Courage, States of Consciousness, and Edgar Mitchell

The Apollo 14 astronaut and extraordinary researcher of states of consciousness, Edgar Mitchell, was the subject of two posts published on June 9, 2016 that still reflect core ideas for WINN. I hope you will scroll back down and click on “older posts” to find them. It’ll take a long moment to click seven times, but I think it’ll be worth it. (Perhaps you’ll also see another post you’d like to read on your way down.)
In these times we need more than ever to understand human potential and the meaningful life.

To quote Rainer Maria Rilke again about courage:

“This is at bottom the only courage that is demanded of us: to have courage for the most strange, the most singular and the most inexplicable that we may encounter. That mankind has in this sense been cowardly has done life endless harm: the experiences that are called ‘visions,’ the whole so-called ‘spirit world,’ death, all those things that are so closely akin to us, have by daily parrying been so crowded out of life that the senses with which we could have grasped them are atrophied.”

Recognizing and developing our higher states of consciousness can allow those senses to grow again. Then we can know more about what is real and go on to shift our perspectives on what’s really important in our lives and for our world.
