la boheme..



"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the 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 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 us.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison
by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature in its beauty."
~Albert Einstein

nemo:
isnt that what the shema is about. all is One. its a matter of perspective - not time. you can live in reality where you realize its all One, or you can live in an illusion and keep believing you're seperate from it all.

dovid:
