Trying To Grasp Infinity

a: Trying to grasp infinity ~
b: a fish swallowing the oceans of the world

What: "Be ready to discard whatever existing notions you may have of the nature of God. It has been said that in order to find God, one must give up God; or even to "kill" God, meaning killing one's human, finite concept of what God is. Using your finite mind to try to grasp infinity is like asking a fish to swallow the oceans of the world. You're bound to find something you aren't 100 percent ready for. If you don't, you're not being honest with yourself in your search."
