“A human being is part of the whole, called by us “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experience himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion, of his consciousness. The 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

Many people feel that spirituality and science contradict each other, but nothing could be further from the truth; one of the greatest scientific minds of the Western world also happened to be a very spiritually enlightened man.
Today’s sciences of quantum physics and epigenetics continue to give us qualitative and quantifiable physical evidence of truths that have been inherent in spiritual teachings for millennia.
