“How do we remain faithful to our own spiritual imagination and not betray what we know in our own bodies? The world is holy. We are holy. All life is holy.” ― Terry Tempest Williams
“The world is holy” Terry Tempest Williams reminds us. This is the epiphany astronaut Edgar Mitchell experienced on his return to Earth while part of the Apollo 14 space mission.
With the news so bleak right now, perhaps pulling back and using our spiritual imagination to see a bigger picture and infinite possibilities is what we need.
The story of Mitchell’s experience is featured on the Institute of Noetic Sciences’ website. It notes when he saw planet Earth floating in the vastness of space that “he was engulfed by a profound sense of universal connectedness”.
“The presence of divinity became almost palpable, and I knew that life in the universe was not just an accident based on random processes… The knowledge came to me directly.” ―Edgar Mitchell
Studies about the power of the imagination abound, especially those that show we can imagine our way into learning a new skill. Why not stretch this into imagining a better outcome for the world than many believe is possible?
May you call on your spiritual imagination to bring you the support you need and to envision thousands of us around the globe calling forth peace and a brighter future.
