Wisdom that Cannot be Owned

by Simon Voysey, Australia

In my studies with Universal Medicine, I have heard many times that the information presented there comes from a wisdom that cannot be owned by anyone, is ageless, and arises at times when humanity is in great need. Furthermore, it is equally applicable and useful to all.

Taking this as a truth to explore has allowed me to share this wisdom in practical ways with many people with whom I have never before felt the need to discuss Universal Medicine, Serge Benhayon or any Esoteric concept, phrase or terminology. The truth is, it lives within me, to the extent that I choose and allow it.

Examples of this ‘sharing’:

~ With my yoga, fitness and remedial therapy clients, with whom I now enjoy being, looking into their eyes, seeing and feeling their joys and sorrows and how that touches me. I have noticed how this also touches them, and how much honesty has come into our relationship. I have come to recognise this connection and honesty as the greatest form of self-healing and wellness, beyond any philosophy, training or healing technique.

~ With my school students, some of whom see me as who I am, not as ‘a teacher’ and have allowed me the precious experience of seeing who they truly are. There is no more nourishing and inspiring learning environment than when this mutual respect occurs.

~ With members of my family, from whom I had been estranged in the past, in particular my older brother who decided to try one of my exercise classes and without any discussion of the philosophy behind the practices, is stating he is beginning to ‘get it’. He is appreciating the importance of allowing himself to ‘just be’ with his body and explore movement from that connection.

~ With my wife, who was my partner for eleven years before we decided to marry, four years after commencing studying with Universal Medicine. Before this I never understood commitment, to myself or another, as simply a commitment to love. I never understood love, even though I preached it as a yoga teacher. I now look at my wife and simply feel love emanating out of me, without any trying or need for it to be returned. How truly awesome! Plus, this is beginning to occur with more and more people, sometimes even strangers!

~ With my outlook on life I am feeling ‘me’ in life and what can be offered rather than what can be gained. I am honouring the choice to be ‘me’ in more moments. Sometimes this is difficult, because I feel how much so many people are choosing to not be themselves. However, remaining true to myself presents a choice to them that on some level they are aware of. This is a gift that needs not be acknowledged or opened.

  1. Indeed true wisdom is universal and so is equally applicable and supportive of all, taking everyone and everything into consideration. It is there for us in times of great need as well as all the moments in between, no matter how seemingly small or insignificant, for every moment counts.

  2. Lovely blog and I agree there is nothing more yummy than having that true connection to ourselves which allows us to truly connect to others – for how can you connect to anyone else if you are not there in the first place.

  3. These words jumped out at me today: “With my outlook on life I am feeling ‘me’ in life and what can be offered rather than what can be gained.” What a beautifully refreshing outlook on life, not one that is lived by many, but one that if lived by all would change the world as we know it. This wisdom is definitely coming with me as I step out into my day.

  4. “simply feel love emanating out of me, without any trying or need for it to be returned. How truly awesome!” The Divine wisdom of feeling and sharing the love that is naturally within us all.

  5. “I have come to recognise this connection and honesty as the greatest form of self-healing and wellness, beyond any philosophy, training or healing technique.” – yes, I experience the same, for myself, with my family and friends, clients and strangers just the same. In being met everyone can feel being seen and cherished for who they are in their essence beyond the hurts, issues, struggles and other things we have taken on. Being seen and confirmed in who we are is pure healing.

  6. Gorgeous sharing Simon. I also have discovered that there is a depth of wisdom within me, and us all, that is waiting to be explored and lived throughout our lives. Developing a loving relationship with my body has allowed me to connect to and honor the love, the tenderness, the truth of who I am in essence. As such my life has transformed bringing the richness of a wisdom that represents us all, to all that I do and live and the relationships I share, as best I can. I now understand that when we are truly being ourselves, we are guided by our wisdom within and can express through our lives the truth in honor of who we all are. This then allows an openness to learn, grown, confirm each other and evolve together, for in-truth this wisdom is one we all deeply know and long to live again.

  7. “With my outlook on life I am feeling ‘me’ in life and what can be offered rather than what can be gained. ”

    This is so well put, the way I used to live was all about what I could get out of life, what it would give to me. Now I am always looking at what I have to offer and in what quality I am offering it.

  8. ” With my outlook on life I am feeling ‘me’ in life and what can be offered rather than what can be gained. I am honouring the choice to be ‘me’ in more moments. ” I too love this line, even though it is all about me, it is in the being me, that brings the offering to all others.

  9. We are so much accustomed to look positively to the owning of knowledge since it helps us to deal with the feeling of anxiousness of life. Wisdom belongs to a movement that is not an answer to an emotion but a walk towards the future. It belongs to all equally.

  10. When we truly live something and it works for us it is quite natural to share it with other. And already by the fact that we are living it we inherently reflect it to others.

  11. What is really lovely for me is to read this article which is authored by someone I don’t know but to see how they are living in the world somewhere. It’s refreshing to read this and know that somewhere there is someone willing to live like this which obviously is touching many many others. I love knowing this is feels like we can trust that there are people out there who have our backs in this way. What the world would be if this was the practice from us all, maybe if people like this keep going this one day will be the norm.

  12. It’s so true, that there is no need to discuss organisations,use certain language or name drop to express our truth. In a nutshell, it is not our truth if we feel the need to justify our ‘beliefs’. When we are connected to who we are with no need for anything in return, we magically and effortlessly emanate that knowing out to everyone. Who chooses to align and realise they too can choose to just be themselves, is up to the individual.

  13. I always used to feel that wisdom cannot be owned by one as it belongs to all, but all around me I could see people claiming it for themselves. To be presented the Ageless Wisdom by Serge Benhayon has confirmed what I had felt; wisdom is not mine to own. In fact, we all have connection to this wisdom, it is always available and waiting to be lived once again.

  14. I love what you have shared here Simon and the examples of who you lovingly shared your wisdom with – it is so true the wisdom belongs to everyone.

  15. I love your words of wisdom here Simon, “The truth is, it lives within me, to the extent that I choose and allow it.” It is always our choice to connect with our true inner wisdom or not and through living a quality of connection with ourselves offers us access to this innate part of us.

  16. Thank you Simon, being ourselves in our day to day is the only way to talk what we walk. It is unimposing. I have experienced that with Universal Medicine more than any other organisation. Serge Benhayon clearly lives in a way that shares a level of lived love that means we are all held equally and inspired to do the same.

  17. A wisdom that cannot be owned is a great threat to the intellect that has made itself the seat of human intelligence by way of its refusal to be a part of the something far greater that it belongs to.

  18. What you bring to our awareness is the level of conscious presence of who we are. And that even we belong to this wisdom – we are not the owners. Let us express from this simple truth and arise. To this wisdom that innately is in us.

  19. Awesome Simon – life can indeed seem overwhelming many times but when we make the decision that we want to get things straight, truly straight, we can then lead the way for so many others that might be caught up in the mess in this world.
