Göttlicher Frieden einhergehend mit dem Zustand der Erleuchtung ist erreicht

Zitate von D. Hawkins

⚠ Achtung Siehe Power vs. Truth (engl.) Januar 2013

  • Das letztendliche Gewahrsein und tiefste Verständnis der Gegenwart Gottes ist Friede. Dieser Friede verströmt unendliche Sicherheit und Geborgenheit in nie endendem Schutz. Keinerlei Leiden ist überhaupt noch möglich. Es gibt keine Vergangenheit zu bedauern und keine Zukunft zu fürchten. Da alles bekannt und allgegenwärtig ist, sind alle möglichen Unsicherheiten oder Ängste vor dem Unbekannten für immer aufgelöst. Die Garantie des Überlebens ist absolut. Es gibt keine Wolken am Horizont und ebenso wenig so etwas wie eine Zukunft oder einen nächsten Augenblick, der irgendetwas Unangenehmes oder Unglückliches im Verborgenen bereithalten könnte. Das Leben ist ein immerwährendes "Heute". OU Das All-sehende Auge, S. 141, 2005

Transcending into the state of peace / enlightenment

  • It [LoC 600] is more that one is indifferent to [the body]. The state is so complete and perfect that there is no wantingness. To move something you have to have a wantingness. All wantingness disappers. [The physical functions] seem to operate in a delayed way. Many of the basic physiological functions do stop. Breathing will even stop. Video presentation recounting Hawkins' experience of enlightenment, title and date unknown

 

  • As I step over a rattle snake, there I am on the top of Schnelby Hill. I was looking at this big place there and I step over and 'Good God Almighty!' there it is, the hugest rattler you ever saw. 'Good Lord!' and in that instant there was letting go at absolute depth, an absolute letting-go-ness. All fear disappeared. All perception of it as a possible enemy – and in its place there as profound stillness and peace that was infinitely powerful, the presence of love, the Presence of God is so powerful it sweeps away everything and so the snake is held there, suspended – just like that – can't move. That profound state of peace, the stillness of the Presence of God holds all within itself and nothing can withstand it. Sedona Seminar Devotion: The Way to God Through the Heart, DVD 1 of 3, minute ~52:00, 27. September 2002
⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

  • The person who has found inner peace can no longer be intimidated, controlled, manipulated, or programmed. In this state, one is invulnerable to the threats of the world and therefore has mastered life. Source unknown

 

  • As we sacrifice our personal lives for the sake of the world, we sanctify the life of the world. You can leave your peace signs at home; they’re political slogans that become divisive. By lifting the field, you lift the world. Spiritual work becomes attacked by many people in a very yang way. Source unknown

 

 

  • When this state [LoC 600] is reached, the distinction between subject and object disappears, and there's no specific focal point of perception. Not uncommonly, individuals at this level remove themselves from the world, as the state of bliss that ensues precludes ordinary activity. Some become spiritual teachers; others work anonymously for the betterment of mankind. A few become great geniuses in their respective fields and make major contributions to society. Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, chapter 4 Levels of Human Consciousness, S. 92, Hay House, February 2002

 

  • Peace can't be created this way: peace is the natural state of affairs when what's preventing it is removed. Relatively few people are genuinely committed to peace as a realistic goal, for in their private lives, most people prefer being "right" at whatever cost to their relationships or themselves. A self-justified positionality is the real enemy of peace. When solutions are sought on the level of coercion, no peaceful resolutions are possible. Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, S. 221, Hay House, Februar 2002

 

  • Every advance that we make in our awareness benefits unseen multitudes and strengthens the next step for others to follow. Every act of kindness is noticed by the universe and is preserved forever. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 118, 2001

 

  • Peace is literally a choice and a decision, although not a popular one in our society despite all the rhetoric about the term. The decision to overlook the seeming inequities of life instead of reacting to them is a choice [for peace]. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 198, 2001

 

  • It is a relief to let the mind become silent and just 'be' with surroundings. Peace results, and appreciation and calm prevail. In order to realize that a running commentary is not necessary or even authorized, the will gives the mind permission to be silent. When devalued and humbled, the vanity basis of thinkingness collapses, and in its place one discovers the joy of inner silence, which actually constitutes ninety-nice percent of the mind. Only one percent is actually chattering. Transcending Levels of Consciousness, S. 234, 2006

 

 

  • 21. Tranquility and Peace: There are no 'issues' or partialities. There is no desire to change others or impose on society. The effect of higher energies is innate and not dependent on propagation or effort. God does not need help anymore than gravity needs the 'help' of an apple's falling off the tree. Discovery of the Presence of God. Devotional Nonduality, S. 181, 2007

 

  • A subtle inner pleasure accompanies true spiritual endeavor. An inner quality of peace and fulfillment accompanies the subtle inner knowingness that one is finally 'homeward bound' in the transition from the world of the self to the expanded awareness of the Self. There is also relief from inner spiritual guilt that accompanies spiritual negligence and willful indulgence of the ego’s demands and desires for gain. Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man, chapter 10 Experiential versus Conceptual, S. 194, 2008

Catastrophes trigger deep surrender resulting in peace.

  • Right out of acute catastrophes come profound states of peace. […] The core of relief, is surrendering the energy at great depth.
    Suddenly all the agony stops and instead there is almost a silence, an infinite presence, an infinite state of peace that may be greater than any experience a person has had in their lives previously. They are not the same when they come out on the other side of it. From then on they are lighter and freer, and less subject to pain within their own emotional experience. Healing and Recovery, S. 245, 2009

0.3% of mankind are sincerely interested in peace.


 

  • When you totally accept that you are dumb and ugly you have peace. So I'm dumb and ugly! Sedona Satsang Q&A, CD 1 of 2, 10. January 2007

 

  • The first thing to develop a peaceful nature is to give up and let go of wanting to change and control other people. […] You can let go wanting to get even if you understand Divine Justice. […] All things have their own karmic pay-off and you don't have to do anything. It's not necessary to bring down your enemies because they will bring themselves down by their own hand. [...] The minute you get even with them or conquer them you now have the karma of that. Prescott Seminar Peace [LoC 565] lecture 3, 3 DVD set, 8. August 2009 – Let go of wanting to change other people, YouTube film, minute 0:17 and 1:49, 2:57 minutes duration, posted by LftUP 8. May 2011

Percentage of war times

Gloria Steinem, Gregg Braden, Richard Wilkinson, Ph.D., Marija Gimbutas, estimate:
There were 90% non-war periods, 10% war periods in human history.

  • There has been war 97% of the time [of recorded human history]. Let‘s just accept that war is a natural condition. If people wanted peace, they would have peace. Sedona Satsang Q&A, 2 CD set, 10. January 2007

Der erste Frieden – Gedicht

* * *

Der erste Frieden ist der Wichtigste.
Er ist es, der in die Seelen der Menschen einzieht, wenn sie ihre Verwandtschaft, ihr Einssein,
mit dem Universum begreifen und verinnerlichen, dass das große Geheimnis im Mittelpunkt der Welt wohnt
und diese Mitte tatsächlich überall ist. Sie ist in jedem von uns.
Dies ist der wirkliche Friede, alle anderen sind lediglich Widerspiegelungen davon.

Der zweite Friede wird zwischen Einzelnen geschlossen.

Und der dritte Friede ist der zwischen den Völkern.


Doch vor allem möget ihr verstehen, dass es niemals Frieden geben kann, solange nicht
der erste Friede vorhanden ist, welcher, wie ich schon so oft sagte, im Innern der Menschenseele wohnt.

 

Black Elk ['Hehaka Sapa', deutsch 'Schwarzer Elch'] [BW 499] (1863-1950), Drei Arten von Frieden

 

Black Elk war ein Wichasha Wakan, ein Medizinmann und Ältester der Oglala-Lakota-Indianer. Im Jahre 1876 nahm er mit erst zwölf Jahren an der Schlacht am Little Bighorn River teil. Das Massaker am Wounded Knee 1890 überlebte er schwer verletzt. Er war ein Cousin von Crazy Horse und kannte Sitting Bull und Red Cloud. Obwohl er kein Englisch sprach, hat er viel von der Welt des Weißen Mannes gesehen. Mit der "Buffalo Bill Wild West Show" ist er nach Italien, Frankreich und England gereist, wo er unter Anderem für Königin Victoria tanzte. Black Elk verfügte über große spirituelle Kraft und inspirierte sein Volk und viele andere weltweit.

Rabins letze Worte:

Kurz bevor ein Rechtsextremist tödlichen Schüssen auf ihn abgefeuert hat

  • Ich möchte gerne jedem einzelnen von Euch danken, der heute hierher gekommen ist, um für Frieden zu demonstrieren und gegen Gewalt. Diese Regierung, der ich gemeinsam mit meinem Freund Shimon Peres (1923-2015) das Privileg habe, vorzustehen, hat sich entschieden, dem Frieden eine Chance zu geben – einem Frieden, der die meisten Probleme Israels lösen wird. […] Der Weg des Friedens ist dem Weg des Krieges vorzuziehen. Ich sage Euch dies als jemand, der 27 Jahre lang ein Mann des Militärs war. Yitzhak Rabin (1922-1995) politisch ermordeter israelischer Staatsmann, Generalstabschef, Verteidigungsminister, fünfter Ministerpräsident (1974-1977) und (1992-1995)

 

  • ICH wünsche nicht, dass du in irgendeiner Weise Gewalt oder überwältigende Anstrengung einsetzt. Dies ist nicht die Methode, die der gütige, freundliche, friedliche Geist anwendet. Vielmehr wünsche ICH mir, du entspannst dich regelrecht in das Gewahrsein meiner GEGENWART hinein und betrachtest die Wahrheit für alle auf Erden, während du dir bewusst bist, dass mein Licht in deinem Inneren leuchtet. Ruby Nelson, Das Tor zur Unendlicheit, Aquamarin Verlag, Grafing, 1999

Einsichten

  • Wenn wir keinen Frieden finden, so liegt das einzig daran, weil wir vergessen haben, dass wir alle zusammengehören.

  • Wir können niemals Frieden in der Welt finden, wenn wir die innere Welt vernachlässigen und mit uns selbst nicht Frieden schließen. Weltfrieden muss aus innerem Frieden entstehen […]. Unser Schlachtfeld liegt nicht außerhalb, sondern innerhalb unserer selbst. Dalai Lama XIV. (Tenzin Gyatso) [Tanchu Dhondup] [BW 570] (*1935) tibetischer Mönch, geistliches Oberhaupt des tibetischen Buddhismus, Linienhalter der Gelug-Schule, Friedensnobelpreisträger, 1989, Tagung Fear and Anxiety, ETH Zürich, 4.

Frieden vs. Gewalt

  • Ob wir den Weg des Friedens finden oder den bisherigen, unserer Zivilisation unwürdigen Weg der brutalen Gewalt weitergehen, ist in unsere Hand gegeben. Auf der einen Seite winkt Freiheit der Individuen und Sicherheit der Gemeinschaften, auf der anderen Seite droht Knechtschaft für die Individuen und Vernichtung unserer Zivilisation. Unser Schicksal wird so sein, wie wir es verdienen. Albert Einstein (1879-1955) deutschstämmiger US-amerikanisch-Schweizer theoretischer Physiker, Entwickler der Allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie, Physik-Nobelpreisträger, 1921, zitiert in: Albert Einstein. Mein Weltbild, Erstauflage 1934, S. 65, Ullstein, Zürich, 2005

Der Physiker Einstein war während des Ersten Weltkriegs aktiv in der Anti-Kriegsbewegung.

Baruch Spinoza legte das Fundament für die Aufklärung des 18. Jahrhunderts. Als einer der Begründer der modernen Bibelkritik wird dem Rationalismus des 17. Jahrhunderts zugeordnet.

 

  • Friedensprojekte brauchen nicht nur große Politik, sondern ganz besonders die Bereitschaft Einzelner, sich auf die Menschen von der anderen Seite einzulassen. Prof. Dan Bar-On (1938-2008) israelischer Professor für Psychologie, Psychotherapeut, Holocaust- und Friedensforscher, Autor, Quelle unbekannt

Ratlose Netzwerke der Friedensforschung

  • Die Friedensforschung besteht aus einem losen internationalen Netzwerk von Menschen, die Krieg, Terror und Folter ablehnen und friedliche Konfliktlösungen suchen. Friedensforscherinnen und Friedensforscher kommen aus ganz unterschiedlichen wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen, darunter Soziologie, Rechtswissenschaft, Medizin, Geschichte, Religionswissenschaft und Volkswirtschaft. Die Friedensforschung glaubt, dass ein Ausstieg aus der Gewaltspirale sinnvoll und möglich ist. Unter den Friedensforscherinnen und Friedensforschern gibt es aber keine Einigkeit darüber, wie man am einfachsten zu einer Welt mit weniger Krieg und Terror gelangen kann.
    • Das erste auf Friedensforschung spezialisierte Institut in Europa war das 1959 gegründete Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) in Norwegen.
    • In Schweden wurde 1966 das Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) von der schwedischen Regierung als Stiftung gegründet.
    • In Deutschland entstand 1970 auf Bestreben der Hessischen Landesregierung in Frankfurt am Main das Forschungsinstitut Hessische Stiftung Friedens- und Konfliktforschung (HSFK).
      • In Bonn wurde 1986 die Stiftung Entwicklung und Frieden (SEF) gegründet, mit dem Ziel, Völkerverständigung, internationale Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung sowie das Bewusstsein um globale Zusammenhänge zu fördern.
    • In der Schweiz entstand 1988 in Bern die Stiftung Swisspeace, die im Auftrag des Eidgenössischen Departements für auswärtige Angelegenheiten (EDA) Gewaltkonflikte und Wege zu deren friedlicher Bearbeitung untersucht.

  • Frieden erfordert etwas weitaus schwierigeres als Rache auszuüben oder nur die andere Wange hinzuhalten; es erfordert empathisch mit den Ängsten und unerfüllten Bedürfnissen umzugehen, welche den Antrieb liefern, sich gegenseitig anzugreifen. Wenn Menschen sich über diese Gefühle und Bedürfnisse bewusst werden, verlieren sie das Verlangen zurückzuschlagen, da sie erkennen, dass Unwissenheit zu jenen Angriffen führt. Stattdessen wird es zu ihrem Ziel, empathische Verbindungen und Aufklärung zu schaffen, welche es ihnen ermöglicht, Gewalt zu überwinden und partnerschafliche Beziehungen einzugehen. Marshall B. Rosenberg (1934-2015) US-amerikanischer Psychologe, Psychotherapeut, international tätiger Mediator, Entwickler der Gewaltfreien Kommunikation, Marshall Rosenberg's NVC Quotes, PDF, #517, PuddleDancer Press, 2011

 

  • Wir tragen den Frieden wie ein Gewand, an dem wir vorn flicken, während es hinten reißt. Wilhelm Raabe (1831-1910) deutscher Erzähler, Romanschriftsteller des poetischen Realismus

 

  • Krieg ist zuerst die Hoffnung, dass es einem besser gehen wird, hierauf die Erwartung, dass es dem anderen schlechter gehen wird, dann die Genugtuung, dass es dem anderen auch nicht besser geht, und hernach die Überraschung, dass es beiden schlechter geht. Karl Kraus (1874-1936) österreichischer Aphorist, Satiriker, Journalist, Dichter, Bühnenschriftsteller, Schriftsteller, Aphorismen Nachts, 1924, Kapitel 6, Volk und Welt, 1971

Insights

  • We are not at peace with others because we are not at peace with ourselves, and we are not at peace with ourselves because we are not at peace with God.

March 1980
  • We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence. […] We need silence to be able to touch souls. Mother Teresa of Calcutta [LoC 710] (1910-1997) Albanian-born Indian Catholic nun, saint, missionary, humanitarian, founder of the Order of the Missionaries of Charity, Nobel Prize for Peace laureate, 1979

World peace will result from inner peace.

 

  • [T]he oppressor must be liberated just as surely as the oppressed. A man who takes away another man's freedom is a prisoner of hatred, he is locked behind the bars of prejudice and narrow-mindedness. I am not truly free if I am taking away someone else's freedom, just as surely as I am not free when my freedom is taken from me. The oppressed and the oppressor alike are robbed of their humanity.

Universal peace may emerge suddenly – like crystals.

  • Universal Peace, assuming it to be in the fullest sense realizable, might not require eons for its accomplishment, however probable this may appear, judging from the imperceptibly slow growth of all great reformatory ideas of the past. [...] Our accepted estimates of the duration of natural metamorphoses, or changes in general, have been thrown in doubt of late. The very foundations of science have been shaken.
    A state of human life vaguely defined by the term "Universal Peace," while a result of cumulative effort through centuries past, might come into existence quickly, not unlike a crystal suddenly forms in a solution which has been slowly prepared. […] There are abundant signs of this progress everywhere. The race enmities and prejudices are decidedly waning.
    We begin to think cosmically. Our sympathetic feelers reach out into the dim distance. The bacteria of the "Weltschmerz," are upon us. Nikola Tesla [LoC 460] (1856-1943) Serbian US American physicist, mechanical and electrical engineer, inventor The Transmission of Electrical Energy Without Wires as a Means for Furthering Peace, presented by Electrical World and Engineer, S. 21-24, 7. January 1905

 

  • Peace requires something far more difficult than revenge or merely turning the other cheek; it requires empathizing with the fears and unmet needs that provide the impetus for people to attack each other. Being aware of those feelings and needs, people lose their desires to attack back because they see the human ignorance leading to those attacks. Instead, their goal becomes providing the empathic connection and education that will enable them to transcend their violence and engage in cooperative relationships. Marshall B. Rosenberg (1934-2015) US American psychologist, psychotherapist, developer of Nonviolent Communication, Marshall Rosenberg's NVC Quotes, PDF, #517, PuddleDancer Press, 2011

 

  • Peace assuredly would pay even larger dividends, but to the wrong people. It is not at all clear how you could make a billion dollars by being peaceable. And so we don't consider or study the means of peace, or make them available to our leaders. We speak well of peace, we say we want it, we have paid the lives of innumerable other people and unaccountable wealth supposedly to get it, but we seem not to mind, we seem not to notice, that all we have got for so much loss, for so long, is more war.

Berlin, 20. July 1945:

Speech at the end of World War II

  • We are here today to raise the flag of victory over the capital of our greatest adversary. […] we must remember that […] we are raising it in the name of the people of the United States, who are looking forward to a better world, a peaceful world, a world in which all the people will have an opportunity to enjoy the good things of life, and not just a few at the top. Let us not forget that we are fighting for peace, and for the welfare of mankind. We are not fighting for conquest. We want peace and prosperity for the world as a whole. We want to see the time come when we can do the things in peace that we have been able to do in war. If we can put this tremendous machine of ours, which has made this victory possible, to work for peace we can look forward to the greatest age in the history of mankind. That is what we propose to do. Harry S. Truman [Intention LoC 495] (1884-1972) 33rd US president during World War II, 33rd degree Freemason, war criminial

 

  • Well, let's put it this way, money trumps peace sometimes. (Calibrated at LoC 365.) George W. Bush [Work LoC 460/450] (*1943) 43rd US American president (2000-2009), convicted war criminal, November 2011, press conference, 14. February 2007 and presidential address, 22. August 2007, cited in: D. Hawkins, Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man, chapter 1, S. 40, 2008

Quotes by various other sources on war / Krieg

  • The Way of the Warrior has been misunderstood. It is not a means to kill and destroy others. Those who seek to compete and better one another are making a terrible mistake. To smash, injure, or destroy is the worst thing a human being can do. The real Way of a Warrior is to prevent such slaughter – it is the Art of Peace, the power of love. Morihei Ueshiba [Great Teacher] (1883-1969) Japanese philosopher, martial artist, creator of the discipline of Aikido, author, speaking of a vision of the "Great Spirit of Peace" during World War II, 1942, cited in: Rodger Hyodo (*1957) Canadian miraculous brain injury healee, personal coach, author, Adjusting Though Reflex. Romancing Zen, S. 76, AuthorHouse, 4. February 2010

 

  • The real Art of Peace is not to sacrifice a single one of your warriors to defeat an enemy. Vanquish your foes by always keeping yourself in a safe and unassailable position; then no one will suffer any losses. The Way of a Warrior, the Art of Politics, is to stop trouble before it starts. It consists in defeating your adversaries spiritually by making them realize the folly of their actions. The Way of a Warrior is to establish harmony. […]
    There are no contests in the Art of Peace. A true warrior is invincible because he or she contests with nothing. Defeat means to defeat the mind of contention that we harbor within. Morihei Ueshiba [Great Teacher] (1883-1969) Japanese philosopher, martial artist, creator of the discipline of Aikido, author, translator John Stevens, The Art of Peace, Shambala, London and Boston, 10. November 1992, 2002

Final insight of a lifelong pacifist

Muted as a result of a stroke and bound to his death bed Hurr wrote this message:

  • War [Below LoC 200] is not the answer.
    Pacifism [LoC 185] is not the answer.
    Spirit [LoC 500+] is the answer.

True Peace (Poem)

* * *

The True Peace


The first peace, which is the most important,
is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship,
their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize
at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit,
and that its center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.
This is the real peace, and the others are but reflections of this.

The second peace is that which is made between two individuals,

and the third peace is that which is made between two nations.

But above all you should understand that there can never be peace between nations
until there is first known that true peace which is within the souls of men.

Peace poem – Tao Te Ching

If there is to be peace in the world,
there must be peace in the nations.

If there is to be peace in the nations,
there must be peace in the cities.

If there is to be peace in the cities,
there must be peace between neighbors.

If there is to be peace between neighbors,
there must be peace in the home.

If there is to be peace in the home,
there must be peace in the heart.

 

Tao Te Ching [The Book of the Way] [LoC 610] 800-200 BC

 

Imagine

Imagine all the people living life in peace.
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.
I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one.

 

John Lennon (1940-1980) English musician, singer-songwriter, founding member of the The Beatles [LoC 460]
