Edgar Mitchell was on his way home which was approximately 250,000 miles away.He along with other astronauts were busy operating their command module of Apollo 14.Two days before,Ed became the sixth man to land on the Moon.
The space craft was rotating slowly to balance the thermal effects from each side.Earth was intermittently framed through the window as a tiny crescent in an all engulfing night of stars.The Sky was like an all-encompassing entity which cradled Earth from all sides.
It was then,while staring out from the window,that Ed experienced the strangest feeling he would ever have: A feeling of connectedness,as if all the universe & people of all time were attached by some invisible web.He could hardly breath from the majesty of the moment.Although he continued to turn the knobs & buttons,he felt distanced from his body,as though someone else were doing the navigation.
There seemed to be an enormous force field here,connecting all people,their intentions & thoughts & every animate & inanimate form of matter for all time.Time was just an artificial construct.There were no accidents & individual intentions.The natural intelligence that had been gone for billions of years,was also responsible for his present journey.
This wasn’t something he was comprehending in his mind,but an overwhelmingly visceral feeling,as though he were physically extending out of spacecraft window to the very furthest reach of the cosmos.It was as though in a single instant he discovered & felt the Force which people call as GOD.
Edgar Mitchell felt what Eastern mystics refer to as ‘Ecstasy of Unity‘.
