Wisdom from Science

A human being is part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something apart 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

One thought on “Wisdom from Science

  1. I appreciate these inspriational quotes you are sharing with us. This one inparticular. It reminds me of the “Great Commandment” Love the Lord your God with all your heart soul, and mind (Mark 12:29-31) with the second being to love your neighbor as you love yourself.

    Between your quote and mine I realize they are relative to one…and only one.”action” LOVE.

    To embrace Love you must first and formost understand…it is a…”Verb” ( typically expresses action, state of existence,, or a relation between two things, and that (when inflected) may be inflected for tense, aspect, voice, mood, and to show agreement with their subject or object. )

    Everytime you love…the universe changes…as with forgiveness…a verb also, when implemented, change occurs.

    In conclusion, estasblishing that love is an “action” we must also know that choice is an action…therefore we must CHOOSE to LOVE and ACT (embrace) accordingly.

    Another point of view,
