Why do some scriptures promote the philosophy of absolute oneness?

Question: 
Why are there statements in scripture that seem to promote the idea of oneness between the Absolute and the living entities?


Our Answer:
There are two types of transcendentalist—the devotee and the monist—and statements promoting oneness or impersonalism are only to attract those who are attached to the monistic idea.
