My only point of reference is Infinity. Infinity and my relationship to it immerses everything I am and do in everyday life. This is not some attitude
I learned in books or from teachers but one I have cultivated for myself.
Infinity is a vast and endless expanse where up-down, left-right, small-big, me-other, important-unimportant, past-future are hilariously artificial
and relative concepts.
When something appears to be a "problem" in my day to day life, I contrast it with Infinity. Put into that perspective my "personal issues" are
nothing but a tiny dot of insignificance and I move on with great relief.
Infinity is an outrageous abundance, prosperity and beauty beside which all earthly importances, gains and pains pale.
Infinity is all that was, is and ever will be. It is both everything and nothing. Everything within Infinity always changes. Infinity is the only
thing that never changes, it just IS.
Infinity cannot be depicted as linear. A better depiction is a circle...or the Infinity-Symbol shown above...or many expanding concentric circles.
Infinity is not just some mathematical or spiritual concept to me, it is my guide in daily life. It teaches me to be humble. It teaches me that
contained within it, is a creative force that has produced and taken care of more than we can imagine. It teaches me that within the vast expanse
everything is possible. It teaches me that in order to expand I am to stop focusing on that tiny dot within the circle and become aware of more. It
teaches me that anything I can imagine has some form of existence somewhere within Infinity.
It teaches me that every grain of sand contains Infinity and that, for another perspective, an entire Universe has the size of a grain of sand. It
teaches me that when I have a problem with one little thing, in that moment in time, I have a problem with everything and if I have love for one
little thing, in that moment in time, I have love for everything.
It teaches me that there are Trillions of things I could be doing today, trillions of paths I could be taking today, trillions of things I could be
seeing, thinking, hearing. I am an aspect of Infinity. A viewpoint of Infinity. In this way I am connected to all-that-is. And from all-that-is I will
choose wisely what to dedicate myself to.
What is your relationship to Infinity?
