Man thinks he lives by virtue of the forces he can control, but in fact, he is governed by power from unrevealed sources, power over which he has no control. Because power is effortless, it goes unseen and unsuspected. Force is experienced through the senses; power can be recognized only through inner awareness.
It is a direct path to Enlightenment in which each internal progression of love and integrity uplifts the whole of existence: "We change the world not by what we say or do but as a consequence of what we have become."
Substantial progress is made, Dr. Hawkins suggests, by practicing any true principle, such as: "Be kind and forgiving to everything and everyone, including yourself, at all times without exception."

That is the reason I purchased the Audible version so I could listen to it while walking. David's writing is powerful but his reading is not lively. You will not regret purchasing the printed version. In fact, by the time you finish reading it you will notice a marked difference in your life already. But stay away from the audio version.
I had to stop reading after few pages because I couldn't take the hocus pocus the author was getting into. This review could turn into a book of its own if I were to discuss all the tricks/strategies the author has used to trick people into believing him but I will mention few:
1. He associates his ideas to chaos theory and scientific discovery to give it a tone of authority. This is a trick a lot of people use to make others believe their ideas/research is real.
2. He has 10000000s of reasons why results may not show up like his but the results that did show up what he was expecting he doesn't mention anything about those. For instance, if your number doesn't match what he was expecting then you are lying or you are married or you are wearing a ring or that you are controlling your emotions. But what about the people that got the exact number he was expecting weren't some of those married? Weren't some of them lying? Weren't some of them wearing rings or perfume? Yes he mentions having a perfume can distort the result as well but apparently when results are what he was expecting it's not a big deal.
3. There's a lot of scientific jargon which I believe fools a lot of people thinking that what the author is saying is probably real.
4. There are also some fancy quotes like one I read was: "Truth cannot be disproved by falsehood anymore than light can be by darkness." Ya right but you (the author) can prove why others are not truthful by mentioning 100000 reasons why they didn't get the results you were expecting but no reasons why you got results from same people that met all those 100000 reasons which caused results to be negative for others? I could also say that truth cannot be disproved by giving reasons to confirm your bias.
This book is loaded with confirmation bias, and sneaky tactics to make you believe in this bs.
The only good thing about this book is that I like the "Title" and also strategies/tactics the author uses to trick people into believing his bs ideas.
Anyone who thinks this book is worth reading should really spend some time pondering over how they make decisions and how they process information. While I won't get into the epistemology of knowledge or how to use rhetorics to trick and fool people what I do suggest is that people read these two books:
How We Know What Isn't So: The Fallibility of Human Reason in Everyday Life by Thomas Gilovich
Psychology of Intelligence Analysis Paperback by Richards J. Heuer
If you are reading my review after reading few pages of this book then throw it away and get those two books I have suggested it will change your life and how you make decisions. Don't let sunk cost fallacy get to you.
There are far better books. As a great philosopher once said, a tree that falls makes more noise than a forest that grows. These type of books make a lot of noise but that's it, it's NOISE.
It's hard for me to say if this would be a great resource for someone who is new to these subjects. However, if you have exposure to this vein of thought, this is an excellent read. I would expect, that if you are interested enough to have made it as far as reading reviews, it's probably a good pick.

David R Hawkins
Here is the author on the subject of Universe (page 376):
"There may seem to be an infinite number of dimensions to our universe. The familiar three-dimensional universe of conventional consensus is only one, and is merely an illusion created by our senses. The space between planetary bodies is not empty, but filled with a sea of energy; the potential energy in one square inch can be said to be as great at as that of the whole mass of the physical universe."
. . . and so on and so forth!
Note, Hawkins selects surface rather than volume "between planetary bodies", though why he should choose items from the solar system rather than inter-galactic space is a little modest on his part!
The author of this review (a practicing astronomer of 60 years experience) produced a 74-page book entitled "What Universe?" that included the script from a 50-minute lecture for BBC Radio Orkney given in February 2017, and that is still accessible online. Here, universe is conceived as a process and NOT a structure
Sticks with you long after finishing
Picks up after first 80 pages which worth skimming through quickly. Too much on how experiments conducted and scored. But the findings and conclusions from the research are outstanding
