Hmm, so while it is said that all things must begin with the end in mind, you're saying that the beginning of everything began with endlessness in
mind, so that the continuation of Godself-conscious-awareness may continue to explore every facet of itself, unto infinity..?
But if something has no end, then neighther can it have any beginning, and therefore, since we are here now, we are emersed, as an integral part,
every part of us, and all parts are there (although some may be disowned or locked up down in the basement of our conscious/unconsciousness), of
something aka life-existence, which is by it's very nature and intentionality, infinite, and so at the most fundamental level then, we always were,
always will be, and are eternally now, in this eternally unfolding present moment, right here now, the end of time..
That is "omegapoint", the end of the end of all beginnings, and the beginning of a new one, forever - the realization of that truth, in the present
moment of now aka entrypoint into the kingdom of heaven, or the realm or domain, of eternal life, realized, actualized, and the birth of
God-consciousness also, which we are just beginning to grasp/accept, as some sort of endlessly recurrent and self-referencial transcendent awareness,
and one which has reached the end of it's seeking ie: the non-seeking, non-grasping, non-effortful Buddha-mind/Christ-mind aka the Big Mind, and have
entered into the experience and the knowing of simple beingness, with absolute compassion for one and all.
From what you just said, perhaps the Landmark Forum people are correct to say that "Life is empty and meaningless - and it's empty and meaningless
that it's empty and meaningless"
in other words, that the greatest gift of creation, is the freedom to assign whatever meaning we like as we go, or, to avoid distinction,
differentiation and therefore separation, assigning it no meaning at all! (Zen Buddhism)
Right View - Buddha (second of the four noble truths)
= No View.
It is best to be open to everything, and closed to nothing, since it is entirely in the realm of conceivable, that we contain it all and are in truth,
everything as part of everything, in the sense that a drop of water taken from an endless sea, is not separate from the sea.
Language therefore, may be both man's greatest tool, and his greatest curse.. like a knife which cuts us and everyone else and the world around us,
into pieces, and therefore separation - but that said, what is differentiated, is again, reintegrated at a higher level - this may be considered imho,
the "logos" or "the word" of all creation - a continual process of differentiation and reintegration, at this stage in the game of evolutionary
growth, involving none other than the next phase in the evolution of our conscious awareness, from individual and separate, to whole, and God-like,
rejecting nothing, and rendering love and compassion as the highest healing principal.
