   It is not outer space, up and away,
   That is our last frontier, our final goal
   As human beings, who only need to stay
   On Earth to rightly learn how to be whole.
   The super race that we aspire to be
   We’ll only ever find in inner space
   Where cosmic consciousness will prove the key
   To what we seek: Truth, Peace and Loving Grace.

   Our longing to escape the bounds of Earth
   And probe the cosmos to its farthest ends
   Will ultimately prove of little worth
   Compared to finding where our spirit tends,

        Which is to realize, for all you roam,
        The center of your heart is your true home.

“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring
will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” —T. S. Eliot
