I want to welcome KAMU-TV, and all their viewers in Waco, Texas to the Between the Lines family. KAMU is on the campus of Texas A&M and hope all you Aggies enjoy the show.
This week get up close to the mind of Albert Einstein when Walter Isaacson and I discuss his book Einstein-His Life and Universe. The episode airs on most of my stations so just click on the link above to see where and when in your market. If it’s not airing this week it will over the next few.
The impact of Einstein’s theories have a profound effect on virtually every form of technology we use today. He also had a deep reverence for the harmony and beauty expressed in the creation of the universe and its laws, but with all his depth and wisdom, he too faced difficult issues we all can relate to.
For all those struggling, especially in today’s economy, find solace that it took Einstein FOUR years, after he published his great theories, to land his first job as a low-level clerk at the Swiss Patent Office. In fact, as hard as it is to believe, it took him NINE more years after he graduated college to get his first job as a teacher.
It is well documented that this caused him tremendous frustration, as it would all of us, but he knew something that provided a bedrock for him to continue on.
The most beautiful emotion we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of all true art and science.
We often rebel against the mysterious things that happen to us. Why did I lose my job? Why are my efforts to succeed taking so long? Why can’t I find my soul mate? Why can’t I finish my assignment? Why can’t I lose just 10 measly pounds?
What if like Einstein we relished in these mysteries of the universe? Okay, so it may not be E=MC2 but on a personal level it can be the fundamental emotion that drives us forward rather than holds us back.
