Although there are sometimes directions in the Vedic literature to think oneself one with the Lord, that does not mean that one becomes identical with the Lord in every respect. Undoubtedly there is oneness of the living entity with the Lord in many respects, but ultimately the living entity is subordinate to the Lord, and he is constitutionally meant for satisfying the senses of the Lord.

Srimad-Bhagavatam 2.9.3, Purport
There is nothing superior to the abode of the Supreme Godhead, and that abode is the ultimate destination.
Katha Upanisad 1.3.11
I am the goal, the sustainer, the master, the witness, the abode, the refuge, and the most dear friend. I am the creation and the annihilation, the basis of everything, the resting place, and the eternal seed.
Lord Sri Krsna
O [Krsna,] Lord of Madhu, as the Ganges forever flows to the sea without hindrance, let my attraction be constantly drawn unto You without being diverted to anyone else.
I do not pray to the Supreme Personality of Godhead for the eight perfections of mystic yoga, nor for salvation from repeated birth and death. I want only to stay among all the living entities and suffer all distresses on their behalf, so that they may be freed from suffering.
Remembrance of Lord Krsna's lotus feet destroys everything inauspicious and awards the greatest good fortune. It purifies the heart and bestows devotion for the Supreme Soul, along with knowledge enriched with realization and renunciation.
Srila Suta Gosvami
Let the wonderfully varied pastimes of the Lord be the very life of His servants who think of nothing but Him. For such devotees, those pastimes always increase the ecstasy of love of God.
All the demigods and all the transcendental philosophers who desire liberation bow down to the Supreme Lord.
