Einstein’s delusion

“A human being is a part of a whole, called by us ‘universe’, a part limited in time and space.

He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated 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 to us.

Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” Einstein

of course that task one day is easily accomplished by submitting to whichever death comes our way. in the meantime moments of compassionate awareness on a human, earth bound scale will suffice and procure a less chilling enjoyment. all living creatures. yes. but there is compassion also through our specified affections. the singular touch. the loving appreciation to the detail of a restricted vision creates the sought after connection,proves to be a gate, alas, mostly without awareness.

I am looking forward to reading your comments!
