A New Manner Of Thinking

A human being is part of the whole called the universe. 

We experience ourselves as something separate from the rest

An optical delusion of consciousness:

A prison, restricting to us our personal desires and affections for persons nearest to us. 

Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature. 

The true value of a human being is determined by the measure 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 wrote that. Having watched a biography, I think he mussed his private life up more than somewhat, but having a brain that can fill the cosmos and draw it down, must have it's drawbacks.

Read  the above as a spiritual exercise. It doesn't need commentary, just space. Time, and space... Oh! Wait! It's a sign....
