Here, in connection with the answer given by Sri Vidyasankar, we can also remember Sri Shankaracharya's words in Dakshinamurthy Stotra -
Ishwarogururaatmeti Murthybedah vibhagine
vyomavat vyaapta dehaaya Sri Dakshinamurthaye namah
The three entities of Ishwara, Guru and Aatma (the 'self' of the Shishya) are but one and the same, which pervades all the universe, but appears as three different entities in three different forms (because of our ignorance). once the Shishya realises the Truth taught by the Guru these differences merge.

The true guru who can reveal the truth is one who has already
realized the truth as "So'ham", so even this apparent third entity, the
speaker of "you are that", is in essence identical with the second entity,
the he in "I am he".
