Oh I know. But you are still a distinct individual. In unity with God, you are an individual of the same mind as God. Thus your free will remains,
your self remains, and God is with you. If you are not with God, you go to hell.
In terms of the soul and self, read bellow.

The soul is not a power plant. If it was, we would not need to eat. Everything is not made of star dust. Stardust and everything is made of the same
matter. Nothing more than vibrating compressed light.
There is no compression in forming human. The density of a human is the same density of its environment. Spiritually, we would not be compressed, as
species like dolphins have far more empathy and love than we do, and yet have nothing special.
I do not personally view my total self as an individual in this flesh, but I am an individual all the same. I have many "processes" in my mind.
Enemies. Friends. Neutral. I began dreaming lives that were not my own early in life, and began writing them down for stuff to make a book out of one
day. but this is all a fabrication of my own mind. On more than one occasion, I have deleted these "processes" in my mind that got annoying. Anger was
one of the first to get it. occasionally they re-manifest themselves in new forms to try and tempt me in different ways. From my perspective, this is
temptation and satan. Above this all there is me. The me that runs this body. The me that listens to both sides of the others and decides. I
occasionally fall asleep and realize my wrongs of the flesh afterwords. But in the end, i am still me. Once, for a few seconds, I had an experience of
viewing my flesh from an aerial perspective. The flesh went into auto pilot and began to act violently, and I quickly hopped back in to recover it
As you can see, I have deep spirituality and have had experiences. Very real ones. In another one, I experienced removal of all flesh. I had no input.
Could not see, smell, etc etc. nothing. Did I merge into other consciousnesses? No. I was alone. I was in hell. Complete division from reality. Cut
off. I shouted For God to save me. I saw a sudden star appear. This star was not seen by light, but by the mind. For all I had was the mind. It said
"I am that I am, you are who you are, we all are who we all are". It then exploded and I awoke about 2 feet over my bed falling down, I hope because I
shocked myself into the air. This is my statement of faith. The statement that I am me. Not you. We will never be one. We may coexist eventually in
the same realm, but always individuals.
this is what I get from mediation. So now. who is the right one?
