Astronauts who look down on earth from space for the first time often describe a profound shift in awareness when they gaze upon our fragile blue planet hanging in the immense black void of space. Those who experience this life-changing state of clarity, known as the "overview effect," come away with a new perspective, often describing earth as a small fragile island or oasis alone in the vastness of the universe.
Overwhelmed with awe at the fragility and unity of life on our tiny blue marble, they often describe a sobering contradiction, realizing at once the beauty and frailty of our small world and the unique opportunity we have been given to exist in this little haven against all odds, while simultaneously confronting the full weight of the social injustice, hunger, poverty, pollution, sickness, and conflict that threaten life on our otherwise blessed little oasis.
Evoking both profound awe and sadness, those privileged to have seen the earth from this unique perspective describe feeling a deep sense of unity and coherence, realizing that as we all travel together through space on this tiny, fragile island of life, we have only each other. They are awakened to the reality that the earth is one cohesive living organism, and we are all part of that organism - a unified consciousness separated from the harshness of space by only a thin swirling blue layer of atmosphere.
Those who have had this epiphany return to tell us that, if we hope for our journey to continue for future generations, it is time to start acting as one species with one destiny. If the earth becomes sick, we all become sick. If any of us suffers, we all suffer. And they urge us to adopt a new world view, a fundamental understanding of who we are as a species, and to act decisively by modifying our society to protect and nurture our vulnerable species and planet.
When you gaze into our Mystical Sky Sapphire Gemstone bracelet, you can almost imagine floating in the vastness of space, looking out at our little blue island of life. Handcrafted from genuine kyanite gemstone, with its ethereal deep blue tone and swirls of silvery iridescence, and featuring a finely detailed solid silver Global Zen Life custom centerpiece highlighting a brilliant blue sapphire, this stunning piece of jewelry art celebrates the awe-inspiring beauty and life-changing experience known only to those who have seen our planet and our species in all of its beauty, wholeness, and unity.
Pair with complimentary pieces from our Aurora Borealis Design Collection and, each time you look down at the swirling blue sphere, consider the incredibly rare gift we have been given, and know that it is up to us to protect each other and our tiny island oasis as we travel together as one through the eternal vastness of space, our destiny inexorably linked to one-another and to our fragile blue planet.
