the small self is dead

Sunday, January 01, 2006 Happy New Year & Happy Bangday to the Cosmos!
The Cosmos is 13.7 billion years old today. I wonder why they measure it in years? A year is just one trip around the sun, but the cosmos was here way before there was an earth or a sun. posted by Gagdad Bob at 9:00 AM
It lived, it knew, it saw itself sublime,
Deathless, outmeasuring Space, outlasting Time.
I have escaped and the small self is dead;
I am immortal, alone, ineffable;
I have gone out from the universe I made,
And have grown nameless and immeasurable.
I have become what before Time I was.
My heart is a centre of infinity
A momentless immensity pure and bare,
I stretch to an eternal everywhere.
--Sri Aurobindo
