Focusing Out

"A human being is a part of the whole called by use 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 circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beautify." --Albert Einstein

We are much too individualistic! Happiness in its purest form is found in the gratification of things outside ourselves.
