So, if Einstein believes this, it must be true. Or rather, I’m hedging my bets that he’s more on the money than the way we’re ‘supposed’ to think and live today. However, it is quite annoying to come to realise that the life I/we have been living can be considered a ‘prison’. The Matrix indeed.
”A human being is a part of this 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 consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to apportion for a few people 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.
