Widening Our Circle

logo1-cosmic-scenes[1]Widening Our Circle

“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.”  — Albert Einstein

This week is the official beginning of the holiday season – I can’t think of a better way to begin than considering how to “widen our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

Peace.
