Albert Einstein left us many 'pearls of his wisdom' through out his amazing career.
In November 1972 he was quoted in the New York Post suggesting that man could do well by changing the way we look at things so that the things we look at may change when he said:
"A humane being is part of the whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space."
"He sees 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 affections for a few people nearest to us."
"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security."
Now seeing as Albert was one of the men with Oppenheimer who were responsible for splitting the atom which lead to nuclear bombs we should take on board his advice today as wise Counsel one would imagine.
One really does wonder if the recently instated Commissioner of New South Wales police who said he gets angry at Australian larrikanism,(Chasers) whilst the world laughs is the right man to be heading up the security forces when we so desperately need love, tolerance, compassion, intelligence and understanding in to days society which is being forced into nuclear energy on a gross scale whilst such men as this good Christian Commissioner we are told throws "tanties." of anger. It is so easy to see why violence may erupt when one's ego causes such disassociation of the commissioner's mind so readily when peace, humour and levity are exercised to demonstrate the concentration of toxicity in the minds of men of force.
That's all folks once more we send out our love and blessings for the safety of all during these very volatile days of the Australian APEC conference in Sydney,
