A Letter to Serge Benhayon from Rachel Andras
I have never written a love letter in my life and I’ve never thought about doing so until now, but I feel the time has come and a true love letter is now needed.
History is full of love letters referring to the emotional turmoils of people and their longing for each other, but what I’ve learned from you Serge is that true love is far from being emotional; that it is a living stillness residing inside me as the foundation of my divine essence.
Therefore this is not an ordinary love letter as you are not an ordinary man (even though you are), and it is also not a love letter from me as a woman to you as a man. It is a letter from me as a Son of God and Soul residing in a human female body, knowing that what you bring to this world is far beyond simple human affection, but a dedication to truly serve humanity on our way back to our divine origins.
This letter is also not a letter to you as an individual, but to you in representation of humanity because that is what you represent and where your true love lies.
The love you have shown me is very rare in this world, which makes it extraordinary but at the same time it is the most natural thing.
As a man:
You are the first man I’ve met who did not impose sexually on me as a woman, not even with the slightest thought of it. Not because you are sexually neutral, or not interested in me as a woman, but because your absolute integrity and all–encompassing way gives no space for those thoughts.
What is so amazing is that you do not have to control yourself in any way – this is simply who you are. Many men have this sexual connotation: even if they don’t fancy a woman there is a sexual judgement based on her “market value” as a desirable object or not. We live in a world where women are objectified in all walks of life and where we learn from a very young age to assume certain roles as men and women. Serge, you are breaking down those roles, not by telling people a sophisticated social theory about it, but by inspiring people by the way you live.
As a practitioner:
You are a person who truly supports people whatever their life situation may be and according to what is needed for their growth. The extraordinary aspect of this is that you are not like the expert that we are usually referred to who compartmentalises people – you always take into account the mind, body, spirit, Soul and our divine origins.
It is always about seeing the whole, and specifically the whole of humanity. You do not counsel people for their personal gain, you counsel people to understand their true quality and what they bring to this world. Of course this often means getting personal issues out of the way, but it is always looking at the whole. That’s so exceptional.
What you present:
Everything that you present comes from your lived experience and there is never an imposition or a demand for anyone to act or behave in a certain way or do certain things. You just present facts and people are free to choose what to do with those facts.
You were the first one who presented to me the most basic aspects of human life: that everything is energy and therefore everything is because of energy, and the difference between spirit and Soul. Basic facts I should have been introduced to on my first day of school and been brought up with.
The religion you present is a way of living – The Way of the Livingness – which offers space and time for every single human being to evolve in their own time and at their own pace: it empowers us all to be who we truly are – equal Sons of God.
There is no external or transcendent higher power that makes people feel less, there is no accumulation of riches or assets that only belong to one person or a group of people who are the chosen ones: there is no chosen one, we are all the ones.
As a Philosopher:
You are the first person who presented philosophy as a day-to-day livingness.
We are all philosophers and that is what you live and empower everybody to be – their own philosopher. We can all connect to the Universal Wisdom that is available to everybody.
With you I learned that a true philosopher does not have people who study him or her as a person, and there are no followers of philosophical theories. A true philosopher is dedicated to supporting others to evolve so they become their own philosophers and take responsibility for their own lives. True philosophy is all about our evolution in brotherhood and never about the uplifting of any one individual.
Serge Benhayon you have shown us that philosophy, science and religion are connected, and brought to me the deep understanding that life is always in harmony with all three aspects: philosophy shows us the way to go, science connects it to the reality we live in and religion is how we connect with ourselves and each other and live in true brotherhood.
You are a living example of all those human expressions in their deepest truth and for me the biggest gift and expression of love you have given to me has been for me to understand and fully embrace that I am a Son of God and that I don’t have to better the world, but that I just have to be myself and reflect with my amazing light the divinity we all are and be a guiding light for everybody on our journey back to our divine origins.
With deep Love and Appreciation for all that you bring.

Thank you Rachel, as we get to know more about Serge Benhayon the more that can be written and from what you have shared it could easily expand into a book.
When a teaching is lived, the teacher knows how to not impose because they understand the importance of learning the teaching through experience rather than the head. When the teacher has lived what they present, they also know that it can be difficult for others to grasp to the depth they are presenting and that is why they can give the space and allow the students to make their own steps.
As a man, or as a woman we have social constructs which we abide by. What you have written here is very true that Serge is the first man to not impose with any sexual innuendo, physically, emotionally, or psychologically. It is rare to speak to a man who does not think of you as less or more just because you’re a woman, to stand next to a man who is not governed by the imposed social beliefs – it is truly liberating and perhaps what all of those rebels/protesters crave.
The letter is a beautiful appreciation of such a magnificent human being, ‘It is a letter from me as a Son of God and Soul residing in a human female body, knowing that what you bring to this world is far beyond simple human affection, but a dedication to truly serve humanity on our way back to our divine origins.’
This redefines love and our purpose for being together.
A beautiful expression of appreciation and love of Serge Benhayon and the Divine love that flows through him
to offer humanity a way of return to our shared Divine origin.
True love is very different from emotional love, ‘true love is far from being emotional; that it is a living stillness residing inside me as the foundation of my divine essence.’
This is a very touching love letter, one without need or desire. It is instead full of genuine appreciation, and all that is shared I can completely agree with. The love that Serge Benhayon offers each of us is a lighthouse for mankind, showing us what is possible and the way back from the dark.
Letting go of the want or helpless need to better the world has been a massive weight off my shoulders. I used to ache at the thought of how to save everyone suffering, plus all the animals and trees and nature combined… that’s a LOT to carry around. Through the love of Serge Benhayon and re-discovering this within myself too, I understand life on a completely different level and also understand myself and how to work within what has been created on earth but showing that we are more than the creation itself.
I love how Serge doesn’t give a sophisticated, theory based talk about Love and living a love-filled life. He walks it then talks.
Thank you Rachel, lovely to read this again. This is so true about Serge Benhayon, that he has “a dedication to truly serve humanity on our way back to our divine origins.” Now I have reconnected to my own soul this is something that I feel inspired to do also.
And Serge Benhayon always has 100% integrity, ‘You are the first man I’ve met who did not impose sexually on me as a woman, not even with the slightest thought of it. Not because you are sexually neutral, or not interested in me as a woman, but because your absolute integrity and all–encompassing way gives no space for those thoughts.’
It is so rare to meet a man, a practitioner, a presenter, a philosopher as you describe here, but here we see all these in one person. And that is just on a humanly perceptible level. I just cannot help feeling there’s so much more that we cannot possibly fathom about this man. Are we making the best use of this gift?
This is such a gift that has been given to humanity again
“I’ve learned from you Serge is that true love is far from being emotional; that it is a living stillness residing inside me as the foundation of my divine essence.”
We have not been taught that we are all divine, that there is within us all an essence which if lived from will change us and the world. To me, we as a race of human-beings have tried everything and it clearly hasn’t worked, so why don’t we give our divine essence a chance ? We have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Serge Benhayon is such a gift to humanity, ‘You were the first one who presented to me the most basic aspects of human life: that everything is energy and therefore everything is because of energy, and the difference between spirit and Soul.’
Love the title Rachel, ‘A true love letter to Serge Benhayon’ I have to say through Serge Benhayon I have learnt what true love is and it is nothing I was brought up to believe it was. How amazing it would be if as children we were brought up to know what true love is, and that we all lived by that love.
What I find astonishing is that our true essence is love but the model of society we live within somehow makes sure we don’t know that. We also have a world that is saturated with untrue versions of love ready to take the place of the real thing.
‘You are the first person who presented philosophy as a day-to-day livingness.’ So true Rachel, Serge Benhayon walks his talk, philosophy that when lived allows us to understand so much about love, life and others.
You are a true act to follow Rachel — a natural born lover and leader of philosophy. I too could write a love letter to Serge Benhayon. I share with the world all that I am more and more each day. Every person I meet is a love affair waiting to explode. As you have expressed Rachel – “there is no chosen one, we are all the ones.” And there is no greater joy to share I am The One with others, and greater to that, is when they re-discover they are The One also.
The love Serge Benhayon expresses is unique in that allows to have a true feeling of Divinity. We are immensely fortunate to have such a relationship with the new World Teacher.
I love what you have said here about Serge Behnayon, Rachel…’It is always about seeing the whole, and specifically the whole of humanity. You do not counsel people for their personal gain, you counsel people to understand their true quality and what they bring to this world. Of course this often means getting personal issues out of the way, but it is always looking at the whole. That’s so exceptional.’ This is counselling for evolution, for the whole, for the Love of God and all.
For me one of the most profound things Serge Benhayon presents is on our divine origins. Once we reconnect to that everything is there, the world is temporarily turned upside down as the lie of human life is revealed, however a true divine order is re-established.
Wow Rachel, what you shared here is no rah rah. This is a deep appreciation of what this man brings to humanity. It could easily have been a woman too.
This love for him is in no way sexual, and where the world is at a struggle with the word, LOVE. The love Serge shares is equal for all and is within all of us, when we are ready to see, hear and feel it. – We are a particle of the whole divine..
“Everything that you present comes from your lived experience and there is never an imposition or a demand for anyone to act or behave in a certain way or do certain things.” This sounds so simple and it is, but in this world it is something not understood, as we are so used to letting our head speak with it’s many ideas and thoughts that however rarely have to do with our everyday lived way. If we all just talked our own walk the world would be a far more honest place and with that a huge step, closer towards truth.
Love, “it is a living stillness residing inside me as the foundation of my divine essence.” Serge Benhayon has ignited the spark within me to reconnect to my true essence of love.
Thank you Rachel, you have beautifully encapsulated what Serge Benhayon reflects back to us all – the love that we all are equally so no more or less just the choice to live it consistently no matter what.
Yes, we are all equally love, Serge Benhayon has lived and shared that as a reflection over the years.
” that it (love ) is a living stillness residing inside me as the foundation of my divine essence” this is so beautiful and I love this love letter.
Rachel I love the deep wisdom and appreciation for Serge Benhayon you share in this blog. This line is a beautiful example of true love and a great reminder for us all – ‘ true love is far from being emotional; that it is a living stillness residing inside me as the foundation of my divine essence.’
