The Most Beautiful Thing

Albert Einstein, USA

(Submitted by Julie Castello, USA)

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious - the knowledge of the existence of something unfathomable to us, the manifestation of the most profound reason coupled with the most brilliant beauty.

I cannot imagine a god that rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, or who has a will of the kind we experience in ourselves.

The Sun

Ueshiba Morihei O’Sensei, the great Shinto thinker and founder of the Art of Aikido said:

“Rise early in the morning to greet the Sun. Inhale and let yourself soar to the ends of the Universe; breath out and let the Cosmos inside. Next, breath up the fecundity and vibrance of Earth. Blend the breath of Earth and your own and become the breath of life itself. Your mind and body will be gladdened, depression and heartache will dissipate and you will be filled with light and gratitude.”

This is why we are here

The art of living, like the art of loving, is about listening to one's soul - that is, one's heart and consciousness. This is why we are here.
