    The publication of Power vs. Force by Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., reveals to the general public secret information heretofore only shared by the author with certain Nobelists and world leaders. Analyzing the basic nature of human thought and consciousness itself, the author makes available to everyone the key to penetrating the last barrier to the advancement of civilization and science and resolving the most crucial of all human dilemmas.

    Overall

    I have read Power vs. Force the book version before and am now listening to the Audible download of the book. Quick advice: don’t listen to the audio book – it is awful. The audio book is 8 hours and 10 minutes long and the narrator (Mr. Hawkins himself) should stick to writing books and NOT reading them. I can only listen to 30 minutes at a time without losing interest due to his voice.

    In a nutshell power is good, force is bad. To find out where anything exists along the spectrum of consciousness, one needs to do muscle testing. Using basic Kinesiology muscle testing you can determine where an object, person or pretty much anything rates on his scales.

    Hawkins developed a "Map of Consciousness" which rates the various power levels of ideas and attitudes. This map gives the reader the ability to examine his or her beliefs and attitudes and determine where their power level is currently.

    Power is the power of Gandhi to liberate India without blood-shed; Force is personified by Stalin. Power serves others, whereas force is self-serving. Power is a by-product of developing self-confidence. Power is not used for control or domination. Power vs. Force is also expressed in the writings known as the Tao Te Ching. Power gives life and energy; force takes these away.

    So I do have a couple of problems with his work. One is that his own book “Power vs. Force”, according to Hawkins, calibrates at 850, which is higher than the Bible or the Koran, or indeed almost anything else ever written by a human being. I was also very bummed to learn that heavy metal music rates really low. I love to workout to heavy metal music – if I had only known it was making my muscles weak the whole time. :~)

    I have mixed feelings about the book, but found the content interesting, particularly to anyone interested in consciousness, meditation, etc.
