As a little boy I was massively fascinated by the stars – always looking up at the night skies no matter where I was.
Then came the movie Star Wars, and boy oh boy, it was my fantasy come true. I felt I was both Luke Skywalker and Hans Solo rolled into one.
And when the Star Trek TV episodes hit not too long after, I decided that I would become an Astronaut and conquer Space, and go boldly where no man has gone before – like Captain Kirk.
So I had it all planned out by then . . . study to become an airforce pilot, and then get to NASA at some point and become an Astronaut . . . ha ha!
Then came the teens and the 20’s and I became a fan of Superman and Batman – one light and the other dark. And for a long time thereafter I always felt the push and pull of both Light and Dark within me, knowing very early on that we as mankind have a great capacity to do much good; but more than that we seemed to have an even greater capacity to do Evil. And so I always felt the only way to battle darkness, to fight this latent Evil lurking everywhere, was to become like Batman – angst ridden, tough and cold, vigilante by night etc. etc. And I went about life thinking I was a hero of sorts.
If you would have asked me a few years ago, who am I?
I really wouldn’t have known how to answer that, as for a long time I RAN –ran from Life – ran from Commitment to myself – Commitment to anyone or anything around me, yet thinking I was the most sorted out guy around! Imagine the Illusion’s hold over me.
All I knew was that I was a loyal guy, that I was rebellious against anything that even remotely felt ‘false’ to me and that I hated ‘monotony’ at any level and that I never pandered to anything or anyone that felt false to me. But all of this was done love-lessly!
And deep down all throughout one thing always held me in good stead, like an Angel on my shoulder watching over me – lovingly patiently – waiting for me to RETURN!
I always knew that there was something beyond this world that I had seen so far and I could always feel a deep, deep knowing that made me lean towards all kinds of spiritual teachings and philosophies in an attempt to understand the ‘mysteries of the universe’ – to conquer it all I suppose. But always knowing that there was a greater purpose to me being here, in this life – I definitely felt the PULL.
This though for a long time made me hide behind ‘arrogance’ – the supremacist energy of being more aware than others – of not rolling in the same sand as others, as being ‘extraordinary’, different, without realising that this very attitude had set me up for failures in my own life, both personal and professional, many times over.
But I kept churning inside out, never stopping, always seeking – seeking to know and understand where all this angst, this pain was coming from. I kept at it, but by then I had now grown weary – the pain of a warrior having lost many battles over time.
Then I met Serge Benhayon, and I knew that All my Life, everything failure or no failure, sadness or no sadness, pain or no pain, battles and wars, Lies et al, had been setting me up to meet TRUTH to encounter LOVE in the form of this man!
Since then, Who am I?
I am Chetan – I am claimed far more than I ever have been in all my 46 years.
It’s been a process, it’s been a journey and I have felt many a time in the past few years that I have been churned inside out – until I have been able to fully understand what true honesty and humility is all about – shown and lived in every ounce of breath by one man Serge Benhayon.
I am now a truer version of ‘loyal’ as I have once again begun to hone my discerning powers and thus am able to call out False-ness both in me and on the outside. I am now LOYAL to the TRUTH every step of the way; and so whilst I may yet not be very terribly liked, I do not hold back the power of the True me.
Though yes, now I am no more a Rebel, as I live each day with understanding and compassion – compassion for everything around me – and understanding that we all have a path of unfolding upon us, and I try and bring in more of this each day.
I am a great partner to the gorgeous woman in my life – and I keep appreciating the level of commitment that I bring to our relationship – to any relationship for that matter; something I could never do early on in all my relationships.
We are both learning to re-define what true relating is all about – and that the one and true purpose for both me and my beautiful partner is only about Evolution. And I ensure I take this equally to all and every woman I meet – my relationship with them – as I have always felt that women have been my greatest teachers in Life.
I have always been a great friend but now I am a deeper friend – as I garner more understanding of the connection and the purpose of Life we all carry within us.
I have always worked in my professional life with high integrity but there was something missing – and now I know what that was – now I understand when Serge has said many a times, ‘God is Business’ and I bring this to my work, to my clients, to my . . . each moment. Now it’s more magical to play in the area of work.
These Ancient teachings that Serge has presented via Universal Medicine have shown me how ancient I myself am, how many lives I have come from, the depth of the amazing experiences I carry in me, the wisdom of it all.
All of this has made me understand how truly madly deeply religious I am – Brotherhood, Love, Truth, they all are Religion for me, and above all, my relationship with Evolution being the greatest Religion that not many in the past few hundred years have spoken about and lived, in the way Serge Benhayon presents.
One for All – All for One
I am a great guy to have in your corner – through it all!
I guess though I will always have a part inside me – the little boy who will be Luke Skywalker or Superman or Hans Solo or Captain Kirk but this time around I do not have to reach for the stars as I have been shown I belong in them – I come from them – and I will return to them someday . . .
