A Letter From Einstein…

7 May

Einstein_laughing

In the late 1980s, Lieserl, the daughter of the famous genius, donated 1,400 letters, written by Einstein, to the Hebrew University, with orders not to publish their contents until two decades after his death. This is one of them, for Lieserl Einstein.

…”When I proposed the theory of relativity, very few understood me, and what I will reveal now to transmit to mankind will also collide with the misunderstanding and prejudice in the world.
I ask you to guard the letters as long as necessary, years, decades, until society is advanced enough to accept what I will explain below.
There is an extremely powerful force that, so far, science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others, and is even behind any phenomenon operating in the universe and has not yet been identified by us.

This universal force is LOVE.
When scientists looked for a unified theory of the universe they forgot the most powerful unseen force.

Love is Light, that enlightens those who give and receive it.
Love is gravity, because it makes some people feel attracted to others.

Love is power, because it multiplies the best we have, and allows humanity not to be extinguished in their blind selfishness. Love unfolds and reveals.

For love we live and die.
Love is God and God is Love.

This force explains everything and gives meaning to life. This is the variable that we have ignored for too long, maybe because we are afraid of love because it is the only energy in the universe that man has not learned to drive at will.

To give visibility to love, I made a simple substitution in my most famous equation.

If instead of E = mc2, we accept that the energy to heal the world can be obtained through love multiplied by the speed of light squared, we arrive at the conclusion that love is the most powerful force there is, because it has no limits.
After the failure of humanity in the use and control of the other forces of the universe that have turned against us, it is urgent that we nourish ourselves with another kind of energy…

If we want our species to survive, if we are to find meaning in life, if we want to save the world and every sentient being that inhabits it, love is the one and only answer.
Perhaps we are not yet ready to make a bomb of love, a device powerful enough to entirely destroy the hate, selfishness and greed that devastate the planet.

However, each individual carries within them a small but powerful generator of love whose energy is waiting to be released.
When we learn to give and receive this universal energy, dear Lieserl, we will have affirmed that love conquers all, is able to transcend everything and anything, because love is the quintessence of life.

I deeply regret not having been able to express what is in my heart, which has quietly beaten for you all my life. Maybe it’s too late to apologize, but as time is relative, I need to tell you that I love you and thanks to you I have reached the ultimate answer! “.

Love is Only a Word

14 Feb

marian-bantjes-02

Life is too short for us to keep important words, for example, ‘I love you’, locked in our hearts.

But do not always expect to hear the same words back. We love because we need to love. Otherwise, love loses all meaning and the sun ceases to shine.

A rose dreams of enjoying the company of bees, but none appears. The sun asks:
‘Aren’t you tired of waiting?’
‘Yes,’ answers the rose, ‘but if I close my petals, I will wither and die.’

And yet, even when Love does not appear, we remain open to its presence. Sometimes, when loneliness seems about to crush everything, the only way to resist is to keep on loving.

Our one true choice is to plunge into the mystery of that uncontrollable force.
Then we discover, when we go home, that someone was there waiting for us, looking for the same thing we were looking for and experiencing the same anxieties and longings.

Because love is like the water that is transformed into a cloud: it’s lifted up into the heavens, where it can see everything from a distance, aware that, one day, it will have to return to earth.

Because love is like the cloud that is transformed into rain: it is drawn down to the earth, where it waters the fields.

Love is only a word, until we decide to let it possess us with all its force.
Love is only a word, until someone arrives to give it meaning.

Don’t give up. Remember, it’s always the last key on the keyring that opens the door.

Inner Peace

25 Mar

Negative passions may run high,
but they do not have to rule you.

Your inner peace, and the sanctity of your being, are not worth trashing because of some negative feeling you have about something. Just let it go, and return to the knowing and experiencing of who you really are.

Try not to abandon the self. Try very hard.
In the end, your soul will be so grateful.

Living-True-Relationship

24 Oct

“Living-true-relationships: these are connections that prosper from observations looking for more participation . . . never . . . inspections looking for the judgments of performance.

When you experience the fulfillment of such a relationship — a living-true-relationship — you have an awareness of connection without any credits or scores for the performance. It is effortless . . . it is painless . . . it is gratifying.

There are many options in every moment of life, but in such a true relationship you are without options. You have surrendered all of your options to your commitment . . . and this is why — even though they are desired – living – true – relationships are generally avoided.

You fear giving up your options (they represent safety nets and backup plans) and these kind of authentic relationships are where options are no longer options. Survival instincts tell you to run like the wind.

Touch the teachings of the greatest masters – “be as death while alive,” they tell you, “have no options.” When you have this as a choice of no choice, you are at the gates of surrender at all times. This is authenticity; sit and seek no results in it . . . just be in this state of complete zero — shunya. This is the gateway to the land of miracles. You cannot calculate your way into this land, but once you are in — you do not want to leave — you have the time of your life — you become a beacon for others.”

~ Guru Singh

Forgiveness

29 May

Image

Through forgiveness, which essentially means recognizing the instability of the past and allowing the present moment to be as it is, the miracle of transformation happens not only within but also without. A silent space of intense presence arises both in you and around you. Whoever or whatever enters that field of consciousness will be affected by it, sometimes visibly and immediately, sometimes at deeper levels with visible changes appearing at a later time. You dissolve discord, heal pain, dispel unconsciousness — simply by being and holding that frequency of intense presence. 

 

— Eckhart Tolle

The songs we sing

25 Apr

The songs we sing
are like foam on the surface of sea of being
while the precious gems lie deep beneath.
But the tenderness in our songs
is a reflection of what is hidden in the depths.
Stop the flow of your words,
open the window of your heart and
let the spirit speak.
Rumi
