Einstein dan Kesadaran Spiritualnya

A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited
in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as
something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of
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 the prison by widening our
circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of
nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by
the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from
the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if
humanity is to survive.
