I struggle for words.. I struggle because at some point I would have to deliver an excruciating blow to those who desperately want to believe that Kenneth and ‘Jed’ are two different entities. Those upholding an image of an honest, straight talking, non profiteering man somewhere in the USA who wrote brilliant books and now wants to be left alone.
The reality is more prosaic and, strangely, more dramatic at the same time. There are no ‘saints’ or ‘sinners’; there are humans who make do with whatever is laid upon them by life. Brilliance can perfectly combine with tales of depravity, high intelligence can be tricked into dumb choices, a serial killer can be capable of single acts of kindness.
I said it from the VERY BEGINNING: you will be left with – you. Only. No hand holding and no luminescent bubbles of ‘spirituality’ unless you learn some lessons here. If you don’t, you will be back in the cradle, with another name to hold your hand yet again. It could be Jed, John or Rishi, all of them wanting to convince you that you need them.
I also struggle at observing the display of perfect Unconsciousness that took hold of the IG forum. The inability of human beings to see all sides of the coin SIMULTANEOUSLY results in distorted views, absence of any cohesion in their perceptions and corrupt opinions. To those I would say: now that you know – hold your fire. Spitting saliva, calling for blood and retribution makes you part of one angry mindless mob.
Leave him alone.
Hold this perception in your mind for a minute… there has never been Jed McKenna. There has always been Kenneth McMordie. Now, read the Wisefool Press disclaimer with this perception:
Jed McKenna is not an active teacher, online or off. He does not engage in social media or forums. He does not give classes or workshops or accept money from students. He has no teachings or products other than those offered by WiseFool Press and our international publishing partners. Anyone claiming to be Jed or to speak for him is misrepresenting themselves.
There is no Jed McKenna, never has been. But Kenneth needs to save the books, and if that means letting go of the forum which takes much time without substantial returns.. so be it. The books are what made him. Not the forum.
If you followed the EM, you may have got the understanding that I never speak from ignorance, to the best of my ability. If a statement was made – it was first looked upon from many different angles, checked against own intuition and facts and then backed up by evidence. I have been the recipient of much derision over the past few weeks and months, but we are getting the results now, and you’ve got to ask yourself… which part of this writing here was not true?
As ‘Jed’ stated on IGF echoing my words of ‘not all as it seems’:
Interesting… but hardly the full story. As I have said before… patience. All will be revealed.
Things are not quite what they appear to be… yes, I’m sure some of you have already realized that.
