Brilliant Einstein

We all know the incredible influence that Albert Einstein had in the world of science. The ripple effect of his intense pursuit of knowledge will expand indefinitely.

We all know he was brilliant intellectually. What some may not know is that his spirit shined as brightly within his heart as his mind...maybe even more.

I came across a quote of his and it is one that you glean more each time you re-read it. No matter who you are, it is relative.

Albert Einstein said: "Strange is our situation here upon Earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeing it to serve a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do not 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 t…

The true story of Thanksgiving

Gratitude is a mindset that is a encouraged by many sources. Books, videos, quotes, and more convey the truth of the power of being grateful. Sometimes I think that we forget to truly feel and know what to be grateful for. Every person has a different set of circumstances. This can heavily influence what one may be grateful for in life. Or, we get so accustomed to what we do have; we do not truly realize what it would be like not to have it until it is gone.

The more you start to truly think about what to be grateful for, the more that will come to mind to acknowledge. You have 86,400 seconds a day to live.

Water the Soul

Water rocks us into a state~
A state of silence, stillness...self-awareness.

The strength of the water can tilt us to the edge of slumber...and back.

A reminder of change. Unpredictable. Unexpected flows...yet always a push to go deeper.

Going deeper within the true Self...just as in water, the deeper one goes in...the stiller all becomes.

It is the shallow waters that relentlessly move and bring no peace. The same truth is for the Self when residing in a shallow place.

Our lives are a flow of the waters within...

Physically, we love to ride the wave to see how high we can reach~
But, when we truly let ourselves surrender in the water when we fall...we will be taken to where we should be.

The secret? There is no secret. Follow the heart. Go with the water. Water cleans, water pushes, water gives back, water always finds space to simply be.

Do not fear the depths of water. As you go deeper, you find that the fear stays on the surface and rolls away like a wave.

Go even deeper and disc…
