The Whole of Nature in its Beauty


Albert Einstein:

” A human being is part of a whole, called by us the 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 consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest 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.”

I had the pleasure of attending a talk at Northwestern University last night, given by Richie Davidson. It was like a rock concert for happiness, meditation, and psychology geeks. So fascinating. More on this later. But right now, just want to share this quote from Albert Einstein, which Dr. Davidson used to end the evening.IMG_6549
