The Divine, which is Absolute, is necessarily Infinite. As such, the Divine infinitely radiates itself since no barriers can exist to prevent this infinite radiation.
The Divine radiates itself as the Universe including me.
But as One with the Divine, I am more than just a devoted Lover who longs to unite with God, nor am I only the valiant Seeker who struggles to know the Divine.
For most of my life, I dealt with the Divine as One Apart from me.
But I as Lover and as Seeker exist only as Loved and Known by the Creator, not really apart.
Creation, my individual Soul, and God are indeed one.
I can distinguish myself from others for purposes of communication but my mind, heart, will, apart from God do not really exist.
It is not I who lives, but Christ that lives in me.
This is not simply identifying myself with God, it is the honest recognition that the Divine exists alone and that all of the universe, all of creation, including me, is simply the radiation of that Eternal Infinite.
