A Human Being is a Part of the Whole Universe…

“A human being is a part of the whole universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a prison, 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 by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

— Albert Einstein

To See the World in a Grain of Sand…

To see the world in a grain of sand

And to see Heaven in a wild flower

Hold infinity in the palm of your hands

And eternity in an hour.

– William Blake
Mae Jan Peng (Full Moon) - one of the oldest elephants at Elephant Nature Park. A hole was made in her ear in her harder days previous to her retiring at the Park. Her mahout now puts a fresh flower in it every day to make her feel more beautiful.
