Excerpt from "Science and the Inner Experience" with Edgar Mitchell

ImageScience&theInnerExperience In honor of Neil Armstrong's life, we are delighted to share with you this transcribed excerpt from fellow astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell’s talk on “Science and the Inner Experience” 

 

Move out now further into space.  See the shape of the earth as a sphere.  Let’s move on out until we see the earth about as we would see it -- the size of a ball, a baseball held at arms length.  Look at that magnificent little planet blue and white, peaceful.   The turmoil that goes on underneath that layer of atmosphere and those clouds is not evident to us here.  We recognize it as a haven of life, our home, our planet. As far as we know for sure, the only haven of life in our galaxy, but as we suspect, probably not the only one.  But a beautiful little planet in the immensity of space and set in the background, billions and billions of points of light. Far more so -- ten times more than we can possibly see from the surface of the earth. Representing stars, galaxies, galactic clusters, billions and billions of such points of light, and our tiny little planet about the size of a ball held at arms length.  A beautiful peaceful haven for life. And in the immensity of the universe all of a sudden you feel connected. 

 

We are all apart of the same thing.  There is a connection.  There is intelligence.  There is a feeling of oneness, an extension of self.  And it’s a joyous and wonderful experience.  As I experienced it at this point coming back from the moon and looking at the earth, suddenly I recognized that our scientific description of reality of this universe was far from complete. Our model was not yet filled out, and on the other hand our religious descriptions of ourselves, of creation, of the universe --  all of them were somewhat flawed and incomplete as well. In other words, our knowledge of who and what we are.  How we got here.  Where we came from and where we are going is very inadequate at this point in history, and yet there is a feeling of intelligence, of peace, of abundance, of process, that gives one comfort and joy in observing this magnificent universe of which we are a part.  Contemplate that for a moment. See this little planet from that perspective, and see if you experience it as I did.

LikeThisColemanBarks300
Through his rendering of Rumi’s poems and stories, Coleman Barks has established himself as perhaps the leading voice for Rumi’s work today. His warm and sensitive reading combines with the world-renowned musicianship of Hamza El Din (oud and tar) and Steve Coughlin (ney an hansuri) to create an enthralling listening experience. 

Jalaluddin Rumi (1207-1273), is now recognized in the West as one of the greatest poets of all time . His works are charged with an unequalled blend of literary genius and spiritual wisdom 

No matter how often we listed to Rumi, each time is always the first time.

This program includes twenty two of Rumi’s most beautiful poems. Coleman Barks bio and links

2009 Nautilus Silver Winner Pure Water - Poetry of Rumi with Coleman Barks and Eugene Friesen

PureWater-Image-Better Listen BetterListen is proud to be the recipient of a 2009 Nautilus Silver Award for our recording of Pure Water - Poetry of Rumi with Coleman Barks and Eugene Friesen

Following are transcribed selections of Rumi poetry included on our audio program our Pure Water.

Inside water, a water wheel turns.

The star circulates with the moon. 

We live in the night ocean wondering, 

What are these lights?  


*********************************

 

This moment, this love comes to rest in me, 

many beings in one being.

In one wheat grain a thousand sheath stacks. 

Inside the needles eye a turning night of stars.


*********************************

 

I am so small I can barely be seen.  

How can this great love be inside me?  

Look at your eyes, they are small, 

but they see enormous things.


*********************************

 

Keep walking though there is no place to get to.  

Don’t try to see through the distance, that’s not for human beings.  

Move within but don’t move the way fear makes you move.  Move within.  


*********************************

 

Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing, 

there is a field. I’ll meet you there. 

When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.

Ideas, language, even the phrase each other doesn’t make any sense.
