The Universe

A human being is part of a whole, called by us the “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness, This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

—Albert Einstein

  1. There is but one universal spirit that all of us are part of, one pulse, one the light of that, our worries, wars and self-absorbtions are frivolous and unfortunate.
    Thank you, Dennis, for sharing this.

  2. The things Albert Einstein used to say just makes me feel like he was intended for a different generation. He was too wise and smart.
