David R. Hawkins is brilliant, spiritual and eloquent. I especially like the new forward on this book. The beginning of the book is a little heavy for a lightweight like me ... but he takes you on a wonderful journey. For a non-linear person like me, this book totally works. Each chapter is a jewel, waiting to be plucked. This writing gives me great hope for the future of mankind.
I knew about applied kinesiology before (see Touch for Health by John & Matthew Thie), but this book is taking it to a higher realm.
Energy is ALL there is. Get used to the idea.
There is a classification scale of 0-1000 level of consciousness that many teachers and policymakers will resist, in part because many of them will fall low on this scale in today's society, and their counterparts 200 years ago would have probably ranked much higher. This type of analysis should be an essential part of any public or private school education, and even assigned to politicians running for office. A charter school I am advising is considering a goal graduating students that score 500 on this scale. It would indeed be an achievement to see a society operating at that level (most current political campaign slogans and many commercial advertisements are near the bottom of this scale).
I recommend reading this book for anyone interested in producing good people and good societies in a post-doctrinaire (whether of a religious fundamentalist, rationalist, or ideological variety), and post-pluralistic/relativist society.
