Widening Our Circle of Compassion

While this blog is not political in nature, I cannot in good conscience ignore current events in the United States.  As each of us looks individually for answers to the problems faced by all of us as a nation, please consider the words of this great man:

“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.”
