I pray that Christ will live in your hearts by faith and
that your life will be strong in love and be built on love.
And I pray that you will have the power to understand
the greatness of Christ’s love —
how wide and how long and how high and how deep that love is.
Christ’s love is greater than anyone can comprehend,
but I pray that you will be able to know that love.
In the late 1980s, Lieserl, the daughter of the famous genius, donated 1,400 letters, written by Einstein, to the Hebrew University, with orders not to publish their contents until two decades after his death. This is one of them, for Lieserl Einstein
”When I proposed the theory of relativity, very few understood me, and what I will reveal now to transmit to mankind will also collide with the misunderstanding and prejudice in the world.
I ask you to guard the letters as long as necessary, years, decades, until society is advanced enough to accept what I will explain below.
There is an extremely powerful force that, so far, science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others, and is even behind any phenomenon operating in the universe and has not yet been identified by us.
This universal force is LOVE. When scientists looked for a unified theory of the universe they forgot the most powerful unseen force.
Love is Light, that enlightens those who give and receive it.
Love is gravity, because it makes some people feel attracted to others.
Love is power, because it multiplies the best we have, and allows humanity not to be extinguished in their blind selfishness. Love unfolds and reveals.
For love we live and die. Love is God and God is Love. (1 John 4:15-17)
This force explains everything and gives meaning to life. This is the variable that we have ignored for too long, maybe because we are afraid of love, because it is the only energy in the universe that man has not learned to drive at will.
To give visibility to love, I made a simple substitution in my most famous equation. If instead of E = mc2, we accept that the energy to heal the world can be obtained through love multiplied by the speed of light squared, we arrive at the conclusion that love is the most powerful force there is, because it has no limits.
After the failure of humanity in the use and control of the other forces of the universe that have turned against us, it is urgent that we nourish ourselves with another kind of energy… If we want our species to survive, if we are to find meaning in life, if we want to save the world and every sentient being that inhabits it, love is the one and only answer. Perhaps we are not yet ready to make a bomb of love, a device powerful enough to entirely destroy the hate, selfishness and greed that devastate the planet.
However, each individual carries within them a small but powerful generator of love whose energy is waiting to be released. (1 John 4:10-12)
When we learn to give and receive this universal energy, dear Lieserl, we will have affirmed that love conquers all, is able to transcend everything and anything. (Romans 8:38-39)
I deeply regret not having been able to express what is in my heart, which has quietly beaten for you all my life. Maybe it’s too late to apologize, but as time is relative, I need to tell you that I love you and thanks to you I have reached the ultimate answer! “.
Your father Albert Einstein
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.
Why is it so hard to change our bad habits?
Not being able to change doesn’t’t mean you’re weak, stubborn, or lazy. Whatever it is that you resolved to do (or stop doing) in the past, there’s no doubt you meant it. So, what’s been standing in your way?
Your mind has a hidden agenda of its own to maintain the status quo. It is likely to reject anything that it perceives as new, unsettling, or potentially uncomfortable. This inherent resistance protects you from the negative disruption that sudden change can bring.
Unfortunately, this built-in defense mechanism can often sabotage positive change in your life as well.
Most people don’t realize the importance of their thought life and the impact it has on their body and emotions. Your body does what your mind tells it to do. Your mind controls your actions.
So you won’t be able to change your behavior without changing your mind.
If you want to successfully change your behavior, one of the best things you can do is to monitor your thought life and adjust your thinking. But you must be willing to look at your entrenched patterns of belief through a fresh lens. You need to become deliberate in your decision to monitor your thoughts and the assumptions you have been making.
We used to believe our brains couldn’t be changed. Now we believe they can – if we want it enough.
Neuroplasticity allows you to change your life and make happiness a reality. You can go from being a victim to a victor.
Even a casual search on Google will show a curious browser that neuroplasticity is a “magical” scientific discovery that shows that our brains are not hard-wired like computers, as was once thought, but are rather more like “play-doh.” This means that our thoughts can change the structure and function of our brains and that by doing certain exercises we can actually change our brain’s strength, size and density. Neuroplasticity means we can become better [human beings]. It doesn’t even have to be difficult.
Renewing your mind is the process of changing the way your mind operates. Most people don’t know where to start on their own. It’s not clear to them what they should do differently or how to create the change they desire. My FREE Renew Your Mind workbook is designed to help you create positive and sustainable change in your life. I show you how to break through cognitive barriers and provide the secret to making changes that stick.

I bless God every chance I get;
my lungs expand with his praise.I live and breathe God;
if things aren’t going well, hear this and be happy:
God met me more than halfway,
he freed me from my anxious fears.
Look at him; give him your warmest smile.
Never hide your feelings from him.
When I was desperate, I called out,
and God got me out of a tight spot.
Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see—
how good God is. Blessed are you who run to him.
God keeps an eye on his friends.
Is anyone crying for help?
God is listening, ready to rescue you.
If your heart is broken, you’ll find God right there;
if you’re kicked in the gut, he’ll help you catch your breath.
Do you not know that your body is a house of God where the Holy Spirit lives?
Now you belong to God. You do not belong to yourselves.
God bought you with a great price.
So honor God with your body because you belong to Him.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
If we live, we are living for the Lord. And if we die, we are dying for the Lord.
So living or dying, we belong to the Lord.
Q. What is your only comfort in life and in death?
A. That I am not my own,
but belong—body and soul, in life and in death
to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ.
Heidelberg Catechism – Q&A 1
“Don’t aim at success. The more you aim at it the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself.”
Viktor E. Frankl
A deep sense of love and belonging is an irreducible need of all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong. When those needs are not met, we don’t function as we were meant to. We break. We fall apart. We numb. We ache. We hurt others. We get sick.
Our culture is obsessed with happiness, but what if there’s a more fulfilling path? Happiness comes and goes, says writer Emily Esfahani Smith, but having meaning in life — serving something beyond yourself and developing the best within you — gives you something to hold onto. Learn more about the difference between being happy and having meaning as Smith offers four pillars of a meaningful life.
Sing joyful songs to the Lord!
Praise the mighty rock
where we are safe.
Come to worship him
with thankful hearts
and songs of praise.
The Lord is the greatest God,
king over all other gods.
Then I looked and saw a Lamb standing in the center of the throne
that was surrounded by the four living creatures and the elders.
The Lamb looked as if it had once been killed.
The Lamb went over and took the scroll
from the right hand of the one who sat on the throne.
After he had taken it, the four living creatures and
the twenty-four elders knelt down before him.
Then they sang a new song:
“You are worthy
to receive the scroll
and open its seals,
because you were killed.
And with your own blood
you bought for God
people from every tribe,
language, nation, and race.
