Soul or no soul , nobody can deny the etheric realm of energy which is powering the whole universe.
Himalayan mystics have been saying this since ages , now physics is validating what they said.

To say No God ( Buddha) or everything is God (Hinduism) is the same thing !

PS
Best info comes after becoming Him

It is easy with the help of a Jeeva who already realized Him and human, so He can easily be loved

Love God straight away on our own would burn us to ashes

No death for an enthousiastic RSSB Lover

Buddha attained freedom from bondage.

'In the Vanapattha Sutta (Majjhima, chapter 17)[3] the Buddha describes life in the jungle, and the attainment of awakening. After destroying the disturbances of the mind, and perfecting concentration of mind, he attained three knowledges (vidhya):[4][5]

Insight into his past lives
Insight into the workings of Karma and Reincarnation
Insight into the Four Noble Truths
Insight into the Four Noble Truths is here called awakening.[6] The monk (bhikkhu) has

...attained the unattained supreme security from bondage.[7]'

Not your western filter of "nothing", just nothing you have any knowledge of.

"33. Just as a fletcher straightens an arrow shaft, even so the discerning man straightens his mind — so fickle and unsteady, so difficult to guard.

34. As a fish when pulled out of water and cast on land throbs and quivers, even so is this mind agitated. Hence should one abandon the realm of Mara.

35. Wonderful, indeed, it is to subdue the mind, so difficult to subdue, ever swift, and seizing whatever it desires. A tamed mind brings happiness.

36. Let the discerning man guard the mind, so difficult to detect and extremely subtle, seizing whatever it desires. A guarded mind brings happiness.

37. Dwelling in the cave (of the heart), the mind, without form, wanders far and alone. Those who subdue this mind are liberated from the bonds of Mara.

38. Wisdom never becomes perfect in one whose mind is not steadfast, who knows not the Good Teaching and whose faith wavers.

39. There is no fear for an awakened one, whose mind is not sodden (by lust) nor afflicted (by hate), and who has gone beyond both merit and demerit. [6]

40. Realizing that this body is as fragile as a clay pot, and fortifying this mind like a well-fortified city, fight out Mara with the sword of wisdom. Then, guarding the conquest, remain unattached.

41. Ere long, alas! this body will lie upon the earth, unheeded and lifeless, like a useless log.

42. Whatever harm an enemy may do to an enemy, or a hater to a hater, an ill-directed mind inflicts on oneself a greater harm.

43. Neither mother, father, nor any other relative can do one greater good than one's own well-directed mind."

The Dhammapada, chapter 3

And Basic Sant Mat

No individual soul.
Yet reincarnation, yet Karma.
Budha rejected Atheism, the notion that we do not continue after death.
Anatta is without individual soul. So what is it that lives in and carries Karma from reincarnation to reincarnation?

If you took all the coverings of Karma away what is left? Nothing individual. The drop and the ocean are the same.

This is not nothing. Just nothing that could be defined individually as separate from everything.

Pure Sant Mat.
