clickie clickie for bigger size. The levels of consciousness were 'invented' by David R. Hawkins in his great book, Power vs Force! From low to high, the levels of consciousness are: shame, guilt, apathy, grief, fear, desire, anger, pride, courage, neutrality, willingness, acceptance, reason, love, joy, peace, enlightenment. A guy who eats junk food, watches porn, drinks alot of beers with his friends and then comes home and beats his wife will be under level 200. Einstein and Freud were at 499 - Reason Gandhi & Mother Theresa at 500 - Love Eckhart Tolle & Jung - 540 - Joy Jesus, Buddha, Krishna (top 3 Christic figures & World Saviors) were at 1000! Unfortunately, 85% of the terrans spend their lives in the lower levels of consciousness, being mindful only 5% of the time, the rest of the day living in the empire of the subconscious mind (like zombies, apparently). Anyway, going back to the levels, anything above level 200 strengthens you, anything under 200 weakens you. For example, the level of 'desire' keeps most of us stuck at the lower levels (alcohol, nicotine, watching football & porn etc.) but the biggest enemy is the level of 'pride'. The levels above 200 are getting better and better. I know this because a year ago I had a very pleasant moment. After listening at the radio to John Lennon - Imagine my soul had a nice intention of universal peace and BANG, 2 hours of bliss, inner peace, extreme euphoria and complete mindfulness. Ah, nothing that happened in my life came even close to those 2 hours of freedom. I firmly believe that if we become 100% vegan, do jogging daily, make autosuggestions (positive affirmations), send positive suggestions to other people and generally doing good deeds life will become better and better! Won't do further ramblings on this - I'll just post Steve Pavlina's interpretation: http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2005/04/levels-of-consciousness/ And for those who want to dwelve deeper, there's always the book of the original author on scribd.
