An Infinite Universe

There is something I don't understand. Does anyone else think about the Universe being infinite? How can something like this be? How can it go on forever?

Ponder that thought for a while. I think the reason you have not done that is because you can't wrap your mind around that. When you try, it scares you. It brings your limited view of self, a belief in a separate mind and body, to a place it can't understand. And that scares a mind or ego which views itself as limited. How can space, an area, extend without end? The answer is it can't. Look at the flip side. If it is not possible for something physically to never end, how can it be possible for it to end? What comes after the part where it ends? An infinite Universe does not exist in the way in which a limited mind can conceive of it. That is because space, and time, don't exist in the way in which you think. Neither are fixed, neither are linear. Nothing exists outside of thought, nothing outside of the one holy moment. A physical Universe, and all physical matter, is a creation of this illusory dream that the vast majority think is real. In thought and in the Now, which are our true nature, time and space become irrelevant and illusory concepts.
