Things like this blow my mind. I get we are somehow all connected to everything/body else because of some of the 'experiences' I have had. However, I can't literally 'see' it with my eyes so I remain believing but confused.

Confused is GOOD. I have been confused ( intentionally ) my entire life. I love it. Life is a dream in 3d and we are just traveling along wondering whats next.

I don't entirely like Chopra's rhetoric. At times it sounds pretentious to me, like when he says the nature of reality is "pure potential" - I would actually say consciousness is more ACTUAL than anything else, that it is Fullness rather than a glass half empty as it were. I just feel some of the things he says are mere wordplays without much else going on but that's just me.

The spirit of the video is in the right direction I feel though.
