Description

The publication of Power vs. Force by Sir 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.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Great book, good audiobook....

This is a really interesting book. Extremely thought-provoking, and has the potential to be life-changing. However, there are 2 things to bear in mind: 1) The rational of the book is based 100% on applied kinesology (i.e. muscle testing). If you don't accept this or have an open mind, the whole premise falls down (I actually tried it as he suggests, and was positively suprised to see that it seems to work); 2) As other reviewers have pointed out, the author does not have a clear speaking voice and has a very monotone presentation. This can make it a struggle to listen to. For me, the first (and most technical chapter) was extremely hard to get through, and then (due to both the easier material and getting used to the voice, I guess) it wasn't much of a problem and I stopped noticing.

Good book – poor narrator

I have read Power vs. Force the book version before and am now listening to the Audible download of the book. Quick advice: don’t listen to the audio book – it is awful. The audio book is 8 hours and 10 minutes long and the narrator (Mr. Hawkins himself) should stick to writing books and NOT reading them. I can only listen to 30 minutes at a time without losing interest due to his voice.

In a nutshell power is good, force is bad. To find out where anything exists along the spectrum of consciousness, one needs to do muscle testing. Using basic Kinesiology muscle testing you can determine where an object, person or pretty much anything rates on his scales.

Hawkins developed a "Map of Consciousness" which rates the various power levels of ideas and attitudes. This map gives the reader the ability to examine his or her beliefs and attitudes and determine where their power level is currently.

Power is the power of Gandhi to liberate India without blood-shed; Force is personified by Stalin. Power serves others, whereas force is self-serving. Power is a by-product of developing self-confidence. Power is not used for control or domination. Power vs. Force is also expressed in the writings known as the Tao Te Ching. Power gives life and energy; force takes these away.

So I do have a couple of problems with his work. One is that his own book “Power vs. Force”, according to Hawkins, calibrates at 850, which is higher than the Bible or the Koran, or indeed almost anything else ever written by a human being. I was also very bummed to learn that heavy metal music rates really low. I love to workout to heavy metal music – if I had only known it was making my muscles weak the whole time. :~)

I have mixed feelings about the book, but found the content interesting, particularly to anyone interested in consciousness, meditation, etc.

David should have hired a Professional!

Oh my...I LOVED this book in hard copy and was so excited to see it on Audible. In fact I was so excited I couldn't wait and paid the high price in advance of my monthy credits! I am bummed, I can't even get through a few minutes without having to rewind as I lose concentration. The content is amazing, but the author's reading is HORRIBLE. This is the only material I have ever considered a waste of money in over 3 years and over 150 titles I have purchased. I am so sad. I wish I could get my money back!

Narration not that bad

The narration is not really as bad as I expected based on previous reviews. The information is valuable enough to give it more than a minute's listen before giving up. For example, I got used to his voice after about 30 minutes and I retained lots of the material. Despite the voice I'm looking forward to listening to the whole 8 hours again.

The basic ideas are unique as far as spiritual teaching goes, and quite convincing and easy to observe in daily experience.

A powerful, illuminating book

I read this book a few years ago, and looked forward to the Audible version. Dr. Hawkins' reading didn't let me down. The timbre of his voice and the warmth of his spirit comes through clearly. There is so much wisdom in this book that practically every paragraph is underlinable. I specially liked his beginning line, "The skillful are not obvious. They appear to be simple-minded. Those who know this, know the patterns of the Absolute."

Great Book - but don't let him read his own work

Would you listen to Power vs. Force again? Why?

OK here's the thing...I LOVE the book. But I can't listen to more than a few minutes. Please DO yes yes record his other books...but hire a narrator. His voice has a soporific effect on me even though I am VERY interestd.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Power vs. Force?

The ways to verify truth so objectively and accurately are priceless!

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dr. David R. Hawkins?

I don't know the readers well enough to say, but definitely NOT the author. Sorry! I have HUGE respect for the author!

Any additional comments?

I really want his other books to be available on Audible so I can read them. I'm mostly blind and print isn't an easy option for me.

Freedom !!!

The truth and beauty of this work is so spectacular that just listening to the voice of David Hawkins can raise your consciousness. Level's of distortion in our thinking drop away in the face of truth. This work can change you... just get it and listen.

Disturbing Yet Enlightening

I've repeated this book several times. I can't seem to put it away. Ever wonder why some people command power over you? Ever consider using force to counter a power over you? Ever wonder why it blows up in your face, and fails miserably? Human behavior and interaction is based on so many variables I've always thought it impossible to derive an equation that makes sense. But here are 48 equations, or rules that shed light on the mystery of the basics of human social hierarchy. They work. They've been working for centuries.

Poorly Produced

Many times it is wonderful to have the author read his book whereas who better to articulate and emphasize the main points than the person who wrote them. This is not one of those times! Whoever produced this book made a serious mistake allowing the author to read this work. Even the female voice on it sounds amateurish, I must say. If you want this information (and it may be valuable), buy the book, but don't waste an audio credit on it. Chances are you will turn it off after a short time Im sorry to say. Simply unlistenable.

Tiefgreifende Informationen, die Zeit zum Verdauen

Es war am Anfang etwas schwer sich an die eher monotone Stimme des Sprechers zu gewöhnen, aber die Materie ist so interessant, dass ich dann fast nicht aufhören wollte zu hören, obwohl ich nach einer Pause wieder leicht in die Materie einsteigen konnte.

Mhhhhh

The author is mumbling and its clear that he is not a professional speaker. Still he could show more passion reading his own book. The topic is rather complex and it's easy to loose track of the monotone way he speaks.

I suggest reading the actual book and avoid this audio book.

good book but hard to listen - bad reader

super valuable content.
unfortunately the author of the book decided to speak / read the audio book himself.
he mumbles like a slightly drunk old grandpa. very hard to listen too.

please check your ego and get a professional speaker / reader so the consciousness level of the audio book is as high as the physical book.

The narrator speaks as if drunk

It has been extremely hard to listen to. The author should have paid a professional to read his book, because he voice sounds as if he is drunk or in drugs, making it very difficult to listen to and to understand what is he talking.
There is a woman who says the titles of the chapters and she speaks clear. She should have read the whole book.
I don´t know if the content was good or not, because I kept in wishing that he keeps quiet and somebody else speaks. I bought the Audiobook because Dr Wayne Dyer recommended it, but honestly, maybe he did it in a time when he knew nothing about kinesiology. But as a kinesiologist myself, this book gives absolutely no new information nor anything that can be worthy. Maybe, if the narrator speaks without a handkerchief in his mouth, one could get something better out of it

content is very good, but badly narrated

In my opinion the narrator doesn't mark the words with the right tone. Everything sounds very monotonic. The content in the book is fantastic and very valuable, but they could have used a better narrator.
