Answer: It depends on you: with what you identify.
Do you identify yourself with a part of the higher consciousness or just with how you feel in your mortal body? Do you identify yourself as existing in some kind of “organism,” for example, in a group? It all depends on your definition of yourself.
How else? Who will give you such a universal definition? Even if Kabbalah speaks about it, it still means nothing. The main thing is how you define yourself.
In fact, you are the highest consciousness. Moreover, you are not just a part of this consciousness because by revealing it, through it, you achieve merging with the whole consciousness, call it the Creator. This is your highest attainment, merging with it, but proceeding from an individual point, which is your “I.”
Question: And what is the individuality?
Answer: In the fact that in this case you represent what is called “Adam.” On the one hand, you comprehend the peak of possible revelation, which is no longer in nature at all. On the other hand, only you comprehend this, proceeding from your individual point.
Question: It turns out that “I” is something that includes absolutely everything, and at the same time something very individual, which no one else has?
Answer: Your individuality does not disappear anywhere. This is your primordial data from the general system.
But due to the fact that you connect with the entire system on the property of bestowal, you want to enter it, you seem to acquire the whole system. It becomes yours in individual receipt relative to your point. And it turns out that your very point, narrow, rough individuality, in fact a point, adheres with the entire system, which is infinity.
