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.

chivalry today

Chivalry becomes very personal as we trace the green or rejuvenating impulse throughout the epoch: Where in our own lives do we see a code of conduct that embraces honor, intactness, and integrity as part of a refining journey of personal growth? Can we see chivalry in the strength of character needed to say “no”; for example, by choosing not to join or give our credence to an action or idea we believe disrupts a personal code of ethics or behavior.

Turning our back has the power to negate, to say no, to deny credence or agreement, when the focus and the endeavor of our life are in the pursuit of ongoing rejuvenation in the emerging new epoch. That's chivalrous.

In this conversation, Aviv Shahar and Jeff Vander Clute trace the

appearance and major themes of this culminating epoch of planetary and human history, and the possibilities for humanity in evolution’s emerging and unfolding new wave.

In these times, it seems like all the stakes are higher and maybe others can relate to this, but each decision feels much more important now and I want to say it's fun actually to be engaged in a creative discernment process with more awareness and more faculties, so I take from our conversations an elevation and an empowerment of my ability to reason clearly, but also to integrate and see from different perspectives the wholeness of life and allow it the time it takes.
