Mid-Month Meditation for October: A Pale Blue Dot

This is our first monthly meditation.  We encourage our readers to take these posts as an opportunity to take a short break from everything else.  Rather than treating these posts the way you would any other post, set aside 10 minutes someplace quiet and semi-private to have an experience.  Take a minute to relax first. The video 5 1/2 minutes.  After watching the video, take a few minutes to let the experience sink in.  If it feels right, leave a comment.  Even if you have seen the video before, take this opportunity to watch it again.

If you’re interested, the text can be found here.  Remember, Carl Sagan Day is November 9.

  1. Eggs

    The infinite lays eggs within wombs of nebulae.
    A blue fetus hatched and grew – fertilized by stardust and energies.
    Now grown into a teenager, its organs and structures mature,
    the brain still growing, expanding the conscientious of its existence,
    collecting – organizing – utilizing – information and materials
    collected over the eons.

    The gene of exploration mapping its body and the greater universe.
    An irresistible force molding the body, constructing vehicles and tools
    projecting the sense of sight to the furthest reaches – the sense of touch
    to nearby siblings and neighbors – hearing the voices of creation –
    for only the last few seconds.

    Realizing its solar system is just a part of a city named for its milky streets.
    Searching for sentient worlds – the first of many voyagers to come
    has been launched – leaving the pale blue dot and home on its way to
    Alpha Centuri and beyond.
