Real Success!

Dear Diary: Week one of 2017 is finished! So far this year I have, 1) written, “Dear Diary: Week one of 2017 is finished!” and, 2) Um…

“May you be so successful this year that people attribute all kinds of things to you that you never actually said!”

~Albert Einstein


But seriously…

 This year, more than ever before, may you know and live out the purpose   for which you were made.

“Forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward toward what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal…”  ~Philippians 3:13-14

    The future is always dark, the present only shines enough light for today. What happens beyond that is not an accident, just a series of today’s?

        Einstein was quoted on his 50th Birthday
        “Scientific research can reduce superstition by encouraging people to think and view things in terms of cause and effect. Certain it is that a conviction, akin to religious feeling, of the rationality and intelligibility of the world lies behind all scientific work of a higher order… This firm belief, a belief bound up with a deep feeling, in a superior mind that reveals itself in the world of experience, represents my conception of God. In common parlance this may be described as “pantheistic” (Spinoza).[10]”

      I like Einstein’s thinking very much until he gets to the “pantheistic” part. The idea that there must a superior mind behind a world that is rational and intelligible does not lead directly to the conclusion that the world IS God (pantheism). The supposition that God is something apart from and greater than the world seems more logical. When I see a work of art I don’t automatically conclude it must have created itself.

    Thanks for your words of inspiration. My goal this year is with my recent diagnosis of autism to takd full advantage of what gift came with autism — my passion for writing. I hope that something I write will touch someone’s heart with hope, faith, and laughter. Your postings touch my heart and I thank you for sharing.
