Disciples seek fusion with the Deity through meditation and contemplation. The initiates of India have summed up this exercise in the formula, ‘I am He’, which is to say, God alone exists; I am only a reflection, a replica, a shadow; I exist only to the extent that I am able to become one with him.
In reality, we do not exist as creatures distinct from the Lord; we are part of him. This is why initiatic science teaches human beings the methods they must use to detach from their illusory images of themselves. When we say, ‘I am He’, we understand that we do not exist apart from God, so we strive to unite ourselves with him, draw close to him so that one day we shall truly be like him.
