Accepting paradox

It seems like accepting paradox is the key to enlightenment and to our own peace of mind.  It seems that we are both a loving God/Oneness and individual “souls”.  And it seems that God is the same: someone we can pray to as well as being our own ultimate identity.  When Buddhists speak of “emptiness”, is this what they are alluding to?  Are we both individual souls and also NOT individual souls because our ultimate identity is God who is being us?
