Someone please correct me if I am wrong or even slightly off here - but I believe the concept here in overly simplistic terms is that we are all
"God". All of us are parts of the whole. We are each here to go through life (regardless of how long or short our life is) and have experiences.
Whether good, bad, boring, exciting, starving, gluttonous, whatever. The point is the experience. The belief is that there's not really "good" nor
"bad", just experiences to bring back to the source. I would imagine you could compare it to looking back at your own life's experiences and
memories. I, for example, have many memories of visiting different places, states, countries, both coasts of America, mountains, etc. So that could be
one set of experiences for my own whole. I have experienced true love (and still am), I've been with people just for sex, I've had my heart broken,
lost friends and loved ones etc. - the emotional extremes with emotional highs and lows as well as the physical extremes of absolute physical
pleasures as well as intense physical pain. I have been surrounded by a loving family but I have also spent a Christmas Day one year in the army in a
bar in Korea where I experienced a homesickness like never before. All of these are singular experiences that make up the "whole" of my life so far.
At some point we will all die and we don't go to Heaven or Hell or whatever...we return to the whole or the oneness or take our place again as being
a part of the one God or whatever human words you want to use to explain it. The "point" of our lives is not good or evil, just the experience. So
the "one" that we are all a part of can have an almost infinite amount of experience. And when we return to the one-ness, we will all have the same
And I'm sorry if my attempt to make this simple actually failed.
Also - I'm not saying I believe in this, but I'm not saying I don't. I certainly believe it is a possible truth, though, on my lifelong quest for
