The Human as an Essence Carrier

A central path inside the Portals inquiry of what is appearing on the leading edge of human awareness is a growing appreciation for the incredible capabilities that are part of our basic design and universal DNA as human beings.

In this conversation we explore the human capacity to unlock and express the knowledge and living intelligence inside almost any subject matter or domain by connecting with its core energetic blueprint – its essence. We’re considering what it means for each one of us to become an essence carrier.

The vast expansion of human knowledge and experience over the past several centuries has produced a curious feature of some professions pursuing and mastering a narrowing field of

study or exploration. So medical doctors become specialists; musicians devote their careers to one composer or period of music.

But instead of mastering a specific skill or single subject, what about the human ability to connect with and express the living essence of many domains or qualities or fields of exploration? Not as a concept or academic notion or intellectual idea, but as an experienced reality?

What is an essence carrier? Why is this innate human capacity so significant in a time of profound change? We’ve brought together a global group of voices to share their insights and experiences with the living world of essences and essence carriers.

We have friends who create wonderful music and art and they connect to the essence of music, or art, or dance or writing. That essence lives with them, and then they can transfer it to another person. I've always tried to connect into warmth and care, so that I can live with warmth and care, and care and warmth can find a home in me.
