Higher levels of consciousness have always intrigued me. Power versus fours gives the Self access to what is possible. Muscle testing has become my new way off identifying truth in the universe. This book provides clear answers to many of Life's difficult questions! Thank you Dr. Hawkins.
I listened to this one on audible because I wanted to hear David Hawkin's voice. The book is one of foundations for his other works, and I found it very valuable and thought provoking. Although I like his last book "Letting Go" slightly better, I am very glad I spent the time to hear this one and reflect once again about the levels of consciousness.
Absolutely not. I can't stand the narration.
It seems like his research and work are very important, but when I hear it read by him, I feel like I'm listening to someone reading the dictionary. I find my mind wandering.
I haven't even finished the book yet, but I honestly don't know if I can due to the painful monotony of his reading. I would love to experience a different reader and see if I feel differently. Fairly dense material should not be read like a textbook...
Extreme reaction to the reading...
I hope he re-releases this important work with someone else narrating - and perhaps also to make the language slightly more accessible. The combination of the two make it so dry.
I love the information so much that I have actually put myself through the horror of listening to the stinking AWFUL narration. Want to poke yourself in the eye boring reading by the author. Think of the absolute worst lecturer you ever lived through and you will understand. Truly a regrettable mistake that this life changing information is being audibly conveyed so poorly.
the emotional scale
buy and read the hard copy of the book myself
The information is remarkable and this audio book should be re-recorded by a professional!
The whole time I was listening I was so annoyed by his voice. Dr. Hawkins is monotone and sounds like he smoked 2 packs a day for the last 30 years. He also sounded like he had a few martinies while he read.
Come on Hawkins get a narrator, that's what there good at. You are brilliant at what you do but please have a professional narrator read your book. I couldn't get past chapter 3.
The most memorable part is his monotone voice
Sure, Lurch from the Adams Family
Great book, bad narration. Hire a professional narrator.
The story is anti scientific, based on unproven assumptions, false expectations. This is a sort of mythology sold as popular science that should belong to the fantasy list of books. Nothing could make me grant more than 1 star, provided that zero is not an option.
This is not science. This shall stay in the same list with The Secret and the horoscope.
He is a terrible narrator. Only the content of the book is worse than the narrator
I am sorry I bought this book. I shall pay more attention before of buying a book
Not sure-it is a fascinating topic and really deserves to be part of a person's library. I cannot believe that the narration cannot be improved.
The narrator sounded like he was under a pool of scotch.
This is truly the only book with this information and it would be great to listen to it with another narrator.
Yes. I like his lectures, but I found this book incredibly dry and unlistenable.
I couldn't make it to the end
I suspect this may have been Dr. Hawkins first attempt at narrating? It sounded like a first grade reader being forced to read in front of his class. Halting and stiff.
Dr Hawkins, his use of kinesiology, interpretation of the non linear vs the linear, duality vs non duality and the map of consciousness over which he calibrates almost anything offers a paradigm shift and lays out groundwork in how to do the inner spiritual work and is a true Guru in all that he selflessly explains and outlines in this foundational book for all the rest of his work which dawns a new level of consciousness for an unbiased seeker of truth.
I'm going to study all his work, or at least as much as I can.
The author has a great sense of humor and points out all that is relevant outlining the many facets of knowledge, causality, ego consciousness and how to transcend it, and an awareness of God through the lens of his work
Thank you Dr Hawkins, and may God bless you, I wish I could have met Dr Hawkins, though he outlines that the work is more important and did not give much relevance to his own self or importance any more than that which would allow him to do his work.
