The mystery of who we are as living human beings in the vast cosmos has led philosophers, poets, artists and countless other devoted minds to create metaphors to describe the meaning of our existence.
Earth Portals recognizes this wonder of life and provides many portals of exploration and discovery within and without the web site.
Whether it be religious thinkers such as the Dalai Lama, galactically possessed leaders such as the late Marshall Herff Applewhite, or the philosophy of "Cosmic Humanism" by the late Dr. Oliver L. Reiser, Earth Portals will offer many insights into how we can craft our thoughts when we wonder who we are, and what we can do in this vast sea of starlight.
We all share the heavens together, and we all seek an understanding of our time on this beautiful planet called Earth. Earth Portals offers many outlets of expression of this quest for the meaning of life. So now return to Earth Portals and begin the fantastic journey once again.
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The soul that rises with us, our life's Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home:
Heaven lies about us in our infancy!
Shades of the prison-house begin to close
Upon the growing Boy,
But he beholds the light, and whence it flows,
He sees it in his joy:
The Youth, who daily further from the east
Must travel, still is Nature's Priest,
And by the vision splendid
Is on his way attended;
At length the Man perceives it die away.
And fade into the light of common day.
