Here​ ​are​ ​some​ ​inspiring​ ​words​ ​from​ ​Albert​ ​Einstein:​ ​🙏💫

“I​ ​didn’t​ ​arrive​ ​at​ ​my​ ​understanding​ ​of​ ​the​ ​fundamental​ ​laws​ ​of​ ​the​ ​universe​ ​through​ ​my​ ​rational​ ​mind.”

“Concerning​ ​matter,​ ​we​ ​have​ ​been​ ​all​ ​wrong.​ ​What​ ​we​ ​have​ ​called​ ​matter​ ​is​ ​energy,​ ​whose​ ​vibration​ ​has​ ​been​ ​so​ ​lowered​ ​as​ ​to​ ​be​ ​perceptible​ ​to​ ​the​ ​senses.​ ​Matter​ ​is​ ​spirit​ ​reduced​ ​to​ ​point​ ​of​ ​visibility.​ ​There​ ​is​ ​no​ ​matter.”

“Time​ ​and​ ​space​ ​are​ ​not​ ​conditions​ ​in​ ​which​ ​we​ ​live,​ ​but​ ​modes​ ​by​ ​which​ ​we​ ​think.
Physical​ ​concepts​ ​are​ ​free​ ​creations​ ​of​ ​the​ ​human​ ​mind,​ ​and​ ​are​ ​not,​ ​however​ ​it​ ​may​ ​seem,​ ​determined​ ​by​ ​the​ ​external​ ​world.”

“Time​ ​does​ ​not​ ​exist​ ​–​ ​we​ ​invented​ ​it.​ ​Time​ ​is​ ​what​ ​the​ ​clock​ ​says.​ ​The​ ​distinction​ ​between​ ​the​ ​past,​ ​present​ ​and​ ​future​ ​is​ ​only​ ​a​ ​stubbornly​ ​persistent​ ​illusion.”

“I​ ​think​ ​99​ ​times​ ​and​ ​find​ ​nothing.​ ​I​ ​stop​ ​thinking,​ ​swim​ ​in​ ​silence,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​truth​ ​comes​ ​to​ ​me.”

“The​ ​intellect​ ​has​ ​little​ ​to​ ​do​ ​on​ ​the​ ​road​ ​to​ ​discovery.​ ​There​ ​comes​ ​a​ ​leap​ ​in​ ​consciousness,​ ​call​ ​it​ ​intuition​ ​or​ ​what​ ​you​ ​will,​ ​the​ ​solution​ ​comes​ ​to​ ​you​ ​and​ ​you​ ​don’t​ ​know​ ​how​ ​or​ ​why.”

“A​ ​human​ ​being​ ​experiences​ ​himself,​ ​his​ ​thoughts​ ​and​ ​feelings​ ​as​ ​something​ ​separated​ ​from​ ​the​ ​rest,​ ​a​ ​kind​ ​of​ ​optical​ ​delusion​ ​of​ ​consciousness.​ ​This​ ​delusion​ ​is​ ​a​ ​kind​ ​of​ ​prison​ ​for​ ​us,​ ​restricting​ ​us​ ​to​ ​our​ ​personal​ ​desires​ ​and​ ​to​ ​affection​ ​for​ ​a​ ​few​ ​persons​ ​nearest​ ​to​ ​us.​ ​Our​ ​task​ ​must​ ​be​ ​to​ ​free​ ​ourselves​ ​from​ ​this​ ​prison​ ​by​ ​widening​ ​our​ ​circle​ ​of​ ​compassion​ ​to​ ​embrace​ ​all​ ​living​ ​creatures​ ​and​ ​the​ ​whole​ ​of​ ​nature​ ​in​ ​its​ ​beauty.”

“Our​ ​separation​ ​from​ ​each​ ​other​ ​is​ ​an​ ​optical​ ​illusion.”

“When​ ​something​ ​vibrates,​ ​the​ ​electrons​ ​of​ ​the​ ​entire​ ​universe​ ​resonate​ ​with​ ​it.​ ​Everything​ ​is​ ​connected.​ ​The​ ​greatest​ ​tragedy​ ​of​ ​human​ ​existence​ ​is​ ​the​ ​illusion​ ​of​ ​separateness.”

“Reality​ ​is​ ​merely​ ​an​ ​illusion,​ ​albeit​ ​a​ ​very​ ​persistent​ ​one.”

“We​ ​are​ ​souls​ ​dressed​ ​up​ ​in​ ​sacred​ ​biochemical​ ​garments​ ​and​ ​our​ ​bodies​ ​are​ ​the​ ​instruments​ ​through​ ​which​ ​our​ ​souls​ ​play​ ​their​ ​music.”

“When​ ​you​ ​examine​ ​the​ ​lives​ ​of​ ​the​ ​most​ ​influential​ ​people​ ​who​ ​have​ ​ever​ ​walked​ ​among​ ​us,​ ​you​ ​discover​ ​one​ ​thread​ ​that​ ​winds​ ​through​ ​them​ ​all.​ ​They​ ​have​ ​been​ ​aligned​ ​first​ ​with​ ​their​ ​spiritual​ ​nature​ ​and​ ​only​ ​then​ ​with​ ​their​ ​physical​ ​selves.”

“The​ ​true​ ​value​ ​of​ ​a​ ​human​ ​being​ ​can​ ​be​ ​found​ ​in​ ​the​ ​degree​ ​to​ ​which​ ​he​ ​has​ ​attained​ ​liberation​ ​from​ ​the​ ​self.”

“The​ ​ancients​ ​knew​ ​something,​ ​which​ ​we​ ​seem​ ​to​ ​have​ ​forgotten.”

“The​ ​more​ ​I​ ​learn​ ​of​ ​physics,​ ​the​ ​more​ ​I​ ​am​ ​drawn​ ​to​ ​metaphysics.”

“One​ ​thing​ ​I​ ​have​ ​learned​ ​in​ ​a​ ​long​ ​life:​ ​that​ ​all​ ​our​ ​science,​ ​measured​ ​against​ ​reality,​ ​is​ ​primitive​ ​and​ ​childlike.​ ​We​ ​still​ ​do​ ​not​ ​know​ ​one​ ​thousandth​ ​of​ ​one​ ​percent​ ​of​ ​what​ ​nature​ ​has​ ​revealed​ ​to​ ​us.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​entirely​ ​possible​ ​that​ ​behind​ ​the​ ​perception​ ​of​ ​our​ ​senses,​ ​worlds​ ​are​ ​hidden​ ​of​ ​which​ ​we​ ​are​ ​unaware.”

“I’m​ ​not​ ​an​ ​atheist.​ ​The​ ​problem​ ​involved​ ​is​ ​too​ ​vast​ ​for​ ​our​ ​limited​ ​minds.​ ​We​ ​are​ ​in​ ​the​ ​position​ ​of​ ​a​ ​little​ ​child​ ​entering​ ​a​ ​huge​ ​library​ ​filled​ ​with​ ​books​ ​in​ ​many​ ​languages.​ ​The​ ​child​ ​knows​ ​someone​ ​must​ ​have​ ​written​ ​those​ ​books.”

“The​ ​common​ ​idea​ ​that​ ​I​ ​am​ ​an​ ​atheist​ ​is​ ​based​ ​on​ ​a​ ​big​ ​mistake.​ ​Anyone​ ​who​ ​interprets​ ​my​ ​scientific​ ​theories​ ​this​ ​way,​ ​did​ ​not​ ​understand​ ​them.”

“Everything​ ​is​ ​determined,​ ​every​ ​beginning​ ​and​ ​ending,​ ​by​ ​forces​ ​over​ ​which​ ​we​ ​have​ ​no​ ​control.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​determined​ ​for​ ​the​ ​insect,​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​for​ ​the​ ​star.​ ​Human​ ​beings,​ ​vegetables,​ ​or​ ​cosmic​ ​dust,​ ​we​ ​all​ ​dance​ ​to​ ​a​ ​mysterious​ ​tune,​ ​intoned​ ​in​ ​the​ ​distance​ ​by​ ​an​ ​invisible​ ​piper.”

“The​ ​religion​ ​of​ ​the​ ​future​ ​will​ ​be​ ​a​ ​cosmic​ ​religion.​ ​It​ ​will​ ​transcend​ ​a​ ​personal​ ​God​ ​and​ ​avoid​ ​dogma​ ​and​ ​theology.”

“Energy​ ​cannot​ ​be​ ​created​ ​or​ ​destroyed,​ ​it​ ​can​ ​only​ ​be​ ​changed​ ​from​ ​one​ ​form​ ​to​ ​another.”

“Everything​ ​is​ ​energy​ ​and​ ​that​ ​is​ ​all​ ​there​ ​is​ ​to​ ​it.​ ​Match​ ​the​ ​frequency​ ​of​ ​the​ ​reality​ ​you​ ​want​ ​and​ ​you​ ​can​ ​not​ ​help​ ​but​ ​get​ ​that​ ​reality.​ ​It​ ​can​ ​be​ ​no​ ​other​ ​way.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​not​ ​philosophy.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​physics.”

“I​ ​am​ ​happy​ ​because​ ​I​ ​want​ ​nothing​ ​from​ ​anyone.​ ​I​ ​do​ ​not​ ​care​ ​about​ ​money.​ ​Decorations,​ ​titles​ ​or​ ​distinctions​ ​mean​ ​nothing​ ​to​ ​me.​ ​I​ ​do​ ​not​ ​crave​ ​praise.​ ​I​ ​claim​ ​credit​ ​for​ ​nothing.​ ​A​ ​happy​ ​man​ ​is​ ​too​ ​satisfied​ ​with​ ​the​ ​present​ ​to​ ​dwell​ ​too​ ​much​ ​on​ ​the​ ​future.”​ ​
