Yourself the iceberg and the ocean

Looking at this picture for now see the top of the iceberg as the separate individual, the iceberg below the surface as the world and the ocean as the consciousness, the observer/witness or the ''I am'' or what other word you like.

There is another way to look at this, one can be identified as the top of the iceberg, the whole iceberg or the ocean but... What is underlaying all of this? Isn't it all water?

One can identify but where is the identifier? Beyond the thought I, beyond the mind?

What this blogpost is to point out is that in essence there is no differentiation between the seeming separate ego/self, the universe/all form and consciousness, because of their equal underlaying element which everything contains or even is in essence. Like in the Heart Sutra they say: ''Form is emptiness and the very emptiness is form; emptiness does not differ from form, and form does not differ from emptiness.
Whatever is form, that is emptiness, and whatever is emptiness, that is form.''
