We Are The Universe

“The sense of “I” & the illusion of its separateness from the rest of the universe is so pervasive & so deeply rooted in the infrastructure of our language, our institutions, & our cultural conventions that we find ourselves unable to “experience selfhood except as something superficial in the scheme of the universe.” The antidote lies in recognizing not merely that we belong to & with the rest of universe, but that there is no “rest” in the first place — we are the universe.” Alan Watts
