Das wahre Wesen erfassen

Die Essenz drückt das wahre Wesen einer Sache, Person, Zustandes usw. aus.
Essenz ist eine Kombination aus Bedeutung, Intention und nichtlinearen Eigenschaften.


Hawkins erläutert an folgendem Beispiel, wie man aus einem Gemenge von Wahrnehmungen Essenz herausfiltern kann:


Ein Spaziergänger im Wald hört im Hintergrund das Geräusch von knackenden Zweigen und das Rascheln von Blättern. Er weiß und spürt, dass die Geräusche Ausdruck der Wahrnehmung eines friedlichen, normalen Zustands des Waldes sind. Plötzlich bricht ein Ast. Das Geräusch hört sich genauso an wie sonst auch. Dennoch stellt sich ein anderes Gefühl dabei ein. Zu dem gesellt sich das intuitive Wissen, dass ein Bär [Essenz] in der Nähe ist.

Das Wesen des Seins – Essenz

Kurz vor seiner Ermordung im Januar 1948 gab der indische Weise Mahatma Gandhi sein letztes Interview.
Ein junger Reporter der Zeitung The Times of India (TOI) befragte ihn:

"Wie haben Sie die Briten gezwungen, Indien zu verlassen?
Die Briten haben seit mehr als 350 Jahren Indien beherrscht.
Sie hatten keine Armee, kein Geld, keine offizielle Position, keinen Rückhalt durch die Regierung.
Wie haben Sie die Briten zwingen können, Indien zu verlassen?"


Gandhis Antwort lautete:

"Ich wiederhole das, was ich bereits der Nationalen Kongresspartei gesagt habe.
"Sie verstanden es nicht, doch vielleicht verstehen Sie es.
  • Es war nicht von Bedeutung, was wir sagten, obwohl das wichtig war.
  • Es war nicht von Bedeutung, was wir taten, obwohl das auch wichtig war.
  • Von Bedeutung war das 'Wesen unseres Seins'. Die Essenz dessen, was wir waren,
    veranlasste die [Kolonialregierung der] Briten zu der Entscheidung, Indien zu verlassen."

  • Die Essenz aller Wahrheit offenbart sich als sich selbst erklärend und offenkundig. Die Vollständigkeit und Ganzheit dieser Wissendheit überschreitet die Grenzen der Zeit und ist daher immer gegenwärtig. Eine Widerspiegelung ihrer Gegenwart ist die Fähigkeit, Unbegreifliches durch die Selbstoffenbarung seiner Essenz zu begreifen. Somit ist alles offenbar geworden. Das Unmanifeste und das Manifeste sind ein und dasselbe. Das All-sehende Auge, S. 58, 2005

Quotes by D. Hawkins

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

  • Spirit refers to an unseen essence, which never changes, even though its expression varies from one situation to another. This essence is vital; when we lose our spirit, we die – we expire from lack of that which inspires. Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, chapter 13, S. 179, Hay House, February 2002


  • The pervasive Essence includes everything without exception. The furnishings in the room are equal to rocks or plants in their importance or significance. Nothing is excluded from the Allness which is all encompassing, total, complete, and lacking in nothing. All is of equal value because the only real value is the divinity of existence. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, The Presence, S. 4, 2001



shining forth brilliantly; radiant

  • Instead of thinkingness, there is a self-revealing knowingness that imparts complete understanding and is self-explanatory by its self-effulgent essence. It is as though everything speaks silently and presents itself in its entirety in the absolute beauty of its perfection. In so doing, it manifests its glory and reveals its intrinsic Divinity. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 5, 2001


Blue tile on the facade of the Friday Mosque,
Herat, Afghanistan, 15th century


  • By analogy, the sun does not play hide and seek when the clouds of the ego's beliefs are swept away. It is discovered that the sun has been shining all along. Its light and warmth radiate because that is the sun's innate, intrinsic essence and quality. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 5, 2003



  • At his level of development [Calibration Level 500, the capacity to discern essence becomes predominant; the core of an issue becomes the center of focus. As reason is bypassed, there arises the capacity for instantaneous recognition of the total it of a problem and a major expansion of context. Reason deals with particulars, whereas love deals with wholes. This ability, often ascribed to intuition, is the capacity for instantaneous understanding without resorting to sequential symbol processing. Transcending Levels of Consciousness. The Stairway to Enlightenment, S. 245, 2006



  • With this [spiritual] orientation, processing of information becomes increasingly more contextual and general rather than particular, and there is less mental vocalization and languaging. This evolves into the capacity to 'realize' and 'know', without thinkingness. The subjective experiential quality of holding a purring cat or encountering a dog's wagging tail does not require thinking or mentalization at all. Instead, one just 'gets' what the whole situation is about because of the progressive capacity for the discernment of essence rather than mentalized perception. By this process, it eventually becomes quite clear that everything 'just is as it is', and 'what' it is, is its 'meaning. Transcending the Levels of Consciousness. The Stairway to Enlightenment, S. 338, 2006




Discerning truth from falsehood depends on the individual's brain physiology and LoC

  • The individual's capacity to recognize reality is consequent to the level of consciousness and concordant brain physiology. Notable is that spiritual intention markedly increases mental capacity and brain function so that the mind has greater capacity to actually discern essence. Thus, the answer to the question, "What is the purpose of life or of the world?" depends primarily on the calibrated level of consciousness and associated brain physiology of the person pondering the question. Overall, we see that the higher the level of consciousness (higher mind), the greater the capacity to discern truth, essence, and reality from illusion and emotionalized misperception (lower mind). Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man, S.  80, 2008


  • Language is only descriptive appearance at best and not in the same category as essence. Experience is of a different level from symbols. Thus, the musical score of the opera or symphony does not create aesthetic delight, but only the music itself results in delight because it is of a different and higher paradigm level than the written score of musical symbols. Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man, S. 93, 2008


  • Safeguards against being programmed by society are:
    • (1) emotional detachment, in which all information is viewed as provisional;
    • (2) awareness that ordinary mentalization is unable to discern perception from essence; and
    • (3) knowing that the wolf often hides beneath sheep's clothing.
This suspension of belief is the practical application of the basic dictum to "wear the world like a loose garment." To "be in the world but not of it" is a mode of attention that nevertheless still allows spontaneous interaction and function in society.

  • Spiritual means you are interested in the essence of the Truth within the teachings. Thus a person can be religious and spiritual if he or she is interested in the essence of the Truth within the teachings. [Paraphrased.] Sedona Seminar Practical Spirituality, 3 DVD set, 25. October 2008

Persönliche Bekenntnis
Ich erinnere mich sehr deutlich daran, wie ich mit fünfzig Jahren in die Menopause kam. Eines Tages war ich gerade in meinem Keller am Aufräumen, als mir plötzlich eine verführerische Stimme ins Ohr flüsterte:

"Möchtest du sterben?"

Das Angebot war verlockend, doch ich spürte in mich hinein und stellte fest: Nein, ich habe noch kaum angefangen.

"Möchtest du Krebs bekommen oder möchtest du dich verjüngen?",

fuhr die Stimme fort. Ich war schockiert.

"Ich wusste gar nicht, dass ich diese Wahl habe",

antwortete ich innerlich.

"Du hast sie",

wurde mir geantwortet,

"Krebs ist der panische Versuch des Körpers, ziel- und planlos zu wachsen.
Verjüngung entsteht, wenn du dich dafür entscheidest, den tieferen Plan deiner Evolution zu aktivieren. Die Tendenz zum Krebs wird zur Regeneration deiner Zellen umgewandelt, solange du bereit bist, deiner höheren Bestimmung zu folgen.
Der Tod kommt, wenn du dich entscheidest, es nicht mehr zu tun. Du wirst so lange leben wie du schöpferisch tätig bist. Die Wechseljahre führen so zur Metamorphose."

    Hierarchy is illusion. There are levels of illusion, not levels of reality. [...]
    You go from unconscious Hell to conscious Hell, and being conscious of Hell, of samsara, of lacerating existence, is what makes growing up – and being an adult – such a nightmare of misery and alienation. [...]

  • The process of essential retrieval and development does not require complete and permanent dissolution of the personality. Rather, it needs a personality strong enough and flexible enough to allow temporary dissolution and regrouping, so that the relation between the personality and the essence will change.
    What really needs to happen is that the personality assumes the role and position of the servant to essence, not its master. The personality will be in the service of essence, doing its true and natural function. A.H.

To know your Essence, you must discard your self-judgements and your criticisms of your brother or sister. Paul Ferrini, US American inspirational author

Englische Texte – English section on Essence

The essence of beingness

Shortly before he was assassinated the Indian sage and spiritual activist leader Mahatma Gandhi gave his last interview in January 1948.
A young reporter sent by The Times of India (TOI) asked him these questions:

"How did you force the British to leave India?
The British have been in India for more than 350 years.
You had no army, you had no money, you had no official position, you had no government sanction.
How did you force the British to leave India?"


Gandhi's response was,

"Well, I will tell you what I told the National Congress Party. They didn't understand it, but maybe you will.
It was not what we said that mattered, although that was important.
It was not what we did that mattered, although that too was important.
What mattered was the 'nature of our beingness'. The essence of who we were,
that is what made the British choose to leave India."

God brews the coffee.

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.


Coffee cortado (Latte art)

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups – porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite – telling them to help themselves to the coffee.


When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said:

"If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups [...] and then you began eyeing each other's cups.
Now consider this: Life is the coffee; the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of Life we live.
Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided us.
God brews the coffee, not the cups. Enjoy your coffee!
The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to the Universe."
