Sooner than we think, millions of space tourists will see the Earth from Space and have shifts in awareness that will vastly improve our basic humanity. Some astronauts mention beholding the connectedness of all matter though space travel which releases feelings of unity and compassion for others. These transformational awakenings will inspire us to love one another enough to lift the bottom billion out of poverty as a sensitivity toward Mother Earth builds, allowing us to halt, then reverse climate change. Only by expanding our consciousness can we become better at being human.
The future societies on Earth and Mars are being created by new areas of study at the confluence of the arts, sciences, technology and the humanities. By boldly imagining and bravely reaching for these new pathways of understanding, humanity will realize its full potential as a race. Opening the High Frontier to preserve, protect and expand consciousness is a vital human act that will forever change us as we build new worlds of unity that are worthy of a race that is reaching its evolutionary zenith.
NASA Astronaut Nicole Stott, credited with making the first watercolor in space, wrote the foreword and Kate Mulgrew, (Captain Janeway, Star Trek: Voyager) and Sheikha Fariha al Jerrahi (Philippa De Menil) the founder of Dia Art Foundation endorsed it among others.
Monks reaching for shifts in awareness sometimes imagine themselves on distant planets to unlock solutions to problems on Earth. By standing on the glittering sands of Mars, we can feel the preciousness of each human life and the Earth that sustains us. This experience of seeing our home planet from afar as millions of space tourists will soon do, has the power to transform us away from behaviors that our beneath our dignity as a race. Right now, we can imagine a future where we reach together for absolute freedom, unconditional love and wellness on our grand quest for world peace.
