Question: What is the difference between Truth and God? Does God have a form that we can see?Sri Chinmoy: They are the same thing, like the obverse and reverse of the same coin. You cannot separate them. One side of the coin shows you one thing, and the other side shows you something else. So Truth and God are the same thing. God is Absolute Truth. He is formless and, at the same time, He has form. It is like water and ice — sometimes it is formless, sometimes it can take any form. God Himself can incarnate in a human body, as He did in the Christ. But at the same time, He is not limited to the physical. At one and the same moment He is in the spirit, invisible to our human eyes, He is in human form, or He may be the incarnation of the Absolute Truth or some other divine quality. When the Christ said, “I and my Father are one,” He was alive on earth to give that message. His followers saw Him, and since then millions and billions of people have believed in Him. God in human form has been seen by many with their human eyes, living in a human body. Again, in spiritual form He is always available to all human beings.
