Einstein, Energy and You

One of my guiding principles has become Albert Einstein's theory called conservation of energy, "Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be transformed from one form to another." It is one of our most treasured laws of physics and deals with every part of our lives.

I believe Albert Einstein was a very sensitive spiritual light being and at an early age he knew what his life purpose was. He was not only brilliant, but also imaginative and intuitive. I think imagination and intuition are actually prerequisites of being a genius. 

I recall reading a story of someone who during her childhood went on a school field trip from New York City to Princeton University in New Jersey to visit Albert Einstein. During the visit a young boy asked Einstein how someone could become as smart as he? Einstein responded that they would need to use their imagination. Then another boy asked how someone could become even smarter than Einstein and he responded that they would need to use their imagination even more.


Here is a quote from Einstein on imagination:

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

Children should be free to use their imagination and creativity. The best individuals to encourage and nurture these are their parents, grandparents, caregivers and teachers.

It seems that everywhere I go these days a quote from Einstein appears. Just the other day, while looking for a birthday card for a friend, I found a beautiful card with the following profound quote from Einstein:

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

It is said that Einstein did not actually believe there is a  “God” but believed there was a higher power in the universe.  He was more interested in if there was a God how God created the universe?

“A human being is part of a whole called by us the universe.”

If everything is energy and cannot be destroyed, then we are all energy and have life everlasting. To me this means that the energy within and surrounding us is constant, and we have the power to change that energy. This is how I try to live my life. When I’m tired I rest; when I’m sad I think of happier times; when I’m angry I think of why I’m grateful.

Mindfully managing our thoughts, words and actions can help us manage energy within and around us. Getting out in the sunshine or into water or nature are great ways to change our energy from low to high. There are many ways to manage our energy although the first step is awareness.

My favorite quote by Einstein is:

“Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.”

I am grateful for feeling and seeing Albert Einstein’s presence in my life. His energy and consciousness remains forever in the ocean of our universal energy.
