“The human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘The Universe’, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling, as something seperate from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison… 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. Nobody’s able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of a liberation and a foundation for inner security.”
Albert Einstein
