I'm currently listening to the audiobook of Cosmos by Carl Sagan (read by LeVar Burton, which is magical, btw). There is so much history involved with his telling of the evolution of discovery. He just keeps talking about how this idea of divine perfection suppressed so much discovery...while his disdain for mysticism & religion is quite apparent, my own path does not exclude magick from science or vice versa. While Mr. Sagan condemns that kind of spirituality for slowing scientific progress, I really think that's an amazing metaphor for self discovery. This is something that's been on my mind so much lately. A striving of perfection that everyone seems to participate in. I don't believe "perfection" exists, divine or otherwise. Striving for it, rather than awareness of truth is harmful. Quite often, I think about how comforting imperfection typically is. How our whole universe is varying degrees of cycles of change. How our own lives are that. How everything is a metaphor for everything else...some may argue that THAT is perfection...but there are always exceptions. To everything. Imperfection in truth is what is divine to me. And everyone is imperfect...and that calls to another thing Mr. Sagan repeatedly chastises religion for- this idea/hope that we are special. That we must be DIFFERENT from everything else. That we must be BETTER. Or more WORTHY. Well. There, I most certainly agree, Carl. We are not special. We are all equal and imperfect and divine. We must always be open to unseen truths when they finally present themselves.
I really did love this book, but not for the space stuff or for the mystery.
I loved it because of all the relationship stuff. The reminder not to take the little things for granted. To always keep trying, even when your lives appear to be separate.
I went in hoping the mystery would be good, but I solved that real quick and kept reading because I liked the characters.
in 2014 in Vienna in Austria. A witness had managed to capture a photograph of what they said was a huge transparent vehicle that had been floating among the clouds for around a period of two minutes and then it too disappeared.

WOW. WOW. WOW.
What a magical carpet ride! The Unfolding TWO was so beautiful and lovely and inspiring. Thank you to the magicians @akuasoadwa @humanphotography @ashnilivingthedream @missaliciaboone @jd.nyc @the_lastdreamer for makin’ it happen again! And to @minkabrooklyn For being a home for us!
We are in a time where technology is accelerating the movement of our minds and bodies, and when our minds and bodies are moving too fast, we actually can't listen to Spirit. That movement creates noise, tension, distraction from hearing the consciousness that wants to lead us with grace and beauty.
We created something extraordinary with The Unfolding II, and so much will open up in our lives because of this. Thank you to all my people who came to indulge in The Unfolding!
Special thanks to our experince partners--Jorge Cardenas of Cafe Ix and global documentarian @1982creativestudios.
Can’t wait for what is next!!!!!!!!! More photos coming. Card decks avail online soon!

Cosmic Eyelash as seen in ALMA image.📡📡📡 In fact, this is one galaxy located far away from us, but it appears doubled and magnified due to the gravitational lensing. ALMA has studied this and 5 other gravitationally lensed galaxies in order to better understand evolution of galaxies and their growth. In my previous post I have witten about young dwarf irregular galaxy NGC 4861, which is a home for fierce galactic winds, that could be explained by abundance of young newborn stars. It has also been said that such galactic winds could drive all the star forming gas out of the galaxy, thus halting birth of new stars. However, many young galaxies were able to keep star forming power and extend the period of active star formation. How did they manage this? 🤔
To shed light on this mystery, researchers using ALMA studied six distant starburst galaxies with redshift 2.5 to uncover vast turbulent reservoirs of cool gas, which served as "fuel tanks" for future star formation. To find such reservoirs, scientists detected signatures of carbon hydride ions (CH+). These ions are known to trace highly turbulent regions of hydrogen gas in and outside the galaxy.
It is now well understood that galactic winds powered by young newborn stars blast away most of the hydrogen gas, but the turbulent motion of this material cause the galaxy's gravitational pull to re-capture part of the pushed-out material and gather them in reservoirs of cool gas surrounding the galaxy and extending far away from its star forming region. Thus, fierce galactic winds driven by charged particles ejected from young stars, extend galaxy's star forming period by forming turbulent regions of cool gas and serving as "fuel tanks" for star formation. 🌌🌌🌌 #universe#astronomy#astronomy_facts#space#nasa#astronomypicturesdaily#astronomyday#astronomylovers#astronomyfacts#astronomyphotos#astronomyimagesdaily#astronomyimages#astronomyclub#esa#astronomypictureoftheday#physics#astronomynerd#astronomyart
