Astronaut Chris Hadfield recently wrote a post for Mashable about what it’s like to orbit the earth.

In just 92 minutes we go all the way around, incredulously gazing on place after place, barely known and only dreamed of. The colors and textures pour underneath, a refilling kaleidoscope of delight. Over the months in space that followed, I took thousands of photos to capture and remember it. My book You Are Here is the best of those photos — my guided tour of our planet, as if we were floating and looking out the spaceship window together. Here are a few.


Everything changes when you allow your mind to be quiet. You are not your habits, but what you give attention to time and time again will become your reality. There is nothing to fear. What may seem challenging can liberate you & expand your awareness for who you truly are. Who you think you are is not your true self. Everything you want is here now, you must loosen your grip on life to recognize the gifts. Don’t think too hard about what you want to do, always do what is already on the plate in front of you. Procrastination is the opposite of gratitude. If you feel tired, numb or negative, work through it. You are more than your physical & emotional sensations. Strengthen your intuition & it’s light will guide you. Learn to breath fully, it will grant you control over your thoughts. An open mind is necessary for freedom. Awareness is freedom. You will be as you breathe. You are light. You are here. I love you.
