Reflections…

A human being is part of the 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.

Albert Einstein
