Thats the problem with English language. There are certain words in other languages like Sanskrit for which there is no correct translation in English. The Self that is being referred here is known as 'Atman' in Sanskrit which is qualitatively similar to Omnipresent Almighty. In other words we can say its referring to Soul.
