Belief is a blessing, Einstein realised. This supreme blessing expedites man’s inward, onward and upward journey. Each individual believes in something in a unique way, and achieves something that is also unique. What is his achievement? A feeling of oneness.

On being asked if there is anything in which a person can believe, the supreme lover in Einstein offered this special message to the world at large: “I believe in the brotherhood of man, the uniqueness of the individual.” When asked to prove his belief, Einstein declared, “The mind can proceed only so far upon what it knows and can prove. There comes a point where the mind takes a leap — call it intuition or what you will — and comes out upon a higher plane of knowledge, but never can prove how it got there. All great discoveries have involved such a leap.”
