Astronaut Enlightenment

By Leo Gura - August 31, 2018

In the video below, US Apollo Astronaut and 6th man to walk on the moon, Edgar Mitchell, describes his samadhi experience in outer space.

“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 later founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences, devoted to the study of consciousness. As the website says, “The essential hypothesis underlying the noetic sciences is simply that consciousness matters.”

The point of this post is to help you realize that when the scientific mind penetrates reality deeply enough, the field of science morphs into the field of spirituality. A traditional scientist is just someone whose understanding of the metaphysical structure of reality is so thin that he hasn’t realized yet that he IS reality! Oh sure, he knows it intellectually, but not deeply enough, not personally enough that it’s flowered into a full-blown spiritual experience.

Flying into outer space helps to put you in touch with your own universal nature. Which is one of the key reasons why human beings are so fascinated with space exploration and space travel: We want to be Cosmic! But the truth is, we already are Cosmic! We’ve always been Cosmic! You don’t need to fly into outer space to realize this because in fact there is no difference between outer space and inner space. The vacuum of outer space is already here, right now, inside your head! You can fly to the edge of the galaxy and all you will ever find is consciousness. But for a mind thoroughly locked in the materialist paradigm it might take something like flying to the moon to realize its folly. A materialist mind needs an epic material revelation of spirit/oneness/consciousness to break through the lock. Something akin to an angel descending down from the clouds with choir music playing.

A traditional scientist is a dabbler in reality. Sure, he knows some formulas and he’s read a lot of books, but it has not dawned on him yet that the nature of reality is pure, radical subjectivity. So he stands too far aloof from his subject matter. He actually believes that the thing he’s studying is separate from himself. He likes to pretend that he is being “objective”. How myopic!

P.S. For you moon-landing conspiracy theorists, this is the most compelling evidence that the moon-landing actually happened. But sadly, if you’re a moon-landing conspiracy theorist, understanding spirituality will be way over your head.
