Infinitude of God

When real humility dawns in our heart through the realisation of Infinitude of God, we realise our relationship with that Infinitude and our finite nature falls into insignificance. Our dependence on material things, our egotism, our self importance dwindle into nothingness and we taste true happiness.

My spiritual journey began long long back, when I was still a student, with my love for the sky and the stars ..

Those days we didnโ€™t have calculators and computers, and I used to calculate with my own hands what a Light Year was (365 days multiplied by 24 hours, multiplied by 60 minutes, multiplied by 60 seconds and this big number multiplied by the speed of light) … was a huge figure……and there are stars which are millions of light years afar….And then I saw the bigness of our solar system. And it was so humbling to know that our solar system is just a dot in an insignificant corner of the Milky Way Galaxy and that there are stars much much bigger than our sun. If the whole of the solar system got sucked into a black hole, it won’t make any difference...It is impossible to visualise the bigness of even one galaxy and there are billions of galaxies. Maybe trillions…

This humongous size of the universe itself was so humbling and left me in a daze for months. But I was completely bowled when I learned that the Universe is ever expanding. My question was what is it expanding into? What was there before ? Nobody could give me any answer. I got my answer in my own way some years back and shall talk about it one of these days.

Thereโ€™s no way our minds can comprehend this infinitude. We are clueless about life and death. We are clueless about where we come from and where we go. Why we come and why we go.

Surrender …bow down in humility … if you would know this Immensity, this Infinitude….

May the light of Thy Love….

There is no God ..

  1. In humility, we acknowledge our finite knowledge of the infinite. I am always in awe of how big the universe is and yet I am grateful that somewhere in this huge space, I stand to give glory to the One who create it.

  2. God is amazing! The universe is proof. And itโ€™s on a glimpse of His majesty. Iโ€™m in awe! Great post โ˜€๏ธ ๐ŸŒ™

  3. Our creator is definitely an awesome God. His creation is infinite as I sit here as one person of billions in this planet, as one planet in our solar system, as one tiny speck in the galaxy, and nearly invisible in the immense universe.

  4. The best description I have heard regarding what it means by the universe is expanding is: Think of it as though the galaxies are moving further apart from each other. At least I could conceptualise that. The universe is everything so it’s not expanding into anything. Rather it is being stretched. I agree it’s almost infinitely humbling trying to process how big the universe is and how little we are in it.

  5. Thank you so much for your kind words Subbashini. One of these days I shall write about what I think of the universe and the reality.

  6. Great post Uncle… overwhelmed with the infinitude of God…realized the insignificance of apparently big things of this show…surrender… humility… ur blog successfully gave the understanding of the topic…๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  7. Very True… Loved it at the end
    “Thereโ€™s no way our minds can comprehend this infinitude. We are clueless about life and death. We are clueless about where we come from and where we go. Why we come and why we go.” Agree!

  8. Beautiful words. Each line is so well written Ashokji๐Ÿ‘Œ. I was the one who always believed in science and nothing else made sense to me. I just feel happy that i am now able to understand and relate to what you are saying in this post. We definitely are clueless about lot of things. Keep shining your light of wisdom on us.

  9. “There is no God”… But there exists some super natural power that manages the whole show. Call it God, call it nature , or call it by any other name . People call it by the name of God / Lord / Almighty / Allah or what ever satisfies their inner conscious.

  10. I have no words to describe the magnanimity of the Creator. I can only feel. Your first experience of spirituality was mine too, and it still fascinates me to no end. Lovely post, thanks. God bless you.
