Affirmative Prayer for Virgin Galactic – Spaceship Company
By Rev. Lucinda Martin November 9, 2014
As some of you know, one of my sons has been working for Virgin Galactic & Spaceship Company. Sadly, October 31 was a tragic day; Spaceshiptwo crashed resulting in the
loss of one pilot and injuries to another. My son shared with me how the entire company is in deep grief and the efforts being made in navigating this, gracefully.
Please join in with healing thoughts and prayers in support of all of the employees,families and friends.
I am in awe of how our children’s generation is pioneering such magnanimous innovation in support of humankind. Below is a link to a website that VG will now be using to continue communication about what they are doing and why. In reading thewebsite I was inspirited by the messages and wanted to share one quote:“For Virgin Galactic, everything rest on our vision of creating accessible and democratized space that will benefit humanity in countless ways for generations to come. Like early air or sea technologies, the development is not easy and comes with great risks, but our team of more than 400 dedicated engineers and technicians are committed to realizing the potential of this endeavor. From research, to travel, to innovations, we believe that the technology our industry is pioneering is crucial to the advancement of humanity.” George Whitesides, CEO for the Virgin Galactic and Spaceship Company.
I have also posted below a link for a memorial site and fund for Mike Alsbury and the link to Peter Siebold’s story of how he survived. Here is a quote from him;““I must have lost consciousness at first. I can’t remember anything about what happened but I must have come to during the fall. I remember waving to the chase plane and giving them the thumbs-up to tell them I was OK. I know it’s a miracle Isurvived.”hmmmmm - "miracle" he says.... love that.My heart desires to offer an Affirmative Prayer: (Affirmative prayers are written in first person so the reader/speaker has a full experience of “spiritual mind treatment” as taught by Ernest Holmes.) Blessed BE oh Great Spirit for the Divine Presence of Infinite Love and Support. It is in knowing the Truth of Infinite Mind, Creator of All – First Cause, there is only Wholeness and Wisdom and Oneness. Infinite Wisdom, is the Divine Expression of Great Spirit and I trust in Divine Order.
It is in this dark hour of sadness, I am reminded that behind the stormy clouds, Sun continues It’s expression of Great Light, as do the stars of Universe. It is in the knowing of Oneness how we are all connected that I remember this Truth for all: I AM a microcosmic expression of Macrocosmic, Creative Intelligence, and as such a Divine Expression of Wholeness, Peace and Wisdom.
I claim Wholeness, Peace and Faith for all the families and friends of Mike Alsbury and Peter Siebold.Mike Alsbury and Peter Siebold , friends, family and all of the devoted employees of Virgin Galactic – Spaceship Company are One with Great Spirit. Never can there be separation. In Knowing and trusting in Oneness, I trust in the Infinite Supply and Support for all, regardless of the human experience and appearances of loss and destruction. I give thanks for Divine Order being revealed, Peace restored, *Conviction deepened and Divine Wisdom expressed. Blessed be for the Infinite Supply and support for all of the families and friends.
God speed to Mike Asbury – may you and your family and friends be blessed by the Grace of Love and Golden Memories. Blessings for Peter Siebold – may the healings be swift. May the courage of all the employees and families continue to inspire humankind. May the sacrifices made by the employees and families continue to be a source of encouragement for humankind. And, may Great Spirit - Creative Intelligence, continue to bring the wind beneath the wings of all the pioneers of space travel.
Blessed BE. And so it is. * The Virtue of Conviction: The strength of showing that one is firmly convinced of what one believes or says even when no one is watching.
