This “Spiritual Traps” October 2005 video contains a moving experience of bagpipers playing for Dr. Hawkins and the audience! Giving us a taste of how valor feels at level 535, Dr. Hawkins then spoke about the emotions that come forth at this level and their true meaning. True to the title of this lecture, Dr. Hawkins explains the many spiritual traps that a student may befall and how they can block our progress towards Enlightenment. Some of these traps are mystique, mentalization, and becoming enamored with the “spiritual”. He also talks about the error in putting the source of our survival on something outside ourselves. In addition, there is discussion of the value of love versus possession, and the trap of rejecting the true source of happiness, which is within. He shows us the advantage of being okay with conditions as they are and how to get to that place. Dr. Hawkins discusses many, many concepts in this inclusive lecture. Here are just a few of the additional subjects discussed: what gives our thoughts power; how things manifest; how to remove anxiety in our lives; why we do not transcend the ego; the difference between animal energy and spiritual energy; the power of what we hold in mind; how to be truly happy; individual will power; what happens the instant we surrender completely to God, and why death is not a possibility.
