Description

"We could all benefit positively if we direct our thoughts to all of humankind and consider that birth and death are only portals. We must recognise that the greater part of humankind exists beyond these portals and that we are one with them." -- Karl König

Karl König, following Rudolf Steiner's teachings, believed that human beings are eternal and that our time in our earthly bodies is just one part of our journey. Our souls exist before birth and continue on beyond death until they are reborn.

In these important lectures and essays, König argues that the greatest part of our community exists beyond this earthly life. He calls on us not to neglect our connection with them and encourages us to solicit their guidance so that we might rediscover the values that our society has lost.

In this remarkable book, König suggests that by changing our everyday thinking, we can create a bridge across the threshold of death, allowing essential communication between humans in different states of being and uniting humankind to the benefit of all.

Reviews

'Today, nearly one hundred years later, this sea of materialism has rushed in like a tsunami and it is pertinent that this volume is published now to make available what—like a prophetic spirit—Karl König brought to the world and which has the power to be helpful and even life-preserving in these darkened times... It is well researched with plentiful notes, a comprehensive bibliography and index.'
