Widen Your Circle

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.

  1. Every so often as I read your ‘thought for the day,’ I think, ‘Eddie penned this one.” Sometimes I am right, and sometimes I am wrong – like with this one!
    I love the concept, the wisdom, the glimpse into human nature and the reminder that we’re all part of the bigger picture, and each role is important.

    Thanks for nurturing us – and for coaxing out the best that we can be….

  2. … Yes, and understanding that any creature, no matter how far from our “small” initial circle is, has a precise purpose, just like us, and we all are there to contribute to the universal enlightement, this is a life-changing awakening…

  3. Wise words by Albert, I watched a video the other week about the charity Homeboys, the founder was giving a wonderful speech which was reiterating that we are ALL One,All connected.. How wise Albert’s words are, when you truly understand them..
    Love that your lizard is still hanging around Eddie..
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend.. Sending love and well wishes my friend ❤

kindness is always welcome
