Consciousness

Something that I would like the answer to..........When we pass away do we merge into the infinite consciousness or are we units of consciousness that keep the sense of I?

Sense of I is attached to your memory of your experiences / decisions / preferences / conclusions etc which is stored in brain cells which gets destroyed with the body . So all gross memories will be gone. However soul-defining attributes like bravery , benevolence , just , fairness , compassion etc are still attached to your consciousness and still remains with you .

A very excellent, debatable question.

Add pass lives or re-births and the question becomes more complex.

Yes.
Now, when it's time for us to do this 'merging or union'...it will happen.

For me, I may have 500 more lives -or 50 or 20---But even when I'm advanced or aware enough
to not come back to this earth-human plane ...there will be plenty of other 'jobs' for me in other places.
That doesn't mean I won't be experiencing many blissful experiences
as I do now, forever - wherever I may be.

Reading the many sessions Dr. Brian Weiss has had doing Past-Life Regressions would be very interesting to you;
the actual passing from this life in particular
.
Moving on later to Rob Schwartz' research;
Anything by Chico Xavier and Anthony Borgia, also...if you wanna know more about the Afterlife.
Or talk to mediums personally...they will tell you their contacts are not merged into the One....yet.

My gosh, Babaji or Sri Yukteswar aren't even merged into the One...yet.

And reincarnation is really not that complex...it's almost a routine, expected yawn...ok, 'to me'.
Research more...and what fun it is!!!

Oh, good you're a youtube watcher...try this one...it's 2 hours, so, ya know,
watch 15 min at a time if you need to...so worth it.
