Circle of Compassion

The beautiful Norwegian Highland cattle have been famous throughout history for their distinctive look….they thrive on rough forage and in cold, wet climates. I did get quite close to them & was, for a moment there, a little nervous about those long horns turning on me.
“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.”
