Reality, Truth and Serge Benhayon

Inspired by an article from Simon Asquith where he wrote that:

The hardest thing to deal with in the world is that we create our own reality,” I started to ponder on ‘our’ reality and ask the question, “What is it that we find so hard to deal with?”

So what is in fact ‘Reality’?

‘Reality’ can be so different between people and time. In our past it was reality for us that our world is flat, or that planet Earth is the centre of the Universe.

For some of us it was and is reality to feel (or be treated) better or less than others because of so called culture, skin colour, appearances, being so-called intelligent or having money or status.

  • For a woman in the 19th century her reality was quite different to now (21st century) – be it the right to vote, the type of work on offer, to be seen as attractive or just the possibility to wear trousers.
  • Or as a black person in America it is a quite different reality living in 1800, 1900 or in 2016.

Living at the same time or in the same house, the perceived realities differ enormously. For some it is reality to be in poverty and for others it is to live in abundance. You can also ask my husband – his view of situations, his ‘reality’, often has a large deviation from mine …

So we are living in different ‘realities’ depending on centuries, where and with whom we live, our position, what mood we are in and our point of view.

That our world is a spherical planet and not a flat disc is a truth, and it did become a reality for us in due course. The Greek philosopher Pythagoras for example, had the realisation of the world being a globe over 2000 years ago and this truth eventually became a ‘reality’ for the masses in the 16th century by Magellan sailing around the world, so proving the fact – over 1500 years later! Prior to Magellan for most of the people the flat world was a reality as this ‘fact’ was taught in schools and what we saw with our own eyes when we looked around.

However Pythagoras and his students lived on the same, flat world – but did look deeper, or beyond it, as it seems. So it looks like that truth is something that we discover by and by, and reality is what we create until the realisation takes place – or till we get proved via what others did realise ahead of the masses. For example, we did find out that the world we live in is a globe – but until then, we lived in a reality we created, like ‘the world is flat’.

We create as a society, as a group, and as an individual, our own reality, often involving others into that perceived reality.

As an example: growing up, my perception of ‘reality’ in regards to my family members has changed dramatically. As a child I sometimes suffered under the tense situation in my home and I was sure that it was my father who was the cause for all the disagreements and trouble.

Later, as a young adult completing a Psychotherapy Degree, I became sure my mother was to blame for all the family disagreements and trouble. And again later I felt certain that, if just my husband would change a bit here and there, my world would be much greater.

From growing up, learning, completing education courses and through my everyday living experiences, I changed my reality quite often but some things, some habits and beliefs did stay, like looking for someone else to blame.

Until I met Serge Benhayon… and through attending his presentations I started to consider the possibility that I am the one who created all my troubles and that what happens in my life is of my own making.

To learn that I am responsible for everything in my life – this ‘possibility’ is such a firecracker to me. Even after 10 years of dealing with and learning to accept responsibility of my choices, I am still not ready to live it in full.

But let us be honest and ‘real’ – if we create our own reality (what we do), our relationships, the choices we make, then everything that happens in our life is our own responsibility.

And sometimes nearly the whole of mankind is involved in a so-created reality – like ‘the world is flat’. However, my responsibility to feel the truth of a reality does not become less just because others believe a ‘reality’ as their truth. If we all would stay with the current view of reality – we would have no development.

It needs people like Pythagoras who speak up and present another way, people who challenge our ‘normal’. People who illuminate to us the way to the truth. For me, Serge Benhayon is such a human. He comes along and shows us another way, presents us a true way of living – and what is it that we do? We react.

“I am quite comfortable in my own little reality of what is normal, and don’t think I need to change – I don’t want to ‘rock my boat’.”

However, with everyone who starts bringing (or accepting) more truth into his/her life, my boat starts rocking, I can tell you!

To get exposed to how much I did create my reality that suited me is devastating. I have to look in a mirror and see all my choices which brought me to where I am right now and see what my choices have done to others, to us all.

In a figurative sense, would I have been one who supported the idea of ‘the world is flat’ and we are ‘the Centre of the Universe’? And if so, am I not in the same way responsible for everyone who was sentenced, suppressed, abused or even killed because they presented something else than the commonly accepted – even though I never met them personally?

I am responsible for my choices, for what I accept as truth and for what we as a society accept as ‘normal’ in our (created) world. By creating ‘reality’ I am responsible for everything that is going on in this world and what happens to every single one of us. I am responsible for every point where we do not have living truth, but believe in a created reality which is a bastardisation of truth.

This is what we get as a reflection by a man who is just living in full integrity: where we are at with our responsibility. And now I have a choice:I can ‘kill the messenger’, try to kill or neglect the reflection I’ve got and so try to avoid to feel and take my responsibility in life and on earth – but in fact I can’t really get rid of it.

The world will not become flat just because I think so and invest in it. By fighting against the truth that is presented by one or a few I just delay that it becomes a reality for us all – but truth finds it way, always, sooner or later.

I have started to be very thankful for the reflections I now have in my life – not just the reflection I get from the way Serge Benhayon lives, but also, through the reflections of my family and friends who are choosing a responsible way of living.

I am starting to see that to live in truth is connecting us as one again.

In the past by everyone living in their ‘own’ reality we lived as individuals, separated from each other.I am starting to see the beauty and grace in becoming exposed in my creations, challenged in ‘my reality’ (as long it comes with love and understanding) – becoming a reflection of truth to others.

840 thoughts on “Reality, Truth and Serge Benhayon

  1. It simply doesn’t make sense that ‘everyone has their own truth’, a phrase often used in spirituality, psychology and sociological theory… it makes more sense to say everyone has their own perception, or in other words their own reinterpretation of truth. To hear Serge Benhayon present on Truth being one-unifying, and the same for all was deeply confirming and life-changing all in one. … and Truth is not about dogma, and not even about right and wrong, but rather an equally uplifting platform upon which we build to the next understanding of Truth, and this is something we are here to do and learn together, and to all know equally … this finally is beginning to make sense..

    1. Thank you Annie. It makes a lot of sense to differentiate truth from perception. It seems the word truth has lost its true meaning like many other words and by bringing it back to basics , as it were, we can begin to understand what is actually going on.

    2. True Annie. ‘Everyone has their own reality’ would get it to the heart as we are united in truth but separate us with self-created reality. It is a bit tricky as well as we bring in truth different views on the one truth and just together we can see the whole picture. It is an art to understand and take the expression of truth from another not as ‘something else’ or different, but see the same quality and truth in it and that it is an extension of my own view on the truth. This way of understanding and building together let us expand and it is always uniting us all in its expression.

    3. Annie I agree with you it’s odd isn’t it we all come in the same way and we all go out the same way but in between these two points life is unequal for most people and equality between people really annoys me that there can be for instance such a disparity between the have and the have not’s and this alone brings disagreement and huge separation. I have also noticed that education is a great divider too having a piece of paper that says you can regurgitate formulas or whatever takes precedence over someone who has experience. We seem to live in a society that champions separation to one another and fosters competition.

  2. You write about your realisation that “I am the one who created all my troubles and that what happens in my life is of my own making”. I have found that to be very true, thanks to the teachings of Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon, and out went any remnants of victimhood or feeling hard done by. Those sentiments did for a while still rear their head but the truth is that we do indeed create our reality and that our everyday life is the outcome and result of all the choices we have ever made.

  3. Understanding the dynamics between reality and truth is very useful. It is clear that we create the reality we live in and we see it as being so natural (how can be otherwise if we created it in the first place?) that we try to convince others that this is it. This view confirms our way of acting and this is when we clash we another one that has done exactly the same. We can remain there trying hard to impose our view, that according to us is ‘better’ that others on offer. The point is that unless you have to force or the subtility to make others submit to your views this is a dead end. And if we have either the force or the subtitlity to make it happen, we have to spend all our life making sure that people stay there. A brutal waste of time and energy. Truth provides the only way out only if we accept truth to be “a reached point that unites all and thus lays to rest any argument that will separate human beings” Serge Benhayon. Truth brings two scenarios: either we feel it to the bone, we can feel how the body surrenders to it and then we go there or we feel it to the bone, we do not accept surrendering to it and we fight it with all our might for the rest of our days.

    1. You are right Eduardo and the beauty is, even when we fight the truth – it will not change or go away. It is there to re-connect to it when we are ready. What I love so much on Serge Benahyon and Universal Medicine is how they support us in in this re-connecting, in becoming ready.

  4. I too also found it was such a revelation that we create our own reality and that it is simply the result of the previous choices that I have made in my life. This was very exposing but at the same time felt very empowering to know that by taking responsibility of how I choose to live and treat my body I am in-charge of the quality of experiences in my life.

    1. Exposing but empowering.. very true Francisco. To know that we don’t have mastery or control over anything except our choices of how we are and how we live totally turns things around and puts the responsibility on us to sort our own stuff out, before looking outside of ourselves.

  5. The possibility we create our own reality is very revealing of our human nature it seems… we only see what we want to see and not until such time as our circumstances require it, are we prepared to see more. Serge Benhayon definitely introduced me to a whole new world of ‘seeing’, but only once I was in such a desperate state looking for answers that would solve my dilemmas was I prepared to see what else was there to be seen.

  6. You know what it is so refreshing to read someone saying ‘Even after 10 years of dealing with and learning to accept responsibility of my choices, I am still not ready to live it in full.” So often we pretend yes I am ready do do that or this, when the truth is we are not ready to make those choices yet, for me this is way much more honest, truthful and real, it at least allows us to feel where we are at, connects us more to people, and creates less anxiety in our body.

  7. “So it looks like that truth is something that we discover by and by, and reality is what we create until the realisation takes place – or till we get proved via what others did realise ahead of the masses.” I agree Sandra, when we are willing to be honest and seek the truth we realise that what we perceive as our reality is very different from what is true. In connecting and feeling from my body to truly discern the truth it enables me to accept responsibility and make different choices.

  8. Life trains us and invites us constantly to have our own take on life. It does not invite us to make use of our natural abilities to produce and surrender to truth “a reached point that unites all and thus lays to rest any argument that will separate human beings”.

    1. It is interesting that you use the word ‘surrender to the truth’ for that is all we need to do. I used to think that I had to attain truth and knowledge but now know it is all deep within I just have to surrender to it and it is there – the tricky thing is taking the mind out of the way as it wants to own the information rather than see it as being there for everyone, equally so.

  9. “The hardest thing to deal with in the world is that we create our own reality,” It is hard because it means we have created all the ‘bad’ things that have happened to us and this is something most of us do not want to look at, let alone accept. We want to play the victim mode, rather than addressing the way we have been living. We want to blame another, but why? What is it about us that makes us want to do this? Could it be that we knew all along the choices we were making but overrode them anyway and now get upset that we have to face the consequences? I know this has been the case for me. So we now have a choice to end the sulking and be the amazing love we are or not – its thats simple really!

  10. Often we talk about getting ‘real’ – yet as you so beautifully ask Sandra, just how real is this real, really? We can be honest and open but if we still buy into ideas of us that we have been told and not felt, we can sew ourselves into a prison of our own making. How liberating then to unpick all thats fake and become free to see that we are actually great.

  11. “To get exposed to how much I did create my reality that suited me is devastating.”
    The processing of, and admitting, that we are not who we think we are but an amalgamation of constructed pictures requires an openness to the fact that life might not be what we thought it was.

    1. Maybe its time to bring a different view to ‘unsettlement’ – its maybe a very good state of being where we are not longer in the illusion of self-made creations and constructed pictures. And I agree – it opens up again, whereby we are quite closed when we think we know how it is.

  12. This is a great blog and has made me really ponder on the reality we create, ‘For example, we did find out that the world we live in is a globe – but until then, we lived in a reality we created, like ‘the world is flat’. This reality becomes so fixed that when someone comes along and bursts the bubble, so to speak, and brings a truth, our reaction equals the force of that stubbornly long held reality.

    1. In this there is a great learning for me Susan. To be open for more truth to find out and not hold on to safety, old assumptions and believes. As well as to not blame or attack the one who is inspiring me to another level of truth to understand and bring into my life as a reality. We have the tendency to like and hang on to our bubbles as they give us a feeling of control and safety, but in fact they separate us from each other. It is an art and a choice to see what comes with the burst as well, what the burst brings: more union again, a deeper connection to truth, a wider view, more understanding. And to be honest to myself: it would not be necessary to burst my bubble if I would not have created it in the first place. So it is a question of taking responsibility here for my own creations.

      1. It’s true, the bubbles are created by us to hold ourselves in a falsely created reality, one that gives us something back, be it in safety, comfort even numbness…. and I like what you say about feeling the burst it brings for in that very moment there is an opportunity to see it for what it is.

  13. Sandra what you say here is a reality for me 🙂
    “It needs people like Pythagoras who speak up and present another way, people who challenge our ‘normal’. People who illuminate to us the way to the truth. For me, Serge Benhayon is such a human. He comes along and shows us another way, presents us a true way of living – and what is it that we do? We react.”
    And of course we react because Serge Benhayon rocks our comfortable way of life, and for many that is totally unacceptable. But having decided to try this ‘truer way of living’ as all the ‘other ways’ had failed me
    I can honestly say that the hard work I have done on my self has paid off and my life is very simple and I actually enjoy it. There is a truer way of living and it does in fact work and for those of us who have taken this path we are the walking, talking examples of this truth.

  14. Without Serge Benhayon, and his teaching of the Ancient Wisdom so many of us would still be in the dark about life and our responsibility to ourselves to live it to the best of our ability. Knowing that we are responsible for our own decisions and can only blame ourselves for the decisions we make. Life is so much more than most of us think it is, it is about our {humanities } evolution !

  15. What happens if we don’t all have different realities – what happens that no matter how much they vary from person to person, husband to wife, parent to child, friend to friend – that they are all in fact one and the same, in separation to God. For we are only with him or against him. There is only one choice to make and we can only say yes. For if it is not a yes to God, then it is a yes to everything else that is not.

    1. I agree, if it is not a YES to God than it is a YES to ‘something else’ and we created this ‘something else’. Interesting to understand more and more how our creations turn against us and we suffer under our own creations. What makes totally sense because we are Gods children and so everything what is created against God is also against us.

  16. Incredible blog Sandra, you beautifully expose our own creation and offer the deep beauty that lay before us when we lay this to rest. We become evolution itself, and offer nothing less to the many we reflect to.

  17. Learning, or becoming more aware of when we are fighting and resisting truth, it is plain to see we have so many ploys and behaviours, so many complications we will choose to avoid that truth on offer to us. But we are only fooling ourselves, at our own expense. And the sooner we start to look at our investments in the status quo, what we trying to protect, and how it is truly harming ourselves and everyone else, the sooner we will gladly relinquish the ill behaviours that keep us incarcerated in a lesser, false version of ourselves and step into the freedom of our true light.

  18. We can create and build up our reality to help us feel safe and comfortable in the world. But when we do so it is as though we are trying to shield or protect ourselves from the truth of the world. Do we really want to see the truth? Or will we not like what we see? If it is the latter, creating your own reality makes life a lot more palatable – but only in the short term and only for yourself.

    1. I like the word you use here Nikki: palatable. Yes, we make (create) our lives palatable – but it is very hard – if not truly impossible – to digest. All creations on our own, separated from the divinity/truth, will and do already stick in our throat and so our expression is impaired and unclear.

  19. Sandra I had a similar experience to you that until I met Serge Benhayon I was creating all my own troubles but blaming anyone and everyone for my woes, I was the victim of life!
    To learn that actually I am responsible for all my choices, was a big wake up call because then I had to feel into what choices I had been making and if I wanted to change my life then I had better start making some different choices. I’m always unfolding more of what I have hidden away not wanting to look at brushing it all aside to look at another day and the biggest thing for me is to be responsible. There is a part of me that wants someone else to be responsible or take care of me, and when I feel into this it has a distinct flavour of some religious doctrine from a past life that is still playing out in this life.

    1. That makes sense Mary, as the main ‘religions’ are all more or less offering a ‘taking care of you’ if you do right and you will end up in Heaven or Nirvana as a reward. But this idea of ‘an end’ is an illusion. We have a job forever and this is to live responsibility and evolve, or: E X P A N D. And it is great to track down this part in us, which likes to be tricked and to speak out about it. This is the first step out of it, a step towards truth.

  20. Serge Benhayon has turned many – or most – of my believed realities inside out. A reality that there was nothing I could do to change the sorry state of ‘the real world’ but the truth is; there is a way to change the world and that is the way I choose to live; the more I choose to live love, the more love there is in the world.

    1. Exactly – that’s why I say, we will discover truth by and by…by letting go and clearing out the realities we’ve created. When we open up and make space to see – the truth is already there – waiting for us to be seen (and accepted) again.

  21. So many great points Sandra. You write: “So it looks like that truth is something that we discover by and by” – it occurs to me that at essence we ALL know the truth but get caught up in or contaminated by or chose untruths along the way so we could say truth is something we rediscover rather than discover.

    1. This is a great point as it brings in and points out the responsibility we carry about the realities we’ve created, but also how simple it can be to rediscover truth – just reconnect to our all knowing. A knowing that is in our bodies. Therefor we have to use our true intelligence or ‘whole body intelligence’ instead of only our mind. There is great video-interview about this topic here: http://sergebenhayon.tv/episodes/whole-body-intelligence/

  22. “The hardest thing to deal with in the world is that we create our own reality,” and the fact that this reality is changeable depending on how aware or how open we are to be aware of what’s going on around us. I can say I am aware of what reality is as I sit here but at the same time I need to say that I can sit in that part of reality or be open to it changing again in the next step or minute. What I am saying is that the world around us is changing as we can see but what we see isn’t dependant on what the world is doing but is dependant on our awareness. The moment you choose to be more aware reality is shifted and the whole world changes in your view. Reality isn’t a set thing like we imagine it to be, reality is flexible and you can hold onto it or allow it to shift in front of your eyes as is needed. We don’t get reality, we create it.

    1. Very very good point and good to read and hear: Reality is flexible! And we create it. That leads to the assumption that we can change our reality when we do not like it. Which sounds great at first, but the fact is that we live mostly unhappy, that we have wars (from the ones in our minds, to the ones in our living rooms to the ones between countries) and that we have illnesses we can not truly heal – so why can we not create a realty which is perfect for us? Because ‘reality’ is a settlement offer for truth. But nothing can catch up with truth. And so no Reality – even if it looks as beautiful as it may – is truly successful. The only thing we’ve got from reality and not from truth is the pleasure of our individuality and the illusions of our own creation. But this does let us suffer – as we are in fact one and we are longing for the truth to be expressed again, longing for the expression of our all connection and oneness. We try to substitute true brotherhood, what we miss dearly, with clubs and associations, try to substitute it with friendships and partnerships – but it will never be enough, as reality will never be enough. It is a cheap imitation and we know it. And so we are always looking for more more more. But the grace will be found in truth, in surrendering to it. And I agree, it will be done by increasing our awareness and open up again for it. Put the pictures to the side and let space for the truth to be seen again.

      1. The ‘unhappiness’ comes from us knowing our reality isn’t it. We would have to know a base, a foundation of something greater or grander if we don’t like or are unhappy with our reality. As is said here that comes from the fact our reality is created as a distraction from the truth. Live the truth to the best of your ability and watch as the reality of the world slips by and you bring understanding from standing on the truth. We aren’t here to improve or make reality better we are here to transform or re-imprint reality to truth.

      2. Awesomeness pours from you Sandra! You remind me of a dream I had this morning where I knew I was dreaming and so drove off a cliff as there were ‘no consequences’. I quickly found out this was not the case. Every choice is made at the expense of another choice. If we choose to waste time, do our own thing or abuse the body we are in we cannot choose purpose, brotherhood or love.

  23. Sandra what you say in your blog is quite an ouch!
    I’m learning that I am responsible for everything in my life, and responsibility keeps coming back to bite me in the bottom because like you even after 10 years of self discovery I’m still not ready to accept my responsibility and live it in full. I know I have too much attachment to identification.

  24. Accepted knowledge of the time can be deceptive and lock us into mentalities that are simply not true. It can keep us in the status quo of that particular thought pattern which stops us questioning that there is more. A great example is when you consider in years gone by that it was taught and accepted as a fact that the world was flat when in todays world you wonder how that could have ever been thought to be true. We have to accept the reality that knowledge is not static but grows and evolves just as we human beings do.

  25. The reality is the world around us is far more than meets the eye and underneath our issues and our human suffering there are dynamics at play that we cannot always see but feel.

  26. “However, my responsibility to feel the truth of a reality does not become less just because others believe a ‘reality’ as their truth.” Quite potent words written here. It showed me that we can never abdicate our responsibility to feel the truth, and to discern what is being presented to us. It is a 24/7 thing.

    1. Yes Sarah – our accountability for our expression is a 24/7 thing.
      When it is so, that truth is there, always there and we just have covered it with our own creations, we do exactly know what truth is and what is not. So we are in charge of what we bring into our awareness. To join a creation, a reality which is not true is therefor an act of comfort. We can call it peace, ‘not rocking the boat’ or group pressure – but at the end it is just that: we do not take our responsibility.

  27. Thank you Sandra, recently I have been reflecting on how I know something yet hold it back until I see another sharing or living that, it’s a real case of giving my power away. I am not honouring what I feel and living from that, but waiting for permission because I’m not holding myself and my knowing equally or authoritatively.

    1. Love your honest sharing here Melinda. We do not want to be alone and mix up ‘join what everyone does, fit in the community’ with true connection. But by practicing to become aware of our inner knowing and live integrated with this – we feel more and more our all connection and our connection to God again. We are never alone when we are with ourselves and with truth.

  28. “The hardest thing to deal with in the world is that we create our own reality,” this is indeed a great quote from Simon and so true. We are the sum of our choices and the responsibility that follows feels empowering to me; not always ‘easy’ but freeing.

    1. Yeah, with this quote from Simon everyone could (or should?) get inspired by to write a blog about. Everyone brings an aspect than to see the one and only truth from different angles. Would be a good training of seeing the difference of created realities, which separating us and different aspects/viewings of/on truth, which unites us.

  29. I believe we are living in a reality that is very far from a true way of living, however there are a few people living today that know we are not living in a way that supports us or the world we live in and that we will live harmoniously together and this will become a reality for the masses a few hundred years hence. They are living our future now. In the same way that Pythagoras knew the earth was a globe, but it didn’t become a reality for humanity for a few thousand years. There have always been teachers that show humanity the future.

    1. “There have always been teachers that show humanity the future” – Hehe Exactly Mary! I had to laugh because I see that the future is now already – as the world was always a globe. So ‘the future’ is just a different kind of realization/awareness.

  30. Thank you Sandra, feeling your deep supportive message of how to
    be more aware of what we choose that our reality is. Humanity is waiting for more truth as we get sick from it without. Hence your blog and this blogsite is very well timed and needed.

  31. The lack of truth separates mankind – hence we know our answer to solve our problems at core. There is no need for judgement as we had all done the same. There is no need for hatred as we are all one and the same. There is no reason to hurt as continuing our hurt will only hurt us more. So, as Serge presents – reality – a true one is needed for us all evolve, and this requires honesty and ability to let go.

    1. Yes, and truth does unite us. So it can not be that we use truth to go against each other. If we use truth to be right, we missed the truth in fact. As truth is not in words but in divine energy and the connection to it.

  32. Recently I’ve been quite amazed at how different people’s realities can be – usually I have been able to see the same situation and how people have taken just a slice of it as the whole reality and another person another slice but when fitted together it’s made some sense. I’ve seen people cling to a version of events, believe them to be so no matter how divisive having these different realities are that clash with another’s; all fueled by the desire to stay blind to their part in the reality they created. This is not a reflection I can ignore and ask where am I doing/ have done similarly.

    1. Beautiful Karin! To see that it is not about to find ‘the right’ thing and than convince all the others, but to start to understand more and more and bring responsible choices into our own living is for me the key towards truth.

  33. It is deeply empowering to know that great evolution can come out of being exposed in our creations and the realities we choose to invest in… ultimately these are only a delay from the truth that waits patiently for us to choose responsibility and embrace it.

  34. Hear hear Samantha – “It is deeply empowering to know that great evolution can come out of being exposed”! I agree from my heart. By being exposed in our creation we are called to evolve and so – we are called in our power.

  35. A power-full article that offers the reader much. I too have started to work with the truth of being 100% responsible for my own life and what happens and yes it can be very challenging at times. But one of the many benefits is summed up in this line – “I am starting to see that to live in truth is connecting us as one again.” I recently met a fellow student of The Way of the Livingness, and we had not physically met before, but as we were both learning to live from the same truths, we were so connected. It was quite divine.

    1. I understand that feeling you had have sarah! And I can find this connection as well with people from the street, so to speak, when I let them in my heart and look behind their eyes and so see the Universe in them. We are all connected and it is so great to discover and claim back this truth again in daily life and living.

  36. It is a beautiful thing to learn to appreciate and value truth again instead of going in reaction to it before I know it. It clears insecurities, indulgences, parts of my life I am living a lie and even if that is uncomfortable, in the end it gives me a feeling of breathing fresh air.

  37. Gorgeous poweful piece/blog.. It made me realize that we are all on the same boat and had chosen to create reality over truth. This blog nailed it, and brought us back to all that serves us. Knowing what is true and what is possible illusion. Catcher is: nobody truly wins in their minds, only in their hearts. Hence there is one answer.

  38. I was sitting at a café having arrived early for a meeting, and I sat looking out at the high rise buildings that shut out the sun to the streets below, the noise from the construction site, trams, buses, cars, people rushing along, heads down too busy to say hello their whole attention is to get through the crowd as fast as possible without bumping into someone. And I felt we have created a false reality that is so far removed from who we are and have accepted it as the only way to live. But what is the quality of the life we are living when the rise in illness and disease are almost out of control? Could the illness and disease rates be a way of showing us that we are not meant to be living this way at all that actually we have got it all wrong? I personally believe this to be true as I wake up to the illusion we all suffer under because we have forgotten or given up what it is to be a son of God and have accepted being a son of man which is too me a bastardization of the truth that we are all the sons of God every single human being.

    1. Ha Mary! I agree. While I was on a holiday trip I just had a few moments where I was observing groups of people together in one room but everybody did look into their mobiles or computers. Specially in the airplane I saw how we are penned up in a small space and become entertained by movies and games so we do not freak out. We learned to manage our small space, which we have self created instead of bringing a change into our way of living. But this costs us a lot and we will see when we are down enough to give up on the creation and holding on to be a son of men to live again what we truly are as the sons of God.

  39. The fact of free will allows us to take on any perspective of life we like. Hence, why responsibility is so important because we then reflect and live out that perspective to our fellow brothers and we can either influence/mislead or inspire.

    1. This is such an important point you raise here Rachel. Yes we have ‘free will’ and so are able to create everything we like to – but for what costs? My perspective is that we are here on earth to learn again to use our free will in full responsibility and so in a way that serves us all equal so.

  40. What I have come to understand is that just because the masses are living in such an abusive way doesn’t make it the way to live. We all have free will and if people want to live this way then go ahead. It’s when someone lives contra to the masses that people start to get upset because they know at some level within them, that they are not actually living true to who they are but a lie. And for some of us we do not want to be exposed in the lie we are living so we defend something we actually know is in indefensible …how daft is that but we do this everyday. We clock everything that is going on around us all the time and we can feel when someone is living to a level that we hare not prepared to go to ourselves and so we try to bring them down so that they don’t stand out and remind us that we are not living to our true potential.

  41. The amazing thing is that once we accept what is shared here (that we create our own reality) only than can what that reality actually is can be changed. It gives to us our already known strength and resolve to bring truth to our circumstances, and the way to live the truth we feel practically in our day to day lives. Yes it rocks our boats, but not once have I sunk yet as I have begun to accept my life is mine to live.

  42. The day when we can appreciate that everything in life is our own creation and therefore our responsibility to re-correct or live deeper is the day we begin to truly learn responsibility.

  43. Beautiful Sandra. Reading your blog I am reminded that truth is the only real reality. Everything else is a construction we irresponsibly use for our own ends. The result of truth will always be freedom and evolution. The result of our false ‘realities’ will always be separation and misery.

  44. “The world will not become flat just because I think so and invest in it.” – and this concept relates to so much in our world these days. Something that is popular doesn’t mean that it is an evolutionary step for mankind. It’s popularity amongst people, makes it seem like it is a normal part of life (e.g. drinking alcohol or having a tattoo) but it is not evolving us, in fact it is devolving (if that is a word!).

  45. “So it looks like that truth is something that we discover by and by, and reality is what we create until the realisation takes place – or till we get proved via what others did realise ahead of the masses.” Stunning blog and sentence above! Wow the reality we have created on earth is nothing short of horrific. We each have a responsibility to reflect the truth to each other and bring this abuse to an end as soon as possible.

  46. Sandra I adore what you have written here
    “I am responsible for my choices, for what I accept as truth and for what we as a society accept as ‘normal’ in our (created) world. By creating ‘reality’ I am responsible for everything that is going on in this world and what happens to every single one of us. I am responsible for every point where we do not have living truth, but believe in a created reality which is a bastardisation of truth.”
    No one has asked me to be so responsible before and from that I can see it is my irresponsibility towards life and my fellow human beings that has helped to create the mess we are all struggling with.

  47. What you have said here is true and for some people hard to accept
    “Until I met Serge Benhayon… and through attending his presentations I started to consider the possibility that I am the one who created all my troubles and that what happens in my life is of my own making.”
    and because they find it hard to accept this possibility they look to find fault and pull apart what has been presented. For those people that can understand that we make our own reality there is a possibility to change and having made those changes my self I can say it has been so worth it.

    1. I completely agree, making the changes to bring our reality in line to our soul impulses is more than worth it, it makes life feel vibrant and purposeful like I did not know before I met Serge Benhayon. I noticed the other day that I hear the birds singing in my day to day going about life like I never before did, my ability to be present and aware is now much more heightened and this adds to my experience of what is all around us to be felt.

  48. Whilst it is true we create our own reality, what makes it difficult to change is that in doing so, that reality takes a life of its own to the point where it then in turn creates our reality for us, and so life for the majority becomes a cycle of momentums that we call life that are inordinately difficult to break.

  49. I’ve been reflecting recently on how much my reality has changed simply due to my choices and my greater understanding of self responsibility. I spent years living in a constant state of misery (Despite it not always being very obvious to the outside world, or at least to those who didn’t want to admit it). Now, I have nothing to complain about, no issues to lean on or to blame for my life being the way it is. I understand that my every choice has a far greater impact on the world than I can ever imagine, and although the responsibility of knowing that at times is too much to accept, I know it’s the truth, and nothing will change that reality.

  50. “I am the one who created all my troubles and that what happens in my life is of my own making” … this level of responsibility is sometimes hard to accept, however in my experience it is one of the most empowering steps we can ever take. Taking 100% responsibility for everything in our lives, it’s creation and constellation, allows the potential for enormous healing.

    1. Yes Jenny, accepting you are the creator of your misery is not pleasant to feel. It was much easier when I could blame it on others, or my job, but ultimately it was very liberating, because when I took full responsibility and started looking at the choices I was making, I could see the power was fully with me to make changes.

      1. Very true Debra, and we think the ‘misery’ and blaming others is the easier path but in fact being in that state is agony and exhausting. There is nothing easy about it… it is just the irresponsible state really.

  51. Sandra this is a power house blog. This is what true responsibility is. Understanding that it is us that create our reality, and if this reality is not based on truth, then what kind of reality are we creating? And by us creating a reality not based on truth, we are creating a reality that is based on separatism, which holds no brotherhood, love and God as it’s foundation.

  52. It was great to read your blog again Sandra, I am still unravelling the created reality I have chosen in order to keep my comfortable (or as someone said in a comment palatable) reality that is acceptable and doesn’t rock the boat. One that I knew about but has recently become exposed, is how much I still hold back from speaking the truth as it seems easier to stay quiet rather than feel another’s reaction, but the truth it is not and causes un-neccessary complication. It is something that I can no longer avoid and is no longer acceptable as like you say I am one of the many that are contributing to the reason the world is the way it is today.

  53. The reality we create can be very uncomfortable but yet I can defend it with my life! The utter madness of this is proof to me that other things are at play in our plane of life. One of Serge’s key presentations is the fact that there is two energies at play and the energy of ‘not love’ can interfere with your thoughts and take us wayyyy off track to what the ‘love’ energy naturally impulses us to be aligned to the truth of all things.

  54. I find it very empowering to understand that the quality if our experiences in life are a mere reflection of the choices that we have made up to that point, this urges us to feel the responsibility and integrity of our daily choices and the ways these truly enrich our every movement in connection with the divine.

  55. When we emanate truth, we are expressing what everyone also knows within their body, as every single one of our particles know what truth is, and it is this movement that guides the universe, so in effect, when we express truth we are simply moving in a way that is natural.

  56. There is a flatness that many of us perceive, it may not be that the globe is flat, but the way that we often see life is just in the physical, a very 3 dimensional view of things, that gives life a certain flatness. It is interesting to consider that there are still layers we can go to concerning our observation, there are many layers to life on this planet that can not been seen but are felt, are we willing to go further in our awareness of spheres, dimensions and energy to have a richer experience of what is available for us to know in this life.

  57. A brilliant blog Sandra on the simplicity and power felt when we choose true responsibility into our lives, many turn a blind eye to the fact that we create our own reality because we can then no longer blame others for what happens to us, if we embrace this truth we can begin to see the part we have played and then we can make choices that begin to truly heal this.

  58. I agree absolutely with your sharing Sandra. Once again we have Serge Benhayon to thank for these revealing teachings and your sharing them in an inspirational way for us to evolve back to who we truly are.

  59. Great examples that you give Sandra in the way we can so easily want the world to change around us, and yet don’t see our part in it all, how we are ‘creating’ all there is around us – ‘I was sure that it was my father who was the cause for all the disagreements and trouble. Later, as a young adult completing a Psychotherapy Degree, I became sure my mother was to blame for all the family disagreements and trouble. And again later I felt certain that, if just my husband would change a bit here and there, my world would be much greater.’
    Nothing changes unless we take that step of self responsibility – and it is so empowering.

  60. It doesn’t matter how many Ph.D.’s, degrees, diplomas, or qualifications in general one has … Everyone needs a dose of true wisdom, of the extraordinary understanding that lies innate within all of us, and Serge Benhayon ignites this spark by the very essence of his being.

  61. It’s true we can create for ourselves different ‘realities’ through having different beliefs and ideals that we ascribe to that change the way we perceive things – so instead of truly observing life and seeing all that is there to see, we filter it with our own personal set of beliefs/ ideals that we have accumulated and which lead us to interpret or react to situations differently than if we were truly seeing the whole picture…

  62. I wonder if what you felt in that conversation was actually sisterhood which is when we share the intimacy and connection with one other. What we develop and establish in sisterhood with one can then be replicated with many and hey presto brotherhood. Neither brother and sisterhood are gender specific expression despite the terminology.

  63. Truth is the only way for all to walk back to love, and out of our own creation. There can only be one truth, for we are all made of the same stars and breath the same breath. To deny such a truth we are choosing a way of living that avoids the responsibility we all share to walk and reflect the immense love we are.

  64. So I have to stop for a moment when I read this ““The hardest thing to deal with in the world is that we create our own reality,”” it’s certainly completely true and something that I’ve felt for many many years, growing up I never liked what my life was like, the reality I found myself in. Yet when I read this today, after 13+ years of UniversalMedicine support and healing I get to look at this differently, I’ve made changes in my life, I’ve worked hard on the quality that I choose to live in and as a result I have to say life is quite amazing, yet I don’t feel I appreciate the reality here that I have created and that is where my focus goes next. Appreciation of the reality I am now in, in order to deepen its depth.

  65. The world is flat is a great reflection for the many things we possibly accept today which are in fact not true. The possibility that we don’t think but instead channel thoughts from different sources of energetic integrity is something worthy of consideration. And to consider deeply how we act in different ways, personally I can feel that is a truth.

  66. Our body lives the truth all day every day so where are we within ourselves when we don’t let ourselves know what we know. Not letting ourselves know what we know is a huge indulgence in irresponsibility.

  67. History shows to us that the truth can’t be hidden, killed or suppress. It always emerges after all, shining and revealing what it is and what is not.

  68. We do indeed create our own reality, we are the sum of our choices in any given moment. A great blog Sandra and a powerful lesson in true responsibility.

  69. “The hardest thing to deal with in the world is that we create our own reality,” We have to one day start to accept that every choice we have made has put us exactly where we are today and we have no one else to blame, crticise, react to et.. other than say ok so I am where I am so what can I learn from the choices I have made and how can I move forward from here living the love I know.

  70. I love how you have differentiated truth and reality, Sandra, and how personal and limited our realities are while truth is universal.

  71. Sandra this is a great blog. We often think our reality is the truth and don’t distinguish between the two, but you have explained how our reality can change if we care to look beyond and be open. The earth is flat vs the earth is spherical, is a super example. People used to be imprisoned for saying that the earth revolved around the sun rather than the previously held belief that the earth was the centre of the universe.

    1. Yeah. Our beliefs and creations are very dear to us, as they bring us safety. But at what costs? Everyone of us will come to the realization of truth one day – question is, how long and how much are we willing to suffer first, before we are willing to start to give up on our ‘own’ creations? And yes, People used to be imprisoned for telling the truth – but is it not still like that? We are maybe not longer brutally quartered or physical crucified – but do we not get the same in a literally way? Media and ‘force-owners’ try to tear people apart, who are living in a truly different way. Many websites, even the ones that are at the forefront of efforts ‚free access to knowledge’, are allowed to tell untruths and disgraceful claiming about people and organizations, just because they can. It is still not nice at all to present truth these days. You get pelted with dirt, your name gets dragged into mud, accused for crimes, you haven’t not done…. Its all the same. Just less obvious from our point of view. But in fact the same energy is on play like it always was and is. But something has changed! There are people who are willing to live the truth. They do it together, learning to represent it in deep connection and playfulness. Step by step – they make a difference, in the way they live.

  72. The only true way to know whether something is true or not is to listen to the body. That way our made up “reality” can get challenged.

    1. Great point Elizabeth! Our body. A marker of truth – as a wise man called it. But we are glamorizing just a part of our body – the brain – and fed the rest of it to the lions ( ideals, function, fitness, attraction,…). It is a big call to ask us again to take our bodies as a marker of truth, learn to understand again what it is reflecting us. We are already discovered by science that our bodies are made of the same particles as the stars – now we have to digest this fact (that we are a part of the Universe) and learn to live in alignment to this grace, instead against it – as we disgracefully do since quite a while.

  73. A living truth or a created reality – there is a big difference between the two. Truth offers unity and oneness, and created realities offer individuality through their separateness.

    1. I see it as our ‘job’, so to speak, to create our reality aligned to our truth. To bring the two in a coherent/unity relationship. And I agree Melinda, the difference between the two gives a reflection of our way of living, which is against the truth. We can say we are disobedience to the truth…and it brings us what we want: a separated individuality. And it brings us all the pain and horror the world suffers under.

  74. One of the many great gifts Serge Benhayon presents is about the truth of living with energetic responsibility and to let go of the blame culture, so dominant in our society. This has been life changing for me and still learning to deepen awareness and live from this level of responsibility .
    “To learn that I am responsible for everything in my life – this ‘possibility’ is such a firecracker to me. Even after 10 years of dealing with and learning to accept responsibility of my choices, I am still not ready to live it in full”.

    1. It seems like we are getting something out of blaming others, that we hold ourselves blameless, but in fact we give up our innocence by blaming others and with giving up on our responsibility we give up our power as well. We disempower us by blaming others. So when I say, I am not ready to live responsibility in full, I say: I am not ready to live my full power. I do not blame me about this – just it is good to become honest here. First step in ’empowering myself’ again.

  75. “But let us be honest and ‘real’ – if we create our own reality (what we do), our relationships, the choices we make, then everything that happens in our life is our own responsibility.” When we take this fully on board we can no longer blame anyone else for our life’s predicaments. This becomes hugely apparent when faced with a serious illness. It is so much easier to blame, fate, our genes, or even God. This is a complete abdication of responsibility.

    1. That is such an important point Sue about the abdication of responsibility by relying on created realities. The body being the marker of truth though eventually catches up with us.

  76. To be in our truth invites a connection to others to be in theirs. Often we can go along with each other, but in fact, we have an opportunity to stop and feel things for ourselves. And by going along with others we seem to indulge in a blame culture which takes us even further away from the truth of what we feel.

    1. Thank you HM, it seems that giving our power away means aligning to realities and leaving the truth we innately do feel and know.

  77. To accept that we are the creators of our own reality is a real game changer. What I have learnt is that the learning never stops when we start to see the truth of this. We have created layer upon layer of our self made reality, all to avoid living and seeing truth in full.

  78. “The world will not become flat just because I think so and invest in it.” There is Truth that stands outside all ideals and beliefs. Learning to live from and with this Truth as one’s foundation is to be a student of The Way of The Livingness.

    1. It is simple this: the choice to open up our eyes. If I look at my floor, the little place around me, I can believe in a flat wold, as they look like where I am. But the world is not just the place I stand and every single one of us is connected to the other. And when we choose to become aware of this connection we become aware of the whole world – instead of ‘just’ our little piece. In fact we are aware of this truth all of the time and it took a lot of effort (avoiding, denying) to miss it.

  79. ” However, my responsibility to feel the truth of a reality does not become less just because others believe a ‘reality’ as their truth.” This is so important a truth is always a truth , a reality is not always true unless its from truth. Thank you for sharing Sandra.

  80. There is so much more then we are willing to be aware off.
    This is one of the reasons we like to eat so much. A great way to stop feeling.

  81. It is such a realization to know that we create our own reality and are fully responsible for our experiences in life, this totally wipes out the victimhood mentality and the blame games we like to play in order to avoid responsibility of what we choose to align to. It is through the quality of our movements that we create the energetic imprints that will carry us through life

  82. How we perceive the world, and hence what we call our ‘reality’ can very much be influenced by any beliefs or ideals that we hold and so what we call our reality may not necessarily be the whole truth of what is there for us to actually ‘see’…

  83. Super interesting that we can create a reality that we hate and then blame others for it, but also super inspiring that in any moment we can make movements towards changing that reality to be one based upon the principles we want to live with.

  84. I found this deeply touching to read today, everything was clearly explained and I can understand now the difference between realities and the truth. I feel that the reason people react so strongly to messengers of truth, such a Serge Benhayon, is because they also know the truth. Otherwise why react so strongly? I feel created realities are like a form of security to support individualism, whilst truth unites us all as one.
