Can we really be infinite?
There is a distinction between the consciousness of our senses, and the consciousness that we are – beyond our senses, not limited to our body, and with the potential to exist forever.
Can we really be infinite? And if so – what does it mean to us, and how would the awareness of it affect our lives?
Would we still have the same priorities? How would we live, knowing that our life is an Illusion and that it doesn’t really exist? Would we still enjoy it?
I’d say: why not? Illusion or not, our life is worth enjoying, no matter what. After all, we know ourselves through the experiences of our life.
Your life is precious. From all the infinite possibilities of how you can experience yourself as the consciousness that you are – you chose to be here and now, in this life. In this finite moment.
Science has been preoccupied with the idea of infinity for at least the last century. You can therefore find numerous scientific articles and books on the topics of intelligence existing prior to matter, various theories about the structure of the universe, parallel universes, space and time, consciousness, and what happens after death.
However, the idea of infinity existed in the human mind even before modern science began to research the origins of the universe and consciousness.
While science talks about everything being a part of one huge Energy field, many belief systems talk about God being all there is, and containing everything within:
– Some schools of Buddhist philosophy argue for an infinitely continuing (forward and reverse) state of existence, with no center, nor any permanent entity underpinning it.
– Hindu cosmology is non-dualistic. Everything that is, is Brahman. Brahman is the eternal Now, and in eternity there is no before or after, for everything is everywhere, always.
– In Islam, there are references in the Qur’an that attribute Infinity to God. Just as the biggest number cannot be comprehensible, then, in the same way, God can’t be described in human terms or encompassed in just a simple word.
– Judaism believes in one God, who is eternal. God is beyond even the concept of beyond.
– Christian religion believes in an eternal God expressed in the Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
No matter whether it is science or a belief system that resonates the most with our own inner truth, some things remain the same:
We are all part of One Whole. And we are all connected.
Each of us, being a “Spark” of the One Whole (one consciousness), experiences oneself as an individual – but at the same time is able to tune into the wisdom of the One Whole.
On the level of consciousness beyond the senses, we have access to every single bit of information that exists.
Whether that information originated in what we perceive as past, present or future – it does not matter.
In the field of the One Whole, time does not bind us, because on that level all is timeless.
Of course, in order to be able to tune into the information that is available to us on that level, we need to expand our individual consciousness and learn how to be able to access such knowledge.
Can we do that? Yes.
You can find tools, which help you release the negative blocks from your subconscious (the best are guided meditations, daily affirmations and audio recordings containing positive subliminal messages). You can find appropriate guidance once you decide on the next step.
We are here to have a beautiful experience of ourselves, so that we can grow to the fullest possible potential in this lifetime.
Although there are no guarantees we will wake up tomorrow – as the consciousness that we are, we do have a choice to either persist or perish.
We have always had that choice. And – for the most part – we have evolved. Don’t let yourself be fooled by what you see in the world: suffering, injustice, egoism, cruelty and so on.
Everyone has a choice to be a part of the Evolution, or not. All of us have a free will that decides whether we want to expand our consciousness, or not.
We have always had that choice, and we cannot deny anyone that choice. We can wish for some to make a different choice, but we cannot force our own truth on anyone.
Each of us is entitled to our own experience. Each of us is perfect and loved, no matter what choices we make.
There are no limits to the consciousness that you are – other than those you choose to impose on yourself.
There are no limits to who and how you can be.
Your life is not an accident or a mistake. Your life has a purpose.
