    I have just encountered this guy, and am very impressed. A truly enlightened guy, ... do we need near death to achieve this state? so many attain it in that way..

    check out his web site as a start :

    If Greybeard finds your thread he will certainly have a lot to say about Hawkins as it is one of his favorite authors .

    Here is a video with some great audio excerpts of Hawkins lecturing

    Thank you very much for starting this thread. I have enjoyed reading Dr. Hawkins writings.
    This week I stopped at a bookstore. I opened Dr. Hawkins book "I". There was no reason for me to look at it at the book store since I have the book at home, but I just had the urge to open it and begin reading. I opened the book to a random page and I came upon this bit, which was exactly what I needed to read at that moment...
    Q: This helps clarify the teachings of Ramana Maharshi who says there is no point in trying to save the world because the world one perceives does not even exist. He recommended surrendering the world to God and concentrating instead on self-inquiry.
    A: He was clear that the appearance of the world is the result of dualistic perception and the intrinsic mechanisms of the ego. All one can actually see within the world are differences and preferences. If one looks at a forest, one sees large and small trees, bent and twisted trees. There is no purpose in going into the forest to try to straighten out all the crooked trees. There is nothing 'wrong' with crooked trees or those that seem to be falling over.
