The Great Heart of Einstein

March 22, 2011 By: celedra Category: Mind Body Spirit, Uncategorized

I woke up today gripped by the immense suffering that is happening in our world.  Sometimes I am struck with how little I am doing to help and, at other times, aware that in my very small way, I am doing what I can. In glancing through my emails, I ran across one from my friend Lea Walters mentioning that March is Einstein’s birth month.  His words so touched my heart – thank you Lea.

“Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know…that we are here for the sake of others…for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.”   Albert Einstein

    One of the great things about AE is that, professionally/scientifically he was so far beyond all the rest of us, but personally/humanly is was so like the rest of us. He is one of those whose ideas I will take to heart – not so much on faith, but in the spirit of following one who knows how to get where I want to go.
