That video--and the message it's trying to put forth--is, quite frankly, bull#. Try telling psychologically scarred, hurting, abused, neglected, or otherwise outcast, rejected people that "we are all one!" and see how much they'll agree with you. It isn't at all impossible for a person to grasp this concept of oneness if she or he isn't particularly unique in the first place. Try, however, to tell someone who knows all too well the pain of being different that "we are all one." You won't get a lot of agreement.

Unfortunately, you talk for yourself. I never said that we are not all connected. What I'm saying is that somewhere in the video, they're saying: "Our reality is just an illusion." and that is pure bull#. I never said a word about oneness.

It doesn't surprise me that a person like yourself exist.

Ya know... on further thinking, I'm fed up of this moral presumption by certain people in the spiritual movement. Several posters in this thread have stated, rather condescendingly (and arrogantly) that “one day you’ll ‘get it’ like I do, and realize we’re all one”. I’m not dismissing the idea at all, but it is just another spiritual theory among many. It is not gospel, it’s just currently quite a fashionable idea.
Actually, to be honest, I’m pretty fed up with this whole ‘peace, love & light’ stuff which many ATS posters seem to be signing every post with. That’s not to say I don’t value peace, love and light. But true righteousness and enlightenment sometimes requires violence, hate and darkness. For a start, you can’t know peace, love and light without knowing violence, hate and darkness. Many of you are probably reading this getting ready to hit the POST REPLY button to call me ‘unenlightened’. But come back to me if you ever have the misfortune of catching an intruder trying to rape your daughter. Tell me how peaceful and loving you were in that moment. Or perhaps you find yourself one day confronting a member of the Rothschild family who decides to let you in on everything they and their forefathers have been responsible for. Tell me just how much you ‘loved’ them in that moment.

Secondly, rapists on top of Rothschild, Warburg, Davidson, Lehman, Bush, Goldman, Morgan, Rockefeller, etc., etc., are essentially dead zones. They're egos that require being cast off. An 80-100 year lifetime in this World is a drop in the bucket. A record of deeds holds considerably more weight than I imagine these individuals grasp.

Very moving and thought provokig video OP, Thanks for that.
It would be nice if one day humanity reached a point of understanding where we all thought along the lines of unity as the video leans toward.
I think many of us are starting to wake up to that idea.. of interconnectedness and all being one humanity.
Also i think that many other people struggle with accepting the idea and thus fight to preserve their world views.
I think it is about showing empathy toward these people and understanding that we too came from this place of ignorance and fear. That's not to belittle any one person or to come across condescending, that isnt the intention. I am simply pointing out that many of us are spiritually evolving faster than others. I think rather than fight those that are struggeling with the idea of unity it would actually be better to hear them out, let them have their say and then explain your point of view to them. Show them that your ideology encompasses their interests as equally as your own. That they are in your picture as much as you yourself are. That there is no idividuality, no difference and that we are all infact one.
When enough of humanity awaken to this idea then and only then can we start thinking about bringing peace back this beautiful earth which sustains us.
