Dr. David R. Hawkins is a nationally renowned psychiatrist, physician, researcher and lecturer, as his listing in Who's Who in America amply attests. He has been a guest of MacNeil/Lehrer, Barbara Walters and The Today Show. His previous book, Orthomolecular Psychiatry, co-authored with Nobelist Linus Pauling, sold out completely. By the end of 1995, word-of mouth sales of POWER vs. FORCE were increasing by ten per cent a week.
In Hawkins book, Power vs
Force, he explains his research that showed how 15% of the world population
is holding the balance at the level of Courage-and-above
on his "Map of Consciousness" -- calibrated energy levels 1-1000 -- for the
The brilliant insights and revelations from his research brings us hope for the future and Earth's outcome.
Were it not for the
counterbalances, man would self-destruct out of the sheer mass of it's unopposed
negativity. The difference in power between a loving thought (10-35 million megawatts) and a fearful
thought (10-750 million microwatts) is so enormous as to be beyond the capacity
of the human imagination to easily comprehend.
POWER vs. FORCE is the culmination of twenty years' research. In it, David Hawkins conclusively proves the ability of kinesiological testing to distinguish truth or falsehood in any statement -- an astonishing idea in itself -- with far reaching implications for every aspect of human life. He goes on to demonstrate the application of his method (explained clearly for the layman) in commerce, art, sport, etc. Then he explains its spiritual application, as a path to enlightenment.
Beyond this, Dr. Hawkins demonstrates
kinesiological calibration as a tool for assessing value and motive, revealing
the hidden determinants of human behavior, and establishing a Map of
Consciousness that illuminates the spiritual ladder we must follow as a race and
The volume concludes with compendious notes and bibliography, and, finally, a fascinating narrative of the author's own journey from atheism to spiritual enlightenment.
Hawkins' book provides has a simple "low-tech" technique of muscle testing (kinesiology) that has proven effective in more than a million test subjects over 20 years. His book, POWER VS. FORCE, is a must reading for all who would understand the BIG SHIFT going on in the consciousness of humanity on or "global village" of instant-everywhere-interactive Net reality.
According to Hawkins, the real breakthrough point for accelerated spiritual growth for people calibrates at the 200 level on his 1000 scale. This is the level he calls "COURAGE" and I refer to as "fearless faith" in the LOVE-centric process of evolutionary ascent of one's soul matrix "habit" of believing, thinking, feeling and acting.
The great value of Hawkins's "top ten" book -- as many prominent luminaries have called it -- is his technique for objectifying that which is subjective. This is the foundation of the "know thyself" (self-mastery) process whereby you become CONSCIOUS of HOW you are conscious. With this "feedback" from CONSCIENCE, the evolutionary ascent process is liberated and accelerated.
In the words of Mahatma Gandhi:
One individual at level 600-PEACE counterbalances 10 million individuals below 200 (COURAGE)
One individual at level 500-LOVE counterbalances 750,000 individuals below 200 (COURAGE)
One individual at level 400 (REASON) counterbalances 400,000 individuals below 200 (COURAGE)
One individual at level 300-400 (WILLINGNESS-FORGIVENESS) counterbalances 90,000 individuals below 200 (COURAGE).
What we see and hear as negativity and destruction is simply the dross coming to the surface as Our Beloved Planet goes through the throws of purification and transformation.
How is this possible? Consciousness is "holographic" -- holistically connected at inner levels via DNA "transceiver" dynamics explained at www.heartcom.org/cosmogenesis.htm . All it takes to "raise the standard" for outpicturing that awareness is "in-sight" (inner sense) of the process involved. The LOVE Model provides a "framework" for that understanding and Hawkins' method can objectify it for benchmarking progress with the process "geometrized" with LOVE.
The Force is seeing us through. Make your life a prayer. Be in the PEACE of
greater LOVE, REASON AND FORGIVENESS all ways... always.

“Power is of two kinds.
One is obtained by fear of punishment
and the other by arts of love.
Power based on love is a thousand times
more effective and permanent
than power derived from fear of punishment.”
- Mahatma Gandhi
