Our Body and Its Amazingness

by Matts Josefsson, Student in Behavioural Science, Sweden 

I find the body absolutely extraordinary in the way it functions. Just this morning I was reminded how amazingly it just keeps on doing what it does, regardless of what we do to it, up until the point that it cannot support us any longer. What I also came to think about was how and why things occur in the body and how the way we are living with the body must have an effect on it. Science these days knows a great deal about how the body functions but still there are the questions that go unanswered as to why things actually occur. There are extraordinary experts in knowing how to deal with something once it has occurred, but the bigger struggle is still trying to understand why things occur. For example: why do cells starts to divide in a way that later on leads to cancer?

To try and understand all of this I went to the Cancer Research UK website (1) and read about how cancer starts and I read:

“All cancers begin in cells. Our bodies are made up of more than a hundred million million (100,000,000,000,000) cells. Cancer starts with changes in one cell or a small group of cells.”
“Usually we have just the right number of each type of cell. This is because cells produce signals to control how much and how often the cells divide. If any of these signals are faulty or missing, cells may start to grow and multiply too much and form a lump called a tumour. Where the cancer starts is called the primary tumour.”
“For a cancer to start, certain changes take place within the genes of a cell or a group of cells.”

Just by reading this I feel quite humble, as you get to know that the cells obviously know exactly what to do to give us optimal health. They are like our own little soldiers of health inside our body and they work around the clock to keep everything going. But there is obviously something that can happen that makes the cells behave in a way that is not their usual way, or you could say that they lose their natural rhythm and flow in how to behave. And this starts, from what I have read, in the genes in the cell:

“Normally genes make sure that cells grow and reproduce in an orderly and controlled way. They make sure that more cells are produced as they are needed to keep the body healthy.”
“Sometimes a change happens in the genes when a cell divides. The change is called a mutation. It means that a gene has been damaged or lost or copied twice. Mutations can happen by chance when a cell is dividing. Some mutations mean that the cell no longer understands its instructions and starts to grow out of control. There have to be about half a dozen different mutations before a normal cell turns into a cancer cell.”

By reading this you can almost feel that in its healthy state, the body is at rest with itself, there is a harmony and rhythm in which the body and its cells cooperate and work in a homeostatic, self-sustaining way. However and contrary to that, in illness and disease you can feel how the body has become out of balance. Something has happened that makes the body act in a way as if it has to defend itself. The former harmony has changed into alert mode and there is a feeling of stress upon the body.

But my inquisitive mind wants to ask: why do these cell mutations occur? I read from the website that:

“Mutations can happen by chance when a cell is dividing. They can also be caused by the processes of life inside the cell. Or they can be caused by things coming from outside the body, such as the chemicals in tobacco smoke. And some people can inherit faults in particular genes that make them more likely to develop a cancer.”
“Some genes get damaged every day and cells are very good at repairing them. But over time, the damage may build up. And once cells start growing too fast, they are more likely to pick up further mutations and less likely to be able to repair the damaged genes.”

So from reading this, I realise that the way life is outside of the cells is paramount to how life plays out inside of the cells. This means that the cells know exactly what to do and how to behave if there is harmony within and around them, but if there is stress and disharmony they might work for a certain amount of time, but eventually the force that is working against the body makes the cells eventually go out of rhythm and form what we then call, in this case, cancer.

Just by becoming more aware of how the body actually works, I have become more humble and am treating my body with the utmost care, since it cares for me every day.

Universal Medicine is the leading organisation in understanding how the body works in its entirety and also why the body does what it does in terms of breaking down when it develops different forms of illnesses and diseases. From the teachings presented by Serge Benhayon I understand that the body is made up from particles that are also a part of a universe that has a very precise and delicate order. This means that the particles of our body respond to what is going on in the universe and that we have a rhythm to adhere to, as does everything else in the universe.

So from this I realise that how I am with myself is important, because I know that the cells within me will respond accordingly. If I am harsh and not listening to the signals I get from my body, then the cells also have to work harder to keep everything going. And on the other hand, if I listen and go more gentle with myself, then the cells can bathe in a body that is warm and tender and that feels much more yummy.

I greatly appreciate what I have learned through Universal Medicine and also deeply value the gorgeous medical staff that are working patiently in the hospitals to look after us when we need their assistance. I also appreciate myself for being so open and willing to understand life and make changes if there are changes to be made, which make my inner environment even more delicate and tender.

  1. Our cells are amazing, the brotherhood and sticking to purpose, in detail, that is expressed by them is amazing and inspiring…no self involved, just get on with life, in this symbiotic flow that offers us much to ponder on about life, including as you have said, how they are affected when the environment is not as it could be, the optimum, that is, when this changes they suffer…this is something we do not get taught, but we should, we would view what we put in our bodies as fuel, be it food or emotions, differently.

  2. our bodies our magnificent keepers of harmony when we allow them to be so, and support it with the utmost care. It is our responsibility to choose a life of healing instead of polluting our bodies with emotions. The body is a truly beautiful mechanism that is trully intelligent.

  3. Our bodies are constantly working to maintain a harmony within it regardless of what comes our way in life. I appreciate that the more I follow how my body feels to be in a situation, more and more I feel steady in the flow of life. Our feelings flow with life whereas the mind can drive a very rigid set ideal of what life should be rather than accepting how it is and what needs to be changed / lived in harmony with the moment.

  4. What is so amazing to feel, is how much better I feel when I bring my full focus to how I take care of my body and act on what it is asking for. The consequences of this simply cannot be denied. Our bodies literally are amazing!

  5. I also appreciate myself for being so open and willing to understand life and make changes if there are changes to be made, which make my inner environment even more delicate and tender. And we deeply appreciate your contribution and tenderness Matts. Thank-you.

  6. Reading this today it felt like the same thing happens in us when we do not express the whole truth, it leads to misunderstandings and complications, it grows a cancer in the world.

  7. Our cells are like our own little soldiers of health inside our body and they work around the clock to keep everything going. How amazing is this with our cells. Super impressive and totally divine.

  8. Yes to bathing our particles in a warm and tender body, I can feel the spacious and expansion when our bodies are in harmony and following a natural order.

  9. What a beautiful understanding of our bodies , our particles we are made of and the universe and how we are all part of this rhythm and flow and the appreciation of this is essential in our lives our health and the universal medicine we all belong to.

  10. My body is constantly surprising me with the level of intricacy of this amazing machine, I long since clocked that as a physical matter, but the energetics are even more amazing the more I understand about it, which in itself is the tip of an iceberg no doubt.

  11. “Just by becoming more aware of how the body actually works, I have become more humble and am treating my body with the utmost care, since it cares for me every day.” there is no doubt that our bodies are truly amazing, they are there to support us, they are there to allow us to express through them yet until I met Serge I thought my body was my weakness, it would get sick, I could not “push through” all the time. today I appreciate my body as my greatest gift.

  12. Our body has the potential to hold an order and flow on the inside, much like the order and flow of the stars, planets and solar systems in the night sky.

  13. The more I appreciate how amazing our bodies are the more I can see the innate intelligence that is within us all – throughout our whole body. Oftentimes we can think of intelligence as being something confined to being in our brain but that just doesn’t make sense to me when you consider the wonder of how our whole body works…

  14. Our bodies are an amazing source of consistency that unfortunately feed human beings who tend to choose inconsistency, because they have a body they can rely upon to support them nonetheless, until it says enough.

  15. Matts this is wonderful. You have made the science of how cancers can start very accessible. You also bring home the message that every one of our cells is important and thus the environment that we keep them in is vital. Taking care of our bodies is then paramount if we want to give our cells the best chance of doing their jobs, and it’s not just about the food and drink we put inside our bodies, but how we think, move and treat ourselves.

  16. I too Matts greatly appreciate what we have all experienced through Universal Medicine courses and really love that I now have in my life all the information I need to do as you share “if I listen and go more gentle with myself, then the cells can bathe in a body that is warm and tender and that feels much more yummy.” To really feel this in the body is so delicious and tangible, it is what we are all craving – love.

  17. Spot on blog that anything that plays out on the outside is the reality of what is going on in the inside. How is that for a call out for responsibility?

  18. The body is remarkable as to how it really does come together and do everything that is designed to be. One thing that I have really been fascinated by is how when we surrender, let go and open up our bodies are extremely responsive to any choice and the quality in how it is going to communicate with you.

  19. “I find the body absolutely extraordinary in the way it functions. Just this morning I was reminded how amazingly it just keeps on doing what it does, regardless of what we do to it, up until the point that it cannot support us any longer.”
    Well said Matts, the body is functioning and mostly as long it functions we are fine with it. I realize that when I use my body in a mere functional way, I miss out and my body does not feel full and vibrant.

  20. My question is what makes a cell change? What comes before that? What Serge Benhayon has presented over the years has answered this…it’s the energy we are in which results in the choices that we make and vice versa. “Everything is energy, which means that everything is because of energy” So it makes sense that our cells, our building blocks, respond to this and then act on this. Our bodies really are incredible instruments. It actually does not make sense then to be self critical or self damning of our bodies at all.

  21. In understanding why things occur to our bodies we have the opportunity to understand that the quality of energy that we live our lives in all ends up in our bodies.

  22. ..’if there is stress and disharmony they might work for a certain amount of time, but eventually the force that is working against the body makes the cells eventually go out of rhythm and form what we then call, in this case, cancer.’ Just in this one line alone lies the answer to how and why we get cancer. We must understand and feel energy first that is running our bodies instead of only looking at the external factors such as the foods we eat. Yes we can look to cut out certain triggers such as ‘cancer feeding’ foods like sugar but it is the energy that has been allowed to run that first and foremost that needs to be addressed in order to heal.

  23. ‘The particles of our body are part of and aligned to the rhythm of the Universe. We are designed to flow in line with the vibration of love that the Universe is made of. It makes sense that when we keep making choices that do not hold that quality our cells and our whole body will suffer.

  24. “Just by becoming more aware of how the body actually works, I have become more humble and am treating my body with the utmost care, since it cares for me every day.” How beautiful Mats and what an inspiring sharing of how we can love and look after our amazing body and all this offers us to live who we truly are.

  25. We have dismissed and overlooked how we care for our bodies way too long, not appreciating that the way we hold, care for and carry ourselves in life can contribute to its health and wellbeing.

  26. I feel quite humble too after reading about the millions and millions of cells in our body and how they know what to do to keep us in good health, which brings a greater understanding of just how important it is that we are loving and tender in all our movements, including the not so visible movements of our thoughts which can be very harsh and destructive. I can feel that self love and self appreciation is what truly nourishes my cells.

  27. When we celebrate the magnitude of how amazing we really are and have this as our every day understanding of who we are, every moment from this place has the same opportunity to be the same. Is that not worth living it for, that by living what we know is true inspires others to live this also.

  28. This is a healthy state, no doubt, none of struggling or chaos of not supporting our cells “By reading this you can almost feel that in its healthy state, the body is at rest with itself, there is a harmony and rhythm in which the body and its cells cooperate and work in a homeostatic, self-sustaining way.” I love this, I can feel in my bones that this harmony makes sense and needs to be where we are heading in terms of our health and how we approach it.

  29. Our physical body is a miracle and deserves to be treated lovingly and with respect; after all, we take it everywhere and are not ever in it, as long as we are alive.

  30. The miracle and amazingness of what the body is and represents is in its unwavering alignment to order and harmony, ie the universal laws and cycles it is part of. Thus the body is the marker of truth for how we as a being are in relationship with the universe. Being in disharmony causes a jarring of some sort that will seek correction as e.g. through illness and disease.

  31. I love the reminder here of how incredible the body is to keep functioning and when one area is depleted it borrows from another to keep going. On a practical level we end up with deficiencies and imbalances, but the body is absolutely committed to functioning. The quality of that functioning depends on how we treat it.

  32. Currently I am doing an anatomy and physiology course, it’s the stuff I learnt at school no different. But through the inspiration of Universal Medicine and the reverence and appreciation for the body that it is given, I am doing this course with a far greater sense of humility. Our bodies work tirelessly to maintain and restore harmony and our choices have a huge role and responsibility in supporting or delaying and denying this process and state of being.

  33. Universal Medicine really does provide an extraordinary overview of what is happening in our bodies… A holistic, complementary, spherical, extraordinarily sagacious understanding of the whole picture not just the individual parts.

  34. It seems we often are in fight with our own bodies yet if we honoured them in full knowing that they “fight” to restore us to harmony, things might be rather different.

  35. I love that our bodies are made up of particles of the universe. It’s obvious when I write this now because everything within the universe is made up of universal particles! But what I love is that when I let myself connect to this beautiful truth, I feel the space of the universe within me and the potential to live in a truly universal way.
