Re: “New age medicine of Serge Benhayon leaves a trail of broken families”

As General Manager of a film and television company in Melbourne, I expect a level of commitment of my team to research and investigate new technology to ensure we have all our facts straight before proceeding with any commitment that could impact on the success of the business.

As the Editor/s, and manager/s of a team of journalists, and a member of a national news network, I am surprised that neither your, Josh Robertson or Liam Walsh, did any investigation or research into Universal Medicine, Serge Benhayon, or the true intelligence of women such as myself, in fact, all women.

Why are you not putting on the front page the skyrocketing increases in diabetes, cancer of all types, heart disease, lung conditions, mental illness, alcohol abuse – and the most affected by this ‘story’ – domestic violence towards women??

Isn’t it time we started to arrest these alarming statistics?

According to Diabetes Australia:

“Up to 60% of cases of type 2 diabetes can be prevented. The total number of Australians with diabetes and pre-diabetes is estimated at 3.2 million”

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare:

“The risk of being diagnosed with cancer before the age of 75 years is 1 in 3 for males and 1 in 4 for females.
“The risk before age 85 years is higher, at 1 in 2 for males and 1 in 3 for females.”

According to the Parliament of Australia:

“Alcohol is a significant risk factor for domestic violence, particularly in Indigenous communities. A longitudinal analysis of alcohol outlet density found a relationship between alcohol availability and domestic violence. Packaged liquor outlets that sell alcohol for off-premise consumption were particularly implicated.”

And, from the Australian Domestic and Family Violence Clearinghouse

“Children are exposed to domestic violence by witnessing violence and abuse, intervening to protect their mother, being present in a household filled with violence and terrorising behaviours as well as being directly abused themselves.”

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics:

In 2007, 47 963 divorces were granted in Australia, which is one in three, and most divorce applications are submitted by women.

The costs on our public funds are immense:

According to the Department of FaHCSIA, the cost of domestic violence on the Australian Economy is $13bn a year.

According to Diabetes Australia, the cost to the Economy is $10.3bn

According to the Australian Institute of health and Welfare, the cost of cancer diagnosis and treatment is $2bn a year.

Very revealing that domestic violence costs the Economy more than cancer and diabetes put together.

Divorce is costing $18bn a year – $11bn of that goes to legal costs.

Your ‘expert’, Cult Counselling Australia director Raphael Aron said of the alleged 42 marriage breakdowns “That’s an absolutely devastating figure, catastrophic”

The facts I found readily online easily show that this is a very small percentage to the national average – and as I’m sure you well know, marriage/relationship breakdowns are complicated and never attributed to one situation, but a build up of issues over time.

Most concerning for me, was your last comment  – for women “to not allow their partners to touch [their breasts] without permission”

Editor/s, may I remind you it is 2012 – and women have the right to choose when and how their breasts are touched. Isn’t that what you want for your daughter, sister, niece, granddaughter, mother – wife?  Since when did women give up the right to choose who they want to spend time with, what courses they attend, who they marry or divorce and by whom and when they allow their breasts to be touched?

I’m 44 years old and have worked all over the world in my profession and have been listening to Serge Benhayon and attending Universal Medicine courses since 2001. He is a man of the highest integrity and has never once told me what to do – ever. I consider everything he presents and make up my own mind – yes, I have one of my own. It reveals your lack of intelligence that you, without any investigation, slander women who chose to live a life of gentleness and care for themselves as ‘followers’ – I have not given up my career, education, intelligence, hopes or ambitions. I have had more true success in my work and private life since choosing to live with more tenderness towards myself.

I live an amazing life, full of wonderful friendships with women without jealousy or comparison. My commitment to care and nurture myself now is greater than I ever imagined, changes that my mother (in Toowoomba) calls miraculous. The miracle is that, through the Universal Medicine courses, I have connected to a deeper sense of love for myself and cherish myself deeply. I have wonderful friendships with men too; they are tender, truthful and loving – and I will only be intimate with a man when I feel that there is harmony, openness and true care.

A responsible life of getting to bed early, eating well, exercising and not drinking alcohol is pretty simple and can support a healthy life – and a healthy society. My choices have a positive impact on my team at work and my family, as they are seeing that there’s another way – to live a vital life with energy, clarity and consistency.

Educate yourselves, please – you are abusing your journalistic power when we very clearly need more truth in this world.

  1. Great letter Sarah. You have so eloquently laid down all the ‘blooming obvious’ – thank you. How journalists like these chose to refuse to see the facts is mind boggling!
    I have raised four boys – almost every third or fourth of their friends comes from broken relationships (married or unmarried) and not one of those people have even heard of Serge Benhayon – so who are they to assign the responsibility to for their separations?
    We have mutated into a blame culture because as a race we blatantly refuse to take responsibility for all that happens to us. It is much easier to point fingers at someone/something else than it is to look inwardly and deal with whatever has been created.
    The divorce/separation statistics are sky high and are getting higher in most (if not all) what is known as the western world. And if not in all then in most cases, there is always somebody or something to blame.
    Some relationships just not meant to be, and until we re learn to chose partners from the deepest place in our hearts, there will be separations.
    Yesterday I saw some of the US programme called: ‘Cheaters’ – where a partner hires a detective agency to follow the other party because they suspect a deceit. This man was followed for 8 days and found out (filmed) that he was having an affair. He was unemployed – telling his wife that he was ‘frantically’ looking for work daily, whilst instead he was spending time with another women in a local motel and various eating parlours. At the end, the camera crew went with the wife to confront him at the motel. This is where it gets laughable – shocking really – even though he is caught in bed with another woman, both naked, on cameras (4-6) he is refusing that he is doing anything wrong and literary he starts pointing his fingers and the blame on his wife because: she has not had sex with him in a while -she works too hard to support him and the children and is too tired when she gets back from work. So his explanation is – it is her fault and that he goes to the motel so he can relax. The journalist on the programme told him: I am sorry Sir, but I don’t think anyone with the sound mind would buy that!

    It has just occurred to me – perhaps some journalists, and editor of the Courier Mail would??

    • A wise man once said – “Revealing truth is the Spirit’s greatest fear. Being exposed in its own Glamour and Illusion is the Spirit’s most unsettling time” (SB)
      So are these journalists being exposed to truth, but don’t have the will-power to see the patterns of behaviour they accept as ‘life’? Journo’s are known for their hard drinking/drugging ways and I’m sure that everything they’ve heard about unimed would be freaking them out. I have one word for them – cowards!

      • You are right – my dad worked for a large newspaper company and we socialised with lots of journo’s and ‘top’ tv presenters etc. Any time I went out with them, I’d come back home legless (I didn’t drink normally then!) Good 95% (and I am being modest here) were hard drinkers, including women – alcohol was bigger than recreational drugs in my hay days and where I come from, though that might be different now – probably both alcohol and drugs.
