Is the conscious, mystical experience of "I Am" still in the realm of the ego?

This question is asked at 4 minutes into the video below.

Overall description of video: Autonomy is a more subtle form of specialness. God
creates and creation is extension. Spirit creates spirit. This is what Jesus calls true
autonomy. What counts as autonomy in this world is independence which is a false sense
of autonomy. The spiritual path leads to the realization that "I Am-ness" is so more vast than we
can imagine. There are many praises of autonomy in Western culture and great fear can arise of
losing personal independence. However both personal identity and collective identity are false
constructs. Complete God dependence is a feeling of trust and being completely taken care of
without any risk.
