“Applying these words in my daily life has shown me the lies of the conditioning and programming I have received all throughout my life, which has set me free to speak the truth of that now with no attachment to concepts as knowedge.” R.S, Reiki Master, Virginia.

******************

"I loved the book. It is amazing that when in desperation of needed change … something happens that changes everything. Rigid honesty is what the 12 step program calls it, truth is what you call it.” James L, Drug Counselor, Tennessee.

******************

"This book answers many of the problems I had with anxiety and depression which was ruling my everyday life. I allow a simple thought to turn into such a nightmare and it is the foundation of an anxiety attack and depression. When the ‘thinking is thinking me’ syndrome that Edward points to was ‘caught,’ all that rubbish fell away. Reading this book was like defragging my brain." Mike, Tasmania

Editorial Reviews Amazon.com:
"A New Consciousness Born, You are the Source is 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."

A New Consciousness Has no Need to be Right

First of all, I’m going to present my case for grammatically switching back and forth from first, second, and third person. I am writing for people of this world, and you are a person of this world, and so am I. When I use the words, they, people, we, us, he, she, I, one or you,  those pronouns all point back to one person—me as the writer or you as the reader. We are all one: you, me, and the illusionary “they.” I switch person back and forth to keep from saying you because people do not tolerate very well the finger pointing to them. They consider it an attack. If you have gotten confused about all this, just remember I am talking about you. And when I say ego, I also mean you. Ego is not something separate from any one of us, and it is not something that we have. It is you and I presenting ourselves to the world.

We just cannot see ourselves as we are, as we actually are. We need a mirror, and not the one that is on the bathroom wall. We need to use the mirror of relationship, and yet most of us do not look at ourselves in the relationship with another. We are either lost in thought at that moment, lost in anger or a myriad of other feelings. When I say we are lost, I mean that the real person is not there. The robot is there—the entity that performs by habit and having its buttons pushed.

What usually happens when you tell another that he or she is a liar or a thief or even that they are wrong? Well, you know. Normally all hell breaks loose. What happens if someone tells you that you are a liar, a thief  or that you are wrong?  Ditto. It pains us to admit the truth about ourselves. However, if someone tells you how smart and right you are, you are filled with pride, are you not? If 10 people are sitting in the room, and a voice says that nine and a half of them are crazy, every one of them will be that half that is not crazy, and be proud of it.

In all reality, the person cannot see what he or she is doing or saying because the mind coming out of memory is not alive—it is only re-acting and putting up defenses all as the ego. The ego (the illusionary you) is what blocks you from reality, the truth.

If you are disagreed with in what you think or an action you take, an argument will usually ensue. The ego (you) doesn’t like to be disagreed with. It wants to be right all the time, and you will continue to argue or at least continue to say what is right and that the other person is wrong. You cannot go back and prove what a person said unless it is on a recording. Most arguments ensue over who is right and who is wrong, so people will continue to argue about who said what or try to prove the other wrong. People will say, “I remember it exactly.” The one rule you should remember when dealing with memory is that memory is faulty. You may think you remember correctly, but you may have actually said something else. Most people of don’t actually hear what they are saying.

 The argument begins simply because you don’t want to be wrong. If an argument is about who remembers what, rule number one is to acquiesce. That will either end your need to be right, or it will end your fear of being wrong. It takes a strong person to surrender the need to be right, but when you do, that allows you to be wrong. The other person may laugh and glory in that they beat you, but in this case the other person is still trapped in his little pea brain of needing to be right whilst you have grown immensely. This is a difficult thing to do, but if you can accomplish this one little thing of not needing to be right, a powerful impact will be with you throughout your life.

If you can discover that you have a necessity to be right, it will die right there. Then all of the places you had to be right will show up for you to see as you walk along for the rest of your life. You will see all the places that the other person has to be right and how the whole world has to be right. Then you see all the things that cause the world to be the way it is. That is humility. When you see yourself, from that vision you see the world. You then begin to live with freeness, for you are no longer caught in the insanity of the ego that rules this planet—everyone wanting to be right.

Can we give up our need to be right? Can we give up our anger when told something we don’t care to hear? It appears that people only get angry when truth is spoken that they don’t want to admit. We don’t want to hear the truth about ourselves. We had rather live in the illusion of thought—what we think about ourselves.

Will you show me where I am “wrong” in each instance, please, until I have no “right” left in me?
