This enlightened teacher has made an impact on my way of being. His books are worth checking out, especially “Healing and Recovery”, where he shares he healed himself of over 21 diseases. Dr. Hawkins even corrected his vision to 20/20, and he is now in his 80’s with healthy vision. He writes of how the mind is reflected in our body and explains it very lucidly.

Dr. David Hawkins Quotes

“Surrender is a constant process of not resisting or clinging to the moment but instead, continuously turning it over to God. The attention is thus focused on the process of letting go and not on the content of the ‘what’ that is being surrendered.”

“There is absolutely nothing in ordinary human experience to compare with the joy of the presence of the Love of God. No sacrifice is too great nor effort too much in order to realize that Presence.”

“Love is misunderstood to be an emotion; actually, it is a state of awareness, a way of being in the world, a way of seeing oneself and others”.

“The true destiny of man is to realize the truth of the divinity of one’s source and creator which is ever present within that which has been created and is the creator of the Self.”
“At some point, the illusion breaks down and the opening for the start of the spiritual quest commences. The quest turns from without to within and the search for answers begins
“We change the world not by what we say or do, but as a consequence of what we have become.”

“The readiness to initiate the journey cannot be forced nor can people be faulted if it has not occurred in them as yet. The level of consciousness has to have advanced to the stage where such an intention would be meaningful and attractive.”

“Every thought, action, decision or feeling creates an eddy in the interlocking, interbalancing, ever-moving energy fields of life, leaving a permanent record for all of time. This realization can be intimidating when it first dawns on us, but it becomes a springboard for rapid evolution.”

“Simple kindness to one’s self and all that lives is the most powerful transformational force of all.”

“The simple decision to be kind, forgiving, and compassionate to all life in all of its expressions, including ones own self, is a scalpel that is capable of removing the major impediments to spiritual progress.”

“In this interconnected universe, every improvement we make in our private world improves the world at large for everyone. We all float on the collective level of consciousness of mankind, so that any increment we add comes back to us. We all add to our common buoyancy by our efforts to benefit life. It is a scientific fact that what is good for you is good for me.”

“Prayer: Holding in mind what you desire, but without adding desire to it.”

“Everything you see happening is the consequence of that which you are.”

“All judgment reveals itself to be self-judgment in the end, and when this is understood a larger comprehension of the nature of life takes its place.”
“Everybody is like a magnet. You attract to yourself reflections of that which you are. If you’re friendly, then everybody else seems to be friendly too.“

“The world of the ego is like a house of mirrors through which the ego wanders, lost and confused, as it chases the images in one mirror after another. Human life is characterized by endless trials and errors to escape the maze. At times, for many people, and possibly for most, the world of mirrors becomes a house of horrors that gets worse and worse. The only way out of the circuitous wanderings is through the pursuit of spiritual truth.”

“That which you resist stays.”

“Exploration is innate to mankind, and its highest levels lead to spiritual inquiry. This brings up the questions of who am I, what am I, where did I come from, what is the origin and destiny of the self, and who and where is God.”

“When we stop identifying with events ‘out there’ and giving them power over our lives, then we experience an inner serenity as a consequence of having transcended the world.”

“With spiritual work, the terms ‘is’ or ‘are’ become progressively replaced by the term ‘seems to’, whish is due to the increasing realization of the degree to which perception is the mask that hinders truth.”

“With humility one can see that the mind is limited and incapable of seeing all the circumstances surrounding any event. Out of this arises the willingness to let go of condemnation and judgment.”

“Make a gift of your life and lift all mankind by being kind, considerate, forgiving, and compassionate at all times, in all places, and under all conditions, with everyone as well as yourself. This is the greatest gift anyone can give.”

“A spiritual attitude leads one to be friendly, kind, and well meaning to all life. … not as a compulsive must or a religious rule, but out of a greater awareness of the value of all life.”

Like the sun, the inner Self is always shining, but because of negative clouds, we do not experience it. It is not necessary to program oneself with the truth; it is only necessary to remove that which is false. The removal of the clouds from the sky to illuminate the negative allows one to experience the energy fields of that which is positive. It is only the removal of the negative that is necessary-the willingness to let go of the habits of negative thinking. The removal of the obstacles to the experiencing of this will result in an increasing sense of aliveness and a joy of one’s own existence.”

“All judgment reveals itself to be self-judgment in the end, and when this is understood a larger comprehension of the nature of life takes its place.”

“Spiritual evolution occurs as the result of removing obstacles and not actually acquiring anything new. Devotion enables surrender of the mind’s vanities and cherished illusions so that it progressively becomes more free and more open to the light of Truth.”

“To let go of the known for the unknown requires great commitment, willingness, and devotion to surrendering one’s faith to God.”

“There is no inner “thinker” behind thoughts, no “doer” behind actions, no “seeker” of enlightenment. Seeking occurs on its own when the time is right, and it emerges as a focus of attention. All aspects and qualities of consciousness are self-actuating and energize each other under the general direction of the will.”

 

“Be passionate for God, not for belief systems. That is the only real decision that has to be made and can be applied to any and all situations. The question is always whether to be at the effect of the world or aligned with the Truth of God instead. The search for enlightenment is different from that of seeking worldly success”

“At first, spiritual purification seems difficult, but eventually, it becomes natural. To consistently choose love, peace, or forgiveness leads one out of the house of mirrors. The joy of God is so exquisite that any sacrifice is worth the effort and seeming pain.”

“All reactions to life are subjective. There is nothing happening that is awful, exciting, sad, good, or bad. It is pointless to hold a position that catastrophes shouldn’t “happen” or that the innocent didn’t deserve it, or isn’t it awful, or it must be somebody’s fault. With a broad view, one can remain unperturbed by either the content or the context of life. That requires giving up judgments, expectations, or sensitivities.”

“To become more conscious is the greatest gift anyone can give to the world; moreover, in a ripple effect, the gift comes back to its source.”

“The goal of society in general is to succeed in the world, whereas the goal of enlightenment is to transcend beyond it.”

“Out of all-inclusive, unconditional compassion comes the healing of all mankind.”

  1. DR Hawkins is awesome. I use his Map of consciousness as a template to do “Emotional Coaching” with my clients. The results are incredible. Great to have some of his quotes in one spot.

    • I have his books in my office and was thinking what a blessing it is to have this teacher in our time and planet. I recently created this blog, (still finding my way) so will be adding more quotes from Dr. Hawkins, it’s a high calibration focus. 🙂

      Thanks so much for adding your energy and comments. Wishing you continuing success with your clients!

  2. DO you recommend this book. shall i get one to read? 🙂

  3. Dr. Hawkins is awesome, but it all depends what a reader’s spiritual focus is. His books are at times a little cryptic as he writes as a former psychiatrist and scientist at times, but I personally enjoyed reading “Healing and Recovery”. He shares how he healed himself of over 21 diseases. It’s amazing! There are inspirational Youtubes of him, if you want to get a feel for his work.

  4. Wow…Marie, those are remarkable quotes…thank you…

  5. Some very good quotes that popped out to me–

    “Love is misunderstood to be an emotion; actually, it is a state of awareness, a way of being in the world, a way of seeing oneself and others”.

    “To become more conscious is the greatest gift anyone can give to the world; moreover, in a ripple effect, the gift comes back to its source.”

    “A spiritual attitude leads one to be friendly, kind, and well meaning to all life. … not as a compulsive must or a religious rule, but out of a greater awareness of the value of all life.”

    All very good and sound quotes.

    But this one cuts both ways —

    “With humility one can see that the mind is limited and incapable of seeing all the circumstances surrounding any event. Out of this arises the willingness to let go of condemnation and judgment.”

    It also means that praise and encouragement and support and validation all go out the window as well.

    Good food for thought.

    Kindest regards, and thank you for sharing these!

    Merry Christmas!

    • Dr. Hawkins who recently passed away from old age continues to inspire me. The quote that I like the most, is love not being an emotion but a state of being.
