I'm quite interested in Sikhi but have a question that I just can't get past... Sikhs speak of being one with God, or merging with God, etc.; does this mean literally "one with God" or is this a metaphor? Do "I" as an individual cease to exist or am I still me but no longer perceive any separation from God?

It literally means your soul merges with God, just like a drop of water merges with the ocean. Then there remains no difference between that soul and God. Your soul still exists but no one can differentiate between your soul and God, just like the drop of water when mingles with the ocean still exists but become one with the ocean.

What happens after death?
What is the purpose of life?
