Seeing Through the Illusion of Thingness

Einstein on Selflessness



“The fact that man produces a concept “I” besides the totality of his mental and emotional experiences or perceptions does not prove that there must be any specific existence behind such a concept. We are succumbing to illusions produced by our self-created language, without reaching a better understanding of anything.”    Einstein

Pretty good, huh?

    Oh this quote is so beautiful, it instantly threw me in a net of not knowing nothing and hung me (i.e. elusive me) there not letting me latch on to anything. Nothing means nothing, period. Though hard to continue to stay there.
