A Human Being is a part of the whole called by us Universe

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling 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

We Fall Down

We fall down and down, until we touch the ground, until we relate with the basic sanity of the earth.

We become the lowest of the low, the smallest of the small, a grain of sand, perfectly simple, no exceptions….

If you are a grain of sand, the rest of the universe, all the space. all the room is yours, because you obstruct nothing, overcrowd nothing, possess nothing.

There is tremendous openness.

You are the emperor of the universe because you are a grain of sand.

Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche
