Einstein Thoughts



“Many people think that the progress of the human race is based on experiences of an empirical, critical nature, but I say that true knowledge is to be had only through a philosophy of deduction. For it is intuition that improves the world, not just following the trodden path of thought. Intuition makes us look at unrelated facts and then think about them until they are all brought under one law. To look for related facts means holding onto what one has instead of searching for new facts. Intuition is the father of new knowledge, while empiricism is nothing but an accumulation of old knowledge. Intuition, not intellect, is the ‘open sesame’ of yourself.”

“Religion and science go together. Science without religion is lame and religion without science is blind. They are interdependent and have a common goal—the search for truth. It is absurd when scientists say there is no God. The real scientist has faith, which does not mean that he must subscribe to a creed. Without religion, there is no charity. The soul given to each of us is moved by the same living spirit that moves the universe.”

“I think with intuition. The basis of true thinking is intuition. Indeed, it is not intellect, but intuition, which advances humanity. Intuition tells a man his purpose in life. One never goes wrong following his feelings. I don’t mean emotions, I mean feelings, for feelings and intuition are one.”

 “There is a point in your life where only intuition can make the leap ahead, without knowing precisely how. You can never know why, but you must accept intuition as a fact. Intuitive perceptions are the most subtle and pure type of feelings. This is why intuition, the perceptual ability to know without seeing arises through the heart. Meaning you have to have an open heart to be able to feel these pure types of feelings. And to have an open heart you have to be willing to be vulnerable.”

“Natural intelligence and intuition are heightened when you learn to listen more deeply to your heart’s simple feeling messages. The more you learn how to listen to your heart the more you learn to listen to other hearts and the easier it becomes to listen to life.”

“To listen is to suffer because you do not want to listen to anything that might require a change. To listen is to change. You cannot change without listening. Listening implies a change. You need to change just to listen.”

“Most people are horrible listeners and you can tell when people don’t listen when they interrupt, respond with yes buts, or simply change the subject. The worst kinds of non-listeners just never stop talking and they just do not seem to care whether you want to listen or not. Usually we want to run from them but feel trapped by social conventions to be nice or polite.”

“Life stripped of feelings is a life stripped of meaning. Your intuitive feelings are navigational beacons that play a crucial role in making the decisions upon which your destiny depends. Every feeling has its value and significance. They light your path of life.”

“Pure feelings like intuition have no thought component like emotions do; there is no time for them in their most pure form. They come from a place beyond the thinking mind and they are often the most essential guides that steer your life.”

“Intuition is a basic perceptual ability different from imagination, concept making ability or intellect. It is your God-given ability to plug into the universe, which even insects have. It is more than instinct yet instinct and gut feelings are what it is all about.”

“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us “universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest—a kind of optical illusion of his 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.”
