L’cheim

“It’s madness to hate all roses because you got scratched with one thorn.

It’s madness to give up all dreams because one of them didn’t come true.

It’s madness to give up all attempts because one of them failed.

It’s folly to condemn all your friends because one has betrayed you.

It’s folly to no longer believe in love just because someone was unfaithful or didn’t love you back.

It’s folly to throw away all your chances to be happy because something went wrong.

There will always be another opportunity, another friend, another love, a new strength.

For every end, there is always a new beginning…

And now here is my secret, a very simple secret:

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly.

Because what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

–Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Is meekness strength?

Is meekness strength?

Is meekness and the quality of humility, as exemplified by Jesus of Nazareth, whom all Christians understand as the Son of God who empties himself of his heavenly power to become a human for the salvation of the world — ultimately his greatest STRENGTH ?

It just might be because in this instance of Christian glory, beyond his divine strength, as a human — Jesus is strong in word and deed. He works as a carpenter, a healer, a rabbi, a teacher, a church builder and a rebellious leader of the nation of faithful that challenges the concurrent religious leaders who do not live according to their own laws.

Such strength is bridled with gentle compassion.

Overturning social conventions, Jesus restores dignity to people on the edges, such as women, children, the sick, and sinners.

He touches the untouchable and welcomes outcasts. He teaches his followers to do the same, and to love not only each other but even their enemies because all people are beloved of God.

Everything Jesus does is in service to God the Father and others, even to the very end. Threatened by his teachings and their reception, religious leaders conspire to put him to death.

“Behold the man!” Pontius Pilate says, presenting before the crowd the King of the Jews , crowned humiliatingly with thorns and wearing a purple robe. They respond, “Crucify him! Crucify him!”

But even this, Christians believe, is a part of Jesus’ plan; he knows that only by voluntarily offering his life can he conquer sin and death, rising from the dead three days later and rescuing captives from hell along the way.

His victory comes through self-sacrifice – Jesus conquers evil through the cross, which an ancient Christian hymn calls “the weapon of peace.”

Jesus, “God made man,” encouraging men to emulate Jesus’ “manly virtues” of compassion, humility, and purpose is a good tiding for all of us to become Servant Leaders…

It is the Son of God humbling himself to save us, men practicing meekness relate to others not from a position of superiority or domination but of equality and generosity. 

In other words, the fierce hunter-warrior becomes a loving father; his power combines with the aforementioned virtues of compassion, humility, and purpose. I believe that this strength expressed in gentle love – which I understand as meekness – displays a healthy model of masculinity.

But again, what makes such meekness masculine? Indeed, women too can be strong, and they are; thus, they can also express their strength in love.

However, historically, most men have inherited status and privilege that women have not, and on average, men are understood to possess greater physical strength than women.

Thus, men often have the unique choice between either abusing such power (resulting in toxic masculinity) or channeling it for the good of others (resulting in healthy masculinity) like the Son of God did when he was humbling himself to save us — strong leading men practicing meekness, relate to others not from a position of superiority or domination, but of equality and generosity.

Because such meekness involves voluntarily laying aside the privilege and pride that can come with manhood, cultivating the virtue may be more challenging for men than women. At the same time, contemporary Western society tends to prize strength while overlooking gentleness, regardless of gender. The call to meekness is not for men alone. When Jesus taught “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth,” he was speaking to men and women, both of whom must use their strength, in whatever form they have it, to conquer only evil and not other people; to bless and embolden others, not to diminish them.

Rather than abolishing power, Jesus teaches how to wield it rightly by being the Servant Leader as when he washed the feet of the Apostles…

“You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them.

Not so with you.

Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave – just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

This is the way, for all who seek the kingdom of God, because Jesus triumphs over evil and saves the world through meekness. Jesus is the ultimate hero from whom men can learn how to be men as God intends, using their power in loving service.

Albert Einstein spoke these words against Apartheid and in favor of Civil Rights, in May 11, 1946.

“There is separation of coloured people from white people in the United States. That separation is not a disease of coloured people. It is a disease of white people. I do not intend to be quiet about it.”

1946 was a rather long time before it became accepted to be Fair and Human as a Person, as a Scientist and as a simple Human Being.

Here is some background about Albert Einstein’s early life and studies as well as a snippet about his later work and achievements.

Einstein taught us that it is okay to have special interests, because when he was nine – he went to high school.

There, he spent only 3–4 hours a week studying math and science.He was an odd kid, and eventually, he was asked to leave high school and he did it.

His home was the only place where he could pursue his interests. Later in life, his special interests led him to win the Nobel Prize and become one of the most famous theoretical physicists in the world.

Expose your child to a wide variety of activities and encourage them once they find something they love. Quirky hobbies can be particularly helpful for kids who don’t exactly fit in at school, because the very fact they are specially good or even gifted at something they like to engage with — will surely affect their confidence positively.

The key here is Imagination because that is the answer to enlarging one’s horizons… 

Albert Einstein was the biggest advocate of imagination and creativity.

He said, “Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.” Children have a particularly vivid imagination. Let them use it. Help them fantasize. Encourage them to visualize they’ll be doing something important or fulfilling when they grow up.

Their dreams might seem unrealistic at the moment, but don’t lower their expectations. It is important they are thinking about their goals.

Persistence needs to be encouraged, because when he was just a child, Albert Einstein was considered dyslexic and a slow learner.

As a matter of fact — many adults around him, including teachers, all thought that he was stupid.

Later on, he had problems in school that kept him back and caused him to lose and have to repeat a whole year…

Then, he failed in his first attempt to enroll into Zurich Polytechnic University.

Well before the Second World War — he was targeted by the German Nazis with assassination.

As you can see, obstacles and challenges were all around him.

However, he persisted and achieved his goals.

We all have come and will come across many setbacks in our lives as well.

Yet, that too shall pass…

Diversity is key, love all others even the haters is a gift to yourself, optimism and imagination are potent weapons, perseverance and autonomy are highly valued, and self confidence is a path to a long & happy life.

Yours,

Dr Churchill

Love is the Universal Mind…

“The total number of minds in the Universe is one. In fact, consciousness is a singularity phasing within all beings. This life of yours which you are living is not merely a piece of the entire existence, but is in a certain sense the whole.”

–Erwin Schrödinger.

“All the Buddhas and all sentient beings are nothing but the One Mind. It is like a boundless void which can’t be fathomed or measured. It is only necessary to awake to the One Mind, and there is nothing whatsoever to attain. This is the real Buddha. This pure Mind, the source of everything, shines forever and on all with the brilliance of its own perfection. Above, below and around you, all is spontaneously existing, for there is nowhere which is outside the Buddha Mind.”

–Huang Po.

“I like to experience the Universe as one harmonious whole. Every cell has life. Matter, too, has life; it is energy solidified.”

–Albert Einstein.

“Love is the Universal Mind, the Soul and the Wisdom behind all living beings, systems and intelligence.”

–Dr Churchill

“Billions of years ago, you were a big bang.. you’re not something that’s a result of the big bang. You’re not something at the end of the process. You are still the process. You are the big bang, the original force of the universe, coming on as whoever you are. But we’ve learned to define ourselves as separate from it. And so a basic problem we’ve got to go through is to understand that there are no separate things, or separate events. If you can understand this you’re gonna have no further problems.”

Be Stoic because your life depends on it…

“Love is key…

And the Love of oneself is a Master Key.

A passepartout indeed.”

— Dr Churchill

“A good character is the only guarantee of everlasting, carefree happiness.”

–Seneca

Stoicism as described by Seneca, in his master work described Stoicism as the ideal operating system for anyone who wants to operate in high-stress environments.”

Seneca’s “Letters” is a masterpiece of classical literature, that offers a compelling and accessible introduction to Stoic ideas, because the Roman leader, senator and author Seneca uses these ideas in order to offer practical advice on a number of real-world problems, and his guidance remains as relevant today as at the time it was written.

And even whether you are a founder, a political activist, or a senior politician, or a corporate executive or an emerging artist, a highly prized athlete or a Mr mom, or a female home-maker — Seneca’s “Letters” give you the tools you need to overcome setbacks and maximize your potential.

In the last few years, I’ve had to explore the philosophical system of Stoicism because my Life has been rather harsh and unforgiving, and although my preferred Stoic writer, Lucius Seneca, has been dead for a couple of millennia — I have found overtime, his help to be as present today and as a simple and immensely practical for me and for my life, as a simple set of rules to follow for anyone who plays the game of Life well, even if we seek a simple life or if we need to achieve a measure of excellence, grace and glory.

And if anything else — our life is going to become a far better field of honor and mission, and through Stoicism, we achieve great results with far less effort expanded upon our daily life’s routines, habits and mechanical acts.

This happens mainly because Seneca and his Stoic lessons do not deal with complicated theories about the world, but with the simple aim of helping us overcome destructive emotions and simply helps us “act” upon what can be acted upon, just like an entrepreneurial founder considers that life is all built for action, and not for endless debates, or for a “paralysis by analysis” long term safe lifestyle.

And it is through Stoic actions and deeds that we ultimately learn that Stoicism is a practical philosophy, with the simple aim of living a meaningful life, and thus becoming one’s best self within a really short time in this life, because the Stoics believed in living a virtuous life, one with the potential to bring us personal happiness and fulfillment.

And that’s one of the reasons a person may choose to live after that simple and honorable fashion.

After all, what good is philosophy if it doesn’t ultimately bring us happiness?

But in Stoic philosophy, it’s the pursuit of virtue and good character that allows us to get there.

For the Stoic, the pursuit of virtue is the pursuit of happiness.

If we can live virtuously, a good life will follow.

But what does it mean to pursue virtue?

“Live the Love”–Dr Churchill

Live the Love, is a good start and this is what we understand through the means of Love self and also your love-sharing with the world.

Simply put, acting virtuously means striving towards one’s ideals and becoming the best version of oneself, because by becoming the person we want to be — we will live a fulfilled life and ultimately we shall be happy.

Yet the Stoic philosophers also teach us that happiness is our personal responsibility, since the first and most important thing they say that we ought do — is to take personal ownership of who we are, and at what state of our lives we are presently existing, because it is only then that we could become the people we want to be, and find fulfillment and happiness in our lives.

With that said, here are some Stoic principles that can help us become better, happier people.

Stop Worrying About What You Can’t Control

“There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.” –Epictetus

Despite his being born into slavery, the ancient Stoic philosopher Epictetus became one of the most influential thinkers of his time by writing his “Discourses” that are a collection of informal lectures given by the philosopher around AD 108 around Greece and Roman territories, as a gateway into the life and mind of a great practical and intelligent man of action that is not just a theoretical intellectual.

Because stoicism is built around the foundational idea that we can’t control the world around us, but we can control how we respond to it.  The Stoic reminds themselves that in life, there are things we have absolutely no control over, there are things we have partial control over, and there are things we have complete control over. The only way we can have peace in our lives is to accept this, let go of what we can’t control, and then focus on that which we fully control.

First thing is to consider what is that we don’t control?

We can’t control the world around us, external events, other people, nature, our genetics, or the past. To try to, or to worry about any of these things is pointless, and only makes life more difficult. It’s in our constant attempt to try to control these things that we end up suffering.

Suffering is our psychological resistance to what happens. Events may cause physical pain, but they do not in themselves create suffering. Resistance creates suffering.

The only problem in your life is your mind’s resistance to it as it unfolds.

Our unhappiness is, in large, caused by thinking that we control things we can’t. In a sense, this is like arguing with reality, and it’s at the root of many, if not most of our problems. So, first accepting that there are things we just don’t control is essential if we want to move forward with our lives.

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” – Serenity Prayer

Let us now focus on what we can control, because if we can’t control the world, external events, or other people, what is left for us to control?

“Some things are within our power, while others are not. Within our power are opinion, motivation, desire, aversion, and, in a word, whatever is of our own doing.” –Epictetus, “Enchiridion”

The Stoics argue that the only two things that we have absolute control over are our thoughts and actions. We can’t control the world around us, but we can control how we respond to it through our judgements and reactions. Inevitably, things will happen in life that we can’t control, but it’s our perceptions of events followed by how we respond to them that makes these things good or bad. 

“Where then do I look for good and evil? Not to uncontrollable externals, but within myself to the choices that are my own…” –Epictetus, “Discourses”

The most important practice for the Stoic is to differentiate between the two, and then to focus on what we can control: our judgements and our voluntary actions, and our choices. We cannot completely control what happens to us, but we can control how we perceive it, and how we choose to respond and react. That is where our power lies. 

“You have power over your mind-not outside events. Realize this and you will find strength.” –Marcus Aurelius, “Meditations.”

Nearly two thousand years after it was written, Meditations remains profoundly relevant for anyone seeking to lead a meaningful life, because only few ancient works have been as influential as “The Meditations” by Marcus Aurelius, philosopher and emperor of Rome (A.D. 161–180), because he gives us a series of spiritual exercises filled with wisdom, practical guidance, and profound understanding of human behavior. And thus it remains one of the greatest works of spiritual and ethical reflections ever written, or ever lived in the life of a man. A great man indeed, because Marcus Aureliu’s insights and advice on every subject rings totally true.

He speaks on point from the simple style of living well and good “in the world,” to coping with adversity and interacting with others and with self. Indeed his style of radical truth has made his book “The Meditations” required reading for statesmen and philosophers alike, while generations of ordinary readers have responded to the straightforward intimacy of his style. For anyone who struggles to reconcile the demands of leadership with a concern for personal integrity and spiritual well-being — Markus Aurelius’ book “The Meditations” remains as relevant today, as it was two thousand years ago.

Of course, understanding this is only a part of it.

What we must also do is remember it, because the more we remind ourselves of this, the less we will suffer from fear and anxiety, and the easier it will be for us to invest our energy and efforts into becoming the people we want to be. 

“The chief task in life is simply this: to identify and separate matters so that I can say clearly to myself which are externals not under my control, and which have to do with the choices I actually control.” –Epictetus, “Discourses”

Let us now think about death because that is what joins us to Life now and frees us up from the fear of death for today and tomorrow… 

“You could leave life right now. Let that determine what you do and say and think.” –Marcus Aurelius, “Meditations”

We all know we are going to die at some point, yet we live as if our lives will last forever. Thus, we waste a lot of time doing things that are unimportant and do us little to nothing to move us in the direction we want to go in. We waste time, and then we complain that we don’t have enough of it. All the while, death hangs over our shoulder with every second that goes by.

“It’s not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it.” –Seneca, “On the Shortness of Life.”

The reality is that life is just long enough to do what’s important to us. It’s short in that there is no time to waste. Our time on this earth is limited. Time is something we cannot get back. So, we mustn’t spend it on trivialities or the unnecessary. If we want to be happy, we must let the thought of death change our relationship with time. Let it teach us to be fully present, and to make the most of every moment. 

“This is our big mistake: to think we look forward to death. Most of death is already gone. Whatever time has passed is owned by death.” –Seneca, “Letters from a Stoic.”

The reality is that life is short if you waste time. Time is the one thing you can never get back. Therefore, you have to spend your time wisely. So, meditate on death. Let it clarify who you want to be. Then let it drive you to take the right actions, using every single moment to become the person you want to be.

The thought of death doesn’t need to scare us, nor does it need to depress us. Rather, it can motivate us. In fact, death is the strongest source of motivation there is. There is nothing quite as vitalizing as the idea that your life or the lives of your loved ones could end at any moment.  It creates a sense of urgency, and drives us to take action like nothing else. It motivates us to aggressively pursue what’s important, it fills us with purpose, and it also encourages us to act right. 

To be the people we want to be, we must meditate on our mortality, and we must do it often. Only through the knowledge that our lives will someday end, can we learn to truly live them.

We must be able to live with minimum needs and that is why happiness comes to us when we have far less needs and consequently want far less from the commercial lives of our world, and we stop wanting to keep up with the Joneses, or having TVs that create major inefficiencies and inequities of “want” in our life.

One of the most prominent lessons in Stoicism is learning to want less.

Because most people believe that happiness comes about through obtaining more of something, yet we believe that it’s in having more of things like success, money, fame, talent, time, or possessions, and once we achieve these things, we believe our problems will go away, and then we can finally be happy with our lives.

Yet, the issue is that it’s our incessant want of more that only makes our lives more difficult. We become slaves to our own desires. But the opposite is also true. The Stoics teach that we can free ourselves by simply wanting less. 

“Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.” –Epictetus, “The Golden Sayings of Epictetus.”

Living a good life doesn’t happen through attaining more things. In fact, even if we do get all the things what we want, it’s never enough. But also, the reality is that won’t get everything what want. If we attach our happiness to things we don’t have, the unhappier we will be. 

“It is impossible that happiness, and yearning for what is not present should ever be united.” –Epictetus, “Discourses.”

Instead, we can learn to want what we already have. Life has given you a lot, you just have to recognize it. This is not just a matter of being grateful, it’s about being pragmatic. Look at what you do have, and then put it to good use. You can’t control what you don’t have, but you can control what you do have. True wealth and power arise from your ability to make use of what’s in your possession. What gives it value is how you use it, not just in having it. 

“No person has the power to have everything they want, but it is in their power not to want what they don’t have, and to cheerfully put to good use what they do have.”  –Seneca, “Letters.”

If you go about expecting life to give you everything you want, you will be constantly disappointed and you will never find happiness. It’s far better to accept it as it is, recognize what you do have, and then make the most of it. 

Yes, it’s ok to want certain things such as the essentials for a comfortable, thriving life, and it’s also good to have dreams, aspirations, and goals. You should be striving to improve yourself, your circumstances, and to build a better life for you and your loved ones. These things are part of improving ourselves and our lives. The Stoics aren’t telling us to eliminate desire completely, rather they’re just encouraging us to want the right things, to practice appreciation of what we do have, and then to use them to our advantage. Everything we need we already have. 

“Cure your desire—don’t set your heart on so many things and you will get what you need.” –Epictetus, “Discourses.”

We must simply simply simplify our lives…

Because stoicism, at its core, is all about simplicity.

It’s about simplifying your life in every regard, and living essentially. 

“Straightforwardness and simplicity are in keeping with goodness. The things that are essential are acquired with little bother; it is the luxuries that call for toil and effort. “ –Seneca, “Letters.”

The Stoics teach that what’s essential to a good life is what we control: our character. Our ability to create happiness comes from this. We must first realize that all we truly need for happiness is ourselves. 

“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself.” –Marcus Aurelius, “Meditations.”

Yes, there are also basic necessities that we need, but most of us have completely cluttered our lives with things we don’t need. What we can do is cut everything unnecessary. Intrinsically, we think of first clearing material things, though it’s not just material things we have to cut, but also our thoughts and actions. 

“Since the vast majority of our words and actions are unnecessary, corralling them will create an abundance of leisure and tranquility. As a result, we shouldn’t forget at each moment to ask, is this one of the unnecessary things?” –Marcus Aurelius, “Meditations.”

We should constantly be mindful of whether our thoughts and actions are doing anything to move us forward or improve our lives.

What’s necessary, is only that which moves you forward and makes you better and happier.

Anything else is unnecessary.

So, to everything in your life, things, thoughts, and actions alike, constantly be questioning whether it’s necessary.

If it’s not, cut it out and never thin of it ever again… 

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

Indeed, there exist countless strategies across the spectrum of philosophy and self-improvement that can be used to create happiness in our lives.

Yet, although Stoicism doesn’t claim to have all the answers, nor can it tell you exactly how to be happy — it teaches us that we are personally responsible for our happiness, and it’s up to us to create happiness through our actions.

And since stoicism is a practical approach to living, one that doesn’t shy away from the reality that life is hard, and adversity is in its its very nature, and it helps us to know that instead of fighting this, running from it, or trying to achieve happiness as if it’s an end in of itself in which all our problems cease to exist — Stoicism teaches us to accept reality, embrace it, and make the most of it.

Indeed, stoicism teaches us to approach happiness as more of a process that parallels self-improvement and the pursuit of our higher selves, because it is only through this process that we can we take the necessary actions to become the people we want to be.

And ultimately — we are the ones that create the happiness we seek.

God Sight of Einstein…

God Sight of Einstein

For decades, physicists have been working with a theory called the “standard model” as a way to understand the mysteries of the universe.

But the standard model is incomplete. Just last month the discovery of a wobbling particle opened the door for new research and discovery and there are also other theories beyond the standard model.

Theoretical physicists believe there are four fundamental forces- strong nuclear force, the weak nuclear force, gravity and electromagnetism.

Let’s say that the simple rules of the game of Chess, represent Cybernetics or rather what the rules of the operations of the Universe look like…

Yet after more than two thousand years of Physics starting form the4 early Greek philosopher-physicist-scientists — we finally figured out how the pawns move, how the bishop moves, how the Queens play etc.

And then I suppose one day we’ll figure out that we might have the “God equation” and that will surely tell us how the whole chess board moves and then we might be able to become “Grand Masters” of the game ourselves…

Because then and only then — we then might be able to apply this “God Equation” because it will help us to answer some of the deepest unsolved questions in relativity:

Starting for example, with this one: “Is time travel possible?”

Einstein’s theory says yes — but do we truly know that this is really true?

We don’t know what happened before the Big Bang, or before Creation itself.

We certainly do not know, what lies on the other side of a black hole?

We do not know very much today, because all these questions cannot be solved with the present understanding of physics, and that is what the search for the “God Equation” is all about.

And so when Albert Einstein died — he had been working on what he termed “The God Equation” and that was the greatest search of his life…

It was Einstein’s “Holly Grail Search” because he wanted to discover a mathematical physics equation, that was no more than one inch long, and that would allow him to “Read the ind of God” as he often times had said… 

So when the great physicist died — some of the newspapers published a picture of his desk with an open book full of blanc pages…

And the caption said: “This is the unfinished manuscript of the greatest scientists of our time.”

Yet, Einstein in his own words had a lot to say about his search for the Divine.

Here are his words:

“From the age of twelve I began to suspect authority and distrust teachers.

I learned mostly at home, first from my uncle and then from a student who came to eat with us once a week.

He would give me books on physics and astronomy.

The more I read, the more puzzled I was by the order of the universe and the disorder of the human mind, by the scientists who didn’t agree on the how, the when, or the why of the “Creation.”

Then one day this student brought me Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason.

Reading Kant, I began to suspect everything I was taught.

I no longer believed in the known God of the Bible, but rather in the mysterious God expressed in nature.

The basic laws of the Universe are simple, but because our senses are limited, we can’t grasp them.

There is a pattern in creation.

If we look at this tree outside whose roots search beneath the pavement for water, or a flower which sends its sweet smell to the pollinating bees, or even our own selves and the inner forces that drive us to act, we can see that we all dance to a mysterious tune, and the piper who plays this melody from an inscrutable distance — whatever name we give him – Creative Force, or God, always escapes all book knowledge.

I like to experience the Universe as one harmonious whole. Every cell has life. Matter, too, has life; it is energy solidified…

The whole of Nature is life, and life, as I observe it, rejects a God resembling man.

Man has infinite dimensions and finds God in his conscience.

A cosmic religion, has no dogma other than teaching man that the Universe is rational and that his highest destiny is to ponder it and co-create with its laws.

The genuine scientist is not moved by praise or blame — nor does he preach.

He unveils the universe and people come eagerly, without being pushed, to behold a new revelation: the order, the harmony, the magnificence of creation!

If we want to improve the world we cannot do it with scientific knowledge but with ideals.

Confucius, Buddha, Jesus and Gandhi have done more for humanity than science has done.

We must begin with the heart of man — with his conscience, and the values of conscience can only be manifested by selfless service to mankind.

Religion and science go together.

As I’ve said before, science without religion is lame and religion without science is blind.

They are interdependent and have a common goal:

That goal is their search for truth.”

–Albert Einstein

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

Methinks that the God Equation is the mystical prayer, that silent noetic meditation that allows us to be one stature, the universe, nature, and all other sentient beings, as one and undivided part of Creation — fluttering in Love and in the Flow of Kindness as the mist that this Life force represents.

Because God is the God Equation and is not to be understood through Mathematics but rather is to be felt through the divine affliction that is called Agape.

God Bless you all…
