Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.

From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: that we are here for the sake of each other. Many times a day I realize how much my own outer and inner life is built upon the labors of my fellow men, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.

Do not grow old, no matter how long you live. Never cease to stand like curious children before the Great Mystery into which we were born.

A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘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.

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

Doesn’t it seem so much easier to run from your problems? It does SEEM that way sometimes but it really turns out to be so much worse. When we actually face and push through our problems, we grow, and we don’t have to come back and confront them later. It’s actually a lot easier to face our problems now.
