This unique event allowed Dr. Hawkins to answer some deep and interesting questions in an intimate bookstore setting. Questions came from novices who are unfamiliar with his work as well as from students who have studied his teachings for several years. The topics include challenges to one's comfort zone; A Course in Miracles; changing employment; sensitivity to negativity; parental vs. personal career choice; consciousness level 700; clinical depression; marriage; emotional "crashes"; detachment/duty; Unity Church teachings; the death of the ego; despair; messages from pain; sexual expressions; irritability; kinesiology methods; view of Jesus; how to live life; war; fear of death; 91st Psalm; worry; and the collective karma of students who move to Sedona.
The Q&A is interesting in what it brings up
Any additional comments?
As this was a book signing it brought different questions than at a lecture. Upon first listen I must confess I get little immediate value from the Q&A as a whole but every now an again one will be so useful. From listening to the bulk of his lectures I wish questioners would heed his request--make the question succinct! They rarely do and go on and on about things which are tiresome to listen to. I wish them the very best as well. However because this one was so filled with teary, weepy stories I think it emphasizes the powerful karma yoga or maybe kindness in a spiritual being being present to others without expectation. Hawkins always models some behavior I admire. :)
My favorite Q&A is when Hawkins kindly but firmly explains narcissism to a man and them emphatically states that the discussion is over when the questioner starts trying to refute it. Beautiful. Hawkins clearly and kindly stated that no one else would tell this questioner this truth. Thanks goodness for those like Hawkins who affirm speaking the truth even when and perhaps most especially when it is not popular.
And Susan (in a very hard to hear manner) shares how they met!
Thank you David Hawkins!
