Absolutheit ⇔ Relativismus

Absolutheit schwingt auf der Bewusstseinsebene von BW 650, während die Wirklichkeit des Absoluten in der menschlichen Domäne bei BW 1000 liegt (die höchstmögliche Ebene für einen Menschen auf Erden). Mit Absolutheit meint Hawkins "Absolutismus" bezüglich Wahrheit, Wirklichkeit und Fakten. Absolutheit sagt aus, dass sich der vorhandene Wahrheitsgrad auf das Absolute bezieht. So gesehen ist Wahrheit stufenweise relativ in Bezug auf das Absolute.

 

Der moralische Relativismus [BW 185-190] spricht die Existenz des Absoluten und der Wahrheit an sich ab und unterstellt, dass Wahrheit sich nach dem richtet, was ein Individuum oder die Gesellschaft für wahr hält.

  • Obgleich die wahrgenommene Welt in Wirklichkeit nicht in einem absoluten Sinn real ist, denken die Menschen doch, sie sei es. Das All-sehende Auge, S. 352, 2005

 

  • Aus der Gesamtheit authentisch nachprüfbarer Quellen spirituellen Wissens kann man eine absolute, nicht weiter reduzierbare Quintessenz herausdestillieren, einen innersten Bereich absoluter Werthaltigkeit, der alle Denkpositionen oder Veränderungen der Aussage zwecks Gewinn oder Vorteil übersteigt. Licht des Alls. Die Wirklichkeit des Göttlichen, S. 233, 2006

 


 

  • Das Ego ist clever. Es schüttelt Gott ab, indem es die Selbstbestimmtheit des Absoluten leugnet. Sedona Seminar Witnessing and Observing, 3 DVD-Set, 16. Oktober 2004

 

  • Es gibt nur eine Absolute Realität, und sie kommt in unterschiedlichen Dimensionen zum Ausdruck. Was 4000 v. Chr. in Indien offenbart wurde, sollte 1936 in Chicago dasselbe sein.

Quotes by D. Hawkins

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

  • In the end, the God of Transcendence and the God of Divine Love merge in the Supreme. The unification of that which is loved is the fulfillment of divine destiny and the core of Salvation. Love is therefore the means and the end. Source unknown

 

 

 

  • Awareness itself is beyond even consciousness. Therefore it may be said that the Absolute is unknowable exactly because it's beyond knowing, or beyond the reach of consciousness itself. [...] Such a state can have no meaning with anyone without the experience of that context. Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, S. 233, Hay House, February 2002

 

  • That which is Absolute Reality has no needs as it is already All That Is. There is no need for power when one is power itself. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 4, 2006

 

  • That which is the Absolute Reality has no needs, as it already is All That Is.
    • There is no need for power when one is power itself.
    • Infinite Power has no need to control anything.
By analogy, the sky does not need the clouds nor does it create or destroy them. They arise within its all encompassing, boundless space. The sky does not kill, retaliate, or punish clouds. The sky provides equality to all clouds as well as the context for their formation of perceptual appearance and disappearance.
I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 46, 2006

  • Intrinsic to the very basic construction of the human ego is the innate innocence in that it believes in the reality or truth of its own programs and is unaware that it lacks an intrinsic capacity for self-correction. The reason for ego's lack of capacity for verification is that its data is limited to only internal processing systems. The internal mechanisms of ego lack any external, independent source of reference for verification. The human mind is like a ship at sea that is unable to correct its direction without a compass or an external source of reference, such as the stars. It is important to realize that a system is only correctible when it has access to an external point of reference (e.g. a global positioning system) that therefore serves as the absolute by which all other data are compared (Absolutism calibrates at 650 and the Absolute itself calibrates at 1000). Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man, S. 135-136, 2008

Summarizing the profile of generally dismissed and not addressed critics of Hawkins' teachings

  • Personal Bias – This is the primary reason for disagreement. Criticisms come from
    1. atheists,
    2. political bias,
    3. people who calibrate below 200,
    4. people who are upset by findings, and
    5. relativists who reject the confirmable Reality of Absolutism.
Note that skepticism, relativism, and cynicism all calibrate far below the critical level of 200. In contrast, Absolutism calibrates at 650, and the reality of the Absolute itself calibrates at 1,000.

  • The way to God is in this absolute moment. In the absolute Reality of this split second of Now, is the open. Is the gateway, POW! Through this moment Now you split the Universe asunder, I split the universe asunder right in this instant. All time stops, all form stops, I am beyond all the world and all of it doings in this very instant. Video interview dialogue with Korean nun Yun Kyung Huh, Advanced States of Consciousness. The Realization of the Presence of God, Volume series III, DVD 1 of 2, Institute for Advanced Spiritual Research, recorded around 1996, published 2002

 

  • Relativism denies the existence of the absolute and says that anything can mean anything one wants it to mean. By that reasoning, one can say that men should be free to have relations with young boys, that it’s okay to kill. Homicide can be disguised as religiosity. That’s what can happen when you disregard the absolute. And without an absolute, kinesiology itself would be impossible; it would have nothing to gauge against. Sedona Seminar Identification and Illusion, 3 DVD set, 14. August 2004

 

  • When we calibrate levels of consciousness, we’re calibrating levels as compared with absolute truth, just as a thermometer calibrates temperature relative to freezing. […] Without an absolute, kinesiology [LoC 605] itself would be impossible. [It would have nothing to gauge against]. The price of not being able to discern the difference between truth and falsehood is death, war. Sedona Seminar Identification and Illusion, 3 DVD set, 14. August 2004

  • The ego hates to hear anything that suggests it’s not God. The ego is clever; it gets rid of God by getting rid of the sovereignty of the Absolute. Sedona Seminar Witnessing and Observing, 3 DVD set, 16. October 2004

 

  • Behind all the sound of the universe, the silence is forever there. Behind the sounds of the woods, the woods are silent. The sound of the bird doesn't have anything to do with the silence. You see, the silence is maintained even though there's sound above it. But the only reason you can hear the sound is because of the background of silence. So the silence is there, right in the middle of the sound. So, you focus on the silence, which is ever present. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona Seminar Reason vs. Truth, DVD 3 of 3, minute 1:43:56-1:48:15, 19. August 2006 – August 2006 lecture – Closing prayer, YouTube film, 3:45 minutes duration, posted by darrylhoward 2.

  • You are not going to let yourself die without knowing from the absolute that it is safe. "It is safe to die." (Calibrated as true.) Sedona Satsang Q&A, 2 CD set, 10. January 2007

  • Es gibt ein Ungeborenes, Ungewordenes, Unerschaffenes, nicht Bedingtes.
    Wenn es dies hier nicht gäbe, dann wäre ein Entrinnen aus dem Geborenen, Gewordenen, Geschaffenen, Bedingten nicht zu erkennen.
    Weil es nun aber ein Ungeborenes, Ungewordenes, Unerschaffenes, nicht Bedingtes gibt, deshalb ist hier ein Entrinnen aus dem Geborenen, Gewordenen, Geschaffenen, Bedingten zu erkennen. Udana 8, 3. Itivuttaka 43, zitiert in: Hellmuth Hecker (*1923) deutscher Jurist, profilierter Interpret des Theravada-Buddhismus, Chronist des Buddhismus, Übersetzer aus dem Pali-Kanon, Itivuttikam.

  • Auch wenn du das ganze Universum mit deiner Macht und deiner Kontrolle beherrschen könntest, wärst du immer noch ohnmächtig und getrennt von dem, was du bist. Diese Unerreichbarkeit dessen, was du bist, diese Unbegreiflichkeit der Absolutheit, das ist Frieden. Jede Technik, die dich zu irgendetwas führt, ist Krieg, weil du etwas kriegen wolltest. Du warst in der Annahme, etwas verloren zu haben und eine Technik zu brauchen, um wieder etwas zu kriegen. Karl Renz, deutscher Neoadvaita-Lehrer, Quelle unbekannt

Insights

  • The Absolute cannot be understood. Understanding goes only up to the ‘I am’ sense. You are not whatever you understand, in non-understanding you understand yourself. Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj [LoC 720] (1897-1981) Indian Hindu sage of the advaita vedānta tradition, source unknown

 

  • There is nothing absolute and final. If everything were ironclad, all the rules absolute and everything structured so no paradox or irony existed, you couldn't move. One could say that man sneaks through the crack where paradox exists. Itzhak Bentov ( 1923-1979) Czech-born Israeli American scientist, inventor, mystic, author, A Cosmic Book. On the Mechanics of Creation, 1988

 

Critique on D. Hawkins' absolutism

  • Whereas in traditional religion, the absolute truth is found in an ecclesiastic doctrine, in Hawkins' case, absolute truth is presented in the form of calibrations. (although it could be argued that his books have become religious doctrines for many of his students). As we've learned, absolutism leads to fundamentalism. […] Hawkins has wise perspectives on some things, but he also demonstrates severe limitations (like all of us) in his thinking in many areas. His absolute truth claims clearly do not hold up under scrutiny. Fundamentalism [LoC 130/200/325] comes in an infinite number of degrees. Every explorer of Hawkins' work isn't necessarily an overt fundamentalist as I once was. His system, however, caters to those prone to fundamentalist thinking. Scott Jeffrey, US American business and marketing consultant, author, Power vs. Truth. Peering Behind the Teachings of David R. Hawkins, chapter 10 The Spoiled Fruits of Absolutism, S. 184, Creative Crayon Publishers, 14. January 2013

Kashmir Shivaism theism

  • The ancient masters refer in various ways to this One creative force out of which everything emerges. It is known most commonly as the Ultimate, Absolute Reality, Consciousness, Paramasiva, and God. Yet, according to Kashmir Shivaism, Paramasiva cannot be fully described or clearly thought over because, being infinite in nature, He cannot be confined to any thinking or speaking ability. No words can fully describe Him, no mind can correctly think about Him, and no understanding can perfectly understand Him. This is His absoluteness, and Kashmir Shivaism considers this absoluteness to be one of His key attributes. Because the Absolute cannot be fathomed with the intellect or through ordinary logical reasoning and philosophical speculation, the ancient masters relied on revelation (darsana) in deep yogic states to arrive at their understanding and truths of Reality. Working from the foundation of absolute non-dualism, they discovered Paramasiva within their own consciousness; looking within they found the Whole. They were able to transcend the ordinary limited vision of the individual self, and to discover the universal Self. Since this Self of each individual is claimed to be none other than the Absolute, and because God and the Self are understood as one, this philosophy is truly theistic. B. N. Pandit, Specific Principles of Kashmir Shaivism, S. 15-16, 3rd edition 2008

 

  • Absolute truth belongs only to one class of humans [...] the class of absolute fools. Ashley Montagu (1905-1999) British-American anthropologist, humanist, author on race and gender, politics and development, cited in: James Davidson Hunter, Culture Wars. The Struggle to Define America, 1991

 

  • [A new arising spirituality] is radically inclusive and accessible spirituality free from the dogma and ideology and blind belief of the past, a spirituality in which nothing and nobody – including the teachers themselves – can escape the loving light of ruthless inquiry and blinding transparency, in which nobody can claim any kind of absolute truth or privileged knowledge. Jeff Foster, British astrophysicist, awakened teacher, first SAND conference in Europe, THE NATURE OF THE SELF, Zonheuvel Conference Centre, Doorn, The Netherlands, 29. May-3. June, 2012

 

  • The other aspect of idealism is the one which gives us our notion of the absolute Self. To it the first is only preparatory. This second aspect is the one which from Kant, until the present time, has formed the deeper problem of thought. Josiah Royce (1855-1916) US-American objective idealist philosopher, source unknown

 

  • Roma locuta causa finita. [After/because Rome has spoken, the matter is closed.] Latin proverb

Literary quotes

  • Everything is contradictory, everything tangential; there are no certainties anywhere. Everything can be interpreted one way and then again interpreted in the opposite sense. […]
    The Master […] said, "There is truth, my boy. But the doctrine you desire, absolute, perfect dogma that alone provides wisdom, does not exist. Nor should you long for a perfect doctrine, my friend. Rather, you should long for the perfection of yourself. The deity is within you, not in ideas and books. Truth is lived, not taught. Be prepared for conflicts. Hermann Hesse (1877-1962) German-born Swiss novelist, poet, novel The Glass Bead Game,  S. ?, 1931-1943
