Are you looking to change the world?, April 11 2006
If you are looking to change the world to make it a better place, then go read another book first: "Controlling Others for Love and Profit" by James R. Quinn.
If you are looking to change yourself to become an even greater gift to the world, then I can recommend no greater books than the ones written by Dr. David R. Hawkins. And yes, I have read Chopra, Dyer, Myss, Ruiz, Tolle, Walsch, Williamson, et al. and found them wonderfully helpful, as well as "A Course In Miracles" (which Hawkins highly recommends).
The greatest gift we can give the world is to raise our own level of consciousness. In an average lifetime, a person will raise their level of consciousness about 5 points. Simply by being exposed to this material, a person's level of consciousness will raise on average about 35 points. This is equivalent to 7 lifetimes of personal growth.
My own subjective experience of this is that it is true. My family members and friends have shared with me feedback indicating that they see the difference in me of the positive shifts that have happened since I started working with this material.
"Power vs Force" is difficult to get through in places, as I and some of my family members and friends have found. "The Eye of the I" had a great positive effect on me and I have read it a number of times. I very rarely read a book more than once. "I" had a hugely positive effect on me and I have read it many times. "Truth vs Falsehood" is an interesting book, helping me put the world and "everything outside of me" into perspective. "Transcending the Levels of Consciousness" is an amazingly practical book that is helping me to understand and see where I am on my journey to enlightenment, and to help me avoid pitfalls along the way. While I wait for the next book, the DVDs, files available in the Yahoo groups, and discussion with my study group, are helping me to keep focused on changing my perspective of content as it expands closer to context.
If you too find it difficult to get through "Power vs Force", consider jumping to "The Eye of the I" and then "I", and come back to "Power vs Force" if you feel drawn to do so.
