Zitate von D. Hawkins

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

  • Um die Herrschaft der Mentalinhalte zu brechen, muss man die Illusion beseitigen, dass Gedanken persönlich seien, dass sie irgendeinen Wert hätten oder dass sie zum eigenen Selbst gehörten oder aus diesem hervorgingen. Wie der Körper, so sind auch Geist/Gemüt und seine Inhalte tatsächlich ein Produkt der Welt. Man wird mit einem Organ, genannt Gehirn, geboren, das genetisch festgelegt ist, bestimmte Strukturen und Fähigkeiten ebenso wie Einschränkungen auszudrücken. Dies geschieht in Abhängigkeit von den Chromosomen und genetischen Kombinationen, den DNA-Sequenzen, etc. Nachdem auf diese Weise alles genetisch zurechtgestutzt ist, beginnt ein zerbrechliches, komplexes Wachstumsmuster von Gehirnneuronen und Synapsen, die jetzt den Einflüssen während der Schwangerschaft und den nachgeburtlichen Schicksalen ausgesetzt sind, wie beispielsweise Ernährung, Pflege und der emotionalen und intellektuellen Umwelt. Gleichzeitig machen sich die Einflüsse einer unendlichen Zahl von Neurotransmittern, Neurohormonen, umweltbedingten Zufälligkeiten und Programmierungen bemerkbar. Der IQ ist bereits geprägt. Die Gehirnwindungen sind schon an ihrem Platz, und jetzt muss man das Beste daraus machen, denn die Gesellschaft in all ihrer Komplexität und Irrtumsbefangenheit macht sich jetzt daran, dieses ohnehin schon defekte Organ systematisch mit Software von fragwürdiger Genauigkeit, Nützlichkeit oder Wahrhaftigkeit zu programmieren. Das All-sehende Auge, S. 154-155, 2005

 


Chrysanthemen
  • Alle scheinbaren Gegensatzpaare sind Illusionen von Polarität, die automatisch aus einer Denkposition erwachsen. […] Vermeide die Denkfalle, Egoismus als falsch oder schlecht und Selbstlosigkeit als richtig oder gut zu bezeichnen. Sie stellen lediglich verschiedene Grade in der Bewusstseinsentwicklung dar und sind Alternativen, jedoch keine Gegensätze. FU Licht des Alls. Die Wirklichkeit des Göttlichen, S. 321, 2006

 

  • Wenn sich Bewusstsein entwickelt, […] lernt man, die infantile Illusion, wonach die Wünsche oder eingebildeten Rechte und Erwartungen des Egos befriedigt werden müssen, zugunsten eines erfolgreichen Strebens aufzugeben. Das kindische, narzisstische Ego […] entdeckt, dass Überleben und Erfolg von der Aufgabe solcher Infantilität und dem Erlernen von Kooperation abhängen. Im Gegenzug erhält das Ego nun Liebe und Anerkennung, indem es lernt, zu teilen und geduldig zu sein. […] Wenn diese Art [verantwortungsvoller] Elternschaft fehlt, bleibt der Infantilismus zusammen mit daraus erwachsenem Groll, Ärger und Selbstmitleid bestehen. OU Licht des Alls. Die Wirklichkeit des Göttlichen, S. 322, 2006

 

  • So genannten Zufälle sind eine Illusion der Wahrnehmung im Bereich von Form, die auf linearer Erwartung beruht. Durch kinesiologischen Test werden die verborgenen Elemente aufgedeckt, und die Illusion eines "Zufalls" verschwindet. Die einzige hypothetische Möglichkeit dafür, dass ein wirklicher Zufall auftreten könnte, würde voraussetzen, dass er sich außerhalb des All-Seins der Schöpfung ereignen würde, was eine Unmöglichkeit darstellt. Damit man einen so genannten Zufall überhaupt beobachten kann, muss er schon ex definitionem im erkennbaren Universum aufgetreten sein. Jedes Ding stellt die Folge der Auswirkung des gesamten Universums durch alle Zeit hindurch dar. Nichts befindet sich außerhalb der karmischen, ausgeglichenen Harmonie des Universums. OU Licht des Alls. Die Wirklichkeit des Göttlichen, S. 139, 2006

Quotes by D. Hawkins

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

  • Spiritual evolution occurs as the result of removing obstacles and not actually acquiring anything new. Devotion enables surrender of the mind's vanities and cherished illusions so that it progressively becomes more free and more open to the light of Truth. Source unknown

 

 

  • Once seen in its totality, everything is perfect at all times and nothing needs an external cause to change it in any way. From the viewpoint of the ego's positionality and limited scope, the world seems to need endless fixing and correction. This illusion collapses as a vanity. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 107, 2001

 

 

  • At some point, the illusion breaks down and the opening for the start of the spiritual quest commences. The quest turns from without to within and the search for answers begins. With good fortune, one comes upon the teachings of true enlightenment and does not deviate from the core of those teachings. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 115, 2001

 

  • This life is the subjective adventure of that mysterious entity called 'I'. This current experience of the 'I' may consider itself physical, but that in itself is an illusion. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 169, 2001

 


Cattleya, 7. February 2013
  • In its broadest and most basic sense, renunciation means the discarding of illusion and the obstruction to the realization of truth and the Reality of God. Thus, all pathways to God renounce falsity and are devoted to that which radiates love, peace, holiness, compassion, forgiveness, mercy and charity. It also means the choice of renouncing ignorance for Truth, darkness for Light, and the temptations of the ego, such as hatred, anger, pride, malice, greed and selfishness. Renunciation also means freedom from the dualistic trap of denunciation, or from becoming polarized and trapped in the positionalities of the 'polarities of the opposites'. The simplest renunciation is simply refusal. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 121, 2003

 

  • Question: What perpetuates the illusions of the world?
    Answer: The pleasure of profit, power, prestige, and money of the charismatic, politically savvy game players who have learned how to manipulate the egos of the populace and play on human ignorance perpetuates the illusions. This is facilitated by the mastery of the media, which is the latest game board on which image is used to control and seduce. The media have discovered that it is not even necessary to have any reality whatsoever behind images. The so-called 'nonlinear' (here used differently than in the foregoing) imaging techniques simply bypass reason and the intellect and directly program the mind of the populace without any interference. Reality is now considered to be irrelevant. (In current discussions, it is bantered about whether an objective reality even exists.) By Pavlovian conditioning, the naive mind is quickly programmed and does not even realize that it is being programmed. To the non-integrous, such values as peace, honesty, caring, genuineness, and love are merely images to be exploited. Distortion is currently the most favored manipulation in which images bypass reason. I. Reality and Subjectivity, Considerations S. 246, 2003

 

  • The mind of the aspirant has to bypass and refuse temptations. Later it will be seen that nothing was lost as that temptation was just another illusion. The aspirant gives up the vanities of opinionation and the duties of saving the world. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 301, 2003

 

 

  • [...] the ego has to be first accepted as though it is a reality in order to be dealt with before it can be transcended. At the higher levels, the ego is seen to be an illusion, without any innate reality. [...] A naive student might hear, for example, that the ego is an illusion and then presume that 'I don’t believe in the ego. It’s just an illusion.' At this point, it is actually the student’s ego that is making such a statement. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 329, 2003

 

  • A naive student might hear, for example, that the ego is an illusion and then presume that 'I don't believe in the ego. It's just an illusion.' At this point, it is actually the student's ego that is making such a statement. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 329, 2003

 

  • The ego, or more accurately, the belief that one is the ego, obscures the Realization of the Reality of the Self as the Oneness of All That Is. The dissolution of the ego results in liberation from the bondage of the illusions that create suffering. These illusions are susceptible to fearless scrutiny that reveals the underlying fallacies. The only tool needed is the willingness to unreservedly surrender all beliefs, opinions and attitudes to God. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 385, 2003

 

  • Enslavement by illusion is comfortable; it is the liberation by truth that people fear. Truth versus Falsehood, Dedication, 2005

 

  • Certainty is the consequence and the fulfillment of the requirements of subjectivity. The quality of "realness" is itself a purely subjective condition. Therein, however, lies the trap of illusion. The central problem of illusion is not that it is unreal or fallacious, but that it seems real, as noted by Socrates twenty-five hundred years ago. Thus, even certainty is a primary illusion that is often clung to out of fear, doubt, or uncertainty. On the other hand, with maturity, doubt can be accepted and reconceptualized as being necessary to progress and therefore a useful tool for investigation and growth. Truth vs. Falsehood. How to Tell the Difference, chapter 8 Fact Versus Fiction: Reality and Illusion, S. 74, 2005

Truth and devotion

Alternative source: Along the Path to Enlightenment. 365 Reflections from David R. Hawkins, S. 24, Reflection of February 12th, January 2011

  • Spiritual evolution is the automatic consequence of watching the mind from the general viewpoint of context rather then content. Instead of trying to force change, it is merely necessary to allow Divinity to do so by deeply surrendering all control, resistance, and illusions of gain or loss. It is not necessary to attack illusions but to merely allow them to fall away. It is not necessary, nor fruitful to use force by such mechanisms as guilt, nor is it necessary to try to pursue or propel spiritual evolution because it automatically evolves of it's own accord when the obstacles and resistances of illusions are surrendered. Transcending Levels of Consciousness. The Stairway to Enlightenment, chapter 21 Transcending The Mind, S. 354, 2006

 

  • Temptation, seduction, desirability, and allure are all projections having to do with appearance and presumptions. These are associated with programmed fantasies of gain.  Satisfaction of projected values constitutes the world of illusion. Happiness itself is directly correlated with the overall level of consciousness rather than with any external factors. Discovery of the Presence of God. Devotional Nonduality, S. 223, 2007

 

 

 


 

  • One has the illusion that one couldn't get through life unless one thinks. No such thing happens. It is not necessary for any individual to be there. It is not necessary to think that there is an "I" that is responsible for one's actions. Everything is doing itself. It is the vanity of the ego to say 'I did this, I thought that, I decided that.' There is no such 'I' at all. All these things are deciding themselves and doing themselves, all by themselves. Interview with David R. Hawkins, Dialogues on Consciousness and Spirituality, transcript on Advanced States of Consciousness, part 2, S. 21-22-23, spiral-bound, Veritas Publishing, Sedona, Arizona, 1. January 1998 Transcript removed from Veritaspub' sale offer in mid 2013

 

  • Very often one has illusions about the nature of reality. They have to be let go also. That there is a good and a bad, a desirable and undesirable, that is all in your mind. So you realize that the sun shines and then the clouds come up and then the rain falls. The grass grows up and dies, the stock market goes up and down, age comes and goes, people arise and leave. So you see there is the ebb and flow and if one is at this part of the cycle there is no point in crying about it, because the cycle will cycle itself out. Sedona Seminar Devotion: The Way to God Through the Heart, DVD 1 of 3, track 5, minute ~38:00-39:00, 27. September 2002

 

  • Question: Recently I was accused of sabotage and conspiracy in the company I was in. You said that whatever you affirm in yourself evokes its opposite. So like I affirmed lovingness in myself about a year ago and that's when things fell apart. And so I'm wondering, do I ever see anything purely or is everything I see a projection of myself?
    Answer: Everything you see is a projection. Pray for the one in you that may have bore false witness to others. Pray for forgiveness as if you were currently guilty of it. Sedona Seminar God, Religion and Spirituality, CD 4 of 4, minute 57:15, 10. December 2005

 

  • Question: Today you called the physical world an illusion. [...]
    Answer: No, I don't call the physical world an illusion. How you perceive it is illusory but its existence is not illusory. How you perceive it as kind or cruel, disaster or blessing [...] is subjective. Sedona Seminar Experiential Reality: The Mystic, 3 DVD set, 8. December 2007

Illusion of a personal "I"

  • You have the presumption there is a personal "you" that is the initiator, the decider and the doer. To jump ahead of this illusion, has to be done faster that 1/10,000th of a second. The leading edge of the ego, the personal "I" jumps in in 1/10,000th of a second and claims to be the author the initiator and the experiencer. Through the spiritual styles […] it is possible to transcend that. And the mind becomes silent.
    People identify automatically and most importantly as the doer, […] the chooser, the one who feels, the one who wants, […] who makes decisions […]. There is no 'you', making any decision about anything at all. All that is 100% illusion. There is no personal 'you' deciding what to say. It is all happening autonomously and your rise to that observation as you move to identifying as a personal self and move to the witness-observer. The witness-observer notices that as soon as a decision is made or something happens a sense of personal 'I' jumps in and claims authorship. The hardest thing to get over, as a mind, is the claiming of authorship of a personal "I". There is no personal "I" making any decisions. All this is happening autonomously including the illusion that there is a personal "I". Therefore you don't have to feel guilty about considering yourself to be an independent decider or initiator of action and thoughts and feelings because even that is happening autonomously without asking your permission. Sedona Seminar Experiential Reality: The Mystic, 3 DVD set, 8. December 2007

  • Das Irdische ist eine Illusion,
    doch verweigerst du dich ihm,
    wirst du nur schwerlich zum Buddha werden. […]
    Das Überirdische ist wahr.
    Wenn du jedoch daran festhältst,
    wird sich sein Glanz verhüllen.
    Gautama Buddha [BW 1000] (563-483 v. Chr.) indischer Avatar, Lehrer der Erleuchtung, Zentralfigur des Buddhismus

 

  • Sobald wir Trugbild und Schein durchschauen, ist alles erfüllt von Lebendigkeit und Chancen.
    Solange wir Trugbild und Schein nicht durchschauen, stellen sich uns Hindernisse und Mühsal entgegen.

  • Das Ergebnis all dessen ist, dass die Erscheinungen der Welt real sind, wenn sie als das Selbst erfahren werden und illusionär, wenn sie als getrennt vom Selbst wahrgenommen werden. Sri Ramana Maharshi [BW 720] (1879-1950) indisch-hinduistischer Weiser, Heiliger, Große Meister Indiens

 

  • Illusion ist die Verpackung der Dinge; Wirklichkeit ist die Tiefe der Dinge. Der Körper ist die Illusion; die Seele ist die Wirklichkeit. Die Blume ist die Illusion; der Duft ist die Wirklichkeit. Der Duft ist der Geist der Blume, er besteht. Hazrat Inayat Khan [BW 499] (1882-1927) indischer Gründer des Internationalen Sufi-Ordens und der Internationalen Sufi-Bewegung, Aphorismen

 

  • Wer Illusionen aufgeben kann, wer andere und sich so sehen kann, wie sie sind und wie er ist, wer lernen kann, zu sich zu kommen statt andauernd auszugehen, wer den Unterschied zwischen Leben und Dingen, zwischen Glück und Erregung, zwischen Mittel und Zweck und insbesondere zwischen Liebe und Gewalt spüren kann, der hat schon die ersten Schritte zu einer Liebe zum Leben getan. Nach den ersten Schritten sollte man erneut Fragen stellen. Bedeutsame Antworten lassen sich in einer Reihe von Büchern finden, meistens aber in einem selbst. Erich Fromm (1900-1980) deutsch-US-amerikanischer Sozialpsychologe, Psychoanalytiker, humanistischer Philosoph

    Wo bleibt dann der Süden und der Norden?
    Durch Illusion wird die Welt eingeschlossen.

Question

  • Are you aware that you are conditioned? That is the first thing to ask yourself, not how to be free of your conditioning. You may never be free of it, and if you say, ‘I must be free of it,’ you may fall into another trap of another form of conditioning. So are you aware that you are conditioned? Do you know that even when you look at a tree and say, ‘That is an oak tree,’ or ‘that is a banyan tree, the naming of the tree, which is botanical knowledge, has so conditioned your mind that the word comes between you and actually seeing the tree? To come in contact with the tree you have to put your hand on it and the word will not help you to touch it. Jiddu Krishnamurti [LoC 525⇒175] (1895-1986) Indian spiritual teacher, declined member of the Theosophical Society, philosopher, author, Freedom from the Known, S. ?, 1969, HarperOne, new edition 10.

Insights

  • To be a living being is not the ultimate state; there is something beyond, much more wonderful, which is neither being nor non-being, neither living nor not-living. It is a state of pure awareness, beyond the limitations of space and time. Once the illusion that the body-mind is oneself is abandoned, death loses its terror, it becomes a part of living. Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj [LoC 720] (1897-1981) Indian Hindu sage of the Advaita Vedanta tradition

 

  • What is suffering? What is death? In reality, they do not have any existence. They appear within the framework of the manifestations produced by the mind wrapped up in an illusion. [...] In the emptiness of mind, there is no death. No one dies. There is no suffering and no fear. Bokar Rinpoche (1940-2004) Tibetan Buddhist holder of the Karma Kagyü and Shangpa Kagyü lineages

 

 

  • Illusion is the cover of things; reality is the depth of things. The body is the illusion; the soul is the reality. The flower is the illusion; the fragrance is the reality. The fragrance is the spirit of the flower; it persists.   Hazrat Inayat Khan [LoC 499] (1882-1927) Indian founder of the International Sufi Order and the International Sufi movement, Aphorisms

Two kinds of realities

Reality of Love vs. illusion of fear

  • There are two parallel universes: one is Real, Ultimate, Love. The other is the world that we've made as the product of our thought (some of it love, some of it fear). Sometimes when we're lost in the illusion and can't find the love, we need to take a moment and remember what's True. LIke Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, click your heals together three times, and pray,
    "I want to go home. I want to go home. I want to go home."
We can't "fix" the illusion, but we can withdraw our attachment to the idea that it's real. Throw light on every aspect of your life, forgive yourself and others for any fear-based miscreations, and commit in your heart to letting God be in charge today. As long as we remember to let Love lead us in thought and action, we're protected from the craziness that otherwise sets in. Marianne Williamson (*1952) US American spiritual teacher, political activist, visionary, lecturer, author, Facebook message, 26. October 2012

 

  • Time does not exist independently of ourselves, it is simply an illusion and measurement of our minds and body’s perceptions. David Lewis Anderson, US American time travel researcher

 

  • Those who see the true nature of our universe and reality see that it is a fabric woven only of information and energy. Concepts such as elementary particles, space, time, material substance and isolated objects simply are illusions that do not exist and have lost their meaning. David Lewis Anderson, US American time travel researcher
