Verantwortung übernehmen – der Schlüssel zur Weiterentwicklung
Was immer man transzendieren (überwinden) möchte, muss man sich zu eigen machen und als existent anerkennen. Wer etwas Ungeliebtes unterdrückt, projiziert das nach außen, auf die Mitwelt und die Gesellschaft. Wer Verantwortung für das Unliebsame übernimmt, ermöglicht es, sich weiterzuentwickeln.
Wenn eine Lebenskrise auftaucht, ist die Gelegenheit für wirkliches Wachstum gegeben. Die Zeit davor ist die Vorbereitung. In der Krisenzeit ist man gefordert, die gelernten Prinzipien anzuwenden.
Zitate zum Thema Transzendenz und Ebenenwechsel / Transcending and level leaping
Zitate von D. Hawkins
- Das eventuelle Eintreten eines bedeutenden Bewusstseinssprungs wird von den meisten Aspiranten selten als ernsthafte Möglichkeit und noch weniger als Wahrscheinlichkeit in Betracht gezogen. Sie haben dafür keine vorsorgenden Pläne gemacht, da sie nicht vorgewarnt waren. Deshalb sollten ernsthafte Schüler informiert sein und spirituelle Begleiter oder Bezugspersonen haben, die in der Lage sind, solche fortgeschrittenen Bewusstseinszustände zu erkennen. FU Erleuchtung ist möglich. Wie man die Ebenen des Bewusstseins durchschreitet, S. 287, 2007
Quotes by D. Hawkins
Revenging, resenting, self-pitying, making oneself and others wrong
- To renounce; to be willing to surrender out of devotion to God, the satisfaction of the gratification one gets out of one's mental gyrations. To juice revenge, to juice resentment, to juice self-pity; at the same time, not make them wrong. You see, we let go of these positions, we let go of our attachment to them, but not out of guilt, and making them wrong. I like to complain and grumble. I say to her [Laughter], Honey, if we didn't have each other to complain and grumble to, who the heck would we talk to. One of our forms of love [...] the air conditioning in my car doesn't work now. Now I can't drive it to Phoenix, because it doesn't work. She says, 'Oh, that's awful, you can take my car.' [Laughter.] You got to have someone to grumble with, to be human with. ('I have this neighbor Lou ... I sure hope he has someone to complain to.') Sedona Seminar Karma and the Afterlife, DVD 1 of 3, October 2002
- Don't force change, just observe / document. Source unknown
- In this interconnected universe, every improvement we make in our private world improves the world at large for everyone. We all float on the collective level of consciousness of mankind, so that any increment we add comes back to us. We all add to our common buoyancy by our efforts to benefit life. It is a scientific fact that what is good for you is good for me. Power versus Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, S. ?, Hay House, February 2002
- Nonetheless, it's possible to make sudden positive jumps, leaping up even hundred of points. If one can truly escape the egocentric draw of sub-200 attractor fields, consciously choosing a friendly, earnest, kind, and forgiving approach to life, and eventually making charity toward others one's primary focus, higher levels can certainly be attained. Power versus Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, chapter 6 New Horizons in Research, S. 102, Hay House, February 2002
- It isn't uncommon for them [who had attained high states of consciousness in the 500s] to leave all that the material world represents and become seekers of truth; many who had transcendental experiences with LSD in the 1960s did the same thing. Such higher states are also attained through the experiences of love and religion, classical music or art, or through the practice of spiritual disciplines. Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, chapter 6 New Horizons in Research, S. 105, Hay House, February 2002
- Growth and development are irregular and nonlinear. Practically nothing is known about the essential nature of growth, or any "process" in nature for that matter. No one has ever studied the nature of life itself, only its images and consequences. There simply has not been an adequate mathematics to comprehend it; linear differential equations brought us to approximations but not to essence. A simple sprouting seed performs incredible wonders through an intricate wizardry of which we have no understanding whatsoever. Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, Part Three: Meaning, The Evolution of Consciousness, S. 237, Hay House, February 2002
- As is commonly observed, growth, both individual and collective, can take place either slowly or suddenly. It is not limited by restraints, but by tendencies. Innumerable options are open to everyone all the time but are relatively infrequently chosen, because they want the context that would make them attractive. One's range of choice is ordinarily limited by one's vision. Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, Part Three: Meaning, The Evolution of Consciousness, S. 237, Hay House, February 2002
- There is no inner 'thinker' behind thoughts, no 'doer' behind actions, no 'seeker' of enlightenment. Seeking occurs on its own when the time is right, and it emerges as a focus of attention. All aspects and qualities of consciousness are self-actuating and energize each other under the general direction of the will. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 132, 2001
- To transcend the mind is to see that the many and the one are the same. Without the contrasting mental dualistic terms of "many" or "one", neither would be said to exist. Instead, there could only be the realization that "ALL IS". There is no subject and object possible in the sentence, "ALL IS". The Eye of the I from Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 358, Veritas Publishing, revised edition 2002
- When the obstacles of human mentation, emotionality and the ego's structures from which they are derived are transcended, the Self as God, immanent shines forth of its own accord, just as the sun shines forth when the clouds are removed. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 16, 2003
- Question: What is due to the teacher?
Answer: Nothing at all. The listener’s interest is more than sufficient. The only obligation one should accept is the obligation to one’s own self to institute the wisdoms that were learned and to practice them in order to transcend the ego. Respect the teacher but save reverence only for God. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 18, 2003
- Question: If the ego is biologically-rooted, genetically propagated, societally reinforced, and strongly reprogrammed, how can it be overcome?
Answer: It can be transcended. More important is not the nature of the ego but the problem of identification with it as the 'me', the 'I', or 'myself'. The ego was inherited as an 'it', and is actually an impersonal 'it'. The problem arises because one personalizes and identifies with it. That 'it' of the ego structure is not unique or individual, and it is relatively similar, with karmic variations, in everyone. What really varies from individual to individual is the degree to which one is enslaved by its programs. The degree of dominance is therefore determined by the extent to which one identifies with it. Inherently, it has no power, and the power to decline the ego's programs increases exponentially as one progresses spiritually. That is the real meaning of the Scale of Consciousness. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 112, 2003
- Question: Spiritual progress can seem slow or become suddenly rapid and unexpected.
Answer: Humility and surrender at great depth, as well as prayer, can shorten the process. The seeming duration of time is because one is looking for result. Even when the ego's energies have been 'disconnected', its momentum seems to need to run out. For instance, when a giant ship, such as a great tanker, stops it engines, it often continues several mile farther before it finally comes to a stop. [...] Once faith in the reality of the ego as being the true self is undermined, its dissolution has already begun. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 188-189, 2003
- Like a radio that converts unseen energy waves into intelligible sound, the brain is a receiver instrument of the energies of thought forms. Thus the attractor fields of the nonlinear domain of consciousness influence many 'minds' and brains simultaneously. Like an unseen radio transmitter, the attractor field radiates a field which is accessible to those instruments with which it has concordance. (Note that the mechanism is concordance and not causality.)
A calibrated level of consciousness then exists as an independent field that contains concordant thought forms attuned to the 'frequency' of that attractor field. The field therefore sustains, supports and gives a 'home' to similar thought forms. If an individual mind attunes to that level of consciousness, the field then tends to potentiate the emergence of associated thoughts. This may result in the phenomenon of entrainment as the associated emotions increase the energy of alignment and commitment to the field and its personification as 'me'.
Thus, we see great masses of people emoting and behaving in concert as though hypnotized. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 215, 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
- While the world may have the expectation that the life of a spiritually committed person should be holy and tranquil, quite often the opposite may occur. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 337, 2003
- The ego is not overcome by condemnation, hatred, and guilt; rather, one deenergizes it by viewing it objectively for what it truly is, i.e., a vestigial remnant of man's evolutionary origins. Truth vs. Falsehood. How to Tell the Difference, S. 35, 2005
- The discovery that we are all passengers on an evolutionary train recontextualizes life in that all that we suffer, endure and ultimately transcend serves our individual and collective ultimate goal. This understanding brings gratitude and peace to our life.
The realization allows us to transcend any self pity and resentment and to dedicate our life to love and to God, thus sanctifying it. In doing so, we coalesce the ultimate goals of all religions. The spiritual love with which this commitment is made coalesces the commitments of life. Truth vs. Falsehood. How to Tell the Difference. How to Tell the Difference, chapter 10, S. 179, 2005
- Transcendence requires the willingness to surrender primary positionalities:
- Harboring chronic resentments and milking "injustices".
- Unrealistic expectations of the world and relationships, including expectations of conveniences, agreement, approval, compliance, and others.
- Surrendering self-centeredness as a lifestyle and focusing on changing oneself instead of the world. [...]
- Willingness to surrender the residual infantile expectations (of age two) of self, others, and the perceived imperfect world.
- Taking responsibility for bringing inner infantile attitudes to the surface and subordinating them to mature and essentially more gratifying processes, such as reason, balance and concern for others.
- Realize that resentment or anger is not about what others "are" but about what they "are not". [...]
- Accepting human fallibility and limitation that, in a portion of the population, is due to an inborn incapacity to be self-honest.
- 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
- Evolutionary emergence of potential occurs as transitions that are rewarding and confirmatory overall. However, there are also transitory periods that are discomforting, and they are also to be expected. There may be periods of feeling estranged, depersonalized, or 'not like myself.' There may also be times of confusion or feeling 'spacey' or disorganized. These are due to the adjustments resulting from shifts of context and their experiential familiarity and customary sense of subjectivity. The sense of 'realness' or self-identity progressively expands and alters prior belief systems of 'who I am,' as they transform into 'what I am'. Therefore, there may be progressive changes in values, goals, and prioritization of time and effort. These transitional periods are temporary, and ease of transition is aided by prayer, spiritual practices, and especially, a contemplative lifestyle. Discovery of the Presence of God. Devotional Nonduality, S. 241, 2007
- Subjectively, all that is needed to progress are [Geduld|patience]], prayer, faith in the process, and the surrendering of resistances. Confusion, like the changes in the weather, is a transitional condition that clears with patience and emergence into the next stage, whereby the confusing condition is transcended. Divine harmony restores equilibrium in time. All is actually in Divine Order. It isn't possible to get 'lost' to God anymore than a tennis ball gets lost to gravity just because it's temporarily bouncing. Discovery of the Presence of God. Devotional Nonduality, S. 242, 2007
- It is of little benefit to be personally self-critical or think that one 'should' be farther along the road than they are. Spiritual evolution is irregular and at times often seems sporadic and at other times stationary. Realize that guilt is a narcissistic indulgence. There may be long, dry periods where seemingly nothing is progressing. This is a deception; a 'long, dry period' is what is happening as though it were a test of resolve. These periods can be traversed by transcending the spiritual ego's wish to seek gain via 'progress.' Frustration itself is therefore a sign of trying to control that which is not really controllable. Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man, chapter 19 "Practicum", S. 351-352, 2008
- A fast track to this effortless state is provided by the simple technique of focused relinquishment of resisting the perception/experiencing of the passage or duration of time. This is a surprisingly simple yet very powerful technique, and the reward is a sudden relief from the constant unconscious pressure of 'time', which subtly contextualizes and colors the experiencing of worldly life. Breaking the dominance of the illusion of time is very doable. It is then discovered that time is a projection from consciousness and only a belief system out which the ego 'time tracks' the witnessing of the emergence of phenomena. With release from dominance, there is a great sense of freedom and inner joy. Reality, Spirituality, and Modern Man, chapter 19 Practicum, S. 355-356, 2008
- Question: How can one facilitate progress?
Answer: That is a natural curiosity. Choice results in proclivities that become habitual mind-sets of attention. Within each moment are all the necessary elements for realization. Look for essence rather than just appearance. Everything is perfect if seen as it really is. Everything is exactly the way it is "supposed to be," whether it is shiny and new or rusty and dusty.
Avoid adjectives, for they are all projected, mentalized qualifications. Later, one can even drop verbs and adverbs for nothing is actually "doing" anything; it just innately IS. Transition is a phenomenon that stems from within the observer who sees sequence as a verb. If seen in less than 1/10000th of a second, everything appears to be stationary.

- Spiritual evolution is the automatic consequence of watching the mind – and its proclivities as an "it" – from the general viewpoint of the paradigm of context rather than 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 destroy or attack illusions but merely to allow them to fall away. Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self. Contemplations from the Teachings of David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., edited by Scott Jeffrey, S. 97, last quote, Hay House, August 2011
- In the practice of medicine, the bureaucratic oppression is enormous and continuous. Every single move one makes is monitored by numerous agencies. Is that freedom? No, that is not freedom. So one has to transcend the polarities of right and wrong, good and bad. That takes one into a different domain of unconditional love [LoC 540+] Landsberg speech Dialogue on Consciousness and Spirituality, medical faculty, University of San Francisco, 1997
- In essence, Genesis is truthful. […] What it is really saying is out of the unmanifest emerged the manifest as light, which is the energy of divinity, which when it implodes upon matter takes the form of life. All that is manifest arises out of that which is unmanifest. Therefore it calibrates true. Reality has no beginning or end, beyond time and dimension. Audio series The Highest Level of Enlightenment, collection of seminar snippets, CD 4 of 6, track 10, Nightingale-Conant, 2005
- The inspiration to evolve spiritually is already a manifestation of the presence of God within, and it's certainly indicative of good karma. Just to want to know truth, to evolve, to improve oneself, to become a better person, to fulfill one's potential – those are all inspirations. And the person doesn't make them up; they just come to them. It's like an innate desire to fulfill your potential.
That potential as one evolves it becomes more and more identified in spirituality – the capacity to love, to forgive, to appreciate, to see the beauty in all that exists, to live in peace and harmony instead of discord and strife.
And I'll tell you what happens. It becomes more important to succeed than to win. Anybody can win. It doesn't mean anything. It's success.
Spiritual evolution is the willingness to give up games and seeming wins for a greater goal which is the evolution of your own consciousness. […] to give up selfishness because what is the ego except selfishness in all its desires. […]
The universe responds to the willingness to surrender that. As I said it's like an electrostatic field. You start praying to God for spiritual guidance and all and your life begins to change.
It unfolds automatically. […] The only requirement is to do whatever you do to the best of your capacity and leave the rest up to God. Untitled audio interview with David R. Hawkins, presented by suspended US American web radio station Beyond the Ordinary, hosts Nancy Lorenz and Elena Young, 60 minutes duration, aired 10. February 2004
- Everything happens spontaneously of its own as a consequence of potentiality emerging as actuality. So you don't see change. What you see is emergence. [...] Phenomena come and go as potentiality becomes actuality [...] when local conditions are favorable. [...] With intention we can influence potentiality manifesting as actuality. The mere intention […] to become more and more spiritually evolved is already very powerful. [...]
Could be that some people's consciousness level is not sufficiently strong to very seriously effect the outcome. However other people's consciousness level is very powerful and they could profoundly effect outcomes. Q&A Audio interview with Dr. David R.

- The classic dictum is "you are tested all along the way". Tested by the opposite of that which you have now affirmed in yourself. You vow to be forgiving and the next thing that happens is unforgivable. The sincerity of one’s dedication is always bringing up one’s opposite, which is beneficial. You want to overcome selfishness and you get offered a lucrative deal if you cut corners so this is the karmic opportunity to become that to which you have become committed as an actuality. Everyone who advances in consciousness is faced with the challenge to their current level of consciousness. Q&A Audio interview with Dr. David R. Hawkins, MP3, presented by US American ACIM web radio station Miracles Center, Sedona, Arizona, host Ellen Sutherland, 1 hour duration (Pal Talk), 10. November 2005
- So you realize that the sun shines and then the clouds come and the rain falls and 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's an ebb and flow and if one is at this point of the cycle there is no point in crying about it. [...] And by surrendering to what is cycling up is how one disappears it eventually. Sedona Seminar Devotion: The Way to God Through the Heart, DVD 1 of 3, minute 38:-39:00, 27. September 2002
- [Y]ou take your own self with a dash of salt. […] [Y]ou can't take yourself too seriously. You indulge yourself, but you can't take yourself too seriously. You can have a tantrum, you can throw yourself on the floor, it's good, it's fun. [Laughter.] You throw yourself on the floor. Within all of us, is a vindictive judge […] so you don't make it wrong. So, to transcend something you have to be able to accept it, you have to get off the right and wrong about it. Sedona Seminar Karma and the Afterlife, DVD 1 of 3, October 2002
- Question: What is the ultimate purpose of negativity if God is consciousness and love?

Die vier Stadien, die generell beim Geburtsprozess durchlaufen werden, nennt Grof perinatale Matrizen.
- Wenn sich in der inneren Erfahrung der Wechsel von den negativen zu den positiven perinatalen Matrizen* vollzieht, gewinnt das Leben ungemein an Reiz und die Lebensfreude nimmt beträchtlich zu. Man ist in der Lage, vom gegenwärtigen Augenblick Befriedigung und Erfüllung zu beziehen und von vielen gewöhnlichen Situationen und Funktionen – etwa vom Essen, von der sexuellen Betätigung, von alltäglichen Begegnungen mit anderen Menschen, von seiner Tätigkeit am Arbeitsplatz, von Kunst, Musik, Spielen oder Spaziergängen in der Natur. Dadurch verringert sich der emotionale Einsatz für komplizierte Ziele, die man zu einem zukünftigen Zeitpunkt zu erreichen hofft, [...] erheblich. Mit diesem Lebensgefühl wird offenkundig, dass das letzte Maß für den Lebensstandard die Qualität der Erfahrung des Lebens als solches ist, nicht die Quantität der Leistungen und des materiellen Besitzes.

- Traditionell musste man sich entscheiden: Entweder lebte man ein weltliches Leben oder man wählte ein religiöses Leben und ging ins Kloster. Im Gegensatz dazu wird heute die Wichtigkeit betont, beides zusammenzubringen. Immer mehr Menschen bleiben in der weltlichen Gemeinschaft und wenden spirituelle Lehren und Bewusstheit an. Es ist zu hoffen, dass sie auf diese Weise wirklich einen Einfluss auf die Geschehnisse in der Welt ausüben können.

- Transzendenz bedeutet, alles einzuschließen, denn dann sind wir nicht länger vom Schatten besessen. Wer wirklich erwacht ist, dürfte auf ähnliche Weise nicht länger vom Ego besessen sein oder sich besonders darüber beunruhigen. Solange wir im Bereich der Dualität leben, ist hingegen mit der Annahme, es gäbe keinen Schatten, ein Risiko verbunden. In der Dualität ist Freundlichkeit besser als Grausamkeit, Liebe besser als Angst und Freiheit besser als Knechtschaft. Solange wir an diesen Werten festhalten, müssen wir anerkennen, dass wir in einer Welt mit einem Schatten leben. […] Wir haben die Fähigkeit zur Transzendenz. Die Frage, die sich stellt, lautet dann: Wie kommen wir zurück und leben in dieser Welt, in der wir Wertvorstellungen haben und in der es tatsächlich Schatten gibt?

- Eine der Schwierigkeiten oder Fallen, die mit einer auf Transzendenz abzielenden spirituellen Praxis verbunden ist, ist das Verleugnen oder die Verneinung – weil wir keine Wut, keine Gier, keinen Hass und keine Täuschung wollen, tun wir so, als hätten wir diese Eigenschaften nicht. Trotzdem tauchen sie in unserem Erleben immer wieder auf. Das Wichtigste dabei ist, zur Authentizität zurückzukehren und die Wahrheit zu sagen. Solange ich Wut oder Angst oder Schuld oder Gier oder irgendeine andere negative Regung erlebe, ist es besser, diese als solche anzuerkennen, damit zu arbeiten und sie loszulassen, als in Verdrängung zu verfallen. Leugnen wir solche Eigenschaften nämlich, haben sie die Tendenz, in ganz unerwarteter Weise wieder zum Vorschein zu kommen.

- Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it.

- [M]ost of the ancient traditions in their more obvious forms are addicted to transcendence, are addicted to a privileging of the light over the forms that are born out of the light. So [they] are fundamentally concerned with helping us get into radical connection with the light, with the danger of dropping relationships, the world, justice, our relationship with all other creatures, in the process. […] [T]his radical addiction to transcendence is a very great subtle temptation [that] most people on the Path do not avoid. […]
[A] marrying of the Divine Light consciousness with the mind and the heart and the body […] cannot be done without an immersion in the shadow [of the mystical traditions’ addiction to transcendence, the body hatred, sexual shame, the collective defeat triggering denial, disbelief, disillusion] and a profound desire to our own personal shadow [the traumas, the personal addiction to an addicted society]. So the descent of the light into the mind, the heart, and the body can only be accomplished by a surrender to this very difficult, very grueling process. Audio interview with Andrew Harvey andrewharvey.net (*1952) Indian-British religious scholar, Rumi translator and explicator, teacher of mystic traditions, architect of Sacred Activism, poet, novelist, author, Evolutionary Mysticism, transcript, presented by Sounds True, Insights at the Edge, host Tami Simon, minute 36:18, 59:22 minutes duration, aired 22.

- It seems to me that one of the most basic human experiences, one that is genuinely universal, and unites, or more precisely could unite all of humanity, is the experience of transcendence, in the broadest sense of the word. Vaclav Havel (*1936) Czech playwright, essayist, poet, dissident, politician, first postcommunist president of the Czech Republic (1993-2003) and during the Velvet Revolution (1989-1992)
By grace one arrives at the transformational phase between no longer and not yet. This thin sacred space requires courage and hope in order not to despair.
- There are times [between no longer (death / lead) and not yet (rebirth / gold)] in life when we die to whatever we were. Janet Quinn, Ph.D., US American nurse, active medical researcher of Therapeutic Touch
