Episode 11 - Obesity, Big Sugar and The Intelligence of Space

Obesity as usual is all over the news… and with diabetes sufferers currently registering as the 3rd largest nation on Earth, it’s little wonder. The finger of blame is increasingly pointed at the sugar industry, but is it so simple that just banning sugar – or at least limiting its intake – would provide an easy fix for this seemingly intractable problem that threatens to overwhelm health systems worldwide?

The consumer must surely play a part . . . but that simply leads to the supply/demand conundrum that has already been exhaustively studied.

In this interview, Serge Benhayon goes to unplumbed depths to explain why the simple dictum, “Just give up sugar”, is entirely futile. It has been tried, over and over, and it has failed dismally.

Serge explains that without addressing the being that resides in the body, and forming strategies to circumvent its control over the body itself, you are simply whistling in the wind when it comes to control over your impulses. And for those who remain agnostic, Serge provides a simple exercise that can clearly demonstrate the energy that is influencing your every choice – and just how irresistible it is.

If you thought that this interview on obesity would take you into the world of gastric-band surgery, fad diets, or government funded health campaigns, you’ve got the wrong channel.

Sit up, pay attention to every word, stay connected, and Serge and Rebecca will take you where very few have ventured to answer a question that is far more than a health issue, but goes to the very nature of our being…

    This interview is completely ground breaking. In less than an hour Serge answered everything that ‘science’ is looking for to stop obesity and the other related ‘life-style diseases’ that come from sugar. I wonder how much money is actually spent on research year after year when all we actually need to address is our relationship with ourselves and the depth of love and wisdom that we are all connected to.

    “Sit up, pay attention to every word, stay connected, and Serge and Rebecca will take you where very few have ventured to answer a question that is far more than a health issue, but goes to the very nature of our being…” As a classic TV series used to say, ‘To venture where no man has gone before’, in this case Serge and Rebecca take us to universes of understanding not previously explored by humanity that explain so much of the human condition.

  • Rowena Stewart July 15, 2018   Reply →

    “Going all the way” with Serge Benhayon means dropping out of the normal realms of victimhood, blame, excuses and avoidance into the real crux of the matter, our relationship with our soul and our dogged resistence to living in accordance with the immense love that we are.

  • HM July 14, 2018   Reply →

    So fascinating to hear this and to also have a ‘brown out’ when Serge talks about being in our essence. It shows once more that the spirit is a huge part of us that knows how to manipulate the body. But when we truly connect to the soul, so much comes through us, and there is no individuality.

  • Jonathan Stewart July 13, 2018   Reply →

    I love how Serge when discussing any topic, whether it be obesity, drugs, sex, education, love, etc., he always brings a perspective that is not the norm which brings understanding to those subjects that have perplexed humanity for centuries.

  • Jonathan Stewart July 13, 2018   Reply →

    The simplicity with which Serge Benhayon communicates the understanding of the Spirit makes comprehending the complexities of life common sense.

  • Rowena Stewart July 13, 2018   Reply →

    I love how Rebecca and Serge go ‘all the way’ with this subject and hence head into the heart of the matter of why we seek medication in the form of sugar in the first place. It just confirms to me that the world we live in today sits on a foundation of medication and indulgence that we have created in order to avoid our most fundamental responsibility, to connect with our soul and live in obedience to our immense wisdom, love and integrity.

  • Rowena Stewart July 13, 2018   Reply →

    It is true. If we fully resolve our need for sugar, the demand naturally falls away. I know personally that the more I have connected to my sacredness inside and its deep sweetness, the less I have needed to seek a substitute for it in my diet or the outside world.

  • Michael Brown July 12, 2018   Reply →

    Pretty much everything contains sugar now, not just sweets but all manner of savoury items now contain added sugar to some degree.

  • Rowena Stewart July 11, 2018   Reply →

    Once again Serge Benhayon turns the conversation on its head, steering it well away from the usual approach of blaming the outside world right back to the internal power struggle between our Divine Souls and our wayward spirits. Serge Benhayon plonks all the answers right in front of us, again and again, showing us that the way home is through connecting and honouring the bodies we live in and in doing so, how we hold the power of resurrection, not the Sugar Industry.

  • Rik Connors July 9, 2018   Reply →

    Serge Benhayon and Rebecca Asquith at their best .. what can you say after that but glorify The Livingness and the intelligence always on offer through the body (not from the body). I love the ancient wisdom and the fact presented how our future is running through us all the time every time. We are space and from space bigger than the SUN.
    This interview captures the wisdom of the Soul so very well. It is a great testament to every presentation I have attended with Serge Benhayon — wisdom is alwasy delivered immersing you in clarity on what personally you sit with and how ’stuff’ holding you back just does not belong. Thus is the exquisite representation of the Soul and the awareness it brings, and I thought I was always hungry Huh!

  • Shami July 9, 2018   Reply →

    This is so amazing, what Serge Benhayon talks about here. How there is not a need to focus on the problem to come up with solutions, but rather to begin to consider the fact that we could be very powerful, beautiful and sensitive beings who are looking to avoid living that in full responsibility.

  • Lucy Dahill July 9, 2018   Reply →

    It is time to consider the extra-ordinary in the ordinary and start living this in our lives.

  • Danna Elmalah July 9, 2018   Reply →

    I absolutely agree with all that is shared in this interview. A very powerful message that we have indeed not been willing to receive as a humanity.
    Thank you for sharing what is so valuable – love in its true philosophy and true connection. Lets take on board what has been shared..

  • Ariana Ray July 8, 2018   Reply →

    “Sit up, pay attention to every word, stay connected, and Serge and Rebecca will take you where very few have ventured to answer a question that is far more than a health issue, but goes to the very nature of our being…” and that is the beauty of Serge TV which takes us to where none have ventured before.

  • Carmel Reid July 8, 2018   Reply →

    This is a great episode for understanding the shenanigans of the Spirit and to see where we can avoid getting to know who we truly are

  • Michelle Mcwaters July 8, 2018   Reply →

    Such a profound and inspiring conversation! Thank you Serge and Rebecca.

  • Natalie Hawthorne July 8, 2018   Reply →

    Serge and Rebecca are on fire, this episode is worth gold and just love the joy that is felt with the absolute truth and multidimensionality that Space is offering us all.

  • Nico van Haastrecht July 7, 2018   Reply →

    Because we have given the spirit power above being deeply connected to our body, it is able to control us in many more ways then we are aware off while it even makes us to belief that we are it and not from the cunningness of the spirit that has a complete other agenda.

  • Nico van Haastrecht July 7, 2018   Reply →

    There is a life to be lived, in which we can explore that there is another, more natural to us way of living possible then we are taught. We are amazing human beings that are able to live in harmony as multidimensional beings and it is worth to move on with this and to give it our all as it is our destined destination, we can only accelerate or delay it by our movement.

  • Tricia Nicholson July 7, 2018   Reply →

    The understanding awareness and rawness of this revolutionary look at the subject of sugar and obesity and the depth of what we are all shying away from is beautifully shared here with a realness that we can all learn from and bring to our lives with the truth of what is really going on and our choices with this.

  • HM July 7, 2018   Reply →

    I love hearing what is behind why we crave sugar – and why our spirit wants to control the body by making it out of control – using anything to take us out of being present. It makes sense to what is truly going on and gives us the ability to look at what is behind so-called cravings. If we can look at not having a problem with who we truly are and be responsible with how we are living.

  • Marianna July 7, 2018   Reply →

    What I liked was the explanation that was offered regarding what in fact drives our choices. We think it is “us” that makes the conscious or not so conscious choices in our day to day lives and we believe we have an explanation as to why – BUT little do we think that we are, in many instances, being driven away from our greater, Divine, inner aspect, (our Soul) AND in fact that is what we are actively choosing, “thinking” within the more comfortable confines of our physical world.

  • Mary July 6, 2018   Reply →

    I so appreciate Rebecca’s honesty when she explains that she has a ‘brown out’ that basically she doesn’t want to hear what Serge is presenting and so switches off. And this happens to us all a lot of the time. I have had experiences where I have felt very sleepy in some presentations and I know it is this part of me that does not want to be exposed in running the body contra to how it should be living. I am only just starting to be aware that there is another energy that is in control of my body. So my question has to be why are we not taught about energy from day dot. Why have we allowed this knowing to be subverted to such an extent that it has been lost to us? To the point that when I raise this fascinating subject in conversation people think that I’m some sort of lunatic that’s off her head?
    But what Serge Benhayon is representing is not new it was known by the ancient Greeks and other cultures thousands of years ago, and yet here we are living in a so called ‘modern society’ that is completely devoid of this understanding of our bodies and the energies that run them? Why is this?

  • Mary July 6, 2018   Reply →

    This is a huge topic to discuss and what struck me is the honesty that Rebecca has when she says we are eating out of control to avoid feeling something and then goes on to explain that research has shown that there is a trigger usually a hurt that has not been dealt with. So is this why the modalities of Universal Medicine are so successful because they support people to look at the hurt and the painful experiences and in getting to the ‘nitty gritty’ of the issue so to say then the problems just melt away. I know from my own experience with Universal Medicine modalities that this is true and life then become so much freer as there seems to be more space to breathe.

  • Gill Randall July 5, 2018   Reply →

    I love how Serge Benhayon describes how to assess any problem, that there is a set up that we go into the problem, rather than viewing it from the outside, and understand the supply and demand, whether it is drugs or sugar. As with everything, it is the being that gets affected, and the body gets stimulated by sugar, but we get to bury our insecurities or our hurts, avoiding who we really are in essence on the inside. It feels so true when Serge Benhayon says the whole set up is wrong, we need to jump in the deep end to sort this out.

  • Matilda Bathurst July 5, 2018   Reply →

    Another 56 minutes of absolute gold from Serge and Rebecca… if we are ready to go there and open ourselves up to some universal intelligence it is all here on offer.

  • Nico van Haastrecht July 5, 2018   Reply →

    It is a collective responsibility to look at the role we give sugar in our world. We actually do not need it to keep a healthy and vital body, so there must be an another reason why there is a high demand for it and therefore it is wise to look at this episode as it reveals many of the hidden and unseen movements that makes us go for the sugar and do not choose for the truth in life.

    • Lucy Dahill July 9, 2018   Reply →

      Yes, if we simply blame sugar something else will be needed to take its place. To consider the role sugar plays and why we use it / need it is the only way to then understand how to heal that which has called for the crutch in the first place.

  • Fumiyo Egashira July 5, 2018   Reply →

    I am just amazed at how this interview begins with talking about obesity, then ends up talking about evolution and the intelligence that we have access to but are not choosing. No holding back whatsoever. Very revealing of how our usually approach of problem/reaction/solution model is tunnel-visioned and would not change anything.

  • Natalie Hawthorne July 4, 2018   Reply →

    This is one extraordinary episode and the way Serge and Rebecca kept going deeper and deeper is the simple testiment that Space is Everything. Such a great inspiration in connecting to what is on offer, what we are apart of and where we come from.

    • Golnaz Shariatzadeh July 8, 2018   Reply →

      It is remarkable how when we choose to open up, deepen our understanding and truly go there with any topic, we are destined to eventually consider and connect to the stupendousness of our true essence. Wonderful how Serge Benhayon’s presentations support us, if we choose it, to speed up this process.

  • Jennifer Smith July 4, 2018   Reply →

    I love how Serge speaks about who we are, our essence and life with such depth, but in a way that is very simple and applicable to life. I could listen to this over and over.

  • Natalie Hawthorne July 4, 2018   Reply →

    Wowzers Serge if you can sum up your book on Space with such depth and enormity imagine what the book has in it!

  • Melinda Knights July 2, 2018   Reply →

    Listening to Serge there is always the opportunity to learn so much. What was particularly humbling was the information about space, that it’s not just intelligence but also the atmic body of a number of beings. That’s what we live and move in, and the awareness of this brings an incredible sacredness to life and to ourselves.

  • Jennifer Smith July 2, 2018   Reply →

    Although the presentation of what is spirit and what is soul simple, it takes time, commitment and a willingness to observe, to understand how this plays out in our own lives.

    • Nico van Haastrecht July 5, 2018   Reply →

      Indeed Jennifer, although we think we understand spirit and soul with the mind, we have to be very carefully because the spirit has its own trickery to avoid being recognised in our every day life.

  • Natalie Hawthorne July 2, 2018   Reply →

    From young I have known that what is going on around me was not what was really going on, however with everything around us saying that your not it, that you need to be something else is where we totally loose sight of any essence that we know to be true and who we truly are.

  • Michael Brown July 1, 2018   Reply →

    This interview is so beautifully open and uncut, just how all should be.

    • Matilda Bathurst July 5, 2018   Reply →

      Yes, humble and real, this interview is an open invitation to us all to explore our relationship with space and responsibility.

  • Joseph Barker July 1, 2018   Reply →

    These videos ought to be watched by the whole world. Yet the fact that they are not (yet) is not down to restricted access but the reality that for most fight and resist the truth in life.

  • Ariana Ray June 30, 2018   Reply →

    In this powerful episode of Serge TV, Serge Benhayon shares that the spirit wants to make the body less responsive, that’s the control. It’s forever escaping its divineness to avoid our power and responsibility. And the divineness is ready and waiting for us all to embrace, for I get the sense that responsibility is an embrace and not a burden we have been raised to believe.

  • Fiona Pierce June 30, 2018   Reply →

    Love the depth of understanding and awareness that is offered here – if we just look at our food choices on a surface level and blame food industry then we can miss really appreciating what is going on and getting behind why we may be going for foods that are actually harming us rather than being nourishing.

  • Ariana Ray June 30, 2018   Reply →

    In this episode, Serge Benhayon shares that we are eating out of control to avoid power and responsibility. I can feel in my own life just how true this is. To embrace who we are with all the responsibility and power this comes with is the only way forward. For there is no going back.

  • Golnaz Shariatzadeh June 30, 2018   Reply →

    I love how Serge Benhayon presents. He says it as is and does not hold back from exposing anything that goes against love and care of all humanity for the rot that it perpetuates. But he does not stop there and it is never about doom and gloom nor pointing the finger. He always inspires a far deeper observation of what is at play, which offers a greater sense of humility, responsibility, possibility and empowerment.

  • Gill Randall June 29, 2018   Reply →

    When we look around, it appears that we are growing bigger as a nation, so there must be a reason for this, and it is logical to me that a lot of people eat for comfort. I know I used to do this as well, rather than looking at something I didn’t want to see of feel something I didn’t want to feel. It has been accepted that emotional eating happens, the next step is to feel why we eat rather than dealing with the emotion.

  • Ingrid Ward June 29, 2018   Reply →

    What a riveting episode this is from the wisdom shared about sugar, the spirit and the soul. The way Serge Benhayon explains the difference between spirit and soul is so refreshing and makes so much sense of the so-called challenges of life, which now I realise were, in the main, at the instigation of my spirit. How very different my life would have been if this had been shared with me as a young child.

  • Joseph Barker June 29, 2018   Reply →

    What started out as a simple chat about obesity ends up blowing your mind and presenting the truth about the whole of life. But this is par for the course with any talk with Serge. He goes to the essence of everything.

    • Ingrid Ward July 4, 2018   Reply →

      I too love the directions this interview took, covering so many topics, so much wisdom shared and so much joy in the interviewing from Rebecca Asquith and the life-changing answers from Serge Benhayon. I felt it went on forever but not for one moment was I bored or wanted to walk away from the screen. More in depth interviews like this please.

  • Carmel Reid June 29, 2018   Reply →

    ‘We eat to muffle our sadness’ this is so true, we don’t eat because we are hungry, most of us eat for the effect the food has on our vibration, and our ability to feel.

  • Shirley-Ann Walters June 29, 2018   Reply →

    What a breath of fresh air to hear the truth about who we are and why we behave as we do, yet with such love and understanding to support us to return to our true way.

    • Nattalija July 1, 2018   Reply →

      Bringing truth to all the excuse we use to stop ourselves from feeling the true power we all hold within.

  • Gill Randall June 28, 2018   Reply →

    I understand the supply and demand discussion that Serge Benhayon describes that the demand comes first and the supply is being filled. And the way we are in the world shows us there is lots of disharmony so the body gets affected and people need their fix of sugar to cope and dull themselves.

  • Ariana Ray June 28, 2018   Reply →

    In Episode 11, Serge Benhayon presents ‘The whole set up is wrong, we are living in a society that is not set up for our brilliance. We know more about everything than we have ever known before and yet nothing is better for that. We have an inner-being that is out of control.’ And the play-out of having an inner being that is out of control is the state of the world today. This episode is such a powerful expose of just how the out of control being runs the show.

  • kehinde james June 28, 2018   Reply →

    Another layer uncovered: obesity is not simply a reponse to past hurts and abuse, but from not truly living the brilliance of who we are and this is the greatest hurt of all.

  • Golnaz Shariatzadeh June 28, 2018   Reply →

    Wow there is so much covered by Serge Benhayon and Rebecca Asquith here. It is so significant that it is never about mind control and forcing yourself to change your behaviour. As always Serge Benhayon’s presentation invites us to observe what we see in life as a reflection of our chosen relationship with the expression of our true essence. Not as an ideal, dogma or even a belief, but as a deepening understanding of the energetic dynamics that go on behind the scene.

  • Jennifer Smith June 28, 2018   Reply →

    “We know more about everything, than at any other time in the world, and yet our problems are still escalating” What Serge Benhayon has said here is something worth stopping and considering. If we know more about everything, we have to ask ourselves how much does this level of knowledge really provide support to everyone. I recall in my own life needing to complete course after course I thought this would be of a greater support. But it only put me in a place where I continually doubted myself because I didn’t know enough, therefore stimulating my need to do more and more. Knowledge is not the be all and end all because we have to look at the whole picture. Does having knowledge help be more loving with people in my life, including myself? Does it assist me in develop an honest way of expressing all that is to be expressed? It certainly did none of that for me.

  • Ariana Ray June 27, 2018   Reply →

    What a super star Serge Benhayon is – Episode 11 shares ‘We know more about everything than we have ever known before and yet nothing is better for that. We have an inner-being that is out of control.’ We cannot defend against such a statement, for it is of course all too true. All we need to do is look at the statistics to see this. Taking 100 steps back is therefore needed to see exactly where we have travelled to get here.

  • Joshua Campbell June 27, 2018   Reply →

    I am sure I am not the only one who finds what Serge shares can be quite confronting but equally empowering. We can choose to react to what he shares and resist and fight and even retaliate but what value does that bring anyone? This world is loaded with lies and the best place to start is to be honest with how much we have let ourselves be fouled by them.

  • Peta Lehane June 27, 2018   Reply →

    Such a joy to watch this as I did the dishes this evening…my whole body feels the expansion of all that was brought through space in this very beautiful exchange, an interview par excellence. Thank you both.

  • Lieke Campbell June 27, 2018   Reply →

    This explains why we can eat something that makes us feel more tired and heavy after we have eaten it than before. There is no logic to this and actually it is really clearly not wise but as long as we keep going we won’t see it or are choosing to not see it by the way we move.

  • Jennifer Smith June 27, 2018   Reply →

    OMG…This conversation is a keeper. I adore everything in this episode. Starting with our relationship with food to then discussing what really is space and the everything in between. Both Serge and Rebecca have reach a new point in this amazing series. This is true education.

  • Michael Brown June 27, 2018   Reply →

    I love how Serge brings it back to the responsibility of the consumer.

    • Matilda Bathurst July 5, 2018   Reply →

      Waking us up to the part we all play in everything, yes very cool.

  • Jennifer Smith June 27, 2018   Reply →

    I love the explanation of our relationship with food. In fact how often do we sit and talk about the fact that we all have a relationship with food and then, what is the quality of that relationship? How do we use food, or should I say how do we allow the spirit within to use the food we consume? This exquisite conversation invites a deeper look into why, how and what we eat, and asks us to consider what we are choosing to eat and why.

  • Joshua Campbell June 26, 2018   Reply →

    Wow! What more can be said? Serge has basically answered all our questions about who we are, where we come from, why we are here, why life is so upside down for most and why nothing makes sense. Whether we like to humble up to the facts presented or not, does not change the truth.

  • Leigh Matson June 26, 2018   Reply →

    I’d agree in that whenever my diet goes off the rails, theres a feeling of tension and underneath that theres a feeling of beauty and amazingness within me to be aware of that I had chosen to avoid.

  • Ariana Ray June 26, 2018   Reply →

    So it comes down to ‘the energy that is influencing your every choice’. We are fooled big time if we don’t get past the point of understanding it’s the energy we choose. This is a superb open and frank look at why ‘will-power’ is not it.

  • rosanna bianchini June 26, 2018   Reply →

    The root cause of obesity, psychology of the spirit, True Movement and living the future now, Rebecca and Serge really go there, love the conversational style, honesty, exposés and love between these two.

  • Alison Valentine June 26, 2018   Reply →

    To blame the sugar industry and the food industry for supplying what we are demanding will never get to the root of the issue of what causes us to eat to the point of obesity. We need to see that the set up and model of life is not working, that if we crush who we are, we are never going to see the grandness of who we truly are and be able to honour this. As Serge Benhayon has presented many, many times, from an early age everything is set up to crush our light through education, friends, work, parenting, family, the list is endless, to make sure we never allow ourselves to connect to, and live in the fullness, the purity and delicateness of who we truly are and the grandness we come from. We need to go deeper with our questions on life and Rebecca and Serge take us there and offers a greater understanding that we are blind to life outside what we are able to see. The understanding of time and space and movement takes us to a deeper level and no scientist I know has to date been able to take us to this level of understanding. Super powerful and time for the world to stop and take note.

  • Stephanie Stevenson June 26, 2018   Reply →

    Wow…Phenomenal, powerful interview between Rebecca Asquith and Serge Benhayon diving deep to bring wisdom, clarity and insight of the power that our spirit has in controlling our movements to keep us capped from being the grand, multidimensional beings we are in truth. This will be replayed and enjoyed many times over for a deeper understanding of this truth in the body.

  • Golnaz Shariatzadeh June 26, 2018   Reply →

    It is remarkable how when looking to expand our understanding of any issue in life, the thread always eventually leads to the need to deepen our awareness of the difference between spirit and Soul and how this impacts human life. I love how Serge Benhyaon’s presentations so simply and clearly offer the clues and the space that help unravel the complicated ideals and beliefs we may hold and go deeper.

  • Rowena Stewart June 26, 2018   Reply →

    Sugar is a deadly substance. Not only is it highly addictive, it strips our body of vital nutrients, attacks our teeth and gums, crashes our blood sugar balance and over-rides our hormone system. Weaning myself off it has been one of the best decisions ever made and all made possible by learning how to connect to my body and become aware of the real consequences of consuming this lethal substance. When we are supported to care for our being-ness within, it can radically change the quality of our health as we begin to refine what we consume based on how it makes us feel.

  • Caroline Francis June 26, 2018   Reply →

    Isn’t it beautiful when we feel the root cause for the reason we eat sugar? As I begin to live again since I was a child the power of who I truly am, I am learning to be aware of when another tries to cut me down… the energy of supremacy. It can be sneaky and shocking but it can come through anyone including those you least expect. It is about reading and seeing everything as energy and not because of who the person is in terms of looks, relationship in the past or what they can do.
