Présentation de l'éditeur

Reveals a breakthrough in documenting a new era of human knowledge. Only in the last decade has a science of Truth emerged that, for the first time in human history, enables the discernment of truth from falsehood. Presented are discoveries of an enormous amount of crucial and significant information of great importance to mankind. Truth and Reality, Dr. Hawkins states, have no secrets, and everything that exists now or in the past- even a thought- is identifiable and calibratable from the omnipresent field of Consciousness itself.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating but raises questions about kinesiology for me. 3 septembre 2005
Par M. Phillips - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
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. My brother and I tried to produce my own calibration level. It resulted in the most random and unpredictable results of the entire session - while everything else we did could be and was independently verified as completely accurate! Perhaps Dr. Hawkins' own personal presence is so strong that his own personal opinion (as a life-long octogenarian conservative) influences the results of his own students. However, that might be considered "sophistry" in his argument.

After all, his results seem to contradict the teachings and views of many other enlightened teachers (many of whom are verified as enlightened by his own calibrations), including my own guru - Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev.

Not only that, his own calibrations of the chapters on politics and society calibrate much lower than most other chapters on spirituality, albeit still within the level of enlightenment (600+).

My conclusion is simply this: when one is talking about the spirit and of God, it is easier to calibrate a universal truth. The deeper one delves into the realms of duality, the more and more subjective the results become. In any case, regardless of what political view is the subject, they calibrate with integrity unless of an extreme nature. In addition, his results equally condemn fascism and right-wing fundamentalism. This at least partially reassures me that he is on a "middle path" as the Buddha suggests.

Therefore, I've decided to take his political chapters with a grain of salt and generally skim past the political aspects of his book, having read them once, and concentrate on his spiritual teachings, as well as the teachings of my own teacher. After all, I didn't get into a spiritual life to follow politics, but instead to transcend the dualistic game-playing of the majority of society.

If his book is helpful to some people because of its political views, then I'm glad, but generally speaking, it was probably a mistake to delve into the territory at all, as I suspect it will divide and turn more people away than it will unify or invite.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 An Unexpected Gift to Hawkins' Readers 15 octobre 2005
Par Michael B - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
"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. Nearly all experienced practitioners simply don't find the technique to be infallible. Certain criteria must be met for accurate response. Those criteria are training, impartiality, and the sincere and humble desire to put absolute truth above all things. Truth is absolute, but the technique is not. Remaining neutral is an ongoing challenge for the practitioner.

I am not familiar with the testing methods used for Hawkins' doctoral thesis "Quantitative and Qualitative Calibration of the Levels of Consciousness". However, for it to withstand any scientific scrutiny, both the tester and testee would have to be without any knowledge on the subject matter. There would also have to be at least 20 different testers for the 3000+ test subjects, with each tester coming up with their own test responses to a given list of questions. Responses would not be compared until all testers have compiled their findings. For his thesis, something along these lines was most likely used.

Throughout "Power vs. Force", a healthy skepticism was maintained towards Hawkins putting so much faith in this technique. Part of this was based on an inability to get the same responses he was getting. The information presented in "The Eye of the I" and "I" was absolutely astounding, and skepticism was temporarily set aside. Apparently, his intent was pure and sincere enough to allow him to experience absolute truth on spiritual inquiry. Much of this can be attributed to his description of a life-changing experience. He was atheist (or possibly agnostic... don't remember which), hit a major crisis in his life, and finally called out in total humility to be shown the truth of God. I feel his pure intent allowed him to access the truth he did.

However, once Hawkins gained confidence in the technique, he apparently fell into the trap of thinking he could divorce himself from influencing response. The methods used for gleaning the information found in "Truth vs Falsehood" would surely not withstand any scientific scrutiny. The simple fact that the subject matter was familiar to the tester(s) and testee(s) disqualifies it. Asking about the nature of life, death, and other unknown spiritual matters is not the same as asking about one's perceived reality, which one already has strong opinions and emotions about and attachments to. Both testers and testees would have to be completely unfamiliar with the line of inquiry to have any guarantee of neutrality.

Within 30 seconds of opening "Truth vs Falsehood", it was clear something wasn't right. Hawkins' 3 previous books have helped us to discern truth from falsehood more clearly. Many of us have reached a place where now we `just know' the truth. It is often a clear gut feeling, and at that point the kinesiological response seems unnecessary. In a way, it turns out the technique was only a tool to guide us to our own inner knowing.

Hawkins acknowledges the existence of ignorance and untruth, but does not address the issue of deliberate deception. It is ironic that after years of devotion to the truth, Hawkins still does not fully grasp the nature of deception. The world citizenry is currently experiencing one of the most elaborate mass brainwashes in history.

In fact, Hawkins even engages in deception when he explains the Iraq situation. He indicates that the primary reason to be there is to protect the world's (and specifically America's) economic and oil interests. Yet the primary reason given to the public for going to war was weapons of mass destruction. Whether or not it was a fact that there were actually WMDs misses the point. It was given as the main reason, and it was not. That is deception. For Hawkins to agree with the idea of justifiable deceptions is a clear indicator that he is not neutral here.

More importantly, for Hawkins to act as if outright deception is not occurring speaks to one's ability to deal with reality. For a person with 80 years of conditioned perception of reality to have reality turned on its head, a person could have a serious breakdown.

The gift in this 4th book is that Hawkins has shown us what the kinesiological technique can and cannot be used for. It can be used by the sincere truthseeker for his/herself. However, it is not to be used to show one a reality they are not ready to see. There is no technique to make one see the truth. One's clear and sincere intention is all that can do that. And even then, one may not be ready to handle the fullness of reality. The process of how one "wakes up" is yet to be known.

Who better than Hawkins to show us that experience is no substitute for impartiality? So, the readers of his 4th book get the opportunity to discern what is truth and what is his belief. The first 3 books prepared us, and the 4th is the test. Although he didn't intend it to work this way, it is the greatest gift of all. And just as importantly, it shows us that one can be quite enlightened in one area, while not having it all together in another. Even when one crosses the 600 line, one is still assailed by falsity and ignorance and must be constantly vigilant and unattached to one's beliefs.

And realistically, it couldn't have happened any other way. Given Hawkins' first 3 books and his audience, if he gave us the absolute truth about all the deceptions that make up the current perceived reality, it could have seriously messed some people up. It could result in serious mental breakdown if it was said that there aren't actually arab terrorists creating terror in America. So, the book had to be presented this way. And those of us who know the real truth know it through our own inner knowing already and don't need Hawkins to tell us.

In `The Art of War', Sun Tzu said, "All warfare is based on deception." Well, currently we have warfare in nearly every form. Even `necessary' and `justified' wars have deception as their roots.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A masterpiece - ahead of its time 28 février 2007
Par JessGates - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I'm very grateful to live synchronously in a world with a man the likes of David R. Hawkins. Through his teachings, I've become more introspective and have learned to look within as the source of my own frustrations as well as my happiness. Truth v. Falsehood is just another example of how he helps guide those of us willing to be guided to the truth.

I've read with amusement, some of the more scathing criticisms by readers of T v F, where great offense was taken by the results Hawkins obtained - especially regarding politics. Contrary to these readers' beliefs, this book was not written by him as a vehicle of propaganda to voice his own opinions. Had they simply read the "Caveat: A Note to the Reader" on page xi, this would have been clear. There he states: "Emotional reactions are personally determined by one's inner positionalities and belief systems... As [readers] ... have discovered, an initial response dissolves, upon reflection, into a broader understanding and compassion for oneself and others... For those who are aligned with truth, the path lights up; for those who refuse it, the path is darkened. All of us are free to choose."

This caveat indicates to me Hawkins realized far in advance the risk he was taking in alienating people by presenting the truth. He could have taken the easy (and safe) road and simply stayed silent about his findings. Instead, for the betterment of all, he chose to courageously share the results, in spite of the outcome to him. That anyone would take offense to the truth is bewildering - why condemn so noble a messenger?

The findings he presents certainly toppled many of the beliefs I had been attached to for a long time. But that's why I read the book to begin with! I wanted to know which, if any, of the "illusions" my ego clung to should be surrendered.

For those willing to open their hearts and open their minds, Truth vs Falsehood, as with all of Hawkins' works, is truly liberating.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't confuse the map with the territory. 7 février 2008
Par E. M. Teklinski - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
As a spiritual student of Dr. Hawkins since 2001, I want to encourage people to understand that Dr. Hawkins doesn't teach kinesiology. Truth is absolute yes, but this type of research is not linear. Think about it. Can you prove that you love your child? How much? Can you even prove that you had the dream you dreamt last night? Consciousness is subjective and non-linear folks! The scale of consciousness that Dr. Hawkins has developed is a relative scale. It's a tool. It's the map. Don't confuse the map with the territory. Also in regards to politics, Dr. Hawkins points out that extremism on both the left and the right side are dangerous. Too far to the left, you have Marxism; too far to the right you'll find Fascism. In Truth Vs. Falsehood, Dr. Hawkins provides you with a re-contextualization of many belief systems that we take for granted. For instance, you can't get a scorpion not to sting you by just being nice to it. Likewise, extremist radical terrorist groups will not embrace peace just because America tries to make nice. Another example, giving poor people and poor nations more money actually doesn't make them more affluent. I originally approached Dr. Hawkins' work with only the deep appreciation for the resonance of truth I felt with every message he conveyed. I tried kinesiology myself without a great deal of luck. I didn't lose interest in his teachings because I couldn't master his technology. Later, I found a kinesiologist who I worked with for almost 5 years. She was able to confirm truths for me that sometimes took years for me to substantiate experientially. I owe a great deal of my successes at avoiding big pit falls in my life to her ability to calibrate things. After a while, I noticed that I would get a gut feel on every question I asked her. I would hear a yes or no in my head the moment I asked a question. My stomach would tighten up when thinking of non-integrous thoughts or situations. I've come to rely much more on my own intuitions about things. All along, I've aligned myself more and more with Dr. Hawkins' teachings. If you focus too much attention on the kinesiology bit, then you will miss the rich, deep, and profound wisdom that he can share with you about the spiritual path. His teachings helped lead me straight out of a hellish existence into a place of joy and abundance and sincere happiness. I've learned to live my life like a prayer. I've let go of positionalities and learned how to forgive people in my life. Dr. Hawkins has such a way of synthesizing his teachings that I believe that his insights make up for thousands of books on religion and God one would have to read in one lifetime. I am deeply grateful for his work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Opened to the All...for Truth seekers only 11 août 2006
Par Shakenspirit - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I read this book after it first came out. I was so excited I ordered it in advanced. Then I read it. I was extremely offended, no, thats an understatement, I WAS OUTRAGED. As a life long Quaker, agnostic, pacifist/peace protester and Green party member, I could not believe what I was reading."Liberals" less evolved than "Conservatives"? Atomic bomb justified as "triage"? Just one more zealot pushing his agenda and morality down our throats. I was tempted to throw it in the fireplace, but I tossed the book in a box to be packed away for my upcoming move. I Just finished my second reading of the book. This book (as well as the author's other works) is amazing. It is possibly the most controversial book regarding spiritual matters (or politics or anything else) you will ever read. If you are serious about spiritual evolution, you should definitely consider it. Not easy stuff. This book is not "spirituality lite". If you are looking for a gentle, politically correct presentation, it will not be found here. This book takes the events unfolding in the world today and over the course of human history and brings them down hard into your lap. If you read it with serious intention, the material presented will challenge everything you think you know. It will get under your skin, kick down barriers in perception and belief, and will do it by poking the ego in it's most sensitive spots. If youre seeking Truth, are unafraid to challenge your belief systems, and are possessed of a genuinely open mind, this book is for you. If you need the security of your personal opinions, and are only interested in being "right", this book is not for you. Political (left or right), religious or secular "fundamentalists" will not be comfortable with this book. Dr. Hawkins is not afraid to "tell it like it is" and doesn't evade issues many in the "spiritual circus" are afraid to tackle or would rather white wash with pious sounding talk. He does not limit his teachings to only the spiritual realms or only spiritual people, he deals with the entire spectrum of human consciousness. "The good the bad and the ugly" are all here. So those who misunderstand his teachings on "global conflicts" or "the current administration" mistake his explanations of "the way things are" for a personal endorsement. He has no personal stake in the matter. Dr. Hawkins is presenting the information his research has revealed, and has no political ax to grind. Those who would like to limit him to a specific political opinion are only doing so out of ignorance. Although some of his comments could be taken as "conservative," or "neo conservatism" many (like those concerning universalism, reincarnation, scriptural infallibility, abortion, birth control, population control, death penalty, the war on drugs, current foreign policy of spreading democracy, civil rights, racial issues, comments on the Clinton Presidency and government responsibility) could comfortably be labeled as "liberal". Let me point out that most "neo cons" do not believe in or support evolution, Freudian and Jungian psychoanalysis, the dependence of truth on context, gay marriage, or the basic unity of all religious truth. There is plenty of material here to upset everyone. I think that might be part of the point. It seems having ones positionalities shredded makes us so sore because it exposes our true motivations to us...Do I say what I say because I believe it? Do I just want to sound morally superior? For me this was true. Do I believe Clinton or Bush is always wrong, or do I just hate them because they are on the wrong team? I Hated Mr. Bush...don't really know why. Is the other team (lifestyle, religion, ideology, thought system) always wrong? About everything? Do I support what I believe or do I just oppose the other team (because the leaders of my team say so)? For me I didn't even know what I believed, just knew what I opposed, but didn't know why. Are my opinions really valid? At all? Are they based on any real knowledge? mine were not. Dr. Hawkins goes far beyond political and spiritual categories and clarifies many of the solutions to the massive problems facing our world today. He provides an in depth analysis of what exactly "truth" is, the benefits that spring from it, and the consequences of "falsehood" (or as Buddha taught, ignorance). He then goes on to apply his discoveries to the entire range of human activity. So if you are curious about or dedicated to uncovering the Truth for yourself, buy this book. If you want to have your personal opinions reinforced, go buy something else. The most powerful thing I found in this book had nothing to do with the outside world. It had everything to do with who I am and my sense of integrity.
