Society’s Truth-Tellers Will Always Challenge The Status Quo

by Dianne Trussell, NSW, Australia.

Coming from a long career in university medical and biological research and teaching, and now being free to explore without the limits and pressures of narrowly-focused projects and the quest for funding, I am currently investigating the energetic basis of science, medicine and in fact, everything. If Einstein were around, he could confirm the pre-eminence of energy in every aspect of existence. Just because most of us may perceive everything, including medicine and healing, in purely material terms, doesn’t mean we’re right or have the whole picture. And perhaps by ignoring energy we are missing something important of key relevance to our daily lives. 

Good science is always: “This is our best approximation just now, but what we don’t know is and will always be far more than what we do know, and we have to keep an open mind while we explore.” In fact, some branches of science are way ahead of current medicine. I know: I worked there, did the experiments, contributed to the publications, taught doctors, surgeons and medical students. I try to keep up with advances and sometimes communicate about them with my old colleagues, but the sheer volume of knowledge is too great for any one human or field of study to even skim, let alone understand and integrate.

As part of my investigation of energy (quantum and otherwise) and how it affects us, I have been studying and testing the work of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. So far what I have seen and applied has held up, dove-tailed sensibly with modern science, and been of great benefit to me in my personal life. However recently anonymous detractors have made a stir in the media, and, behaving like Inquisition witch-hunters or Flat-Earthers, have gone on a rampage of lies and persecution against Serge Benhayon and his friends.

Everyone who has ever tried to tell the (uncomfortable) truth in our ‘civilisation’ has been murdered, decapitated, crucified or at least castigated, slandered, shut down or had their funding pulled. Everyone knows at least some examples of this; we learned about them in school and in church. When someone nowadays is treated that way, you have to wonder whether perhaps they might be telling truth that someone (or many someones) don’t want us to hear. It seems to me that it’s in the realms of health, medicine, religion and money that those who benefit most from the status quo have their biggest fear of loss (of control), and thus the most violent reactions to truth.

The media is the willing mouthpiece for those who would keep the status quo, no matter how untruthful it may be. The media looks for the smallest issue with which to attack truth-tellers, and will use bad science, medicine and theology, and even people, to invent the stories they want to broadcast. They contain so little truth and what there is, is distorted, out of context and makes me wonder about those who own the media and what their real agenda is. But they are not alone in this; the pillars of society that want to keep their big share of the world pie are fully behind the media. Sadly, even scientists, doctors and clergymen, whose commitment has traditionally been to truth and to healing, are increasingly falling under the yoke and willingly or not turning against the real needs of the people.

I have directly witnessed in prior and current occasions in a variety of contexts, the propagation by the media of smear campaigns against people I know personally. These people are telling truth (about science, medicine, environment, religion, politics, etc.), and are being harassed and threatened with disgrace, disaffiliation and or shut-down by organisations such as those which control medicine and science in Australia (and overseas). This is personally-witnessed FACT, not conspiracy theory – they don’t want us to hear truth because they don’t want us to have control over our own choices, minds and bodies, for fear that they will lose their control over us.

Note, I personally do not ‘tar with the same brush’ all scientists, doctors, clergymen or journalists, but rather the industries, organisations and governments which pressure them. However all individuals have personal responsibility for what they align to and propagate.

Here is a quote from a random web search, of a 2007 press article in the USA:

“While distorted science is used to promote synthetic chemicals that are extremely dangerous and almost universally ineffective, the same sort of distortion is used to attack anything that could compete with high-profit pharmaceuticals. Bad science is used to attack vitamins, nutrients, and all natural therapies that powerful corporations can’t patent to make real money… 

…With all the scientists and all the money and all the research, we still have no cure for cancer from the world of medicine. Not only that, they have delivered no cures for Alzheimer’s, diabetes, depression, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, heart disease, strokes, dementia, osteoporosis, or kidney disease. In fact, after decades of research and tens of billions of dollars in funding, conventional medicine has cured nothing!

…What have the scientists been doing all this time with all this money? The industry is far more interested in treating and managing disease, because that’s where the profits are found.”

On the subject of the persecution of those who bring new knowledge that challenges the status quo, here’s an excellent modern example that you may not have come across, from a court case in 1954:

Jerome Rodale, a practitioner of the time, had recommended reducing red meat and dairy intake and increasing exercise for preventing heart disease, which at the time was contra the medical profession’s dogma and evoked a violent response from them. However, Commissioner Philip Elman of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) wrote in his dissenting opinion that:

“It is the glory of a free society that a man can write a book contending that the earth is flat, or that the moon is made of green cheese, or that God is dead, without having to ‘substantiate’ or ‘prove’ his claims to the satisfaction of some public official or agency. It is arrogance to presume that in any field of knowledge, whether dealing with health or otherwise, all the answers are now in.” 

And the outcome of the case?

“In the later years of the case, Rodale’s lawyers introduced new testimony from some of the same leading medical experts that the government had originally used at the initial FTC hearings almost 20 years earlier. One by one, these experts refuted their original testimony, claiming they “Didn’t know back then,” and admitted that many of Rodale’s original claims had since become established medical facts.”

THIS PATTERN IS REPEATED over and over in science and medicine – there are vast numbers of examples which follow the same course:

First, the violent rejection of the ideas and the persecution of those who bring them forward.

Then the questioning: “What if it’s true?”.

Then: “Maybe we should look at it because we’re stuck for answers”.

Then: the testing with open minds by people who actually want to find out.

Finally: the change of paradigm when the newly presented idea proves to be of value and is widely accepted.

So with this in mind, how about reserving judgement for a generation or two on those who pioneer new ideas, such as Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine?

  1. Dianne, you have clearly outlined exactly why we need to be discerning and decide for ourselves if something is right for us or not. Even within one organisation there can be contrary beliefs existing so it’s not surprising that the general public becomes confused when trying to rely on the so called experts for guidance. As you have demonstrated, many organisations put self interest ahead of common good and only change their positions when forced to, but even then, are still looking for a way to capitalise on a situation for their own, rather than humanity’s benefit. Universal Medicine is in a rare class of its own here as serving brotherhood and humanity is always paramount.

  2. You’d think that logically that after reacting, going off into a spin only to find yourself right back at the start repeatedly there would be a consideration or possible questioning to go another way. But from experience investment is a huge if not ginormous disease we have yet to address or call it as such.

  3. Dianne I love how you debunk science and make it simple for me to get. The notion that science is different is crazy for the very subject and subject matter is in fact subject to all of the same cycles that we all live within.

  4. It is a sad fact that many of our bright lights in our society are shunned for bringing great advances to man kind.

    What I gather from history is if you are going to be ahead of your time it is essential to be solid in the truths that are presented without the need for acceptance otherwise this leaves a space for great work to crumble.

  5. The shortfall of true intelligence of human kind is not because of a lack of capacity. It is because of allowing emotion to dominate – the need to control that Diane has highlighted is an emotional irrational drive. It creates false intelligence that lacks any open mindedness and focusses on suspicion and fear to influence people on mass. All that can be presented from the ageless wisdom is offerings for people to make choices. Free will is divine, but the tendency to caste suspicion about things you do not understand and fear, certainly is not.

  6. …What have the scientists been doing all this time with all this money? It is a great question, when advocates of reductionist science mark out definitions of what is true science and what is not, but then cannot come up with the answers to many illnesses and diseases that are escalating rather than in decline. The fact we all know is that life style choices that lead to lifestyle illness and disease must be tackled with a broader view to science and it is time that the whole understanding of what science means is opened up and re-imprinted. We have the most amazing scientific instrument that could ever be discovered – our bodies, at our disposal to conduct all sort of research related to healing and wellbeing. It is past time that this was acknowledged and given the respect it deserves.

  7. Hear, hear Dianne. Reserving judgement, looking at new paradigms because we’re stuck for answers and from there testing with an open mind is absolutely the philosophy we need in science. Only vested interest and a lack of responsibility for the bigger picture beyond the self continue to get in the way as greed is consistently placed over true purpose. I love the line ”It is arrogance to presume that in any field of knowledge, whether dealing with health or otherwise, all the answers are now in.”

  8. “When someone nowadays is treated that way, you have to wonder whether perhaps they might be telling truth that someone (or many someones) don’t want us to hear. It seems to me that it’s in the realms of health, medicine, religion and money that those who benefit most from the status quo have their biggest fear of loss (of control), and thus the most violent reactions to truth.” Such a great point Dianne. The saying’ a prophet is without honour in his own country’ is so appropriate here. As we evolve ,new learnings ideas and teachings will inevitably arise. It is those with power who fear they may lose it who will defend the status quo the most.

  9. Sheer brilliance shining at its brightest in this blog Dianne. You have captured the truth here about how science is always lagging behind innovators who are in tune with the future and how the media support “a rampage of lies and persecution” to protect the status quo. What is very exposing is one of your quotes, which highlights how profit sustains illness and disease and resists cures. Many years ago people would treat this as incredulous. These days they would nod and shake their heads. Dianne you lead the way in inspiring true responsibility in speaking out in the name of truth.

  10. great Article Dianne. Through out our time it has been the case that people are always rejected for presenting new ideas, and indeed the persecution was awful. It is still like this today, as soon as someone steps out and really brings out the wisdom that can come from being connected with something more, then they are told to be quiet, or told they are foolish or wrong.

  11. The life and wisdom of Serge Benhayon will be celebrated for centuries to come, as what he brings lays the foundation for humanity’s return to the truly divine nature that is the foundation of all of us.

  12. “Finally: the change of paradigm when the newly presented idea proves to be of value and is widely accepted.” And as we all keep going in circles and there is nothing new and the truth presented by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine has been available for eons in the Ageless Wisdom.

  13. I have no doubt that, in time to come, the teachings of Serge Benhayon will be acknowledged and celebrated.
    Your blogs Dianne provide a wonderful opportunity for people like me to truly understand and appreciate these Ageless Wisdom teachings, thank you.

  14. With status quo being the existing state of affairs in both political and social issues, and with the world going down an economic, social, health and climatic sinkhole, anyone who is able to cast light in the murky shadows of all the manipulation and corruption should be welcomed with open arms… However, it is usually as Dianne says… There will be ridicule, well before understanding and recognition

  15. A very exposing article in which Dianne shares her research and experiences of what has occurred down through the ages, to Society’s Truth tellers. We seem to be masters at delaying our evolution, through belittling and harassing those who bring truth to mankind.

  16. Great points you make here Dianne, and great advice backed by experience, research and history. Rather than settle for. . . “the violent rejection of the ideas and the persecution of those who bring them forward.” . . .” how about reserving judgment for a generation or two on those who pioneer new ideas, such as Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine”

  17. I love the title of this blog. It sums up so much how the truth tellers are often alienated, questioned and pressured into agreeing with the norm. History can keep repeating itself in the ill or we can learn from others experience and how they live as an example for others. The choice is always there.

  18. Wow Dianne I absolutely love what you have written. It seems to be important that the good science knowing should be shared more often as they seem to know the truth about their exploring: “This is our best approximation just now, but what we don’t know is and will always be far more than what we do know, and we have to keep an open mind while we explore.”

  19. Dianne, I am blown away with how you have explained how the truth can be so ignored or dammed and persons persecuted in the process only to find years later that it was the truth all along. I am beginning to realise just how often this has happened in our history which shows me that we are not feeling truth with our bodies but with our heads and are so influenced by what is being said by others at the time rather than feeling it for ourselves.

  20. Amazing blog Dianne. It is worth to stay open to new discoveries even if they are challenging to us. In the end it is the question if we are here to keep it all the same and not be challenged, or to be uncomfortably exposed at times but as a whole of humanity grow out of our age old ill ways?

  21. A real eye opening article Diane. And to consider that “The industry is far more interested in treating and managing disease, because that’s where the profits are found” is quite shocking; businesses making money at the expense of people’s health is so hard to comprehend. It is amazing what the endless pursuit of money does to some people. Meanwhile others, like Serge Benhayon, who are bringing another way of living to the world, are being attacked at every opportunity. Now that just does not make sense!

  22. “Good science is always: “This is our best approximation just now, but what we don’t know is and will always be far more than what we do know, and we have to keep an open mind while we explore.”” And the same applies to Good Medicine.

  23. Thank you for a really great blog Dianne, truth falls in the street when money, profits, and power enter the equation. It is a sad state of affairs when those who bring the truth are abused reviled and lied about but as you point out, over time truth will win out.

  24. It is when we dissect the whole that it is no longer true. And this is what the media has become so good at, in only telling a part of the whole story, and on top of this adding here and there their own interpretations and twists. With that, a picture/story has been created that is far from the truth and misleads the reader/audience tremendously. And we are all part of this game, as we have given up on truth and are content in ourselves with less and in this process crave for stories and entertainment to make up for it. So it is time for every single one of us to reawaken the truth we deep down know and take this as our guiding light and with that bring us back to the truth that we know.

  25. When we accept the fact that we do not know what we do not know, surely we must open ourselves up to whatever new discoveries present with the humility or our ‘new found’ ignorance. We have no idea how much there is to know and therefore how much of what there is to know we don’t know. Being humble is in my experience a wonderful way to live life, open to the newness of the next discovery, unattached from what I thought I knew yesterday. Somehow living this way opens my heart to an entirely different ‘knowingness’ – something I am sure is available to us all – for the price of humbleness.

  26. I would say the proof has to be in what has developed in these people’s lives over the last 10 years. A study of before and after surely has to give an indication of the effectiveness of this way of living. Rather than react and dispute violently, just taking time to see the logic in what Serge Benhayon says makes a whole heaps of sense. What we have to be aware of is, as you so eloquently say “those who benefit most from the status quo have their biggest fear of loss (of control), and thus the most violent reactions to truth.”

  27. Dianne, your quote ‘ …what we don’t know is and will always be far more than what we do know, and we have to keep an open mind while we explore’ on science is so apt and the way to approach all things in life to consider and allow that now we might not know but in future we may know more, and to forever stay humble and willing to see.

  28. That we have, within Dianne Trussell, an extraordinary marriage of wisdom and scientific awareness, of both study and reflection, is a great boon for us all, because it is this marriage that brings forth what we need to sustain and evolve us as a species.

  29. A truly extraordinary piece of writing exposing the corruption by those attempting to control science or the truth for their own ends. The quotes say it all and some humility and curiosity are needed when those willing to propose another possibility stand up and suggest we may have got it wrong….for time may show, as it has done before, that they may be offering a truth we are all craving.

  30. When we complement and balance science with the wisdom of philosophy and the appreciation of our quality connections and true care for one another, it simultaneously nourishes our understanding of the world around us with both the art of learning and art of healing.

  31. This is a fascinating look at what are clearly well-established patterns of behaviour – from the “violent rejection of the ideas and the persecution of those who bring them forward” to the potential setting of a completely new paradigm.
    What is all the more fascinating – if not completely exposing of where we are actually at as the human race (who think ourselves ‘advanced’) – is that such reaction, rejection, vilification, persecution and more continues to this day. Inclusive of a modern-day inquisition via ‘trial by media’ – albeit arms of the media with no intent on presenting the truth whatsoever.

  32. We think ourselves so ‘sensible’ and ‘intelligent’, but what you’ve explored and exposed here Dianne, shows that we are far, far from this. With such behaviour still being our ‘norm’, we are, as a whole, reactionary at best – intensely bound by belief systems that we would rather not be shattered, even when pierced by the light of truth, a light that offers us true liberation. And so it goes…

  33. Great presentation on truth and how it is accepted upon ‘discovery’ and announcement. We should expand on as you have rightly journaled here Dianne how we interact with truth when it is presented. Half the trouble is us owning the truth at the time when it has always been there and stands for everyone not just the individual.

  34. We tend to forget that many have walked before us not afraid to present a deeper truth, that is unmistakeable. For if we do acknowledge this, we are called to be responsible to the very same truth that we know from within.

  35. A great article, one that requires more than one read. The study of human psychology presented here clearly shows why it is that it can take hundreds of years for an irrefutable truth to become an accepted norm. Let’s begin to feel and live what we know innately from within and maybe the time from presentation to acceptance of such truths wil be reduced to one life time, or even less.

  36. It can be difficult to see repeating patterns either on an individual level or the collective (humanity) level. But when we take a moment to step back and widen our view, we are able to observe what is going on and expose it for what it is. Those who are still too close to see the big picture might well argue against it. Some will be curious and take a step back too – either way it’s a choice, and one everyone is free to make without being judged, attacked, vilified etc. by others.

  37. It is true Dianne we are too quick to judge anything that may upset the apple cart or the status quo. What Serge Benhayon has brought through is resisted by many because it exposes the lie we are all living . We are quick to react to anything that does not fit in with the comfortable lives we have created and want to protect.

  38. In fact it is ridiculous that we let us dictate that what is truth and in that dismiss the love that lives in us, the love that is not only but truth and actually should be our go to guide instead. The question is now how long will we give power to these institutions as they do not deliver us that what we truly need. Could it be that in some way we are actually asking for the truth to not be disclosed instead?

  39. “Everyone who has ever tried to tell the (uncomfortable) truth in our ‘civilisation’ has been murdered, decapitated, crucified or at least castigated, slandered, shut down or had their funding pulled. Everyone knows at least some examples of this; we learned about them in school and in church. When someone nowadays is treated that way, you have to wonder whether perhaps they might be telling truth that someone (or many someones) don’t want us to hear. It seems to me that it’s in the realms of health, medicine, religion and money that those who benefit most from the status quo have their biggest fear of loss (of control), and thus the most violent reactions to truth.” This is so true – i have seen at first hand how people are chastised when we make a huge difference in our workplaces, bringing truth can challenge others, yet its badly needed.
    In history those who dare to speak out eventually get seen for the awesome service they actually offer and not the deep abuse and suffering they underwent while delivering it.

  40. “When someone nowadays is treated that way, you have to wonder whether perhaps they might be telling truth that someone (or many someones) don’t want us to hear.” Ah yes. I have noticed this in my everyday life. When someone brings something to my attention that needs to change… and I don’t feel ready to change it things can get ugly very quickly. It’s a case of shoot the messenger.

    If I let go of the judgments I hold towards myself and approach life from the standpoint of a student I can appreciate the wisdom that is shared with me.

  41. Yes how about reserving judgement for those, like Serge Benhayon, who share their light, love, truth and wisdom.
    Your blog, Dianne, is such a joy to read; it provides so much knowledge and wisdom which I very much appreciate, thank you.

  42. It is so extraordinarily refreshing to read about… Good science and… bad science … We are so conditioned that we so really look below the surface and see what is the actual energy coming through the press releases and media… Please keep writing Dianne the world needs to hear this.

  43. The attitude and culture you describe here of certain industries and professions are utterly disgraceful. The science and the media – we would have thought that those who engage in these industry would be at least interested in, if not keenly searching for, the truth. How greed and the desire for control and self-gain gets in the way is just astonishing. Having said that, on a personal level, we too are sometimes resistant to a new idea even though it smells of a potential to be true, stubbornly wanting to stick to the way we are so used to, because it would rock our comfort boat and mean that we need to bring a change.

  44. Those who speak the truth have historically rocked the status quo, and it seems that this continues to this day, ‘Everyone who has ever tried to tell the (uncomfortable) truth in our ‘civilisation’ has been murdered, decapitated, crucified or at least castigated, slandered, shut down or had their funding pulled.’ Yet, truth is the way forward and what in truth we all crave.

  45. Reading this is in many ways shocking – we think or at least I did think we lived in an open and enlightened era, yet more and more I am coming to understand we are fed what to think, what is accepted and if we dare step outside those boundaries all hell breaks loose, and you list many examples here. It really is about keeping an open mind and being humble about what we do not know.

  46. i have seen the evidence shift and change so many times in science for various things, a great example being modern dietary guidelines- its clear the people who generate these guidelines don’t come from a solid platform with which to know what is truly good advice or what is not. I do find myself questioning what we are told, especially as much of it is contradictory. What does make sense unfailing is what i have been presented by Universal Medicine. Life is a science we have to unfold for ourselves, be our own litmus paper to test for ourselves the truth of what is presented.

  47. The very fact that a scientist experienced in medical research, along with many other aspect of science can understand with ease that which Serge Benhayon teaches is mighty strong evidence that what he presents is how it is. All it takes is a willingness to open ones mind and heart to feel this and understand it for our selves. Or if it is needed, wait until one is so ill that the last resort will be to consider the Ageless Wisdom and its connection to and with our body.

  48. “you have to wonder whether perhaps they might be telling truth that someone (or many someones) don’t want us to hear.” Those with a vested financial interest in sticking with the status quo can be very resistant to asking ‘What if it’s true?’

  49. I agree Dianne, it would be very wise to reserve judgement for a generation or two on those who pioneer new ideas, such as Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine or else one may find themselves marked in history as quite the fool.

  50. We like to think of ourselves as a society that no longer has inquisitions, but as is shown in the story of Serge Benhayon and the many who choose to live the Way of the Livingness, they are alive and well, using the internet as their tool of hate.

  51. An article I found extremely interesting and we are moving further and further into a model where money is the decider on many things. We are the consumer level are often caught by the hype around something and not truly testing it. Many things in the current business world are produced in a way that is geared towards how much money they make and why wouldn’t things that are there to ‘treat’ us be the same. We don’t often look clearly at history like this article explores and from what I am seeing there is a reason and that is to keep us blind. Open up to reading and looking more at what has past and you will see that what goes on currently is just a 2017 version of what has possibly more obviously physically violently occurred in the past.

  52. Dianne this blog is strong stuff, dynamite in fact. As you say it has been going on for centuries, anyone realising the truth about anything and speaking up almost always gets their reputation destroyed and of course many have been killed for bringing the truth. Life on Earth is an illusion controlled by a plane of life we don’t even admit exists. We cling to a belief that we are 3 dimensional physical beings full stop when numerous teachers have shown us that we are far more than this. The way of human life that we have supported as the status quo with its insistence on the individual being everything as opposed to realising that we are all one, is unsustainable going forward and we will soon have no choice but to scrap the worship of individualisation and start to embrace collaboration, co-operation and working together as one.

  53. Thank you Dianne, your final sentences on the process of reacting to and then accepting something new sums up the delay we have to truly progress ourselves and society.

  54. It’s true. It is not expressing truth that we fear but the attacks that will come our way when we voice what is true in a world where we, its people, have created an entire reality based on a lie. Thus, there is a lot at stake for those heavily invested in this said creation when one movement made in truth can rattle such false pillars and bring them to the ground.
