“This is a MUST READ for anyone who is seeking an end to their pain and suffering.
I have read 100s of books about healing, the mind, self-help books, etc. and this was the first book that showed me exactly what was important for me to see – my relationship with myself! Edward Jones points in a direction that no other person or book has ever shown me, to the truth that I hadn’t seen before. He doesn’t stand above a person and speak down to you, Edward speaks directly with you. This book goes beyond positive thinking, beyond beliefs, beyond enlightenment, beyond what anyone else is writing / talking about. This book shows you what is needed to create a life of aliveness and awareness – a walking / waking alive meditation. The secret to life is included in this book, all you need to do is read it with a completely open mind, and you will see it.” Dona Bilangi, Troy Michigan

 “I see this as a possible example of what Dr. Richard Bucke called entering into “cosmic consciousness” and leaving “self-consciousness” behind.  In his book Cosmic Consciousness, Bucke wrote: “. . . the man having reached the age necessary to bring him to the top of the self conscious mental stratum, some day he enters Cosmic Consciousness. What is his experience? Details must be given with diffidence, as they are only known to the writer in a few cases, and doubtless the phenomena are varied and diverse.” 
Bucke discovered in his case histories, that in all cases of entrance into “cosmic consciousness” it happened all at once.  There is a sudden transition.  Interactions between people in cosmic consciousness and people in self-consciousness have been occurring for many thousands of years.  If you have picked up this book (A New Consciousness Born) looking for such an interaction, read it and you may discover that you have had one. I did.”   Austin R. Rust, Author of Changes.

“The action of speaking the truth of yourself can bring about a transformation in your life. It did mine. What is contained in this book is needed by the world.”  – Kay Hardy, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand

“Every other person I’ve heard speak about transformation – including Krishnamurti – says what it’s like, where you should go, and what’s on the other side. But none explains the one thing you need to do to get there. Edward Jones does.”  – Brian Rismoen, Troy, Michigan

“An excellent question and answer format to assist one to look at possibility of a new consciousness. Nothing to change, nothing to learn. Simply look at the possibility of something new.” Thomas Laufer,

“As we find the human race embroiled in a perilous situation on this planet, Edward points out the causes and the way out of our personal and collective problems. Edward speaks directly to the individual, for the collective consciousness is a macrocosm of the individual. The solutions must come from a new consciousness which he says begins with speaking the truth to ourselves and others. This is a serious book for serious times. In its simplicity the seriousness may be overlooked.”  Editor, Ophadophalus Publishing.

“One thing in particular that has stuck with me is your emphasis on being ‘truthful’.  Since I read those words I have been very often noticing how I twist the truth around to suit myself or how I think other people would like to hear things.  I never really noticed before how often I do this – and it has been a process of noticing, questioning why and when I do this (usually unconsciously) and how to go about steering myself in the direction of being more ‘truthful’, and what indeed ‘truth’ is within this world. That I would say is the most lasting and helpful idea in the book so far.” – Gary D.

“I loved the book. It is amazing that  when in desperation of needed change, when we come in agreement with, that what we did didn’t work anymore, something happens that changes everything. Whatever label we put on it, our attitudes towards everything we once did shifts and we start anew. Rigid honesty is what the 12 step program calls it,  truth is what you call it, we become whole. Its as if we all need to get to the side of a hill, there are many paths or ways to do so, the truth is we get to the side of the hill only if we want it bad enough. Your work did reinforce this to me. I did enjoy the workshop part of the book. Hope to discuss this more also with you.”  – James L, Licensed Drug Councelor, Tennessee

“Your book is a rare thing – it’s not about reading and knowing, it’s an experience and takes me into the unknown and unknowable. I have read a lot of books now and only had something remotely similar with Eckhart Tolle’s, A New Earth, but it’s different to that as well.” – Jan Rooney, United Kingdom

 **************

“The book is by far the most life changing I have ever read. It requires an openness and genuin…e seeking to grasp its essence. It is challenging and is often hard-hitting. Eckhart’s A New Earth shifted me, this has catapulted me. The book is quite hard-hitting, and yet doesn’t pass on an energy of condemnation (you will understand that is something of a sore subject still after being told about ‘sin’ for so long) and offers a freedom to admit things about myself, which otherwise I wouldn’t. A big thing was seeing that fear of exposure and admission is not something to be afraid of, and so facing up to some of the dark aspects of myself is getting easier. The more I see the dysfunction, the more I see that we are all the same. I’m seeing this increasingly, and now when I see something in another person, it’s not long before I can find it in myself-and it’s O.K.”  Lynn Everett – Purfield, United Kingdom

“Having just finished Edwards book for me it is all about speaking up, speaking truth in our daily lives and living in the present. This is something that most of my life I have not done. I do so now yet sometimes I still revert back. I found Edward’s book easy to read in some parts and not so in others. This book is a must read if you are caring too see your life as it really hits you smack in face about how unreal some of us are living our life on this planet. So if you haven’t read it get off your backside and order a copy today. I rate this book a 10/10.” Michael Ahearn, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand

“Edward’s book will awaken you to yourself and the world within you.  The power, (truth) behind his words is your power as well when you see what the words are pointing too.  Applying these words in my daily life has shown me the lies of the conditioning and programming I have received all through out my life, which has set me free to speak the truth of that, now with no attachment to these concepts of knowledge or belief of them. I am life and there is such joy in this realization of that.  You will have many WOW moments, when you apply these words to your daily life and began speaking truth of them with yourself and others. Here ya go Edward the truth of your book for me and this world within us all.”  R.S. Virginia

A hard-hitting, non-fiction book which addresses every aspect of our lives; it shows us the manner in which we are trapped in our thinking processes. The book is transcribed from live conversations with Phillip LeRoy and others. With this book’s formatting, you can be drawn into and become part of the conversation. The new consciousness that Edward speaks of is violence free, and he takes a step-by-step, simple approach that points to what we can do to bring forth peace into our lives and onto the planet.

“Reading this book gave me answers to the problems I have with anxiety and depression. The books points to something Edward calls, ‘thinking is thinking me’. With me I allow a simple thought to turn into such a nightmare and it is the foundation of an anxiety attack and depression. The key to the anxiety and depression is catching the “thinking, thinking me” which to me, it seems, is always based on lies. The words that we are so trapped in are simply inadequate to describe.  The more I realise this, the faster all this rubbish fell away. It’s like defragging my brain and removing the wasted space where the “thinking, thinking me” seems to be so at home.  I could read this book over and over, and the more times I do the more doors open within me. To me the book itself is endless.” Mike, Tazmania

“This reading experience goes to places people dare not speak about, let alone write down in a book.  It has the ‘red pill’ effect, or when what is written is seen for the self, there is no going back! Direct, no nonsence clear dialogue that goes straight to the core of belief.  When reading it maybe pertinant to keep in mind, it is only the ego that gets offended!  : )”   Katherine Evans Scotland UK
