Power vs. Awaited for twenty years, the publication of Power vs. Force by David R. Hawkins, M. 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: He uses theoretical concepts from particle physics, nonlinear dynamics, and chaos theory to support his study of human behavior.
In this hierarchical scale, power increases and force recedes. Power is whole, positive and wholesome. Force is partial, selfish, negative energy and unhealthy. Hawkins pulls everything into his system. His theory he believes is verified by quantum physics non-linear causality. It explains highly successful business people, artists, sports figures. Everything we do generates an energy field and creates a personal record, and "the ripples we create return to us" karma. Hawkins believes his system reveals the evolution of consciousness and this will lead to the salvation of humankind.
Hawkins has a story to tell and he does a good job at weaving it all together. No doubt there's much to be said about the power of positive thinking. If this helps people, that's a good thing. He references various 12 step programs as kindred to his own. For doubters, there's not much room for discussion when he asserts that the three dimensional universe is conventional, whereas the universe has "higher dimensional realities.
There's a beauty in faith and also a danger. Apr 10, Kimber rated it did not like it. This could have been a decent book had Hawkins presented his ideas, many of which are valid, as philosophy. Instead, he presents a so-called system based on kineseology that claims it can detect truth from falsehood.
Simple logic disproves his theory. Anyone can test it and it is wrong. Furthermore, he shows no respect for science. What is even more sneaky is he labels skepticism as being of a "low calibration"--what a convenient way to get any open-minded skeptical investigation off your back! He claims if you don't believe him it is of a lower mind, it's negative, it's false. This is very dangerous thinking indeed.
His followers seem to think he is enlightened and their so-called science claims that only someone who knows enlightenment can describe it. That you can't fake this on an intellectual level.
Why not? You can fake anything. This man is disturbing and a fraud. He has delusions of grandeur which explains why it wouldn't be enough for his ego to simply write a book of philosophy.
His megalomania needs much more attention than that. A true state of enlightenment needs no recognition. Another read by my hubs that is inexplicably linked to my GR account. Today is not that day. Oct 28, Pennie Rumsey rated it really liked it. This idea on p. Force by p. It has to do with motive and it has to do with principle.
Power is always associated with that which supports the significance of life itself and dignifies- ennobles. Force must always be justified, whereas power requires no justification.
Power vs. Force
Force is associated with the partial, power with the whole. Because force automatically creates counter-force, its effect is limited by definition we could say that force is a movement. It goes from here to there, or tries to go from here to there against opposition. Power, on the other hand, is still. It is like a standing field that does not move.
Gravity itself, for instance, does not move against anything. Its power moves all objects with its field, but the gravity itself does not move. Force is incomplete and therefore has to constantly be fed energy. Power is total and complete in itself and requires nothing from outside itself. It makes no demands; it has no needs. Because force has an insatiable appetite, it constantly consumes.
Power, in contrast, energizes, gives forth, supplies and supports. Power gives life and energy. Force takes these away. We notice that power is associated with compassion and makes us fell positively about ourselves.
Force is associated with judgment and makes us feel badly about ourselves. Polarization always implies conflict; its cost, therefore, is always high. Constantly faced with enemies, force requires constant defense.
Power vs. Force Book Review
When we connect with that power, we stand as if in sunshine. When we use force, we step outside that light. The result in the end is something completely different than what we thought the force would do.
Force incites the powers of darkness and the results are within that sphere. This principle is transforming the way that I think and act. Thank you Dr Hawkins! At the time of reading this book I appreciate the overall positive ideas and am glad to have had the exposure to all the various concepts and ideas mentioned in the book - especially the informaiton about the great organization Alcoholics Anonomous and various scientific concepts and theories - good karma there.
I think, however, the desire to back up the theory and prove it all true through Applied Kinesiology, and a logrithimic based scale, etc.
This book was valuable in that it did cause me to recall that AK was once demonstrated to me, as one exercise of many, during a very impactful and to me valuable leadership training seminar several years ago. It seemed reasonable enough during that ordeal I suppose, but since I forgot it I guess I never bought into it. I do agree with Dr.
Hawkins that everything is interconnected, and that the outcomes we all come to know can be and probably are influenced by things nobody realizes. And the darn thing about that is much of the writing is so uplifting and good - and as a fan of Bhudism and Christianity I think the basic idea is right - so why does it even need to try and do that.
Another strange thing is I can't find out anything about Dr. Hawkins on Wikipedia, even though I know he's a big name out there. Sep 02, Mallory Backstrom rated it it was amazing. Picking up this book was probably one of the best things I have ever done for my own growth and development. Hawkins was my mentors mentor and was quite prolific in his own right. I found this book to be mentally invigorating and spiritually resonant. My favorite books are the ones that change the mind of the reader, thereby changing the way they view the world.

This book took my stagnant lens and turned it around and around until I found myself viewing a world I had glazed over with mis-creations.
I did not read it in sequential order, which the author advises in his foreword, and found that to be a revolutionary way to let my spirit guide my learning.
It was a faster read this way, my mind never strayed, and for those of us who require scientific rhetoric to explain spiritual experiences this novel rises to the occasion without reading like an outdated textbook.
Power Versus Force may be the most acute study of the levels of consciousness. Hawkins is a master of science and spirituality, which is too rare of a combination. His synthesis of these two branches of inquiry provide insights that neither mere science nor esoteric mystical text can provide. Hawkins' Map of Consciousness offers a context for understanding how people, cultures, religions, and texts aid or hinder the path. Using muscle testing, Hawkins calibrates various myths, truths, and so Power Versus Force may be the most acute study of the levels of consciousness.
Using muscle testing, Hawkins calibrates various myths, truths, and social systems with a clear intent: If you are serious about spiritual development and its impact on individuals and the planet, this study is a cornerstone, profound in its scope and inspiring in intent.
A masterpiece and landmark study, even for those who finding the science suspect, as Hawkins story and storytelling make the case for bringing heaven to earth one enlightenment at a time.
This is a book the shaped the way I look at everything in life dramatically. It's about what power is, in the sense of, what really affects and changes life, human behavior, and experience of the universe. Here Dr. Hawkins introduces his intelligent Scale of Consciousness. If you have no interest in the "metaphysical" or spirituality, this book review and this book may not be for you. If you are open-minded about spiritual subjects and the application of spiritual sense to business and everyday life, you might find this to be the most important book you have read in some time.
Hawkins has the credentials that should command a fair hearing. He began work in psychiatry in and is currently the director of The Institute for Advanced Theoretical Research. The proposition that Dr. Hawkins presents in this book is "…the human mind is like a computer terminal connected to a giant database. The database is human consciousness itself… with its roots in the common consciousness of all mankind.
Hawkins presents a method, using "kinesiological testing", to get an accurate answer to any question except predicting the future with a "yes or no; true or false" answer by accessing the sum total of human experience.
Kinesiological testing is a simple procedure relating to the mind-body connection that can be performed by two people. With his research assistants, Dr. Hawkins has performed thousands of tests of the reliability of the procedure. I invite you to read about it and try it for yourself. Using this method, Dr. Hawkins has made a logarithmic scale ranking of different levels of consciousness, from shame 20 to courage to enlightenment — 1, According to Dr. Hawkins, effectiveness of activity from the higher states of consciousness is based on power, the influence of good or leadership.

The effectiveness of activity from the lower states of consciousness is based on force. Nov 04, Bruce rated it really liked it Shelves: You don't need to worry about the kinesiology to get the above very awesome stuff out of the book-- just start on page 90 or so, with the descriptions of states of consciousness. As far as kinesiology goes, I do a one person version of it myself, but my results while worthwhile do not allow me to place absolute faith in it. I tried the 2 person version discussed in the book and did not get good results.
The book mentions cases where this can occur, which suggests that there is perhaps a higher order system of knowing that can encompass the varying results kinesiology sometimes generates. I also note a few nagging issues. The Book of Revelations scores poorly, but knowledgeable teachers elsewhere suggest it is a coded description of human enlightenment.
Alcoholics Anonymous is highly lauded, yet statistics suggest the program isn't that effective. A few copy errors where decimal points get misplaced, yielding inconsistent facts between sections. Some mathematical inconsistencies. That said, I read most of this book twice over a few days, it was that compelling. Very worthwhile, if not perfect. Apr 05, Lynnette rated it really liked it. A tough read at times, but many interesting and enlightening concepts.
I think it warrants a re-read just to really wrap my head around the subject. It focuses primarily on defining power which is intrinsically good and destined to succeed and force which is intrinsically "bad" and destined for failure. It explores many spiritual concepts of "good" vs. It discusses differences in "spir A tough read at times, but many interesting and enlightening concepts.
It discusses differences in "spirituality" vs. There's a lot of discussion on "calibrating" ourselves, elements of our history, discerning between "truth" and "falsehood" and discussing the elements of enlightenment. At the end, though, while I enjoyed the ideas, I felt that there should be a big disclaimer: Overall, I would recommend this as a solid work for anyone interested in exploring spiritual growth, especially as it relates to your own internal psychology and how we interact on multiple planes with the rest of the world and humanity.
Jul 09, Duffy Doherty rated it it was amazing. I would give this book 6 stars if I could Dr David R. Hawkins provides the certainty that there is truth; immovable unspinnable and accessible to us all using scientific principles.
We all experience that deep knowing at times in our lives, but frequently our cultural teachings oxymoron?
Well the amazing human nervous system it turns out is connected to the collective consciousness and this book provides methods developed over 30 years of testing that will allow I would give this book 6 stars if I could Well the amazing human nervous system it turns out is connected to the collective consciousness and this book provides methods developed over 30 years of testing that will allow anyone to tap into it!

Hawkins contrasts power vs. In politics, the Constitution of the United States and the Declaration of Independence were both based on spiritual principles from which they derive their power to inspire the world to pursue the democratic ideal.
In business, Wal-Mart is cited as an example of a successful principle-centered organization. If I were to pinpoint the catalyst which brought about the most profound change in my life it would be upon completing Power vs.
Force for the first time, then taking David Hawkins as my spiritual teacher and immersing myself in his teachings. The absolutely astounding life change was far beyond any expectation I ever held consciously in mind, at the time I was content enough with the new found information I had received that is contained within the pages of this book and the world that opened up to me and then whammo!
Struck with the lightning rod of the Truth of God in an experiential manner is one way of describing it. We can say that with sincere devotion to the highest spiritual Truth God brings about astounding change in our lives and no words can fully express my overwhelming thankfulness for this book and subsequent teachings put forth by Doc.
Now I find myself compiling a list of everyone I feel would greatly benefit from this book and paying the blessing forward so to speak. When we gift, what better gift than the gift that is eternal, the gift of spiritual Truth which allows us access to the inner joy that is ever present and unending. Thank you again Doc and Susan for the teachings, and a special thank you to Susans arm! Only logged in customers who have purchased this product may leave a review.
