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

I love this quote
it speaks deeply
to my experience
of being alone
being separate…
and awakening again
to being connected
like a drop of dew
on a web
as nature connects me
beyond the illusion
to what is real…
compassion, appreciation and gratitude
always leads me back
to the source
which is always
love…xx

Photography has been my passion and poetry/verse has been an evolution of expression. My inspiration and appreciation comes from connecting to the beauty of Nature which I feel is truly an expression of the Divine. In the best sense ~ there is no true divide ~ just seemingly endless possibilities in forms of expression & representation…

    Einstein says:

    “….to embrace all living creatures
    and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

    And you say it the best cause both are connected……

    “as nature connects me beyond to the illusion to what is real…
    compassion, appreciation and gratitude always leads me back
    to the source which is always love.”

    Ahhh …. so very true!

    Love this and there is ample humility in the composition with superb light that accentuates the delicate lines so well.

    A fav. fer sure….

    Ah my dearest Linda – you are so rare a being, so incredibly rich and wise with that inner vision. So few know this reality as intuitively as you do and fewer still can share that knowing with such grace and such perfection. You are – and this is – so sublimely lovely.
