The worst part of this Universal infinity concept is that as we grow up we lose the reality of infinity. Gregge Tiffen (The Journey Continues: Communication With the Living – February, 2010)
To infinity and beyond! Buzz Lightyear (Toy Story)
Shoveling snow this week brought me to reflect on infinity. Although there is a finite number of snowflakes, that number is so huge that it stretches my mind to think about it. I’m further stretched to consider that, like we humans each with our unique fingerprints and DNA, each snowflake has its own unique design.
Consider that, as in all of nature, the life essence of the snowflake is infinite. It has been and will always be. Forever. The snowflake changes form and loses its identity as a unique snowflake. Then, it is no longer part of a beautiful snow landscape. Perhaps it melted and is flowing into a stream that will carry it the ocean or to an underground aquifer. Or, maybe it evaporated and will return to earth as another form of moisture. That vastness and the cycles that reflect nature on our planet give me just a little glimpse of what infinity is.
The thing about infinity though is that, by definition, it can’t be defined. To define is to limit. And infinity has no limits. That’s hard to fathom in a world structured to limit and control.
It may seem unimportant to consider infinity, but in reflecting this week, I found myself drawn to that place within that is Universal infinity, a place of peace and of remembering that I am an infinite being blessed with infinite possibility. I had no beginning. I have no end. Simply, I AM.
And, so are we all.
Take that in for a moment. Let it land deeply in your cells. They know this truth. Savor it.
Then, file this recipe away for a time when you are stressed or feel stuck with no choices that seem good or right. Let it remind you that in this infinite Universe there is always another way. That is the reality of infinity.
