“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
Human beings do two mistakes almost all the time : 1. They try to be immortal , knowing they all come with unknown expiry dates . 2. They choose the easiest ways to immortality !
I have seen people writing their names ( alone or with their love) on hills, walls , historical monuments, pre-historic stones , close to raw natural beauties , as if those signatures will carry their identity to the future!
During our morning walk , this weekend , I found this tree , standing alone , bearing all these scratch marks by people who scribbled on a silent life.
This tree will be there for long , carrying all the symbols that prove – how scary and weird we human beings are and how forgiving nature is!
