At Portals we seek to offer great content to inquiring minds, and we also want to nourish and grow a thriving community by creating an ecology of practice for engagement and exchange. Your membership supports that potential.

Throughout history, the great questions have been asked, and great research has been undertaken, always expanding the territory of the known by shining a light into the unknown. Where is that cutting edge today? And can a community of people from all over the world, each carrying their own unique journey of discovery, come together to inquire at the edge of purposeful evolution, through dialogue and interaction? We think it is possible, and we hope that you will choose to be a part of this exploration.

ineffable love

I use this in the sense of when we truly experience, in the most embodied sense, something that's bigger, that's greater, that is more sacredly precious and important than the living instance that I am, right here, right now. And then, when I sense into that, there is a whole cascade of other expressions.

It's almost as though you come to one, and then they cascade back all the way through 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, maybe all the way to seven. I don't know, just as one example, because when I sense into that universal, ineffable, something else, I love the fact that this is a universe that supports learning and development.

Because when I contemplate that deeply, that we appeared into a conscious ecology, an ecology that is evolving, an ecology that is evolving through learning as it increases its awareness and its

consciousness. And that we are actually part of that phenomena, we get to participate in this emergence of forever increasing awareness and consciousness - because it lifts learning, and refining, and evolving from a pedestrian level to something that is purely the essence of these ideas that ultimately spiritualizes the universe - spiritualizes the universe with consciousness.


We are in the middle of research. Nothing here is is etched in stone, it's all a moving diagram of discovery and research, and part of the effort to cleanse the potential of love and re-source it - as in re-engage with its source - and doing so by escaping the lazy, or the too-easy, aggregation of all dimensions, and all meanings to one commoditized expression.
