Power vs. Force author David Hawkins and Agape International founder Michael Bernard Beckwith describe important shifts in perception that represent the foundation for making shifts in the world. They explore the importance of simply being more aware and more loving and the ways that people can incorporate such shifts into their daily lives. Forgiveness, compassion and reverence toward ourselves, God, and fellow humans can, they assure us, heal our sense of separation and increase our experience of well-being.
Bernard explores physics, spirituality, and philosophy, and proposes a worldview that offers a way out of the hate and fear-driven violence engulfing the planet. Bernard led a multiyear NASA-funded study at Lockheed Martin on the topic of zero-point energy, which challenges Newton’s theory of mass with the possibility that the zero-point field exerts a force that opposes acceleration and makes matter appear solid. He is the President of the Digital Universe Foundation and Chief Science Officer of ManyOne Networks, Inc.
Former IONS President James O’Dea and native elder Sequoyah Trueblood discuss "the great shift" in the context of our universal oneness. They explore the separation created by judgment and the intellect and the need to see the sacredness in all things. Sequoyah shares some of his life experiences that proved to be paths to forgiveness and understanding.
