Albert Einstein’s ‘spiritual’ mysticism took the form of a ‘rapturous amazement at the harmony of natural law, which reveals an Intelligence of such superiority that, compared to it, all the systematic thinking and acting of the human being is an utterly irrelevant reflection!’
He realised that the Universe is a gigantic organic process of immense complexity and relativity, where everything is connected to everything else.
Human beings are intricately linked to that perpetual process of growth, decline and rebirth and are a reflection of that Eternal Light.
Words are much too clumsy to describe this, so he used the more complex language of mathematics.
He discovered, as did many of his erudite colleagues, that this too falls way short of describing the mystery of existence and the extraordinary ‘sensation of the mystical’ which is pure Love … a sensation he hoped all human beings could experience …
He realised that this beautiful, intense, overwhelming emotion was ‘akin to that which possessed the spiritual sages of all time!’
He ‘awoke’ to this Truth. It was his revelationary ‘awakening’.
He was now saying what the sages and deep philosophers of the past had said all along, but were often castigated, scorned, even crucified for their teachings … science was joining spirituality …
