Higher Truth

"No problem can be solved by the same kind of thinking that created it." - Albert Einstein

"No learning is acquired by anyone unless he wants to learn it, and believes in some way that he needs it." - A Course in Miracles

The problem with having opinions & beliefs is that nobody can know the truth, or the next level of truth, as long as they think they already know the truth.

Power vs. Force

We all have opinions and beliefs, and we express them constantly, but are those opinions and beliefs actually true, or is it just wishful thinking on behalf of the ego? What if those opinions and beliefs are in reality quite negative and harmful to us, creating all sorts of discord and suffering in our life that we're not even consciously aware of?

As David R. Hawkins points out, the fundamental limitation of the human mind is that it's unable to tell the difference between truth and falsehood, positives from negatives, and that which is beneficial from the harmful. Thus, we have problems in our lives and in the world.

If we all actually knew the truth, and were living that truth, there wouldn't be a single man-made problem in the entire world, ever, because truth doesn't ever create problems. Only falsehood creates problems, or the illusion of "problems."

David Hawkins' book Power vs. Force provides a solution to the human brain's built-in ignorance; a means to tap into pure all-knowing consciousness so that we can drop negatives from our life, adopt positives, and solve the world's problems. We can now tell - instantly - whether anything at all is true or false, despite all opinions about it.

Power vs. Force is a monumental achievement in the study of consciousness that will undoubtedly, if practiced, change the world in profoundly beneficial ways. The painful process of learning by trial and error can now be a thing of the past, and consequently, the evolution of mankind has the potential to make huge leaps and bounds in very little time.

If you're a fan of "The Power of Now" and other such "self-help" style books, or anything on the topics of enlightenment and the nature of the ego, Power vs. Force will change your world in ways you can't even imagine. I HIGHLY recommend this book (and Hawkins' others). It's absolutely vital reading for anybody on the spiritual, philosophical, or even scientific path. If you seek truth of any sort, at any level, this is the ticket.

To give a (very) small taste of what you'll find, here's a few quotes from the book:

"Intelligence and rationality rise to the forefront when the emotionalism of the lower levels is transcended."

"By taking responsibility for the consequences of his own perceptions, the observer can transcend the role of victim to an understanding that 'nothing out there has power over you.'"

"Relatively few people are genuinely committed to peace as a realistic goal, for in their private lives, most people prefer being 'right' at whatever cost to their relationships or themselves."

"At the lower levels of consciousness, propositions are accepted as true even when they're illogical, unfounded, and express tenets neither intellectually provable nor practically demonstrable."

"Facts are accumulated with great effort, but truth reveals itself effortlessly."

"Man's dilemma - now and always - has been that he misidentifies his own intellectual artifacts as reality. But these artificial suppositions are merely the products of an arbitrary point of perception."

"There is only one absolute truth; all the rest are semi-facts spawned from the artifacts of limited perception and positionality."

Hawkins has increasingly become eccentric and self-serving over the years.

He is now a recognized cult leader with extremist views (starting with the country of New Zealand): http://www.cults.co.nz/h.php#hawkinsdr

Sarlo eviscerates him:

Hello,

That cults.co.nz website also says that Buddhism, Hinduism and Judaism are "false religions". It's obvious that website is based on a high degree of ignorance, unawareness and misunderstanding, and that it should not be taken seriously.

Also, that site doesn't speak for the whole country. I highly doubt the general population of New Zealand would be willing to put themselves behind what is expressed on that website. That's only the opinion of one man.

It would be beneficial for us to hear some precise examples of how Hawkins has become "increasingly self-serving", otherwise this too is a completely unfounded statement. Have you ever personally met him? Have you ever personally been to see him talk? Do you live with him? Have you conducted business with him? Or is this all just hearsay based on opinions?

If it is, it's not helping anybody because we are seekers of Truth (that is within), not seekers of opinions & beliefs. Although I don't mean to speak for anybody else here!

You have a great blog! I agree with much of what you say. I would like to comment, though, that Scott Jeffrey was a close student of Hawkins for about a decade, edited two of his books, wrote his biography, and most lately authored a book, Power vs. Truth: Peering Behind the Teachings of David R. Hawkins, where he expresses his personal experience of Hawkins being a cult leader.

Even Hawkins' endorsement from Mother Teresa was not actually an endorsement, if you can believe that! It is worth looking into. Despite the great teachings that Hawkins offered, he is off of my list for good. I will stick with Ramana, Nisargadatta, and others.

Best regards.
