In “Transcending Obstacles”, Dr. Hawkins explains the role of thinkingness in our lives, how the ego thrives on the juice it gets out of it, and how to give up the self-indulgence that arises.
The existence of the “experiencer” comes into play as well as the concept of surrender, which Dr. Hawkins discusses in detail. He shows us the way to reach a state of serenity, and how to overcome the obstacles that block Enlightenment and to understand the role of the ego throughout the process.
There is also discussion about the level of happiness; the meaning of commitment to spirituality; humility; strength; attractions and aversions; near-death experiences; fear; guilt; the dualities of shame; and gift of life. He shows how the hypothetical is always wrong and how we deny the Divinity within ourselves.
Dr. Hawkins then gives guidance on how to receive answers for any question we may have. He explains in detail what it means to practice spiritual principles and what one must do to reach higher states of consciousness
In the question-and-answer session at the end of the lecture, Dr. Hawkins goes into greater detail regarding surrender, attachments, karmic “stacks,” and payoffs. He also discusses the benefits of a mentor or spiritual counselor.
And finally he puts the experience of a “good” day and a “bad” day into perspective, showing the benefits of a “bad” day. Dr. Hawkins concludes the presentation by answering more questions from the audience.
