„We assume that the future will be shaped by those people who have the ability to face unexpected new situations with resilience and mindfulness and to act accordingly. For this reason, we are looking for ways in which resilience and mindfulness can be conveyed easily and quickly, and how multipliers are empowered to spread resilience and mindfulness in their communities easily and quickly.“
A human being is a part of a whole, called ‚Universe‘ by us,
a part that is limited in time and space.
He experiences himself, experiences,
his thoughts and feelings
as something separated from the rest –
a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
This delusion is a form of prison for us,
restricting us to our personal proclivities
and to affection for a few persons close to us.
Our goal 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.
Nobody is able to achieve this completely,
but the striving for such achievement is
in itself a part of the liberation and
a foundation for inner security.
─ Albert Einstein, from Ideas and Opinions, New York 1954
