Dr. Hawkins begins this “God, Religion, and Spirituality” Dec 2005 cd set by sharing that when we discover there is something beyond the mind, the spiritual quest starts. It can be an arduous undertaking, and to assist us, he wrote the book, Transcending the Levels of Consciousness,” which reveals how to make a spiritual ideal an experiential reality. He also lets us know that kinesiology is very useful as a research tool but is not essential for enlightenment, so if it doesn’t work for us, we shouldn’t worry about it.
He reminds us that consciousness, evolution, and creation are still evolving. He explains the essence of power, along with spiritual integrity and why life can only originate from life. He also gives a brief review of kinesiology.
Dr. Hawkins talks about the nature of happiness, reviews calibrations of various religious church offices and various religious denominations. He discusses a variety of spiritual practices and their characteristics. He talks about various yogas, the different Buddhistic sects, and several spiritual texts. He covers the White Brotherhood, Indigo Children, Celestial Prophecy, the Da Vinci Code, and more.
He talks about being clear of guilt with regard to erroneous belief systems, and how we pick things up from the unconscious belief systems of mankind. He lets us know that there would be no point to this incarnation if the future could be predicted, and why this world of karmic opportunity is so valuable to us. Dr. Hawkins continues with the calibrations of the components of the Bible, the calibrations of historical and modern spiritual sites, and explains why they are at those levels.
At the end of the lecture, Dr. Hawkins answers questions from the audience in detail. The topics here include a discussion about the common experience of Grief and how to release it; the emergence of potentiality as actuality; the definition of Compassion and how it allows us to see the Divinity of all Creation; the purpose and benefits of A Course in Miracles; a person’s karmic opportunities and choices and how not to interfere with that; sexual appeal, addiction, 12-step groups, and prayer; the possible disadvantages of intervention; desire as a negation; wantingness; work choices; and benevolence.
Other answers relate to karmic destiny; the act of surrender; the Garden of Eden; artistic activity; staying in the world vs. leaving the world; the role of projection; why spiritual intention pulls up negative karma; awareness and continuity, and more.
