While Albert Einstein rejected a lot of religious beliefs, he did believe in a kind of spiritual nature in life, expressing 'Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind'. To be scientifically minded whilst recognising the soulful nature of life, is what it means to encompass all possibilities whilst questioning the source of all things.
How incredible, seeing that woman on television. I can imagine you were incredibly shocked when you saw her. I find sometimes it is the truly shocking moments, the incredible synchronicities, which wake us up to who we truly are. There can be so many subtle synchronicities, so subtle that we miss them, so thank goodness for the shocking ones which give us a heartfelt jolt. Can remember some years ago, having one of the worst nights of my life. In preparing for bed whilst sobbing almost uncontrollably, I recall having said out loud 'I can't do this anymore. If you're there, send me an angel'. I'm not a religious gal by the way, more into a general form of spirituality. I put my head on the pillow before reaching over to turn on the radio. The song that played was 'In the arms of the angels'. The timing was truly incredible. I believe, at times, we are meant to be shocked back to life, when feeling there is no life left in us.
I'm so sorry to hear of the woman who let you down. Incredibly disappointing. Perhaps she showed up in your life to remind you of how much you still wish to love. Perhaps she appeared in your life to prepare you for the woman to come. I hope she comes soon. With you being somewhat of an empath, I hope you feel her nature clearly, without question.
