The Spiritual Gifts of Sir Patrick Moore

December 10, 2012,
Claire Montanaro

He grew up in a world and at a time when conventionality was expected in appearance, speech, conduct and profession, but he did not care about that, living his life very publicly with modest charm and an endearing disregard for what people thought of him or how he looked: all he cared about was what was happening in the skies and why, and helping others to understand it too. Few people in Britain, at least, however young or old, will not have been touched by his passion and inspired by him to look at the richness of the cosmos for themselves. [caption id="attachment_1372" align="alignleft" width="300"]The dawn sky today The dawn sky today[/caption] He had the ability to hear the music of the stars and to feel the hand of God as he watched the processions of the universe; he talked openly about his belief in an afterlife, and liked to listen to trance music as he watched an eclipse from his observatory. Money meant nothing to him, and most of what he earned he gave away to help impoverished young astronomers follow their dream. In many ways Patrick Moore epitomised the New Consciousness perfectly, though he would have laughed to hear it. He was at ease with himself and lived as himself; he was wise; he lived simply; he lived kindly; and he knew he was part of all that is. He will have such fun playing with the stars and exploring the skies, and he can look back on a life on earth that was lived well and with grace. He has earned his place in Heaven.]]>

  1. This is a lovely write up, and after I tweeted you last night about him, I downloaded some astronomy software (Stellarium - its free) and spent the night star-gazing, something I have not done for a while. The night sky, on a clear night with no street lights, it a truly wonderful, mystical thing; the closest we can get to 'the great beyond', in this life I believe. He will be missed. x

    1. Thank you. If we spent more time looking at the skies and at the light, whether night or day, and less looking at our human past or future, our lives and souls would be so much richer. Last night must have been lovely for you - and Patrick would have been pleased.

  2. Thanks for the reply! Yes, I was watching Orion rise (I have a south facing view, almost, but not quite devoid of street lights - a blessing), Jupiter and slowly watched Sirius come up just below Orion. I also saw a shooting star, a meteor burn its way through our heavens. Its strange, but Patrick's passing has re-kindled my love for astronomy - its really therapeutic and amazing to just loose yourself into the wonders of the Universe. x
