Recently I was invited to be a speaker in a webinar called Unity in Humanity. It is an American based Interfaith Celebration with speakers from different religious backgrounds. This year’s theme was about relationship with the Divine Creator, giving the audience an opportunity to hear about the differences but, more importantly, to hear about the similarities in different religions.
Although my niece, Jill VanHaren the convener or the webinar, and I live in different countries we have spent quite a bit of time together the last couple of years, thanks to zoom. While we don’t necessarily focus on our religious practices during our zoom calls it does appear regularly in our conversations because of the importance that this has in both of our lives. So, when she started to organise this year’s webinar, she invited me to be one of the guest speakers. I said ‘yes’ rather casually, you know, sort of a ‘Sure, I'd be happy to.’
Then as the day of the webinar drew closer, I started to contemplate how could I share anything meaningful about The Ageless Wisdom in a 30-minute slot. I knew I would have to be succinct! It was a great exercise in looking at the basic principles. One thing I realised in preparing for the webinar is that as Students of the Ageless Wisdom, we don’t make a lot of public appearances talking about our religion or our way of life. We are not door knockers, so to speak. Our focus is on living what we realise, knowing that when others are ready, they will find their way, a magnetic pull if you like.
I became a student of The Ageless Wisdom over twenty years ago, so it is very much my daily life. I don’t spend a lot of time ‘thinking’ about it but I do spend every moment living it, to the best of my ability. What could I say that would give others a glimpse into The Way of the Livingness which is what we (the students of the Ageless Wisdom) call our religion in the 21st century. I invite you to watch the YouTube video, if you are curious.
The Ageless Wisdom presentation starts at 1:41:52 into the webinar.
Yes, all of this and so much more. He is a presenter, a friend, a son, father, husband and some would say a world teacher. So how does one begin to write a blog on a man like that?
I could zoom in on any one aspect and end up with a book. But like most of my writing, I tend to come from personal experience, and so that is how I will attempt to paint a portrait, with words, of Serge Benhayon.
I first met Serge when he was still a tennis coach.
