Limitations? I Think Not.

Not that I don't think, but try this quote from the Hua Hu Ching:
"Kind Prince, what do you think? Can the space of the four directions, as well as above and below, which consitute the profound vastness of the universe, be measured by the mind?"

"No, Venerable teacher."

"Kind Prince, the mind is just as immeasurable as the vast universe..."

I agree with this statement. (Circle gets the square!)

We limit our minds to think that we have these imagined limitations. To think that we can not ponder god is silly. Our imaginations can take our mind anywhere. We know of a fourth dimension of hyperspace, yet we live in the third dimension. How is such a thing possible when we can not see it or ever exist in it? Because our mind can conceive it. Our minds are wonderous tools that very few use. Religious people are the greatest of wasters of their mind for they waste their life trying to put meaning into their religion when they could be putting meaning into their life. So sad. Glad I'm not part of that.
