Like Goes to Like

Simple kindness to one’s self and all that lives is the most powerful transformational force of all.  It produces no backlash, has no downside, and never leads to loss or despair.  It increases one’s own true power without exacting any toll.  But to reach maximum power, such kindness can permit no exceptions, nor can it be practiced with the expectation of some selfish gain or reward.  And its effect is as far-reaching as it is subtle.

In a universe where “like goes to like” and “birds of a feather flock together,” we attract to us that which we emanate.  Consequences may come in an unsuspected way.  For instance, we are kind to the elevator man, and a year later, a helpful stranger gives us a hand on a deserted highway.  An observable “this” does not cause an observable “that.” Instead, in reality, a shift in motive or behavior acts on a field that then produces and increased likelihood of positive responses.   Our inner work is like building up a bank account, but one from which we cannot draw at our own personal will.  The disposition of the funds is determined by a subtle energy field, which awaits a trigger to release this power back into our own lives.

  1. I heard Dr. Hawkins say, “Unconditional forgiveness, no exceptions; unconditional love, no exceptions,” so I am practicing on all dogs so that I can feel what that might feel like to love all humans.

  2. Indeed! This is True . Your words , David , and your Work ; and Susan making it still possible …. for it to be here as a dependable Source of inspiration ….

  3. I am re-reading Power vs Force again after having read it years ago. Finding it just as compelling this time as well. I am wondering if you can tell me at what level the consciousness of mankind is now calibrating at. The book I have states 204. I thought I felt a shift the other day and that it got a little better. I hope so.

    Thank you for continuing to give so much to the world.
