    Tell me why I wrote down some sort of poem that we are all one. Just to find this video like it was explaining my every emotion, like as if an answering to my question. Almost burst in tears watching this video. Been up over 24 hours though. 😴

    Everything set aside the main point of this video is to be humble and treat everyone the same/or how you'd like to be treated. we all are humans and should love each other regardless.

    what about the other deities living in other lokas? are they all part of God like us?

    We live in 3 dimensional world and what I learn in my religion that our soul enters into 4 dimensional space after death. Therefore, after death our soul gets a divya drishti and able to see his relatives crying but cannot do anything and we gets ready for our journey to yamloka (heaven/hell) and other lokas which exist in 4 dimensional space. Therefore somebody might be living in 5 dimensional space able to see how all galaxies and lokas of our universe are changing with the possibilities of time. So with all posiblities of time we are living in multiverse then there could be someone who is living in 6th dimension who can observe all possible timelines of multiple universes. So the question is who is living in 6th dimension and observing all possible timelines?Nothing but God himself. In hinduism this 6D space is Parmanand where soul dissolves after getting moksha and get away from vicious cycle of birth and death.

    I like this food for thought. I would only change one small thing, and that is the inclusion of all life and all forms of consciousness, not just the lives/consciousness of human beings. After all, human thought/experience didn't come from nothing. Plus, animals can feel love too.
