My Friend the Truth

From an early age I learned that it was worth staying with the truth. The truth was always easy to write, say and remember because it was something that really happened as I experienced it and it was locked away forever in the make up of my body.

If I wrote or said something that wasn’t the truth my body would let me know because if I didn’t honour that truth, what came after was a mess and it took so much energy and time to clean it up. Not siding with the truth was like watching a movie that kept you in suspense for the rest of your life, or until it was made true.

I worked for 13 years in law enforcement in a highly stressed environment, participating in many investigations from domestic situations and drug matters to high end vehicle theft. I worked as part of a team and individually, providing evidence at the local, district and coroner’s courts. Among the many things that have stayed constant is the truth and how important it is.

I spoke to people in many situations, including victims, offenders (in interviews), colleagues or members of the public, always having a sense or feeling of where the truth was in what was being said. For me it was just whether I followed that sense or feeling or overrode it for something else.

I spent sleepless nights worrying about situations I was involved in with my body being in a heightened state – I was anxious and my heart was beating really fast. The only thing that would settle me was knowing the facts of what had been done or seen. I would replay the situation and this would confirm to me, through the feeling in my body, that I was operating on the facts and hadn’t added anything or left anything out. It was like I was saying to myself, “yes, this is the truth, this is what you saw or heard and you are only writing about it so you can’t be wrong.” My body would soon confirm to me if I was right in my replay of the event and I would sleep feeling the truth, or my body would continue to race.

I came to learn that the truth is the only thing I could stand on and step from. Anything else would eventually fall away and leave me with nothing. It was the best friend I ever had; I loved how it made me feel.

My friend Serge Benhayon has confirmed to me the feeling I always had about the truth. I always knew the truth was my friend but at times I was too scared to hold onto it. Now I will never walk away from it again – not out of honor, but because of how it feels. Thank you Serge and Universal Medicine; I know you are the truth, not because of what you say but because after all my life experiences my body always tells me so.

  1. Perfect timing, as on waking up this morning my body was asking me to be with the truth I know within my body and to keep it really simple. Reading you blog has been a confirmation of this.

  2. The truth is more than just words or statement – it’s a living braille that our bodies respond to – that feeling of settlement you described is a great indicator that we are on the right track and that the truth has indeed been touched upon.

  3. “I came to learn that the truth is the only thing I could stand on and step from. Anything else would eventually fall away and leave me with nothing. It was the best friend I ever had” When we come to know how truth feels in our bodies, it becomes simple and clear to feel when something is not true.

  4. I am crazy for the truth.
    Just show me the truth, I feel if what you bring is true, my body is very clear to confirm if the truth comes my way.
    Every cell of my body says Yes to what gets shared in the workshops of Universal Medicine. Serge Benhayon does know very Well to connect with the divine. His words are divine music to my body.

  5. The one pointer in my life that worked better than anything else for me was a complete commitment to truth. A complete commitment to love would have also worked.

  6. In expectation of being exposed in what I call today my lies or rather personalized versions of truth that I honestly considered to be the truth, I tended to avoid the truth, a game of hiding in order to hold onto what suited me at the time in the best intention and belief. We lie to ourselves even when we are convinced to be honest or truthful to an extent that is shocking due to the lack of awareness we have allowed or chosen to reduce us by. And here truth shows to be our best friend, it will always reveal and expose the level of unawareness we live and equally confirm the knowing of truth in everything we do, see and experience. Truth is what it is and it doesn´t change what it is, it is our relationship with truth that is either in resistance to or acceptance of it, but in both cases, truth remains to be our best friend.

    1. Yes – our so called personal truths are often lies or variations to the actual truth which stand steady and is consistently the same for everyone – and our journey with truth must naturally begin with unpicking all the untruths we have built our lives upon.

  7. I agree Ray, that sense that we get when know someone is telling the truth and when they are lying is very tangible in our bodies – the only problem is amongst the rush of today’s world is that we dismiss and disregard it all too often.

    1. Yes that is a hazard we can easily get into, rushing and dismissing of what the body is communicating. I can always track back to a feeling of what was true. Often it is a quiet knowing so it is easily dismissed if I am living in a way that is busy and rushing.

  8. When I as a child i always knew that everything we do and say and think will be known by everybody. Like cartoons with written words in the clouds above their heads.
    So more easy to be honest anyway in life, it saves time to re-order your life.

  9. I know this one well from past experiences ‘if I didn’t honour that truth, what came after was a mess and it took so much energy and time to clean it up’ and it is not fun. Your blog got me to reflect on how do I know if something is true or not, especially when we live in a world of lies. My body knows this which is great and a reminder or just how important it is to honour and listen to this.

    1. It is true we are in a world that pretty much thrives on lies, our media is a good example of this. It’s a shocker how far from truth even what we once believed to be reputable news agency like the BBC were, but more and more they are all exposed to have little interest in truth.

  10. Well said Raymond. Truth is freeing. It is healing. And yet it is held as mysterious and ‘unknown’ by so many. Lies abound in this world and when lies can be made a justified and convenient reality to many, your Soul, the truth is the only guide you have in the murky pond of lies and corruption.
