Zen and the art of space travel

I want to share with you one of my best meditation images: Stargate Universe’s Ending Scene, endless sky, dark shades of blue, with light brush strokes and sparkles moving. Eli is standing on the bridge, heading to the unknown, a serene smile on his face, calmly he flies into the future, alone…

All the other spaceship members are frozen in deep sleep. Due to energy shortage they shut down most life systems, and Eli, alone, is left awake to fly them to the another galaxy (three years ahead!, give or take like Eli keeps saying), where they could recharge.

A ship called Destiny flies the galaxies, accumulating knowledge, inquiring human existence, trying to understand the big puzzle. Questioning belief, creation, finding our reason for being and our path, through embracing the magical fact we don’t know, and will not know everything.

And when I set my noisy mind to it, this scene takes me deeper into silence, I follow this motion of light until I feel inside this serenity, just like Eli, I surrender, to what may come…
