Into the Pink

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

  1. Precisely, we are all a part of the whole, and we need to break down the mirrors that surround us and repeat again and again that I know, when all the time what I think I know is a base reflection of a mote.
