Owning is Owning You

The words “me,” “my” and “I” show ownership in our language. “Me” and “my” point toward something owned, and “I” points to the self, the ego, which shows ownership of a thought, a feeling or an attachment of some kind. When there is ownership, there is pride included, so every time those words are said, then there is a sense of pride/ownership with whatever you are saying.

Perhaps experiment with removing those words from your vocabulary and see how difficult it is speak without them. You will stumble every time you go to use them and need to reconstruct your sentence or substitute a different word. This will show how often you use those words.

Those three words are the creation and the continuation of the ego self, the part which holds all the opinions, beliefs, feelings and attachments, and that starts the moment you are given a name. Once you are given a name, in a sense, you are no longer just the real self, you are the real self with a label attached. Then with that first label, you start to apply all your beliefs to it. The beliefs and all the knowledge were added to the name, not to the entity — the real self.

If you are referencing “I” as the “skin bag,” then you are referencing the original being, the real self. The other part is the linguistic/psychological part, the labels that were added later. When doing the experiment of removing the labels of “me,” “my” and “I,” you will possibly experience a greater confusion; and the greater confused you are the better off you are in regards to transformation. This is opposed to how this world views being “better off,” as this world acknowledges and rewards those who know things; and the more things you know, the more recognition, money and rewards you get.

The more labels we put on ourselves the greater the separation we put between us and everyone else; thus, the more violence we have. Once we separate ourselves, it is easier to hate “them” and kill “them.” We no longer see others as being the same as us, for we now see enemies as “others.”

The same thing is true with our names although on a much smaller scale, as it separates us from our real self. Yet, if we could ever get to the point where in the smallest sense we are our name, from there to the other side is that last one percent. The first 99 percent is getting back to your original name, which means releasing and letting go of all the labels you have attached to it in order to get there.

That new-born entity was perfect until it was given a name, and that was the first flaw. That was the first flaw of your entire life. Getting back to that beginning flaw is ninety-nine of your journey to transformation. However, the movement between your name and that perfect entity still has a chasm between them, and it will take a quantum leap to get over that divide. That is the point where “the real” meets the illusion.

This quantum leap is like jumping off a cliff without looking to where you are jumping and not knowing where you will land or even if you will land. This quantum leap spoken of does not know what is below, above or around you. It is the jumping out of your false self. It is the action of moving to someplace new psychologically, meaning “never having been before.”

In this conversation we are discussing two different “you’s”. One is the psychological you which is your personality, the one that has all your knowledge. The other “you” we are speaking of is the perfect entity which was born of pure intelligence. The perfect “you” has been so smothered by the personality “you”, so that it hardly exists any more. It is just a tiny speck buried inside and is the only part of you that is actually real.

The most powerful part of your being, this intelligence, is buried. Intelligence at its smallest point is love, and love cannot force anything. Love can open, as a flower does, but it cannot pull or push or manipulate or force in any way. The world of knowledge can use manipulation and violence to push and pull us into the insanity of this world. The world of knowledge has taken us over and smothered love and intelligence under a ton of belief.

About Edward Jones

Edward Jones, in 1979, had an experience of death ending in what he calls self-transformation. In modern terms, it has been suggested that it was a psychological death, "But if your ability to walk, talk, or think ends; and you return to consciousness, you will have had an experience of death. You will ultimately see that a psychological death would be experienced in the same manner as a physical death," he states. Unlike others who have had and speak of a transformation, Edward hand no idea of what happened to him during his four hour death experience. He'd had never delved into mysticism or any kind of Eastern thought, but what he experienced was exactly what millions have searched for forever. Edward calls it ecstasy--living with a new consciousness, one void of violence, stress, fear, and worry--being free. Edward was just a common ordinary business man who came face to face with all his failures in business, in marriage and all this world calls success. In facing that failure without excuse or reason and with truth, he came upon the source of all things. Because he had no previous knowledge of what had happened to him, he realized that he was the source of all that had happened to him. "There is a new consciousness born on the planet and it is available to you now." Edward relates this message in workshops, meetings, business, online forums and to all who come into contact with him. Edward carries this one message in his daily life: "There is no love on the planet, and that is good news because in realizing that, we can dispose of what we have been calling love, which is not love at all, and create the possibility of bringing forth Love, Truth, Intelligence and Creation to our war-laden manner of existing on this earth." Edward's books are not exactly fodder for the mind which is seeking success, money, stature, or security in this insane world. They are for the ones who care for internal peace for themselves and world peace for the planet. Edward died, and like the Phoenix he arose from the ashes of his old life to bring forth something new onto this planet. He discovered that is was a consciousness void of violence. It is our violence bringing us closer to the brink of destruction. Will we transform our lives, or will we self-destruct is the question that we need to ask of ourselves. Edward has devoted the last thirty years of his life bringing reaching out to people who are seriously considering the options before us.
