“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 (via whats-out-there)

To accept Life as it is this moment, not for what you want it to be. By releasing your expectations about how you want outer circumstances to be, you bring an inner acceptance to what appears and your state of peace remains unshakable regardless of how life appears. This is love without conditions. Experiencing your self as life unfolding, participating and being.”—Marcus Thomas (via remorphabeing)
