Zitate von Hawkins
- Er [der Körper] bewegt sich spontan, führt alle körperlichen Funktionen korrekt aus, geht und atmet ohne Anstrengung. Er wird aus sich selbst angetrieben, und seine Handlungen werden bestimmt und veranlasst durch die An-Wesenheit. Der Körper ist nur ein "Es", jedem anderen "Ding" im Raum gleich. Das All-sehende Auge, S. 23, 2001
- Die Strahlkraft GOTTES ist das Licht des Gewahrseins, welches die Göttlichkeit in allem Existierenden offenbart.
In der Stille der unendlichen An-Wesenheit schweigt der Geist, da es nichts gibt, was gesagt werden könnte.
Das All-sehende Auge, S. 180-181, 2001
Quotes by D. Hawkins
- The person I had been no longer existed. There was no personal self or ego, only an Infinite Presence of such unlimited power that it was all that was. This Presence had replaced what had been ’me,’ and my body and its actions were controlled solely by the Infinite Will of the Presence. The world was illuminated by the clarity of an Infinite Oneness which expressed itself as all things revealed in their infinite beauty and perfection.
Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, S. 294, Veritas Publishing, 1995, S. 12, Hay House, February 2002
- The other thing that is interesting, now that I'm looking back over many years, it is
- the exquisite gentleness,
- this peculiar combination of qualities,
- this Infinite Presence which is all things, is everywhere, is both the space in the room and the objects in the room. It is both the figure and the ground, simultaneously. It is also exquisitely gentle. Its touch just melts away any 'you' with its exquisite presence. Whatever there was of the individual self is melted by it, dissolved by it.
There is no violence
, it is like one just dissolves. It is like one is sugar and you put it in water – one just dissolves and becomes one with All That Is

People's reactions to the Presence embodied in D. Hawkins
- The human experience of the Presence of God is the same in all ages, all cultures and all localities. Source unknown
- To choose to experience the presence of God occurs outside of time. It is therefore nowhere in the future; it is available only in the present. No other condition is necessary or even possible because the present moment is permanent; it never changes; it never disappears into yesterday or tomorrow. In fact, it is inescapable. Everyone is actually safe in the exact moment of now. Source unknown
- When time stops, all problems disappear, for they are merely artifacts of a point of perception. As the Presence prevails, there is no further identification with the body or mind. When the mind grows silent, the thought I am also disappears, and Pure Awareness shines forth to illuminate what one is, was, and always will be, beyond all worlds
and all universes – infinite and beyond time.
Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior, S. 21, Hay House, February 2002
- By ignoring the lesser selves, the higher selves address each other directly, and the persons' ordinary selves appear to be unaware of this ongoing higher level of conversation. At the same time, people are sensing intuitively that something different from the ordinary is happening. The conscious presence of the Self creates an energy field which people find extremely pleasu-
rable. It is this energy field which performs the miraculous and brings occurrences into harmony, along with a sense of peace to all who experience it. Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 7, 2001
- The experience of the presence of God is available and within at all times, but awaits choice. That choice is made only by surrendering everything other than peace and love to God.
The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, chapter 4, S. 48, Veritas Publishing, revised edition 2002
- What the people in the world actually want is the recognition of who they really are on the highest level, to see that the same Self radiates forth within everyone, heals their feeling of separation, and brings about a feeling of peace. To bring peace and joy to others is the gift of the benevolence of the Presence.
Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 91, 2001
Soft, gentle, loving, melting ⇔ rock-like, immutable, powerful, infinitely cohesive
- The Presence is incredibly soft, gentle, loving, melting, and paradoxically, simultaneously rock-like, immutable, all powerful, and an infinite cohesion that holds together 'all reality' as a universe that is perpetual Creation.
The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, chapter 10 "The Nature of God – God is Beyond Form", S. 157, Veritas Publishing, revised edition 2002
- The Presence is beyond all thought, mentation, or even observation. The awareness is Self-awareness that stems from the knowingness of actually being All That Is; therefore, there is nothing to know 'about'. There is no knower or known; they are one and the same. In the state of Oneness, the objective and subjective disappear into each other.
The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, chapter 10 "The Nature of God", S. 211, 2001; S. 157, Veritas Publishing, revised edition 2002
- That which is Infinite Presence is always present, and its realization occurs when the obstacles to that realization are removed. It is therefore not necessary to study the truth but only to let go of that which is fallacious.

- The Presence dissolves all separateness. It feels as though one has stepped out of time. All sequence stops as if
all time and creation were totally present and equally in the Now. All that ever was or could be is already totally pre-
sent and complete. All that is possible to know is already known. The potentiality already is. All thought stops and therefore all categories of thought, such as time, space, distance, and duration, cease and are not predictable.
Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 193, revised edition 2002
- God is everywhere present, including the here and now. God is not elsewhere, such as only in a distant or in the future so as to be available only when one gets to heaven. The presence of God is thus available to everyone all the time. To realize this is just a matter of awareness. It is said that without the help of a guru, savior, or avatar, this awareness is unlikely to occur in the lifetime of most people, which may be true. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing Is Hidden,
chapter 10 "The Nature of God", S. 201, 2001
- Because of the quality of Omnipresence, the quality of God includes All That Is, including man's thinking, but of itself does not partake of it. Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, chapter 10 "The Nature of God – God is Beyond Form", S. 206, Veritas Publishing, revised edition 2002
- To the Infinite, the comings and goings of universes have no meaning. That which is the Source of life and the universe is not subject to it. The glory of God has no requirements. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 4, 2003
- The presence reveals that the Infinite Splendor (Holy Spirit) is actually one's own Self. Innate is the knowingness that one's reality is beyond all lifetimes, beyond all universes, total and complete. One knows the Allness because one is the Totality. There is nothing left to know nor anyone to know about it. The Presence obliterates all but Reality. One is 'home at last'.
I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 278, 2003
- To know is to be, in contrast to knowing about, which is merely the acquisition of information. Because mankind is an actualization of potential by its source, that source is ever present and directly knowable as the subjective essence of the Self. The experience of the Presence as Self is transformative and is also identical throughout history, as reported by the sages of widely divergent cultures. The gift of Divinity is the potentiality within man's own consciousness to return via that consciousness to the source of his existence. With the realization of the Self (the infinite context), the field and the content merge into the reality of the Oneness of the Source itself. Truth vs. Falsehood. How to Tell the Difference, S. 59, 2005
- As the state of Enlightenment unfolds upon the dissolution of the ego, the timelessness of the Presence as the Allness of Existence is a stunning revelation that initially precipitates awe in the last remnants of the dissolving ego. The Infinite field of the Source of All Existence is a radiant effulgence that shines forth, and its consequence as Creation are forever unified. Creator and Creation are one. Truth vs. Falsehood. How to Tell the Difference, S. 60, 2005
- Question: Why is truth itself, especially spiritual truth, so subject to distortion and misinterpretation?
Answer: The ego's survival relies on the defeat of truth because it is dependent on allegiance to falsity and illusion. For one thing, spiritual truth challenges the ego's presumption that it is sovereign. This is seen socially in the rising po-
pularity of secularism, which seeks to eliminate all references to Divinity or spiritual truth, or even the basics of morality or ethics. The current appeal of relativism (cal. 180-190) is that it subserves the ego's wish to reign supreme by virtue
of the statement that there is no absolute truth at all. This currently supported philosophy is actually based on nihilism
(cal. 50) and is the rationale for the social promotion of nonintegrity by political distortion. Truth therefore has oppo-
nents from both within and outside religion.
Discovery of the Presence of God. Devotional Nonduality, S. 116, 2007
- In the Presence of God, all suffering ceases. One has returned to one's Source, which is not different from one's own Self. It is as though one had forgotten, or is now awakened from, a dream. All fears are revealed to be groundless; all worries are foolish imaginings. There is no future to fear, nor past to regret. There is no errant ego/self to admonish or correct. There is nothing that needs changing or improving. There is nothing about which to feel ashamed or guilty. There is no "other" from which one can be separated. No loss is possible. Nothing needs to be done, no effort is required, and one is free from the endless tug of desire and want. Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self. Contemplations
from the Teachings of David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., edited by Scott Jeffrey, S. 161, Hay House, August 2011
- It is helpful to remember that neither Truth nor enlightenment is something to be found, sought, acquired, gained, or possessed. That which is the Infinite Presence is always present, and its realization occurs of itself when the ob-
stacles to that realization are removed. It is therefore not necessary to study the truth, but only to let go of that
which is fallacious.' Moving away the clouds does not cause the sun to shine but merely reveals that which was
hidden all along.
Spiritual work, therefore, is primarily a letting go of that which is presumably known for that which is unknown – with
the encouragement that the effort is more than well rewarded from others who have realized the Infinite Presence.
Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self. Contemplations from the Teachings of David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., edited by Scott Jeffrey, S. 203, Hay House, August 2011
- Innate to the Presence is an infinite, timeless Knowingness that illuminates all possibility, beyond all oppo-
sites or causality. Revelation presents itself as self-explanatory and obvious, the essence of all truth. The totality
and completeness of the Knowingness prevails beyond time and is therefore always present. One reflection of this
is the capacity to comprehend the incomprehensible by its self-revelation of its essence. Therefore, all stands re-
vealed. The unmanifest and the manifest are one and the same. Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self. Contemplations from the Teachings of David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., edited by Scott Jeffrey, S. 129-130, last quote, Hay House, August 2011
- 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. And by surrendering oneself to whatever is cycling up is how one disappears it eventually.
You disappear it by choosing to be with it and letting go wanting to change it as it arises. To do that particular technique means to do it continuously, no matter what, non-stop. […] So then, one surrenders everything that stands in the way
of the Presence. The Presence is so obvious, so startling and so overwhelming that there is no question about it. It is profound. It is total. It is all encompassing, totally overwhelming, totally transforming and completely unmistakable.

- We do again hold in mind those in need of thy Love. The feeling of the Presence you see, because you can go through anything, anything, when you feel the Presence within you. Any kind of agony. Any kind of forgiveness. So we pray that the people who need it feel the strength of God's Love […]. Everybody thinks of God's Love as sort of an ooh-ooh-ooh, flowers and we'll sing pretty songs. No, Love is powerful.

Personal avowals – Conversion experience
- My depression deepened unbearably and finally it seemed to me as though I were at the very bottom of the pit. I still gagged badly at the notion of a Power greater than myself, but finally, just for the moment, the last vestige of my proud obstinacy was crushed. All at once I found myself crying out, "If there is a God, let Him show Himself! I am ready to do anything, anything!"
Suddenly, the room lit up with a great white light. I was caught up into an ecstasy which there are no words to describe. It seemed to me, in the mind's eye, that I was on a mountain and that a wind not of air but of spirit was blowing. And then it burst upon me that I was a free man. Slowly the ecstasy subsided. I lay on the bed, but now for a time I was in another world, a new world of consciousness. All about me and through me there was a wonderful feeling of Presence, and I thought to myself, 'So this is the God of the preachers!' A great peace stole over me and I thought, 'No matter how wrong things seem to be, they are still all right. Things are all right with God and His world.'

- Only when we are able to "let go" of everything within all desire to see, to know, to taste and to experience the presence of God, do we truly become able to experience the presence with the overwhelming conviction and reality that revolutionize our entire inner life. Thomas Merton [LoC 515/520] (1915-1968) Anglo-American Catholic Trappist monk, mystic student of compa-
rative religion, social activist, poet, writer, The Pocket Thomas Merton, New Seeds, 8. November 2005
- God is not external to anyone, but is present with all things, though they are ignorant that he is so.
Plotinus [LoC 730; work 503] (205-270 AD) Greek philosopher, cited in: Thomas Taylor, select works of Plotinus and extracts from the treatise of Synesius on providence Synesius Cyrenensis, S. 492, 1817
- 6. PRESENCE – It is intended by the word Presence to indicate the sense and perception of the Divine as a Being, felt as present in one's existence and consciousness or in relation with it, without the necessity of any further qualification or description. Thus, of the "ineffable Presence" it can only be said that it is there and nothing more can or need be said about it, although at the same time one knows that all is there, personality and impersonality, Power and Light and Ananda and everything else, and that all these flow from that indescribable Presence. The word may be used sometimes in a less absolute sense, but that is always the fundamental signifi-
cance – the essential perception of the essential Presence supporting everything else. Sri Aurobindo [Aurobindo Ghose] [LoC 605] (1872-1950) Indian British Hindu freedom fighter, philosopher, yogi, guru, mystic, poet, Letters on Yoga, volume 1, part 1, 1970
- People will still try to think it out, they will still try to feel it out, but really the basic issue becomes: can you be present? To be present or not to be present that's really the question.
