I loved this book. I was not going to purchase it at first glance, then I received an email endorsement from Dr Wayne Dyer. I am so glad I brought this book. Dr Hawkins has achieved a state of enlightment (unlike many other spiritual authors) and has returned to teach the rest of us about the nature of our ego and how we transcend it. I find The Course in Miracles can be preachy and somewhat defeating in it's text on the ego. But Dr Hawkin's material is inspiring and very specific on the ways we diminish the power of our ego. Unlike many spiritual books, he gives you the actual tools to use as a spiritual "doer" not just a spiritual "seeker". There are so many jewels in this little book, it will be a lifetime companion.

Having thoroughly enjoyed Power vs. Force, I was interested in this book especially due to its phenomenal title, 'Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self'. I like the fact that it was designed to be a pocket companion and addresses deep topics such as the nature of the ego, mind and consciousness. These fundamental issues that impact the quality of our life experience have to stay present in our consciousness for us to be aware of their role in our daily lives. While many of the passages are short and can be read quickly, they can evoke a considerable amount of reflection.

I really like the way Scott Jeffrey organized the teachings of David Hawkins into just three parts -- The "self" (Ego/Mind), Transcending the self, and Realizing the Self. Notice the "self" changes from lower case to upper case upon realization, a subtle yet significant distinction. I also like the Glossary at the end which outlines what he means by many complex terms such as Consciousness, Ego, Duality, Enlightenment, etc. This is very helpful for those who are getting started on their personal spiritual journey.

A great collection of quotes and passages that can inspire people to turn inward, be more introspective and raise their awareness in life.

I am usually hesitant to purchase a compiliation of an author's previous writings and teachings, but in the case of David Hawkins' work, it has proven to be a good thing. Frankly, I feel Dr. Hawkins veered off course somewhat with his emphasis upon "muscle testing" as a means of divination. Yet his teaching and writings are replete with pointers to That which cannot be spoken. Anyone with some experience in the realm of spirit will recognize the brilliant nuggets of truth throughout Dr. Hawkin's work. This little book ("pocket sized") is truly a gem. Many thanks to Scott Jeffrey for editing and compiling this. There is no touting of kinesiologic testing here. "Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self" is one of the finest works of its kind, period. It fits into my back pocket, but there is nothing small about its content. This is one power-packed little book. If you thirst after Spirit, you won't be sorry you bought this book. You will be grateful that you did.

First, these are quotes taken from the writings of David R Hawkins. However, be aware that Scott Jeffries, who did the work of compilation, gave himself permission to do some minor editing here and there, as he says in the introduction. He didn't feel it necessary to reference his quotes, thereby removing the context. Both of these lower the quality of the book for me. I own all of Dr. David R Hawkins books, heard him lecture live, I appreciated and learned from his wisdom. I would suggest you buy any of Dr. Hawkins other books.

The book "Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self (Contemplations from the teachings of David R Hawkins) reminded me of mouthwash.

Mouthwash???

When I take my nightly rinse of Listerine sometimes I have to dilute it. In its natural state it's a bit too strong for me. Though my dentist tells me its most effective if I don't dilute it.

"Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self" contains a series of descriptions of pure Truth statements, organized in short paragraphs, on the nature of the Ego. Strong stuff. It's good, but just like mouthwash, it is best taken in small doses. It's not a book to rush through, rather I recommend reading a paragraph or two at a time, setting the book aside, and contemplating what you just read.

Here is a passage from the book that resonated with me:

"Realization is a progressive process. Spiritual progress is hastened by understanding the true nature of the ego. It is not an enemy to be attacked or defeated, nor is it an evil to be vanquished. It is dissolved by compassionate understanding."

"The ego secretly loves and clings to the position of victimhood and extracts a distorted pleasure and grim justification from pain and suffering."

When I find my thoughts going down a path of being "the victim", I can think "OK, that's my Ego talking. It's not bad - just my Ego. Recognize that and replace it with more positive, life affirming messages."

Here's another:

"The first evidence of the Presence of God is an awakening of curiosity or interest in spiritual matters. That is the crack in the ego's dam. When the person begins to desire or practice spiritual goals or pursue spiritual information, the Presence is already taking hold of his life."

Whew!
