The Greatest Opportunity for Growth

The difficulties of this world appear to be the consequence of all different levels of evolutionary development being thrown together simultaneously, which results in social turbulence.  Simultaneously, however, the availability of such a wide spectrum allows for the greatest opportunity for growth and the undoing of ‘bad karma’ and, by choice, accumulating the merit of ‘good karma’ .  Thus, this domain is one of maximum spiritual opportunity with a great multitude of options and choices that provide maximum potential for the evolution of consciousness about which one can be grateful instead of resentful. As the Buddha taught, “Rare is it to be born a human being, rarer still to have heard of Enlightenment, and even rarer still to pursue it.”

  1. The work of your husband has transformed my thinking & way of showing up as a daughter, mother, friend and minister.
    This Canadian is profoundly grateful as I prepare for our Thanksgiving weekend!

  2. My gratitude to you Susan and Dr. Hawkins a million times over! I have literally been handed my existence, which before I never truly understood. Thank you for this reminder that EVERY choice made in every moment counts and helps shift the awareness of mankind forever.
