Intellect is Not God

We should take care not to make the intellect our God.

~ Albert Einstein

His greatest fear was that his inventions would be used to destroy mankind. He is often misquoted as being an atheist. He was not; he merely stated that what could not be proved could not be disproved….as related to believing in any God’s existence.

One mistake I made, was to think an advanced education and self knowledge would make me happier and free me of life’s pain. The reality is that education has given me more sense of self worth, more earning power, and it helped free me from single parent poverty for awhile. There is no harm in being educated. However, it is not the solution to happiness, security, or perfection. It is not God. Those things only come from my belief in something greater than myself.

Today’s Life Action Plan: Just for today, I will write a want ad for a higher power that describes any attributes that I can believe in. Now, I will hire Him or Her. 🙂
