vIn essence, when I have come to a place of greater appreciation of all the unique qualities that I have to offer other people and the world, it has allowed me to let go of the need to stay in constant motion in order to avoid that nagging feeling of not being enough……..

The Truth about Serge Benhayon

I have recently been experiencing quite a free-flowing expression with my writing: without any effort, the words just seem to come out of me when I sit still and allow it. So, it was with a bit of surprise that I found myself sitting here with nothing really coming through me to share.

With a healthy dose of irony, I then began to really appreciate just how beautiful it was to simply sit here and enjoy the silence and spacious potential of the moment, without knowing what was coming next or holding onto any picture or expectation of what I should or should not be doing. This then led to what you now are reading.

A true philosopher loves people and life, and this is the purpose for deepening our understanding of each other and the world we live in, in a way that we can lovingly share with others, for the great benefit of all…..

I have been asked to write an article on “philosophy (not religion)” and this has me wondering … why would we separate the two, and if we have, which we have, when and how did that happen and would it serve to reunite them once again?

There was once a time when science, religion and philosophy were one.

We observed life, made sense of the mechanics of it (science), delved deeper into our understanding of it (philosophy) and explored our relationship with it (religion).

This applied to everything: people, plants, the stars … everything in life.

We had a relationship with everything (religion) which underpinned and supported our understanding of it (philosophy).

The ancients, such as Pythagoras and later the Pythagorean student Plato, were astute scientists and mathematicians, profound philosophers and deeply religious men.

In more recent times, scientists such as Galileo Galilei and Leonardo da Vinci were also deeply…

..we live in a world where we are energy first, and then material human beings, and the quality of the energy in which we do all these things matters enormously….

Anne Malatt on Life

We live life as if we are merely human and human life is merely physical, but deep down we have a nagging sense, a knowing even, that this is not true and that we are far more than we pretend to be.

We have experiences in life that give us a sense of the wonder, the mystery and the absolute beauty that is possible … when we hold a baby in our arms and drop our guard and feel how much we can love another being … when we truly open up to our lover and merge with them into oneness … when we meet someone for the first time and know we have known them before … when we look up at the stars and feel an old familiar feeling … a sense of connection, expansion and timelessness …

So why is it that we live a life where…

We always have a choice
We have a choice as to how we breathe and therefore how we feel…..

Anne Malatt on Life

Breathe your own breath … what on earth does that mean?

We breathe, in and out, all the time … but how aware are we of the quality of our breath and the effect that it has on the quality of our life?

We are not always conscious of our breathing, but whether we are aware of it or not, the way we breathe has a profound effect on us and how we feel.

If we are feeling anxious, our breath tends to become shallow and fast. If we are scared, we tend to hold our breath. If we feel sad, our breath can become sighing and forced. Breathing in these ways can actually reinforce how we feel and keep us stuck in an emotion or an old pattern of behaviour, and consciously changing the way we breathe can shift our moods and old ways.

We always have a choice

We can grow old gracefully. Ageing does not have to be something to be shunned or feared or avoided by artificial means. It is happening to all of us, every day…..

Doctors spend a long time training to be doctors. It takes at least 10-15 years to complete our training, which means we are usually in our thirties, at least, by the time we are ready to practise independently. Most of us love being doctors, and continue practising until quite late in life. I often wonder whether this is because we have spent so much time and energy training to be doctors that we don’t know what else to do! It is not uncommon to see doctors practising into their 70s and continuing to love their work. In a profession that advances with astonishing rapidity, it is a challenge to keep up to date with the vast amounts of information we need to know, about diseases, investigations and treatments, which continue to change and grow. So how do we deal with the challenges of being a doctor as we age?

We have the ability to ‘cure’ all sorts of ills, but with what quality are people living, and what is the level of care with which we are delivering these services?

Medicine and Serge Benhayon

by Anne Malatt, Ophthalmologist, Australia

What is the difference between care and cure?

Both words originally came from the same word – isn’t that curious?

The Latin noun ‘cura’, meaning ‘care’, became the verb ‘curare’, meaning ‘take care of’ and then the Old French ‘curer’, meaning ‘cure’.

The original sense of the word was ‘care, concern, responsibility’, particularly in a spiritual sense, but in late Middle English the meanings ‘medical care’ and ‘successful medical treatment’ arose, and hence ‘remedy’.

Interestingly, curare is also a type of poison, as are many medical treatments, when not used according to directions (and sometimes even when they are!).

Modern medicines are powerful, and sometimes a helpful treatment can become a harmful poison, especially if the dose is too high. Paracetamol is a great painkiller, but it can also kill liver cells, if taken in excess. Chemotherapy drugs are…

Words on Serge Benhayon

Over time I have come to realise that I engage in the same or similar behaviours that I judge or dislike in other people. I am also becoming more aware of where and when I do this. The next question that arises is, “Why do I do that?”
