I'm beginning to wonder if kinesiology isn't as absolute as Dr. Hawkins claims. Don't get me wrong. I find his writings on the subject of spirituality as fascinating and as accurate as I can imagine. His spiritual teachings strongly resonate within me. I also greatly appreciate the sections with calibrations of religion, spiritual teachings, and spiritual teachers.

However, as a moderately liberal person, I find his use of kinesiology as a means to certify his political position more than a little crass. Despite the fact that he carefully assures that the calibrations don't represent his political views, he proceeds to "explain" the results of his research and in doing so reveals that, yes, they are most *definitely* his views! This is part of what I find rather disingenuous - even though I find I agree with 95% of his dissertations on the problems of society and its lack of responsibility and victim/perpetrator scenarios. The difference being that he seems to be blaming it almost entirely on liberal views.

Realistically, it seems highly unlikely to me that any specific political position can be 100% right or wrong. Yet Dr. Hawkins' research appears to be saying exactly the opposite. Apparently, conversatives are right - 100% right, absolutely correct, not a chance of error there at all! Uh-huh!

In fact, every single political and social calibration seems to validate the positions of conservatives on...well...everything! Liberal views are just flat out inferior in every way, socially, fiscally, domestically, foreign policy-wise. Just name a way, and they are inferior.

Sorry, but that just seems a little extreme to me.

I know I was capable of influencing the results of kinesiology whenever, at least, the results were deeply personal.

"Truth vs Falsehood" is Hawkins' 4th book. In my mind, it is his greatest gift yet, but not in the sense that one might think. This will be explained in the closing. I will also preface by saying that I am in no way political. Truth is all that I am interested in.

In Hawkins' previous 3 books, the kinesiological response was portrayed as infallible. His language was very absolute in its tone, giving the technique more credibility than it has ever received. Being so absolute with one's tone was the first obvious clue. When one becomes absolute in their tone, they often put an inordinate amount of faith in something outside themselves and overlook the inherent limitations. This is true for everything from religious absolutism to the mythical cure-all in medicine. The person who uses the absolute tone acts as if your salvation lies with this one particular thing.

I am a traditional naturopath. I was using kinesiology before Hawkins' books, and I am closely connected to practitioners of kinesiology who've used it in excess of 20 years. An observant and curious practitioner quickly realizes that the intent of both the testee and tester influences response. In some cases, a strong-willed practitioner who thinks he knows the cause of imbalance or dis-ease is affecting testee response and in essence using kinesiology to validate his own opinions and beliefs, albeit unknowingly. He will get the positive response he desires, whereas the practitioner with no vested interest in anything except the truth will get a different response on the same testee.

It has been difficult for me to bridge the gap between Hawkins' theory/ doctoral thesis on his use of kinesiology and the understanding that most experienced practitioners of kinesiology have.

Almost 10 years have passed since I wrote the review below. During this decade I've learned more than I (previously thought I) would have cared to know about the "truth" of this book, the ineffectiveness of MT, and how the late Dr. Hawkins himself lived much of his life in a way many would seriously question. I was so inspired after first reading TvF, naively assuming all of it was absolute truth, written by a true man of God, I moved to Sedona, AZ in 2008, where Doc (as we locals called him) lived, to be near him and others drawn to his teachings. The details of my 2 years there are not important. In all honesty, it wasn't that it was all bad - some of it was actually quite uplifting. The few brief one-on-one encounters I had with Doc, the last one in particular, left me feeling this was a sweet, caring man - and, I now know, a sweet, caring man with the same human frailties most of us have. The biggest issue I had was not so much with Doc but with Veritas Publishing, the company that published and sold his books. He turned management of this company over to a close relative, and I witnessed one good person after another being persecuted (and profoundly hurt) by this president who seemed to live in a state of hysterical paranoia. One truly sweet woman was threatened with a lawsuit simply because she so loved Doc and his teachings, she wanted to share it with others through workshops she planned to offer. Another young man was offered a job to work for Veritas. He quit his current job but shortly afterward was told Veritas had changed it's mind, and would not hire him after all. No reason was given; he was now unemployed. Many good people who worked for or with Veritas ended up leaving either heartbroken or enraged. Several labeled this president as "toxic.Read more ›
