it was amazing

There is something about the prose that David Hawkins writes that directly talks to the Ego in order to quiet it. I have read many spiritual texts, but none come close to the simplicity and eloquence of Hawkins.

I enjoyed this book like all his other books. The message seems to be the same:
Dissolve the self to find the Self.
Eliminate all fears to find Love.
Quet the ego to see God.

Some excerpts I enjoyed:
Spiritual evolution is supported by education and information up to the point where the intellect is no longer a primary tool as it is in ordinary learning. The spiritual ‘work’ then transitions from the mental/intellectual/conceptual linear to the nonlinear region of human consciousness, which relates more to context than to content and form or data.

-Surrender of the personal will to the Will (Wisdom) of God (or Providence, Higher Power) signifies relinquishment of control. One can expect the ego to resist doing so, and it invents excuses, counterarguments, and multiple fears in order to maintain illusory control. The ego’s positions are reinforced by pride as well as desire for specific results. Thus, to the ego, to step back and invite the intervention of Divinity seems like a loss, whereas, to the Spirit, it is definitely a win.
