Power vs. Force, The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior (sc), Author’s Official Authoritative Edition

Awaited for twenty years, the publication of Power vs. Force by 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.

This author’s boyhood spiritual experience of the “Infinite Presence” has directed his life’s work as a healing psychiatrist, a healing that transcends his patients’ physical world. Dr. Hawkins’s basic thesis focuses on the “Ultimate Presence” – the source from which individuals can reach their highest potential. He uses theoretical concepts from particle physics, nonlinear dynamics, and chaos theory to support his study of human behavior.

On the referenced Scale of the Levels of Consciousness, which calibrates the levels of Truth from 1 to 1,000, Power vs. Force calibrates at 850.

The book is divided into 3 parts.

Part 1 describes the process of moving toward one’s ultimate potential. Dr. Hawkins then discusses his theory by explaining the progression from negative energy fields or attractors to positive attractors, which ultimately lead to pure consciousness. Based on 20 years of research, he has developed an intriguing Map of Consciousness that, in essence, charts one’s spiritual growth. The map outlines a listing of attitudes and emotions with corresponding calibrated numerical values. Feelings such as blame, anxiety, and hate fall into negative energy attractor fields; affirmation, trust, and optimism are examples of positive attractors that are life enhancing and ultimately lead to pure consciousness. By applying principles from kinesiology and acupuncture, the author explains the association between positive attractor fields and one’s health, well-being and creativity.

Part 2 presents an extensive listing of adjectives that connote power-versus-force patterns of human attitudes. It provides a basis for examining the quality of human interactions and relationships in various life endeavors, e.g., the marketplace, sports, the arts, health, and wellness.

Part 3 focuses on the evolution and current state of man’s consciousness, which Hawkins suggests is at the threshold of power after centuries of force. He posits that an individual’s power and level of consciousness can be enhanced through greater integrity, understanding, and compassion.

Readers will find themselves challenging methodology or various suppositions and being intrigued by others as the author relates the world of spirituality to the hidden dimensions of human behavior.

From the Author of Power vs. Force:

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.

    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!
