Which is truly larger or smaller the grain of sand or earth's Sun? Both 'Infinite' in size divisible to infinity going both directions infinitely inwards and outwards without beginning or ending?
The Universe moves around us, we don't move around the Universe. Everything you see is an perception, as everything is energy, electrical signals and vibration's.
Because of the gross misunderstanding of almost all people concerning the lake of fire, I would like to draw your attention to three words found in the passage quoted above. "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which BURNS with FIRE and BRIMSTONE: which is the second death."
The word BURN means combustion, or to consume. To consume does not mean to annihilate, for there is no such thing as annihilation in the absolute sense. When fire consumes a log in your fireplace it does not destroy any of the elements within the log, it merely changes their form. Combustion is the process by which chemicals combine to form new chemicals.
For example: a tree might be cut down, sawed into fire wood, and burned. When the wood is burning the heat causes the chemicals of which the wood is composed to vaporize, mixing with the oxygen in the air to form new chemicals, including water and the gas carbon dioxide. So what was formerly a tree is no longer identified as the form of a tree, but the substance thereof is now simply CHANGED into a DIFFERENT FORM and exists in its new form within the atmosphere as water, carbon dioxide, etc.
Thus, to bum, means to CHANGE. Furthermore, it is interesting to note that fire does not burn down; it always burns up; it seeks the highest level. And all that it consumes "goes up in smoke," to exist in a new form in a higher dimension. Even if you take a pan of water and place it over a fire, before long the water will take on the property of the fire and will begin to go up in steam. To burn means to CHANGE, and the change is always UPWARD in its motion.
FIRE is the heat and light that you feel and see when something burns. It takes heat to start a fire, but once the fire is started it produces heat that keeps the process going. Thus, fire is really HEAT and LIGHT. In my study of the lake that burns with fire and brimstone I was very much helped and impressed by the understanding given by Charles Pridgeon and I would like to quote from his scholarly work on the subject of BRIMSTONE.
He says: "The Lake of Fire and Brimstone signifies a fire burning with brimstone; the word 'brimstone' or sulphur defines the character of the fire. The Greek word THEION translated 'brimstone' is exactly the same word THEION which means 'divine.' Sulphur was sacred to the deity among the ancient Greeks; and was used to fumigate, to purify, and to cleanse and consecrate to the deity; for this purpose they burned it in their incense. In Homer's Iliad (16:228), one is spoken of as purifying a goblet with fire and brimstone.
The verb derived from THEION is THEIOO, which means to hallow, to make divine, or to dedicate to a god (See Liddell and Scott Greek-English Lexicon, 1897 Edition). To any Greek, or any trained in the Greek language, a 'lake of fire and brimstone' would mean a 'lake of divine purification.' The idea of judgment need not be excluded. Divine purification and divine consecration are the plain meaning in ancient Greek. In the ordinary explanation, this fundamental meaning of the word is entirely left out, and nothing but eternal torment is associated with it" -end quote.

That is obviously what such a thing would translate to, and in essence would this not already be akin to the earth school, wouldn't tests and infinite chances to learn to overcome self and the world and turn weaknesses into strengths, shining forth Love in all its definitions: compassion, tolerance, kindness, patience, charity, service, done in humor, joy and cheerfulness as much as possible, be metaphorically that lake of sulphur already?
Thank you for that post, it turned around a negative into a more positive meaning, and that is one thing we ahould be trying to do, transform negatives thoughts, ideas, circumstances, and turn them around.edit on 2-11-2010 by Unity_99 because: (no reason given)
how could we "move" around the universe

That does not make sense. How can a false light/source hold wisedom and knowledge if it's not true.
Wisedom comes from TRUTH and knowledge that hold's TRUTH, cannot be both Good & Evil. They are completely two opposites of eachother. That's where the balance is held between the opposites.
If there is a 'infinite one'....Thee can come into 'being' as seemingly separate existences...to experience/move around within its 'own creation. You...as a part of this 'infinite one'....can be a unique expression that it is experiencing its own 'being' through you, like a avenue of 'view'.If everything of life IS a expression/part of this 'one infinite being' then it would be able to experience itself through every possible infinite avenue all at one time of its 'manifested' expression.
The infinite being can be 'origin of all that is'...the invisible one...beyond any 1 dimension and still of all dimensions.
Through such a process of cascading or braking up of....Divine Spirits, soul groups, ect....all the way down to 'individual existence' in a sharp focused experience (us) would emanate. Through us, the infinite one can observe its deep complex expression of itself through the deepest/lowest vibration of 'being'.
