If the world applied 10% of the content of this book... we would be living in a Heaven beyond imagination already.
If you read more than one of Hawkins' books, you will find that he repeats his foundational concepts in each book. I find this helpful to "cement" the concepts more solidly. These can be skipped over easily and Hawkins recommends this for some readers.
Certainly, if we all applied ourselves to the principles that Hawkins espouses, our lives and culture would improve. Hawkins is not the only one saying and proposing this.
This book can enhance one's search for truth with a few warnings.
1. Dr. Hawkins talks about the calibration level of commercial tobacco versus organically grown tobacco. However, he does not say what form the tobacco being calibrated was in. Tobacco in the form of a commercial cigarette and organically grown tobacco in the form of the herb itself (in which use it is not smoked into the lungs) would calibrate at quite different levels since tobacco is an herb that can be used as a compress for bruises and for use on sick cattle. This should be better clarified in the book.
2. Dr. Hawkins talks about "hard drugs" versus "soft drugs." This discussion also did not "ring true" with me since even things as benign as artificial sweeteners present in something that is supposed to be good for you like whole wheat bread calibrates low. It is my feeling that anything that can alter or interfere with your agency or free will will have injurious affects on spiritual well-being, and while it may not cause physical addiction, will cause psychological addiction and a false sense of well-being that is shortly lived. This will hold an individual back from being able to reach his/her highest level of consciousness or enlightenment.
3. Dr. Hawkins indicates that most human beings will not increase their level of consciousness more than 5 points on his 1 to 1000 consciousness scale during a life time. This concept is discouraging if you let it be. While this may be true for most human beings, one must not take this to mean that all individuals are limited to this. We are all on an upward progression or continuum to become more like God with the potential to become one with God and this statement should not allow one's pursuit to reach the highest level of spiritual enlightenment to be discouraged.
With these things in mind, this book is a good vehicle for raising one's level of consciousness. I encourage the truth seeker to read this book while using prayer and meditation to assist you in discerning and gleaning truth. Understand that there may be some things that may not "ring true" for you, but this should not discourage you from reading the book and gleaning what you can from it.
