The publication of Power vs. Force by Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., reveals to the general public secret information heretofore only shared by the author with certain Nobelists and world leaders. Analyzing the basic nature of human thought and consciousness itself, the author makes available to everyone the key to penetrating the last barrier to the advancement of civilization and science and resolving the most crucial of all human dilemmas: how to instantly determine the truth or falsehood of any statement or supposed fact. All human endeavors have the common goal of understanding or influencing human experience. To this end, man has developed numerous descriptive and analytical disciplines: morality, philosophy, psychology, and so on. Regardless of what branch of inquiry one starts from (philosophy, political theory, theology) all avenues of investigation eventually converge at a common meeting point: the quest for an organized understanding of the nature of pure consciousness. To explain that which is simple can be difficult indeed. Much of this book is devoted to the process of making the simple obvious. If we can understand even one simple thing in depth, we will have greatly expanded our capacity for comprehending the nature of the universe and life itself.
This material in this book is wonderful, however, the author is a better author than reader - and I've found it difficult to get through for that reason alone. The preview on iTunes (unless its been re-narrated since I've purchased this a couple of years ago) what I believe to be the forward, which is read by someone else - a woman, however the bulk of the book is narrated by Dr. Hawkins who's speaking is dry and despite the interesting topic, looses me every time. In fact, the reason I am on this books page is that I was hoping its perhaps since been re-narrated since I had purchased it. It still states that it's read by the author - the preview on iTunes is misleading since it is not the person that reads the bulk of the book.
i read this book from beginning to end in 3 days! i couldn't put it down. it has been awhile since i have got this excited about a book. THIS IS A MUST READ. i just finished his 2nd book The Eye Of The I and i'm starting his 3rd book I: Reality and Subjectivity.
Dr. Hawkins is the most advanced teacher of Enlightenment! His work is brilliant, profound and deeply insightful! It is difficult for the ego to digest but if you get over the internal resistance it will uplift you to inspirational levels of joy, love and peace!
