People think the Soul is within the body therefore, they are God. People study Vedanta and they are under the delusion and conclude that they declare:~ "I-Am-Brahman", but they fail to realize the fact that Brahman is everywhere and in everything! The existence of Brahman is not limited to his physical identity, because it the very essence of the form, time and the space.
What is the use of saying ‘I AM’ God without knowing what God is in actuality. You are not the Self, so you are not God. The ‘Self' is the Soul, which is present in the form the Spirit. The Sprit is God.
The Vedas confirms God is Atman (spirit), the innermost Self.
Rig Veda: ~ The Atman is the cause; Atman is the support of all that exists in this universe. May ye never turn away from the Atman the innermost self. May ye never accept another God in place of the Atman nor worship other than the Atman?" (10:48, 5)
Bible says: ~ “God is a Spirit, and they that worship God must worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24)”,
Christ means the ultimate truth. Ultimate truth is Spirit. Christ is not physical. Christ is the Spirit. Christ is the innermost Self. The Christ is birthless and deathless because Christ is formless, timeless and spaceless existence.
The birth, life and death happen within the illusory world, which is created out of Christ, which is present in the form of the Spirit.
The Spirit is the root element of the universe. The Spirit is present in the form of the Soul, the innermost Self. The Soul is present in the form of the consciousness. From the Spirit the universe comes into existence. In the Spirit the universe resides. And into the Spirit the universe is dissolved. The Spirit is the parent of all that is there is.
In Yajurveda – chapter- 32:~ It has been said that God Supreme or Supreme Spirit.
If God is the formless Spirit, then how does the man know God created the world? There is no proof. If the man had seen God creating the world, he could admit it, but how could he have seen God before he came into existence? (i.e. were created).
