The illusion of separation

This might sound like a strange, or even insensitive statement in the current climate, but one risk of the current pandemic is that it reinforces the idea that we are separate from one another – a perception that #einstein referred to as ‘the optical illusion of consciousness.’ @noahlevine108 refers to the Tibetan idea that everyone has been our mother in a previous life. While this idea might seem extraordinary to some, if we can appreciate at a conceptual level, it makes it difficult to see any of our fellow humans as ‘other’.
