A HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS WORKSHOP Karen Rivers, PhD

Karen Rivers, PhD

KAREN RIVERS

Author of Love and the Evolution of Consciousness:

The Transformation of the Human Soul, the Double, and the Spirit

There is a law of compensation in the Universe, meaning that all

evil-doing has its own retribution by Nature’s own act. Leave it

therefore to the gods to avenge you if you have suffered, and suffered

wrongly. Give justice when you receive injustice. Ally yourselves

with the gods, with your own inner god. Requite never hate with

hate, for thus you but add fuel to an unholy flame. Requite hatred

with compassion and justice. This is the ancient law. Thus also you

make no evil Karma for yourself; thus you ally yourself with Na-

ture’s own spiritual procedures and you become a child of the cosmic

life, which thereafter will beat in your own heart with its undying

pulses. — G. de Purucker, (2000)

Forgiveness has the potential to be of immeasurable significance for

human evolution. It is among the most pressing spiritual issues of

our time as well as a preeminent method of furthering spiritual

evolution, both for individual human beings and for the Earth.

Practicing the Twelve Virtues creates a path to educate the emotions, refine

the soul, and develop inner character. When we enter into the task

of developing virtue, we enter into an alchemical process of trans-

forming our soul life into capacities for helping others with grace,

subtlety and care. Through a practice of the Virtues, human beings

can establish a harmonious relationship with each other and with the

Soul and the Cosmos. The Virtues constitute a way of sacred service

in the world for they are the means through which we unite the soul

and spirit. Rudolf Steiner stated that: If you diligently practice these

virtues, new powers and abilities will result.
