Do I live in a friendly or a hostile Universe?

This is the second part of Einstein’s philosophical thoughts.

Einstein who is best remembered as a scientist, found wisdom in his search for true, He said this:

“The most important decision you’ll ever make is
whether you live in a friendly universe or a hostile universe”

This literally can change the way you perceive the world, the way you perceive reality, because if you choose to live in a hostile world, then you will find a hostile world everywhere you go.

You may think these are just feeling good words, which may sound nice, and eventually may work for some issues, but they can’t change the word as it is.

Well these words are more powerful than you may think, let’s have simple example of how we perceive the “world outside”.

Try to remember when you were going to buy a car, let’s say you decide to by an specific car from a brand, almost everyday when you are on the streets, you may start noticing the same model of car you want to buy, you start noticing there are different types of the same model you want to buy, and you start encountering more and more cars of that brand than ever before.

The cars did not show up magically that day, they already were there before, but you didn’t notice them, because you didn’t think about them, but in the moment you start to think about it, they seem to show up more and more.

There is no difference with what Einstein said, (after all he is considered the brightest mind of the last century) when you choose to live in a hostile word, you start to find bad news, the people you talk to seem to tell you bad news most of the times, you find the worst drivers on your way, and bad news become a part of your life. It doesn’t mean there are not good people or good news, but you chose to live in a hostile Universe, therefore you perceive a hostile Universe everywhere you go.

The opposite is true as well, when you choose to live in a friendly Universe, you start to see opportunities everywhere you start to see more and more good news, or maybe you stop watching the news, you find good people all the time, good things start to happen. It doesn’t mean that there are no more bad news, it is just that you decide not to focus on them and start focusing in good things instead.

Trungnpa Chogyam in his book The Sacred Path of the Warrior has a very important observation:”we can actually cure ourselves of depression if we recognize that the world we have is good”

If you decide to live in a friendly world and wake every morning saying to yourself

I live in a friendly world.

Then at some point, you may find yourself in a different word, because you discovered reality is nothing else than what we perceive trough our thoughts, through the memories we have accumulated from the past, and that it is different to everyone, because everyone has chosen, even without knowing to live in a friendly or a hostile world

It is your choice

God Bless you

Imagination is Everything, it is the preview of life’s coming attractions

Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein is well known for his contributions to science, but most people don’t realize Einstein was also ahead of his time with his philosophical thoughts, we have been using some of Einstein’s principles in human development as well as in physics . His research in quantum physics are the basis of how we can change our reality by changing our thoughts, but not only in a philosophical way, but in a scientific way as well, because of Einstein we now know that the particles in an atom depend on the observer, that we can change the atom’s form from a particle to a wave,therefore we now know as Dr Wayne W. Dyer says:

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change

There is also the relativity principle which I will talking about it in a future post, but the one we a going to talk about it is “Imagination”

Imagination by definition is the ability of forming mental images, sensations and concepts, in a moment when they are not perceived through sight, hearing or other senses. It is our ability to create something that doesn’t exist (yet) in our minds, but it is also the ability to create what we imagined in our reality as well. All of the biggest accomplishes in human history started as a thought, started as imagination. It is called imagination, because it is the creation of imagethe with a thought.

There has been great examples of great people who has had great imagination: Steve Jobs, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Gandhi, martin Luther King, and so many others , and of course one of my favorites Walt Disney, who is the best example of imagination. He did not only used imagination to create Disney and everything that we now know about it, he also promoted imagination, because he knew the power of it, he knew that everything he created started as a thought, as an image in his mind.

But Walt Disney knew that an image in your mind is not enough, you need to implant that image in your heart in order to create that image as a reality and not only as a dream. Disney knew that when you put your heart in an idea, there are big chances it will come true, because your heart is the connection with your Higher Self, it is the connection with God, therefore , when you connect your ideas with God, magic starts to work for and with you.

When you wish upon a star your dreams come true

So use your imagination to create the life you want, the people you want to be with, the circumstances you need in your life, and then put your heart on those ideas,feel it as if it already exists in your life, then thank God for them, and be ready to enjoy Life’s coming attractions.

God Bless You
