What does our Spirit look like? Who are we when the body is shed? Are we Light?
Luke 11:33-35 NASB
33 “No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.
34 The eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is clear (a), your whole body also is full of light; but when it is bad (b), your body also is full of darkness.
35 Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness.
36 If therefore your whole body is full of light, with no dark part in it, it will be wholly illumined, as when the lamp illumines you with its rays.” [34 a) Or healthy b) Or evil]

I believe our essence which animates the body is the Light given us by God.
Divine sparks, created in His Image.
