It has been awhile since I have written, but know you have been in my thoughts. I hope my words find you in good health, enjoying things that make you smile, laugh, eyes sparkle, and rejuvenate – and of course play. I am grateful to be able to work from home these last few weeks with the loves of my life and have financial resources to pay bills/groceries. I am grateful to Sprouts – who has been delivering our groceries to our home and that 100% of the tips go directly to the driver. I am grateful for the mail lady – though I wish she would stop putting bills in our mailbox. I may only have one roll of toilet paper at this time but I have my health, ability to get out in nature and do bike rides, puppy walks, indoor online dancing, a free mountain bike training Zoom class, Zoom yoga classes- the amount of kindness spreading around this world is so humbling and beautiful to see! May you and your loved ones and your community be well and each moment overflowing with love <3 Love you all, Manda Read More7 Reply Diane3 days agoDianeGood morning Manda….such a joy to find you here.

Yes, I see them often in our common garden and am fascinated every time. I slow down and carefully stop to look at them and some times they keep on pecking while I am there.

I am a bird lover and will not see this bird (or add it to my “bird list”) in person in this lifetime. What magnificent creatures…it must be such a delight to have them in your garden. Do they visit yours as well? ~Om Shanti friend ♥ 2 Reply Palm2 days agoPalmDear Diane.. ❤️ Yes! They visit our garden too, to peck on the grass. They make a loud sound that reverberates in the courtyard of the complex. They are known here as Hadada because of that sound. To me they look prehistoric 🙂 Sending love, friend. 1 Reply grateful sea5 days agograteful seaPalm!

Here, in my region we do not have a mandated lock-down but most things are on ‘pause’ voluntarily and we only go to town for groceries and not so often. I won’t be traveling to see my parents for the near future but one good thing is that I have taken to phoning my mother every day to check in whether she likes it or not 🙂 And this has helped with my fear for her health as she does not yet seem to appreciate the risk. Dear Palm, you give such clear voice to holding the contradictions you feel — the great sadness and disbelief for all the suffering, and yes, hope in the form of all the beautiful goodwill emerging. We are in this together.

I’m so sorry you missed the gathering if you wanted to attend and I wish I had come to the lounge to ask if anyone would be joining in, but to tell the truth, I wasn’t sure I could be there, as social anxiety makes it very hard for me to show to a video meeting like that. But I did it, and I am glad. I hope hope there will be another time and I will remind you! How is your garden, dear Anna? Here there are sweet white violets and also a few purple ones blooming in the grass now. I saw a very special creature called a clear-wing hummingbird moth sipping nectar from them yesterday and this was my moment of joy. I am sitting on my back porch swing now and my old dog rests his bones in the warm sun. Thinking of you and wishing you and your family well and able to enjoy simple pleasures. A big hug too.

I imagine you, on the porch, you are calm, serene, deeply connected with nature and the people you love. I know your social anxiety because I’m like you, especially if I don’t know who is in front of me. I would have been excited if I had been to the meeting, because it’s one thing to write in a different language, it’s one thing to listen and even speak … My garden is very large and wonderful, tomorrow I will take a photo and post it here. Today I went to play sports, I ran around the perimeter of the garden and did some stretching exercises. Breathing this sweet spring air is like being in Heaven, as I have just told in the question of the day. Working at home can be more stressful and difficult than usual. Yesterday I had back problems, due to a wrong posture while typing, viewing documents from the video, a remote meeting with a client and even the use of a videocall on the mobile! Oh Grateful Sea, this is nothing, because it is a way to keep in touch with kind people I know thanks to my work and to tell the truth, also a way to continue working and earning. It is a blessing to be able to work safely. But the worst part is when my boss writes hes rude words, it makes me suffer her rudeness that sometimes I would like to publish to let people know how exhausting it is to be treated in this way. My sons, sharing this lockdown time with me, comforted me, said that she is aware that I am better than her, and that unfortunately she grew up as a rude woman, but she wants to prove that she is the boss. Forgive me my friend for my outburst, this is the bad part of my job, the other aspects are good and, from a human and professional point of view, I am grateful to have learned a lot from wonderful colleagues and clients. Feel embraced, Grateful Sea. Read More2 Reply grateful sea4 days agograteful seaYou are so dear, Anna. The kindness of your reply brought tears.

So deeply grateful that it was sent to me right now, and apart from it´s actuality in this world´s crisis, it opened something in me again, which I would like to share with you, if you don´t mind. Below you have a copy of the letter Einstein wrote to his daughter Lieserl: “Not many people understood me when I first came up with the theory of relativity. In this letter I will reveal something to you that you must transmit to all mankind. Beware, the message in this letter will collide with the popular prejudice and misunderstandings of our time. I must ask of you to guard these letters and their message as long as you deem necessary. Years or even decades until you see society is ready to listen and accept what I am about to share with you. There is a force so extremely power, that science has still not found a way to explain it. It is a power that engulfs and governs all other powers. I believe it is also in charge of all phenomena in the Universe, many of which we have not seen or explained yet. This universal force is LOVE. Cientists have not considered love in their efforts to present a unified theory of the Universe. They’ve neglected it even though it is the most powerful invisible force out there. Love represents Light, for it enlightens those who give it and receive it. It is gravity, because it makes people attracted to one another. Love is power that brings out and multiplies the best of all life. Love keeps humanity from annihilating itself in its blind narrow mindedness and selfishness. We live and die for it. Love is God, and God is Love. Through this force we can explain everything and find meaning in our lives. We have ignored love for such a long time, perhaps because we are afraid of it. Perhaps we ignore it because we cannot control it and quantify it. Explain it with our numbers and reason. I believe I have found a way to make love more visible, and it is through my famous formula E = MC2. If instead of this equation, we accept that the energy for universal healing can be obtained through love multiplied by the speed of light squared, we come at the conclusion that love is limitless, therefore it is truly the most powerful force in the Universe. Humanity has failed in its efforts to control the forces of the Universe, which have turned against us. In light of that, it is urgent that we heal and immerse ourselves in a different kind of energy… For the purpose of our survival, and in our quest to find meaning to our existence we must ensure the survival of every living soul on Earth by turning to love. It is the only true answer and solution. This force cannot be used through building a bomb of love, and use it to destroy all hate, greed and selfishness of our time. But never forget, each person has in them, a core made up of immense energy and love just waiting to be shared with the world. When we learn to grow and master this force within ourselves, my dear Lieserl, we will realize the full power of love, and its ability to conquer all, transcend everything and anything, for it is the very essence of our existence. I am forever sorry for not fully expressing the love I’ve always had for you in my heart. I realize I might be late with this apology, but please know I love you and it is thanks to you that I have reached the ultimate answer in life.” Your father, Albert Einstein.
