We are all part of a greater whole

Sign-RealityCheckSeeing ourselves in a light different than the mainstream is not uncommon. In fact, it’s been practiced by many wise souls for a long time.

Take this statement:

“A human being is part of the whole called by us universe. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate 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 to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

“The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.”

– Albert Einstein
So the next time you start feeling pretty full of yourself, think again. You’ve got a bit more work to do before you know your place within the whole.
