What Does Truth Really Mean?

by Eva Rygg, Oslo, Norway

Could it be that we have given up our own natural ability to know and trust truth, and have taken for granted that whatever is being presented or claimed is truth, as long as it is what the mainstream accepts to be the truth?

I know I have been one of those – even though I often had a feeling that there must be more to it than this, I somehow settled with ‘everyone’s’ truth.  Why wouldn’t I, no-one had ever presented otherwise. Not until several years ago, when I came across Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon’s presentations and the esoteric way of life.

The very first thing that I was presented with was to discern my own truth, and to never take on Serge’s presentations as truth without my own innermost discernment – that is, the feelings I have and know deep within myself, the feelings that are just mine and not told or dictated by anyone else. The feelings I have carried all my life, but at a young age had learned to override because I was sure they did not matter, since they were just mine.

Learning to discern and trust my truth again literally became a life-changing experience for me. Back then I was very ill physically, with a condition in my pituitary gland plus several other diagnoses – I was a typical example of the multi-symptomatic person. Choosing not to take heavy duty medications as I was recommended to do for lifelong treatment/support (it all felt too risky with the possible side effects), I learned to cope with life and maintain a facade, barely keeping my head above water.

I had countless different ‘alternative’ treatments during this time, which I felt just took me further and further away from me – I was just desperate to change or fix my situation and better my health.

At the first private session I had with Serge Benhayon I was for the first time seen as me, and not just as the diagnosis and symptoms in my body. The way he met me, and not my condition, made such an impression on me that I cried for the rest of the session. It was such a relief to be met as me, as an equal – but not only that, I could feel that it was a significant meeting. Not until later did I understand to what extent.

For me Love has been understood as something you give and/or receive. Having studied and worked with Serge I learned to understand that Love is something you are.  ‘Integrity’ was just a word until I met Serge Benhayon. Study Serge, and you will find that he talks Love, he walks Love, every move he makes is about Love.

And yes, I know it might sound a bit weird to be Love, but I have learned to experience that it is in fact possible, one gentle step at a time.

That brings me back to my own healing process – and guess what?… Love became my medicine. Slowly my body started to unlock and release the incredible tightness of old emotions etc. Not because Serge loved me to bits (as he does everyone), but because I myself was inspired by the way I was met by Serge and started building Love in and around me by my everyday choices – by discernment and awareness – by standing by my own truth. A huge part of my healing process has been the realisation that as soon as I take responsibility for my own situation (not look or search outwards) things already start to change – and it is not about getting someone to fix me or take my symptoms away, it’s about truly healing from the inside out.

And for those who might wonder… to be loved to bits by Serge, means to be met and seen in every way. He never turns his back on you, every question gets attended to – never wavering from truth no matter how uncomfortable and confronting truth at times may seem. Not until having had this experience did I realise that I had never trusted anyone in my whole life – Serge Benhayon taught me how to trust, by constantly reflecting truth to me, never with judgment or expectations, but always with Love.

My health is today excellent – to the extent that my endocrinologist, with whom I have kept in regular contact during this time, is astonished and wonders how it is that I have recovered this ‘easily’.

I can only say that I am in awe, that I have brought myself back from barely existing, to life in full. And that is thanks to the innermost way of life.

  1. Eva,
    I am discovering that to live from my innermost, whilst feeling so still, steady, strong and true, is not the easiest thing to do consistently. The beauty in honestly feeling this is that I straight away feel a call to a deeper commitment to stay present with my body, so I can feel and respond with consistency from my true feelings, that like you, I have always had, but because they didn’t fit with those around me they were squashed and numbed. It is because of this pattern of holding them back that I now find myself in a place of steadily choosing to no longer hide.

  2. This is beautiful to read Eva and how meeting Serge Benhayon inspired you to make loving choices and turn your life around. Serge Benhayon was also the first person I ever felt met by and it was deeply profound to feel the level of love and integrity this man lived with, a powerful feeling that many, many people have been blessed by.

  3. Thank you Eva for sharing a beautiful and inspiring experience, every time I see or met Serge I am inspired by the great love wisdom and integrity that emanates from his being, this was someone who met me, someone I could completely trust. I have been slowly learning to trust what I am feeling after being told from a young age that feelings were not to be trusted.

  4. We know we are hearing truth when every particle in our body comes alive with a resounding YES to what it is hearing and feeling.

  5. You know, I have known Serge Benhayon for nearly 11 years now and can honestly say he loves me to bits too, just as he loves you and everyone else to bits as well. It’s extraordinary and deeply moving to feel someone love you so much more than you love yourself. And its also a constant source of inspiration to bring that equal love for ourselves.

  6. “The very first thing that I was presented with was to discern my own truth, and to never take on Serge’s presentations as truth without my own innermost discernment – that is, the feelings I have and know deep within myself, the feelings that are just mine and not told or dictated by anyone else.” How can I comment on this when it is so complete however, when I respond with these feelings within I know it’s truth because my body expands.

  7. A great reminder and such a blessing Eva to know you for who you are and not as your symptoms “At the first private session I had with Serge Benhayon I was for the first time seen as me, and not just as the diagnosis and symptoms in my body.” And I love this line as truth too “never wavering from truth no matter how uncomfortable and confronting truth at times may seem.” Inspirational and aspiring !!

  8. There are many words that we all use in our daily lives, such as love, integrity and truth, but do we really understand the true meaning of them? I thought I did until I began to study with Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine and came to see that over the years I had “somehow settled with ‘everyone’s’ truth’ instead of feeling and discerning it for myself. It was from Serge presenting to us to question and discern everything he said and not to simply accept what he shared – which really surprised me initially – that I slowly began to trust what I felt as I finally realised that deep inside I actually had my own ‘truthometer’, all I had to do was make the choice to connect to it.

  9. To accept this truth Eva, if one has kept it at bay… will definitely change the course of a life: “For me Love has been understood as something you give and/or receive. Having studied and worked with Serge I learned to understand that Love is something you are.”
    Thank-you deeply for sharing here. Reading this blog, I feel as though I’ve taken a yet deeper step in the acceptance of the love that I am, and thus, that we all are.

  10. The transformation in your health is a remarkable account Eva, and one the likes of which I’ve not found uncommon amongst students of Universal Medicine. Restoring ourselves to a cardio-centric, or innermost foundation in life opens the door for so much to change in regards to the way we live, and our engagement with life and the world. My own life has transformed also – not from any chronic or serious health condition, yet I wouldn’t hesitate to say that I also was merely ‘existing’ until the inner-spark was once again ignited and I began to again know the love that I am and bring its fullness to the way that I live and engage with others.

  11. Wow Eva for me your healing is like a miracle. With your sharing you showed us that there is an other way to heal and I am wondering what would happen to the illness rate if more people would make such choices in their lives like you have done.

  12. I remember in one of my school reports saying something like Alison is easily led or swayed, and I can see that this was a behaviour that I did throughout my life, accepting what others said and going along with it. It is not that I didn’t know truth, it was that I didn’t want to make waves or cause friction so I made my self lesser by going against what I knew to be true. Learning what truth really means is an ongoing journey for me, as I learn to feel truth rather than accept it or go along with what I think it should be. What I am understanding about myself and which I am sure is true for many is that truth is what we are looking for in our lives, a truth that makes sense of the world we live in.

  13. We are so used to the complications of modern day life that we often fail to see and even distrust the simplicity of truth when it is right in front of us as it just seems too easy. How sad is that….

  14. Eva this was beautiful to read, and I agree that it’s physically very healing to realise we are love in essence and begin to live from this love. As you say “I have brought myself back from barely existing, to life in full. And that is thanks to the innermost way of life.” This is very true for me too – life feels very rich again.

  15. I would have to say that one of the first and most powerful things Serge Benhayon brought to me through Sacred Esoteric Healing was a re-kindling of my inner truth. You get to feel just how wise your body is. You are confirmed in the simple wisdom you know and express and are given permission to acknowledge that inner truth that is not the normal ‘vanilla’ flavored truth we tend to swallow from society.

  16. “always with Love” Serge Benhayon with every move he makes and in every word is Love and showed me the key to rediscover this true Love within me as well. And by feeling the beauty of Love within myself I feel it in others as well.

  17. I reckon society will massively change when we begin to accept that our daily choices do really, without doubt, affect our bodies and the conditions and illnesses we have. Once we accept that every choice we make affects us then perhaps it will be easier to make choices that care for ourselves, rather than harming the body that we simply cannot live without.

  18. ‘Each one of us matters’ has been a mental concept for as long as I can remember. Although a true fact it came from my mind because I did not want to see and feel that I mattered and that I was worth listening to but I also knew that unless I could feel the self worth within me then how could I possibly feel the truth that each one of us mattered. Although I may hold back at times I am learning to not override my feelings and express what I feel to be true. Truth is Love.

  19. ‘I learned to cope with life and maintain a facade, barely keeping my head above water’ This is what so many of us do. Thank you for sharing how love became your medicine and how you ‘started building Love in and around me by my everyday choices – by discernment and awareness – by standing by my own truth’. I see this as beginning to listen to the soul rather than succumbing to the spirit.

  20. How powerful is the medicine of standing by our own truth. You are its amazing living testimony, Eva. Giving ourselves permission to claim truth and love as the very essence of who we truly are, instead of something we seek outside of ourselves, is a life changing choice that is available to all of us.

  21. We as a society seem to be caught in the illusion that what is considered ‘normal’ is what is true. However this could not be further from the truth and what the truth in reality represents. The truth represents who we are in essence, and living in connection to and guided by who we are within what is truly normal, rather than trying to fit it in into an existence that holds us far less than the great love we are within and all deserve to live. What you have shared here of your transformation Eva is so inspirational – thank you. For my life has also changed immensely and continues to enrichen with thanks to the presentations and living way of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine that continue to ask us to discern life and deepen our connection to our truth within.

  22. Gotta love blowing people away by the simplest of choices and the impact they have on our bodies and lifestyle. It’s always such a pleasure to read stories like this that remind us that it is in fact simple and we have direct access at any given moment.

  23. One of the things I have learnt through Serge Benhayon is that I am not my issues or my medical conditions. That has been huge. Since really accepting that those things are all merely symptoms of the way I choose to live, I can safely say that I have no issues in my life, I have nothing to complain about. I make choices that make me feel like crap…often, but I either know why or I get support in understand why and I just learn from it all, no big deal. I no longer wallow in the misery I used to really identify with. God, life is easier this way.

    1. Elodie you have the most gorgeous, raw and honest way of describing things, it’s always a delight for me to read your comments. I must admit I still do a bit of wallowing but I can get myself out of the misery much more quickly using the tools I have learned with Universal Medicine. I agree, life is easier this way, and responsibility for ourselves is a beautiful part of that.

  24. This is such a loving article, I feel the care in every word and in that love and care I feel I am met, the same way that Serge Benhayon met you, you are now meeting your audience. It’s remarkable and it reminds me of how much I lose sight of what is really going on and that every relationship is simply a reflection and another chance to embody more love.

  25. Thank you Eva for a beautiful sharing, I can feel the deep love you have for Serge Benhayon and the truth that he brings through every part of his life and interactions with others; to be met by this love is a reflection of the love that we are.

  26. There is only one truth. It is not mine or yours but ours, for it belongs to Us All. It is absolute in the sense that it does not waver or bend to suit our chosen stance in the world. However, it is our relationship with truth that is more malleable if we do not choose to live it in full and thus suffer the many fluctuations that come with not holding steady to our expression of it.

    1. Love your comment Liane it expresses the meaning of truth beautifully. “not mine or yours but ours, for it belongs to Us All. It is absolute…”The whole truth doesn’t come with any hidden agenda or a need to be believed, it just is.

  27. How do we get educated to discern what is true and what is not true? To what extent does it help to truly discern? Not much. Truth is something capable of stopping a movement, of instantly breaking a momentum, something that produces space and clarity and that stops every attempt to fight it. In truth, truth generates a whole-body response.

  28. We get sold such a dummy, life is difficult, complicated, hard to work out, never fair etc etc and yet here we have a simplicity that in fact has produced results. Life isn’t complicated, only if you make it that way in order to avoid it’s simplicity and in that dedicate to a true deep care of yourself and from there everything else will be pulled to be that same level of care or love. Serge Benhayon walks this way and more and more people are living the same way, their way.

  29. Thank you Eva your appreciation and love for Serge Benhayon is deeply felt in your blog. Serge Benhayon is absolute love and his lived ways inspires and ignites us all to choose this grander version of love too.

  30. Eva what you have described is a testimony for all with health issues.

    We do need to take responsibility of our part and you are so right integrity plays a bigger role than we think.

    It is a matter of what choice we make, it is that simple, we just add the complication and become tangled in it and think the specialists has the answers. It lies within us all.

    Such a inspiring share, thanks Eva.

  31. Eva this was positively beautiful to read. Your description about love and how Serge lives and breathes love brought tears to my eyes; “Study Serge, and you will find that he talks Love, he walks Love, every move he makes is about Love.” Every word you have written is true, and you have inspired me to allow in more of the love I can live and see what happens next with my body and life – thank you.

  32. Thank you Eva for this beautiful sharing on your journey to finding truth.. You share that “love is Medicine” and I couldn’t agree more!

  33. Love is medicine…such a beautiful truth that holds forever the fact that love is who we are, it is simply a matter of connecting to it and then life opens up. When we disconnect from love we experience a completely different reality as life is seemingly a struggle and complicated etc…but what if this is all created by our choice to disconnect to who we are?

  34. Living life being love, rather than spending our days seeking it is a very profound shift that transforms our relationship with life. In a sense it turns us inside out, to a living way where we can be a truly loving presence in our world.

  35. How gorgeous to read about the transformative affects of learning about living the love that you are, inspired by Serge Benhayon and brought as real in to your life, you have awakened the power that is in you – the power to be so loving.

  36. What occurred to me while reading your blog Eva is how we don’t hold ourselves as all we are just as Serge does. We live life as being the symptoms. When we are meet and held as all we are we get a massive reflection which exposes just this. That we have ourselves chosen to live separate to all we are and in this is great sadness.
