I am here, Jesus.
Let me comment on what has perplexed you for a long time. You are reading about the Sufis and their doctrine of merging, at one with God. You are confused because the more you progress in the Divine love, the more intact is your sense of yourself, when you have read that so many teach that we must lose ourselves in God.
Well, actually, both statements are true. That is, we find our individuality, our self-expression, in God.
But it is a fact that spirits always retain their individuality, even in the Celestial Heavens. We Celestial Angels are completely at one with God, and everything we do centers around the Divine Will. And yet we greet each other and recognize each other as unique.
So you need not be confused. The Sufis and others are emphasizing the need to abandon the selfish ego, which separates people from life. They are teaching the necessity of seeing oneself as an intimate part of the cosmos and of God.
