Overview

The book 'I: Reality and Subjectivity' concludes the presentation of a long-predicted major advance in critical human knowledge. It explains and describes the very substrate and essence of consciousness as it evolved from its primordial appearance as life on earth on up through evolution as the human ego, and hence, to the ego’s transcendence as the spiritual Reality of Enlightenment and the Presence of Divinity.

On the referenced Scale of the Levels of Consciousness, which calibrates the levels of Truth from 1 to 1,000, Power vs Force calibrates at 850, The Eye of the I at 980, and the final volume of the trilogy, I, calibrates at a conclusive 999.8.

The uncommon clarity and lucidity with which the highly evolved subject matter is presented facilitates the reader's understanding and comprehension.

Some people experience Dr. Hawkins as the presence of a "Bodhisattva," one who works to overcome imperfections on the level of earth and works with civilization as a whole, removing the dross that does not serve us and increases that which needs to be strengthened.

In his presentation, he describes advanced states of consciousness and the way to Enlightenment. He incorporates sharing of dialogues with both beginning as well as advanced spiritual students worldwide. The nature of consciousness is described in terms that recontextualize and simplify the spiritual process. The nonlinear reality of the enlightened sage is thereby made comprehensible to the reasoning mind.

This exposition of the state of enlightenment is both unique and explicit in that it does not hide specifics in spiritual generalities, which has been the style of "traditional" spiritual classics. By analyzing the basic nature of human thought and the structure of the ego itself, Dr. Hawkins makes available to everyone the key to penetrating the last barrier to the advancement of civilization and science; he details how anyone may resolve for himself the most crucial of all human dilemmas - how to instantly determine the truth or falsehood of any statement or supposed fact. He then explains and describes the process of moving toward one's ultimate potential.

Meet the Author

Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D. is a nationally renowned psychiatrist, physician, researcher, spiritual teacher and Lecturer. The uniqueness of his contribution to humanity comes from the advanced state of spiritual awareness known as "Enlightenment," "Self-Realization," and "Unio Mystica." Rarely, if ever, has this spiritual state occurred in the life of an accomplished scientist and physician. Therefore, Dr. Hawkins is uniquely qualified to present a spiritual path that is scientifically compelling to modern society.

The classical hallmarks of this state are pristine awareness of Ultimate Reality, compassion for all beings, tireless dedication to alleviate suffering, radiant joy, and humor. People from all walks of life, nationalities, and spiritual orientations honor Dr. Hawkins as a teacher of advanced awareness, exemplified in the title "Rae Ryeong Seon Kak Tosa" (Foremost Teacher of the Way to Enlightenment) bestowed upon him in Korea.

Founding Director of the Institute for Spiritual Research, Inc. (1983) and Founder of the Path of Devotional Nonduality (2003), Dr. Hawkins has lectured widely at such places as Westminster Abbey; Oxford Forum; Universities of Notre Dame, Michigan, Argentina, Fordham and Harvard; University of California (SF) Medical School; Institute of Noetic Sciences; and Agape Spiritual Center (Los Angeles). In addition, he has been an advisor to Catholic, Protestant, and Buddhist monasteries. He has conferred with foreign governments on international diplomacy and has been instrumental in resolving long-standing conflicts that were major threats to world peace.

He is featured in recent documentary films, magazines, and radio interviews (e.g., Oprah Radio) for his work in the areas of health, healing, recovery, spirituality in modern life, consciousness research, and meditation.

Dr. Hawkins entered the field of medicine to alleviate human pain and distress, and his work as a physician was pioneering. As Medical Director of the North Nassau Mental Health Center (1956-1980) and Director of Research at Brunswick Hospital (1968-1979) on Long Island, his clinic was the largest practice in the United States, including a suite of twenty-five offices, two thousand outpatients, and several research laboratories. In 1973, he co-authored the ground-breaking work, Orthomolecular Psychiatry with Nobel Laureate chemist Linus Pauling, initiating a new field within psychiatry.
