Global Mind Change. Perhaps Even More Timely
I had the good fortune several years ago to spend a week in the presence of astronaut, Edgar Mitchell, a national hero by any measure. He is an explorer of both the outer and inner worlds. I can’t think of a better presentation for gaining a useful contextual perspective of perhaps why life for our species is the way it is. Below is a summary of the short audio lecture available through “betterlisten.com. While this talk was made over a decade ago, it feels even more timely now.
Global Mind Change: Paradigm Shift 102 by Edgar Mitchell
Dr. Mitchell explores humanity, science, and fulfillment in this recording on what it means to be a human and our place in the universe. Part of a three-lecture series recorded in the 1990s, the messages Dr. Mitchell brings us are perhaps more relevant today than ever. Excerpt from recording: “I suggest to you that the way we need to look at it is because we are not really physical beings yearning for a spiritual experience. We are in reality eternal creative beings. Creating a physical experience and it takes quite a shift in mindset to get yourself around that one…. For those of you who haven’t heard me before, why is this important? What is it about now, that I would bring this up? What is it about the contemporary period that we live in that perhaps makes this a vital alternative viewpoint to think about and to look at? I will tell you that in the last year I have seldom spoken with a person who did not think that something very strange was going on, who did not think that the world was in a rather major crisis and it seemed to be deepening.”
