THE FINAL FRONTIER
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
