energy insights

People often use their anger at social injustice as a basis for action, but that is unwise. When you are angry you are not lucid, and you can do many harmful things. According to Buddhism, the only source of energy that can be useful is compassion, because it is safe. When you have compassion, your energy is born from insight. It is not blind energy. With compassion, we practice in order to learn ways to protect the lives of people, animals, plants, and minerals. Just feeling compassion is not enough. If we do not know how to help, we can do damage. That is why love must go together with understanding.

Happy birthday, Albert Einstein!

Born March 14, 1879, in Ulm, Germany, Albert Einstein (1879−1955) seems not to have anticipated how famous his theories and ideas would make him. In fact, Einstein professed to be mystified by the adulation and attention that rained down on him as his last name became, even during his lifetime, a byword for “genius.”

The truth is, however, that his life and work continue to intrigue. As the Museum’s 2002-3 Einstein exhibition points out, “Albert Einstein reinterpreted the inner workings of nature, the very essence of light, time, energy, and gravity. His insights fundamentally changed the way we look at the universe—and made him the most famous scientist of the 20th century.”

Hi! I have a question about something that happened to me while meditating. I was in a very deep state of meditation and was just cleansing my chakras but when I got to my crown chakra there was a crazy white light and I got a flash of a scroll inscribed on it. I was wondering what that could mean or if it means anything at all? Thank you for your time and I hope you're doing well <3

I can definitely shed some guesses off the top of my head! If you want a more thorough answers, I know the Universe could speak directly with you in an Akashic Reading and tell you exactly what happened. I’d be happy to help with one of those too. :) 

Scrolls can symbolize a lot, but many people see them as either representations of specific messages, or portrayals of past lives. In many cases, scrolls and books represent parts of your own Akashic Records. Since these are very aligned to the Source, it would make sense that there was a bright light and this awareness once you had worked with your entire energy system and was at the top!

Happy birthday to Albert Einstein! The visionary physicist and passionate humanitarian was born on this day in 1879. 

He was daring, wildly ingenious, passionately curious. He saw a beam of light and imagined riding it; he looked up at the sky and envisioned that space-time was curved. Albert Einstein reinterpreted the inner workings of nature, the very essence of light, time, energy, and gravity. His insights fundamentally changed the way we look at the universe—and made him the most famous scientist of the 20th century.
