Finally! The book that explains the actual technique the good Dr. used to solve his many health dilemmas.
Having pre-ordered it months ago, it finally arrived this week.
Only two or three chapters in I already think this may be his most important work yet.
If you're human you want to read this one.

The present work describes a simple and effective means by which to let go of the obstacles to Enlightenment and become free of negativity. During the many decades of the author’s clinical psychiatric practice, the primary aim was to seek the most effective ways to relieve human suffering in all its many forms. The letting go technique (surrender) was found to be of great practical benefit and is described in this book.

A wonderful distillation of all of Dr. Hawkins' teachings, written just before his passing. Most elegantly simple. A true gift, a classic, a gem. What else can one say?

A profound book. I will re-read for the rest of my life. If I had to suggest one book that I would like everyone to read, it would be this one.

Let’s follow the pathway of surrender:

First, picture a big chain around your ankles that prevents you from moving toward the life you desire. That’s the image I give to my audiences when I talk about attachments.

Second, think of the similarity between a peanut butter sandwich, a satellite signal, and a thought. They are all forms of energy. They only differ by the wavelengths at which they vibrate. Negative thoughts and emotions are aligned with low, slow-moving energies. Positive thoughts and e

This book is more than brilliant. It could save more lives than medicine. I think everyone in the planet should read this book at least once to discover a method to let bad emotions and feelings go, so the superior feelings like love, compassion, calmness, and acceptance arise and define your and my new life.
Heiki Eesmaa
Quite different from the rest of DRH's work. While surrender itself is Lester Levenson's releasing, currently best known as Sedona Method, the Doc puts so different a spin on it that the origin of the technique is just a side remark.
A classic. Extremely well done. If you want to have a happier and better life, read it.
Richard Gustafsson
Excellent book, great as introduction to Hawkins
This book explains our emotions and how our thinking keeps us stuck in places for years. It is about letting go and waking up.
Jonathan Woods
Similar to other stuff he has written. Good read for any folks who have not read David Hawkins.
Judith Jnclaude

This is a beautiful book and I did the technic of letting go in the book one night I was so upset And it was a different experience owning the feeling instead of stuffing it or repressing it. But as I stick to it the feeling disappear and as he said at the root of my anger was fear. I will continue to practice the technic learn in this book as long as I'm alive. Very easy and may do wonders for my life.

“we hang on to pain. It certainly satisfies our unconscious need for the alleviation of guilt through punishment. We get to feel miserable and rotten. The question then arises, “But for how long?” 3 likes
“Enlightenment is not something that occurs in the future, after 50 years of sitting cross-legged and saying “OM.” It is right here, in this instant. The reason you’re not experiencing this state of total peace and timelessness is because it is being resisted. It is being resisted because you are trying to control the moment. If you let go of trying to control your experience of the moment, and if you constantly surrender it like a tone of music, then you live on the crest of this exact always-ness. Experience arises like a note of music. The minute you hear a note, it’s already passing away. The instant you’ve heard it, it’s already dissolving. So every single moment is dissolving as it arises. Let go of anticipating the next moment, trying to control it, trying to hang on to the moment that has just passed. Let go clinging to what has just occurred. Let go trying to control what you think is about to occur. Then you live in an infinite space of non-time and non-event. There is an infinite peace beyond description. And you are home.” 2 likes
