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
According to the man who explained relativity, you are part of a greater whole. A human being. An individual piece of a bigger universe encapsulated in the stardust that is your body. Deluded into believing that you are separate, apart from the other pieces of the universe save the few nearest to us.
Our task is to free ourselves from this delusion. To relate not just to some, but all of the other pieces of the universe. To embrace them in a growing circle of compassion.
Just imagine - everyone who ever has lived or will live is connected by an invisible net of time and space.
Do You Want to Attract a Your Soul Mate?
In a world where irony prevails, the most important step in attracting the sorts of relationships you want is to heal your current relationship… with yourself.
The right mate, the best friendships, most cooperative work relationships must come to you when you are happy with yourself. That is when you are able to attract your soul mate.
But wait! What happened to being “part of a greater whole?”
Yes! You are! And being part of a greater whole means the whole is best served by you being freely and unapologetically you. Allow yourself to be who you trully are.
To draw into your life the relationships you want, start extending your circle of compassion toward yourself. Are you living your life, or the life others’ expect of you? Do you follow your impulses and desires, or worry about what they will think? When you are old, will you look back at your life and say “Wow…what a ride!”
As Shunryo Suzuki says: “you are perfect just as you are…and there is still room for improvement.”
You didn’t spend your time getting to know someone by looking for what was wrong. In the blush of a new love we are often smitten into blindness to our chosen one’s glaring blunders, or we might even tell ourselves they’re endearing. Until they make us crazy and we want to take that endearing habit into the back yard and stomp it into the ground. Or is that just me?
Instead of instinctively (and it is instinctive) finding the flaws and imperfections of your lover, friends, family, co-workers - oh, and you yourself, what would happen to your relationships if you started looking for… actively seeking and finding… good stuff? It’s there. Everybody has something positive.
Anybody can live in a glass-half-empty world. With a little practice, a glass-half-full world. If you’re thirsty though, how much more awesome is it just to drink?
