Want Wants More

“Want” causes only pain and suffering, as you will never get what it is you want. All “want” can do is “want more”. Children are taught to “want” almost as soon as they are born. They are asked to make choices, to make comparisons and to assess that one thing as “better” than another. This is the beginning of “want.” If you see a child who just wants more, more, more .. you might notice they are negative in their outlook on life. Maybe then look to see if you are also negative in your outlook in life. If so, you might notice that you also “want” many (more) things.

There is a distinction I make between want, need, and necessity. It is important to see this distinction in your life. Look at each “want” as it comes up, and look to see if it is a function of your ego or a function of staying alive. If you don’t get what you want, is that going to kill the real you? Is your “want” more important than your life? That is the manner in which you can discover yourself. Look at all your wants. Does your “want” propel you to be free, or does it propel you to be trapped?

Look at “want” from a mental construct. Would a person who is stuck in want ever be able to be free? No. They would be stuck in “want and more”. So, if your intent is to be free, then “want” would need to disappear. As long as you hold the context called “want” then all you will do is want. And often what you want will take precedent over what other people want, or you will not be happy. If you are arguing and fighting for what you want, that is just reinforcing the past beliefs.

I have suggested that people take the word “want” out of their vocabulary because removal of it actually takes out the action and the word. If you remove want from your vocabulary, then want (and more) might disappear from your life. Want and more move together.

If you take want out of our vocabulary then you would not mind whatever is happening. You won’t mind if you have Sugar Puff Flakes or Rice Krispies for breakfast. You won’t “want” either. You just won’t mind whatever you have. This is being able to say “Yes” to life. The negativity will end on its own, and there will be no fake positive hiding it.

Just take “want” out of your vocabulary and see what happens. See what happens with your life; see what happens with your conversations. Experiment with exchanging it with a different word. Sometimes that is just a “fake it till you make it thing,” and sometimes it is real. Some possible word substitutes are “care” (or “care to”) or “like” or “prefer.” Substituting a different word also will put a pause in your life, in your words, as you will stumble over using the new word. It gives you a brief pause which might be an opening for something new to enter.

Pausing/hesitation gives you the possibility of seeing your conditioning because it interrupts the program. If you are always using the words “more and want”, stop and look at that, and substitute a different word. Then you might actually look at what it is you really care to say. Using the word “care”, for example, has a softness to and shows that you will put some care into it.

It has to do with dimensional thinking or constructed thinking. If you ”care to”, that conveys concern, a whole lot greater an action than “want”. If you say “care to” it is OK if you do, and it is also OK if you don’t. But if you want it, you have got to have it. And sometimes the want gets to be obsessive, and then it becomes a necessity. It is a childish action from an adult who is stuck as a child.

I also suggest you start to use the words “thank you” as this speaks to the word more. If you start to say “thank you,” I guarantee it will remove a great deal of your natural tendency to be negative. You have made your life naturally negative and saying “thank you” will start to remove that negativity from your life. Negativity is not natural. It is just that you have created it to be natural, and that negativity comes from wanting more. You are never grateful for what you have, and you never think you have enough. If you have appreciation then “more” is gone.

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.
