Albert Einstein was ahead of his time in many ways, not only physics.
He recognized very early on that we are all connected.

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

― Albert Einstein

I am not a wordsmith, I have been given another quality that I adore to be a geek, However I happily learn from other wordsmiths and include those lessons learned into my life.

On of those lessons is “Live here and now, not in the past and not in the future”. Why?

Let the Daila Lama explain:

“Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

When a bird is alive… it eats Ants.
When the bird is dead, Ants eat the bird!
Time & Circumstances can change at any time,
don’t devalue or hurt anyone in life.
You may be powerful today, but Remember that
time is more powerful than You!!
One tree makes a million match sticks, but when the time comes
only one match stick is needed to burn a million trees.
Don’t judge me till you know me,
don’t underestimate me till you challenge me,
don’t talk about me till you talk to me.
The world is full of haters, they will hate you,
rate you and even try to break you,
but how you stand up to them will make you.

Let your hater be your motivator.
