A letter from Albert Einstein to his daughter: about The Universal Force which is LOVE

Reposted from: https://suedreamwalker.wordpress.com/2015/04/15/a-letter-from-albert-einstein-to-his-daughter-about-the-universal-force-which-is-love/

In the late 1980s, Lieserl, the daughter of the famous genius, donated 1,400 letters, written by Einstein, to the Hebrew University, with orders not to publish their contents until two decades after his death. This is one of them, for Lieserl Einstein.More can be found about Lieserl here

…”When I proposed the theory of relativity, very few understood me, and what I will reveal now to transmit to mankind will also collide with the misunderstanding and prejudice in the world.
I ask you to guard the letters as long as necessary, years, decades, until society is advanced enough to accept what I will explain below.
There is an extremely powerful force that, so far, science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others, and is even behind any phenomenon operating in the universe and has not yet been identified by us.

This universal force is LOVE.
When scientists looked for a unified theory of the universe they forgot the most powerful unseen force.

Love is Light, that enlightens those who give and receive it.
Love is gravity, because it makes some people feel attracted to others.

Love is power, because it multiplies the best we have, and allows humanity not to be extinguished in their blind selfishness. Love unfolds and reveals.

For love we live and die.
Love is God and God is Love.

This force explains everything and gives meaning to life. This is the variable that we have ignored for too long, maybe because we are afraid of love because it is the only energy in the universe that man has not learned to drive at will.

To give visibility to love, I made a simple substitution in my most famous equation.

If instead of E = mc2, we accept that the energy to heal the world can be obtained through love multiplied by the speed of light squared, we arrive at the conclusion that love is the most powerful force there is, because it has no limits.
After the failure of humanity in the use and control of the other forces of the universe that have turned against us, it is urgent that we nourish ourselves with another kind of energy…

If we want our species to survive, if we are to find meaning in life, if we want to save the world and every sentient being that inhabits it, love is the one and only answer.
Perhaps we are not yet ready to make a bomb of love, a device powerful enough to entirely destroy the hate, selfishness and greed that devastate the planet.

However, each individual carries within them a small but powerful generator of love whose energy is waiting to be released.
When we learn to give and receive this universal energy, dear Lieserl, we will have affirmed that love conquers all, is able to transcend everything and anything, because love is the quintessence of life.

I deeply regret not having been able to express what is in my heart, which has quietly beaten for you all my life. Maybe it’s too late to apologize, but as time is relative, I need to tell you that I love you and thanks to you I have reached the ultimate answer! “.

Your father Albert Einstein

  1. I was told this one morning on my way to work about 10 years ago. I had asked spirit, what is it I need to know right now? I want to know what is it. I had been asking this for a while and I kept seeing love, luv, inluv ….. On licence plates, on signs, in songs…….It was coming up everywhere. Well, a voice spoke this one morning and said exactly those words,”Love conquers all”. It was said loudly and clearly. So thank you for sharing his amazing letter and the beautiful truth. 😇

    • Isn’t that more important? The text? The message? We can never really prove who wrote it..I posted this from another blog without even thinking whether Einstein wrote it because the message touched me. Perhaps also because I wanted to believe that he had a heart and or a hidden secret on what he really was?

    • Her passing is only speculation at this point. Sadly, almost everything surrounding her is speculation and the truth may never be known. If there are letters, they could compare his writings and solve some of the mystery, but even then, handwriting experts can’t always tell. This just amplifies the mystery even more so. There is much truth in the letter though 🙂

    • According to Wikipedia: The discovery and publication in 1987 of an early correspondence between Einstein and Marić revealed that they had had a daughter, called “Lieserl” in their letters, born in early 1902 in Novi Sad where Marić was staying with her parents. Marić returned to Switzerland without the child, whose real name and fate are unknown. Einstein probably never saw his daughter. The contents of his letter to Marić in September 1903 suggest that the girl was either adopted or died of scarlet fever in infancy.[33][34]

      SO, there is no certainty about her faith. At the end of his letter Albert writes:
      “I deeply regret not having been able to express what is in my heart, which has quietly beaten for you all my life. MAYBE IT’S TOO LATE TO APOLOGIZE,, but as time is relative, I need to tell you that I love you and thanks to you I have reached the ultimate answer! “.
      This gives me the impression that the child was given away for adoption. And this letter can be written to her (dead or alive) to help Einstein to make peace with his own conscience.

    • If you look up Einstein on Wikipedia it states “Albert’s three children were from his relationship with his first wife, Mileva Marić, his daughter Lieserl being born a year before they married.” It continues with (Albert’s Einstein’s daughter)

      “Lieserl Einstein

      Born
      January 1902
      Novi Sad, Vojvodina, Austria-Hungary (present day Republic of Serbia)

      Died
      18 September 1903 (?)

      Cause of death
      Scarlet fever (?)

      Resting place
      The outskirts of Novi Sad (?)

      Residence
      Novi Sad (1902–19??)

      Parent(s)
      Mileva Marić and Albert Einstein

      Relatives
      Marija Marić née Ružić, Miloš Marić, Pauline Einstein née Koch, Hermann Einstein, Hans Albert Einstein and Eduard Einstein.

      Lieserl Einstein (born January 1902 – last mentioned in 1903; possible date of death, 18 September 1903[citation needed]) was the first child of Mileva Marić and Albert Einstein.

      According to the correspondence between her parents, “Lieserl” was born in January 1902, a year before her parents married, in Novi Sad, Vojvodina, present day Serbia, and was cared for by her mother for a short time while Einstein worked in Switzerland before Marić joined him there without the child.”

      “Lieserl’s” existence was unknown to biographers until 1986, when a batch of letters between Albert and Mileva were discovered by Hans Albert Einstein’s daughter Evelyn.

      Marić had hoped for a girl, while Einstein would have preferred a boy. In their letters, they called the unborn child “Lieserl”, when referring to a girl, or “Hanserl”, if a boy. Both “Lieserl” and “Hanserl” were augmentatives of the common German names Liese and Hans.

      The first reference to Marić’s pregnancy was found in a letter Einstein wrote to her from Winterthur, probably on 28 May 1901 (letter 36), asking twice about “the boy” and “our little son”,[13] whereas Marić’s first reference was found in her letter of 13 November 1901 (letter 43) from Stein am Rhein, in which she referred to the unborn child as “Lieserl”.[14] Einstein goes along with Marić’s wish for a daughter, and referred to the unborn child as “Lieserl” as well, but with a sense of humour as in letter 45 of 12 December 1901 “… and be happy about our Lieserl, whom I secretly (so Dollie[15] doesn’t notice) prefer to imagine a Hanserl.”[16]

      The child must have been born shortly before 4 February 1902, when Einstein wrote: “… now you see that it really is a Lieserl, just as you’d wished. Is she healthy and does she cry properly? […] I love her so much and don’t even know her yet!”[17]

      The last time “Lieserl” was mentioned in their extant correspondence was in Einstein’s letter of 19 September 1903 (letter 54), in which he showed concern for her suffering from scarlet fever. His asking “as what is the child registered? [Adding] we must take precautions that problems don’t arise for her later” may indicate the intention to give the child up for adoption.[18]

      As neither the full name, nor the fate of the child are known, so far several theories about her life and death have been put forward:
      Michele Zackheim, in her book on “Lieserl”, Einstein’s Daughter, states that “Lieserl” was mentally challenged at birth, and that she lived with her mother’s family and probably died of scarlet fever in September 1903.[19]
      Another possibility, favoured by Robert Schulmann of the Einstein Papers Project, is that “Lieserl” was adopted by Marić’s close friend, Helene Savić, and was raised by her and lived under the name “Zorka Savić” until the 1990s. Savić did in fact raise a child by the name of Zorka, who was blind from childhood and died in the 1990s. Her grandson Milan Popović rejects the possibility that it was “Lieserl”, and also favors the theory that the child died in September 1903.[20]

      These letters may very well have been written by Einstein. It is could be that the child was either adopted or died at a very young age.

Whether he wrote it or not is not going to change anything, only separate us because of our differences. Don’t we want a better world? Yes.

  4. No way this high school level of writing is authored by Einstein. It’s insulting it’s being passed off as such. He was an atheist so the line about God supposedly written by him is reaching. Love is at the center of everything but it’s laughable to think he wrote about it in such trite pros.

    • I do not agree with your statement that Einstein was an atheist. I own two books about his life and I am sure it is mentioned several times that Einstein believed in God. And what you call “trite pros”: I do not speak English by nature (I am Belgian), but I think I understand what you want to express. And I do not find the ‘letter’ ‘trivial’ at all. It is inspired by the heart and the heart does not need bombastic language. According to what I have read, Lieserl was either given away for adoption or died very young. Please read my opinion on that posted on the third of December. I found the ‘letter’ heartwarming and inspiring enough to translate it into Dutch and send it to many of my friends. As a result, I received several positive comments. But you are -of course- free to believe what you want! I wish you nice holidays.

      • I feel the need to clarify one of your points here. Einstein did not believe in “god”, or “a god”. He lost his faith (was brought up by Jewish parents) when he was 12. Please see the below extract taken from some of his autobiographical notes.

        . . . I came—though the child of entirely irreligious (Jewish) parents—to a deep religiousness, which, however, reached an abrupt end at the age of twelve. Through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached the conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true. The consequence was a positively fanatic orgy of freethinking coupled with the impression that youth is intentionally being deceived by the state through lies; it was a crushing impression. Mistrust of every kind of authority grew out of this experience, a skeptical attitude toward the convictions that were alive in any specific social environment—an attitude that has never again left me, even though, later on, it has been tempered by a better insight into the causal connections. It is quite clear to me that the religious paradise of youth, which was thus lost, was a first attempt to free myself from the chains of the ‘merely personal,’ from an existence dominated by wishes, hopes, and primitive feelings. Out yonder there was this huge world, which exists independently of us human beings and which stands before us like a great, eternal riddle, at least partially accessible to our inspection and thinking. The contemplation of this world beckoned as a liberation, and I soon noticed that many a man whom I had learned to esteem and to admire had found inner freedom and security in its pursuit. The mental grasp of this extra-personal world within the frame of our capabilities presented itself to my mind, half consciously, half unconsciously, as a supreme goal. Similarly motivated men of the present and of the past, as well as the insights they had achieved, were the friends who could not be lost. The road to this paradise was not as comfortable and alluring as the road to the religious paradise; but it has shown itself reliable, and I have never regretted having chosen it.

The theory of Intentional Resonance may just be what the world needs now to bring Albert Einsteins understanding to fruition.

    • It’s when you feel it…it matters not where it comes from…feeling love within us is what matters. His/her love is only as long as they choose to love you. Your love for self is yours to control and however long you want to feel love. Love can be expressed in many ways as it has been over the centuries, but it’s been overrated because love is not something we desire to have, we already have love, we were born in love, we simply forgot . The moment we came out of our mothers womb, the programming starts, and slowly through time, that love we were born with is replaced with guilt, anger, expectations, dissapointments and fear!

Eyes closed or eyes opened, love will carry the heaviest of burdens, and love will dance among the stars. We are all loved. We do not need to think it. We only need be open to the feeling of it.

  12. I agree that Love certainly is a universal force and this letter has touching elements in it, however, it irks me when someone writes something and claims it is written by a famous scientist to make it credible. To me, that lack of authenticity makes the true author seem arrogant and deceitful and ultimately UNDERMINES the whole message of Love. Anyone who has ever read anything that Einstein has written would know that he did not write this. I can’t imagine writing my opinion about something and thinking that it is so profound that I would sign Einstein’s name and post it on facebook. I agree that it contains some beautiful concepts. I read this because of the way it was advertised: “A Letter from Albert Einstein (NOT TRUE) to his daughter (NOT TRUE) about the Universal Force which is Love.” I think it is just sad that someone would have the audacity to write something (maybe that is plagiarized as well), and sign a famous person’s name to it ti elicit attention. This is similar to the posts on FB today of Melania Trump plagiarizing Michelle Obama’s speech. Melania could very well believe the words she said, but the fact that they were stolen from and utilized by another person years earlier makes one question the character of the plagiaraizer.

    • Dear Xuan Tran: I translate the daily messages from “the Creator” (given to us through Jennifer Farley- “the Creator Writings”). Yesterday’s message gave a good impression of how to deal best with negative emotions. Perhaps you can benefit from this info too!
      “My beautiful light, I have a gentle reminder for you; expressing a negative emotion changes that emotion. If you express fear, it changes fear. If you express sadness, it changes sadness. If you express anger, it changes anger. The issue is not in the expressing, dear one, but in the “holding” of the emotion. If it is expressed, it can be changed! ~ Creator”
      So, you do not have to suppress negative feelings, which many people think, in order not to cause karma upon oneself. Instead, you can express them (to a good friend or relative, or even to the causer of the feeling). In this way they cannot harm your health, and you can go on without frustration or whatever negative feeling. Or at least with an ‘altered’ feeling that does not harm you anymore.
