A core motivation in the Portals mission is to develop and bring to this unique platform a series of practices that can assist any life on the journey of growth, knowledge and transformation in these perilous times.
In this special conversation, Portals friends gather to demonstrate the uniquely human practice of ‘essencing.’ We all have the natural capacity to focus our awareness and inner creative power to generate a spark of energy that carries intelligence and intention. For example, generating the essence of patience, or courage, or love; or with our Portals friends, the essence of care.
The practice of generating an essence with intention and value is asserting an innate human capacity to bring to life the qualities and virtues that should naturally flow between humans and uplift all aspects of our time on this planet. And, unfortunately, are painfully absent in a polarized world.
In the spirit of lighting a candle instead of cursing the darkness, and to demonstrate a practice anyone can activate at any time, our Portals friends bring to life the power, depth, and beauty of the simple quality of care. They begin with a centering practice of self-care.
What is connected with care?
- Our unique individual awareness gives us the self-authoring power to bring life to whatever we find important
- Care is being able to feel and know what something or someone needs; not what we think they need
- “You need not climb mountains; you need not search far and wide. For I, Care, am inside, ready to abide”
- If we care about humanity, all other essences will join that care
- You first must take care of yourself to take care of others around you
- Care is generated and brought to the world in visible and unnoticed acts of individuals and groups simply responding at the point of need
This conversation is part of the continuing Portals discovery into what is emerging on the frontiers of human experience in this time of profound change. Information about upcoming special events can be found on the Events page. Also visit and subscribe to our YouTube channel.
The central element is that the quality, the virtue, the essence we choose to generate and we endeavor to bring to life, we really become that essence, become the voice of that essence, such that it speaks with power through us.
