Infinity is defined as "the quality of being infinite, unlimited extent of time, space, or quantity, boundlessness; an indefinitely great number or amount; the limit of the value of a function or variable when it tends to become numerically larger than any preassigned finite number, a part of a geometric magnitude that lies beyond any part whose distance from a given reference position is finite; a transfinite number (as aleph‑null); a distance so great that the rays of light from a point source at that distance may be regarded as parallel."

Synonyms for infinity include eternity, everlasting, and perpetuity

Infinite is defined as "limitless or endless in space, extent, or size; impossible to measure or calculate." The infinite is boundless, endless, interminable, limitless, permanent, timeless.

Infinity is space and number without limits. God is the infinite parent of space and the eternal parent of time. The Cosmic Womb holds the ocean of divine Mother Love life sparks and represents the infinite Mother aspect of God.

Edna Lister on Infinity

There is no such thing as God and. There is no God and man, or God and supply. God is infinite, so nothing but God can be. God fills all space, so no room for God and someone or God and something exists. God is the Someone, the something. – Edna Lister, God as Consciousness Appears as Form, January 1933.

If you perceive God's infinite nature, you comprehend that God appears as His Son, therefore God is the Father and God is the Son. Is this clear? Not God and the Son, but God the Infinite Invisible appearing as the Son of God. This is the only reason the Master could say, "He who has seen me hath seen the Father." We must understand this as a universal relationship. Otherwise, the life of the Master is meaningless. If oneness with the Father was the truth about the Master but not about you, then you could not attain oneness, you could not achieve it. – Edna Lister, God as Consciousness Appears as Form, January 1933.

You have the capacity to learn however much you desire. Your intelligence is infinite because God is your intelligence, and you can have whatever degree of awareness or knowledge you wish by using that intelligence. Centuries of separation from spiritual reality have focused our intelligence primarily on material and mental subjects. Therefore, our intelligence lacks spiritual illumination. Our intelligence has the same potential for illumination as a child has the capacity for infinite learning. Some use the One Mind more than others and outwardly appear "smarter," but this is not really true.

God has not graded intelligence by degree. Everyone is infinitely intelligent, but not everyone uses his intelligence in full measure. Each has the same infinite potential for spiritual enlightenment as he does for intelligence. We may say that the human race is a spiritually un-illumined mind. Humanity may be humanly intelligent, humanly creative, humanly brilliant, but it lacks spiritual illumination. – Edna Lister, God as Consciousness Appears as Form, January 1933.

God constitutes your being. God is your consciousness. Because God is infinite, your consciousness is infinite. Therefore, your consciousness appears as form infinitely: Your business, your art, your profession, your science is infinite. If you are a healer, your practice is infinite. If you are a teacher, your student body is infinite. No limit exists at all, unless you embroider yourself in limitation. – Edna Lister, God as Consciousness Appears as Form, January 1933.

Logic and reason are the methods by which we form our conceptions of the Infinite. – Edna Lister, September 3, 1949.

Emanation is the pantheistic doctrine that all things have been created as effluxes of the Divine Essence. Pantheism is the form of monism that identifies mind and matter, the infinite and finite, making them manifestations of universal or absolute being. – Edna Lister, September 9, 1955.

Panentheism "considers God and the world to be inter-related with the world being in God and God being in the world. It offers an increasingly popular alternative to both traditional theism and pantheism. Panentheism seeks to avoid either isolating God from the world as traditional theism often does or identifying God with the world as pantheism does. Traditional theistic systems emphasize the difference between God and the world while panentheism stresses God's active presence in the world." – John Culp

The finite mind cannot think past a certain point in the time of infinitude. This is why we stress giving up the "I." If the slightest tendency remains in the embodied soul to take credit — and remember, any form "I" takes in expression is the soul giving self credits — you reach only that point of comprehension. – Edna Lister, October 8, 1959.

The infinity of space is filled with what we call Being, principle, or God. The Emanations are principles: Wisdom, Love and the Logos, or Mind, Substance and Power, when they are exercized to create the universe. – Edna Lister, Hear, Hearken, Heed and Obey, November 8, 1959.

The metaphysical laws extend from "hearing about it" to becoming law. The whole process of unfoldment is coordinating your life with these principles, a bit at a time to expand into infinity, into cosmic consciousness. – Edna Lister, How Can I Apply Law to My Life? June 7, 1960.

Clear all the underbrush from the subconscious of all thoughts of being imposed on to be free to work with greater speed and accuracy. This will also open the crown lotus fully, leaving you spiritually armored yet able to draw in the answers before others ask questions, meeting a challenge before they give it, and increasing your capacity to infinity. – Edna Lister, December 6, 1963.

Your understanding of infinity arises only from those brain cells that you have awakened and developed. You have just enough to take you back to the Source consciously. – Edna Lister, Prediction and Prophecy, December 10, 1963.

When you contemplate infinity, there is no end to space, it goes on and on. – Edna Lister, Deity and Divinity, October 6, 1964.

At the end of a Day of Manifestation, not even a life spark can be left unaccounted. From its lowest descent into outer heaviness and darkness, the lowest point of evolution to the highest point of infinite ascension, there is an accounting and all substance-consciousness is ascending to be enfolded into the Light. – Edna Lister, September 4, 1966.

You have an infinite capacity to draw upon the potentials of God. – Edna Lister, September 8, 1968.

Your forty-four mental faculties must be functioning and the thousand-petaled crown lotus must be awake to infinite vision, to be perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect. – Edna Lister, September 8, 1968.

Pulsars are our first astronomical clocks. They translate eternity and infinity into time and space. – Edna Lister, September 8, 1968. {A pulsar is a neutron star.}

Declarations for Expansion into Infinity

"I am now possessed by the infinite, limitless and unchangeable glory of the Almighty. Every part of my body, heart, mind and affairs is permeated, exalted, and ascended. So it shall be. I am now walking the miracle pathway. All things else shall be added unto me, through Jesus Christ our Lord." – Edna Lister, July 12, 1945.

"My life is an infinite flowing stream of living splendor. The mighty Spirit of God's Wisdom and Power goes before me and makes my way easy, gracious and delightful." – Edna Lister, August 4, 1956.
