The Line between Good and Bad, Strong and Weak

Here’s an amazing book: “Power vs. Force” by David Hawkins. If you enjoy quantum physics and chaos theory, go out and buy the book today. Otherwise, here’s an overview. Through millions of trials, Hawkins and his colleagues established the dividing line between “good and evil.” Or better put, they found the difference between things that strengthen us and things that weaken us. They put a number to it: 200.

Anything above-200 gives us strength – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Anything below-200 weakens us in those same ways.

Above-200: Courage, Neutrality, Willingness, Acceptance, Reason, Love, Joy, Peace, and Enlightenment. Everything above-200 begins with trusting in things that are stronger than ourselves and our will. They involve a genuine sense of openness and compassion, and a willingness to bend and flow.

Below-200: Shame, guilt, apathy, grief, fear, desire, anger, and pride. These encapsulate such emotions as: desires to be richer, thinner, prettier, more successful; fear of losing a job, losing a loved one, losing our standing in our world, losing money; the fear of things going wrong, of not being perfect, of people being mad at us, of not being in control of things; raging fury, slow-boiling hostility, or general frustration; sarcasm, jealousy, competition, revenge, and a sense of always wanting or “needing” more.

(It makes you feels better just to read that first list, doesn’t it? See…it works!).

We literally make ourselves ill with below-200 things; we literally heal ourselves with above-200 things.

I’ve got news for you: almost without exception, television, movies, news, radio, and advertisements are below 200. That means that every day, when you turn on the news or read the paper or watch tv, you are willingly weakening yourself. There is an auto-immune response to this – it is a scientifically proven fact.

And it’s not just through those outlets. It’s in every thought you have, every interaction, every conversation. Whenever you are thinking/talking/listening to something below-200, you are injuring yourself.

On the upside, whenever you think/talk/listen to something above-200 you are strengthening yourself. This is why it is so crucial to make conscious choices about our thoughts, our conversations, our interactions, our “entertainment” outlets.

We’ve kind of known this, right? We want to be good people, or god-fearing people, or whatever you want to call it. But now there’s science behind it. There’s an observable, measurable cause-and-effect. It’s not just about going to church on Sundays, or praying once a day, or “doing the right thing” when you wan to feel moralistic. This stuff is happening every single moment of our lives.
