentistry’ you practice? Creating pain and trauma for families?
So beautifully expressed and a joy to read. It is crazy how we as humanity seek to complicate when it is truly so simple.
What I want to know is when are we going to have a ‘Joel’s book of parables’ to read to our kids as bedtime stories?
Yes, and your oh so simple attempt to have our blogs shut down worked well in our favour, Paula Fletcher of Universal Law solicitors, Mullumbimby. I see you’re also not keen to have your surname on your comments either. Anyway, you think shutting us down will be the end of UM’s troubles, but the horse has bolted – the facts are now in many more hands than ours. If you want to stop the trouble, you’ll need to shut down Serge.
Thanks Joel – another great blog oozing with truth and revealing man’s underlying difficulty with self-responsibility, preferring to blame another for their ills or to look to another to be saved.
Dr Eunice, the euthanasia enthusiast, likes to preach about self responsibility while exploiting the vulnerable with her toxic denials and pseudoscience. She turns a blind eye to the cult’s victims while squealing blue murder about sexual abuse by other groups.
Ordinary members of the public?
Sons of God?
I don’t think so.
