The first thing I have to say about this book is that you have to be ready for it.
I had it for a few years before I could actually read it all the way through. Sound funny? Yea, even I realize it kinda does.. Well, I attempted it a few times but it just wasn’t my time to “get” it; it will let you know when you should read it! It is excellently written, and intensely intriguing. I heard a friend of mine speak of it in conversation one day while visiting in Sanibel (his father is a Kinesiologist -this really piqued my interest) so I made a mental note of it -soon after which I purchased it. Then it sat upon my shelf for quite some time.
As the title implies, it is the idea of Power vs Force – and the actual difference between the two; supported by his knowledge as a psychiatrist, Dr. Hawkins (MD!) uses theoretical concepts from particle physics, nonlinear dynamics, and chaos theory to support his study of human behavior. Like I said, it’s something you have to be ready for : )
It is a very powerful read, it will take some time to digest, and it can change your life.
I will be re-reading it soon after I finish Intimations of Infinity (but that’s a post for later time!). I cannot begin to explain more about it, but I do encourage for you to check into it and find out more, and to simply see if it would be something of interest to you (click the image!). As I come back around to it, I will make another post with more comments, etc.
(As you will come to find, I highly admire Mother Teresa… needless to say an amazing and inspirational human being.. she commented about this work:
“A beautiful gift of writing… (You) spread joy, love, and compassion through what you write. The fruit of these three is peace, as you know…”
Templeton/Nobel Peace Prize recipient, anointed Blessed Teresa. –Just sayin.)
**On a side note… and as this cover may beg: are we “defined” by our opposite?.. Do opposites really attract?.. food for further thought.
