Ripples in the fabric of space-time itself. A distant thing and no-thing within the Kosmos. Energy and matter caught in its gravitational pull, rotating and falling into the abyss never to be seen again (as far as we know). In the center, the absence of light, beyond its own event horizon. Returning the manifest to the fertile void; a singularity where the laws of our world do not apply. The definition of infinity and nothingness. Where time and space do not exist. This is not a spiritual message, sent to us by sages and prophets, but advanced theories reported in peer-reviewed journals by scientific materialists.

How interesting that all paths lead us to the ineffable, even those discovered by science. That which cannot be adequately described with words. Where words lose their meaning. Before words.

And do you believe that you can find this place? Forget belief -- can you actually find it? It is available to us all. It is our Authentic Self -- the Ground of All Being -- God, if you like. Where we are all one, forever. Timeless, spaceless, wordless. The definition of infinity. Neverland. Foreverland.

Nice photo-play!
I agree. Forget belief. Mental contortions, denials, suppressions, imaginations, and for what purpose?

Pat, yes, I do wonder about that often -- what would it take for the masses to "forget belief", and to decide they were empowered to experience the Divine directly. It would take much courage.

For all that we sometimes lament our "individuality" in this country, it certainly does give us license to pursue our own drummers -- I wonder if it is that much harder elsewhere.

Thanks for the visit.
