Never cease to stand like curious children before the Great Mystery into which we were born.”
― Albert Einstein
Curiosity has a mesmerizing attraction inviting us to look beyond the obvious, into a world where what we believe to be our imagination guides us through our life's journey of self discovery. Explorers are predictably equipped with a compass enabling them to navigate their way into the unknown reaches of a world waiting for them.
Professor Einstein had learned from his life's journey that there is much more to life than that which appears to our senses as if to say, what you see is all there is to experience. Albert Einstein was sufficiently wise not to provide his audiences with his clear cut understanding of that which lies over the rainbow. Professor Einstein references the great mystery beckoning each of us to go out into the world, to discover all that lies out of reach of our immediate understandings.
“We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library, whose walls are covered to the ceiling with books in many different languages. The child knows that someone must have written those books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the the languages in which they are written. The child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books, a mysterious order, which it does not comprehend but only dimly suspects.”~Albert Einstein
The Pentecost event provides us with the awareness that beyond the predictable rational view of our life, there is a growing understanding that the interior compass is pointing us in a direction that is not immediately clear, yet will become so when we take the road appearing before our inner sight leading us to reveal The Father's plan for our life. Lead kindly light.
Follow your compass, not your clock ~ Andrea Jung
