You're mixing together ideas from too many sources and the result is a mish-mash. KISS - Keep It Simple Sweetie - I much prefer simplicity when dealing with matters of the spirit
.

Well sweetie... perhaps you should share with the class exactly what you meant.

Absorption theory is absorption theory to me. In the end it all comes down to us all being wiped up and wiped out by the big paper towel in the sky..

I don't think the journey has any ending, but is a never ending journey. Love it!

There is no end, there is an end to the body, but we are not the body, so we are where we have always been, here and now, there is no other place to be.

I cant speak for everyone, but I believe we were talking about the end of our segregation in humanity (the want to cause harm or ill intent). The journey, as you stated, will always continue. it will change from colliding with others during a merge of thought, to, it will flow toward a common or shared result. Allowing our journey to continue infinite.

According to The Tibetan Book of the Dead, we are drawn to a dimension and there we fly - the more perfected the soul is, the higher the dimension.

I didn't really read that in the Tibetan Book of the Dead, but I think your point is awesome.

What happens at the very end?
Is there a end? What happens when we are perfected spiritually?

When we are perfected and have served as much as is needed we dissolve as an individual consciousness... the drop dissolves back into the formless ocean beyond all dimensions.

Me personally, I don't believe there is an end. All your doing is moving to a different dimension once you "die". ;)

I never liked the sea of life "formless creation" idea, if there is no comparison how would it know it exists? Who would it converse with? Laugh with? How could you do something nice for someone if its just going back to you? Too many questions for me to settle on that thought. It would seem to me to be going back to the beggining and not our infinite end.
