The Truth just is.
God is Truth.

Eternity does not start with death.
We are in eternity now." - Norman Vincent Peale

I believe that essentially, all three are exactly the same and it is only word-play semantics which differentiates them.

Suffice to say, I believe in a Hindu Soul. lol

They’re similar. People just have trouble understanding what a Buddhist “No Self” means and think it’s contradictory to the others.

No self does not literally mean you have no personality — it talks about having no self, which is completely different.

Think of how a house may have different rooms, but you still call it one house. Just like we see ourselves as different people, but we’re all just one universe. The all, and that’s no self. There are different “rooms” of personality and preferences, but we’re still one and the same. Souls are artificial categories of difference, but if you’d like to separate these into specfic words to communicate well, that still works.

In the same way that if you look at the Earth from space, there’s no dividing line between different countries like they do in maps. But these maps still help us make sense of artificial human ideas, and it’s alright to use it as long as we’re conscious that these separations don’t have to be.

We’re still connected after all, and these lines in maps don’t have to make us forget that even if we’re from different countries, we’re all still human beings. And we’re all one.
