A New Consciousness Ending the Conspiracy of Ineffectiveness Part II
Q: Edward, why are you calling our way of living a conspiracy to be ineffective?
E: Well, as I said earlier, to conspire means to breathe together. The conspiracy is so deeply ingrained in us that we are actually breathing it together. Do you see what I’m saying? We don’t get together like in a football game where the team gets in a huddle and they all say, “OK you go down and to the right. You go down to the left, and this guy’s going to run over there.” They make a plan and then they come up to the ball, snap it, and do their thing. Well, in our lives we don’t huddle together and say “OK! Let’s everybody do less than we can actually do. Let’s pretend that we’re being real.” We don’t do that. It’s conspired; it’s breathed. It is so deep that it’s an unspoken conspiracy that we will remain in the illusion and believe our way through life. When we start off in life, we aren’t being ourselves. We’re not being the real live entity that was born. We’re being the entity we were forced to be after our birth. So isn’t that in itself ineffective?
Q: How would we be now if we were as we were at our birth? We didn’t know anything at our birth.
E: There isn’t any way of knowing that because there hasn’t been anybody in thousands of years who was simply born and grew who wasn’t forced to be ineffective. There is not anyone who was not forced into being a false entity.
Q: What are we doing that’s making us false?
E: We’re being our personality rather than ourselves.
Q: What’s wrong with being our personality?
E: Personality is something that you invent for yourself to be rather than being the self that you are.
Q: We usually hear that we’re born with a certain personality.
E: Well that’s malarkey. We’re born as perfect individuals with no personality and no hates. We’re not born hating black people if we’re white, and we’re not born hating white people if we’re black. We’re not born being a Christian or a Muslim or a Catholic. All of that is learned. We’re taught all of that nonsense.
Q: So you’re saying the ineffectiveness is actually what we’ve learned.
E: What we’ve learned, yes.
Q: What should we be learning?
E: That’s not a known. We don’t know.
Q: Might that not be worse than what we’re learning now?
E: Well I don’t know. Can you think of anything worse than what we are now? Look at the suffering and the misery. Look at the people on the planet not being themselves, the way they are born. Look at all the greed and the violence and the wars and the people killing themselves and the drinking and the alcohol and the drugs and all of the things on this planet. I suppose things could be worse than that, but I don’t think so.
