The Truth will Set you Free

The old saying, “the truth will set you free”  is so much deeper than that because it has to do with speaking the truth. People get in arguments about “What is truth”, and “nobody knows what the truth is.” and “It is your truth or my truth.”

They don’t realize that speaking truth is the doorway to the universal truth. The universal truth is in the action of speaking the truth. Universal truth includes your truth and my truth. We will still have ”Who took the last cookie”, and “Who slammed the door”.  We still have an individual truth, and through that individual truth is the opening to being free.

Being free also has so much greater depth to it.  Free means to be unencumbered, to have no attachments, no beliefs and not be trapped and limited by thought. The depth of that is huge. If you are going to be free, you have to give up all those things you are attached to. This includes your children and your parents and others in your life. I don’t mean that you have to physically give them up. I mean to psychologically stop carrying them around ­­­­­ ­— end the attachment you have with them.

As long as you say “my children” or “my parents” or put the word my to anything, there is an attachment, an ownership. What you own, owns you. What you own is always with you, weighing you down, keeping you from seeing reality. Ironically once you no longer have those attachments, these same people can assist you in seeing reality.

Words have a depth to them. They are so deep that when you follow them, you get to the place of the word itself, the word happened after the thing. If you ever cared to become the thing, then you have to go through the word.

To be free we must detach from the things we have an attachment to. Just making a simple linguistic change could do it. No longer use those labels to refer to yourself or others. Some people have used the word offspring rather than my children. This is a new way of looking at them, so they no longer will be following the dictates of the roles you have set for son or daughter. You have released both the ownership and the roles/labels, and you did it by using linguistics, words. Words are creation if they are spoken new.

When you release all your attachments, you will be free. You will be new as you will not have all the old things around you anymore. This will give you the opportunity to do what you have been waiting all your life to do – grow up. We are all children living in adult bodies. The world has programmed and conditioned us to where by the age of four we have stopped being human and became robots. Once you make a break from that conditioning and start doing something new, you become free and you can start to raise yourself to be an adult human being.

We all failed at raising ourselves. We didn’t have a chance, really. We were trained and conditioned from the moment we were born to be robots. To follow the rules was drummed into us over and over by everyone we met. It is no wonder we could not, as young children, keep our original intelligence. We were rewarded for knowledge instead. We were rewarded for following the rules and often punished when we used intelligence. So, we all failed.

Now we have the opportunity to raise ourselves anew, and we need to do that with first acknowledging we are trained robots and see that we are programmed and conditioned by our beliefs. That we have failed. Acknowledging the failure allows the failure to complete itself so something new can happen.

And then speak the truth of it, and be free.

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.
