Chapter 4: Feeling Weightless
 


Day One 
Experiencing a New Kind of Freedom

Safely docked with our mothership, CosmicSea, we unfasten our seat belts and take few moments to stretch our legs in zero-gravity. We begin to feel the essence of the fourth insight—weightlessness.

The first sensations of weightlessness are incredibly visceral and remind us of a good flying dream. We feel a new kind of freedom in moving without gravity.

Feel Weightless on Earth

When you need a lift, go to your local playground and swing on a swing. Delight in the weightless moment at the height of each swing just before gravity pulls you back to Earth. Experience the thrill of floating between up and down.

Because you can never escape the force of gravity, “weightlessness” is nothing more than a form of free-falling. There is a moment of “weightlessness” in every jump for joy and between every step we take.
