अहं ब्रह्मास्मि - I am the infinite Reality
Brhadaranyaka Upanishad 1.4.10 of the Yajur Veda.
Neither there was a creation nor destruction. Everything is Maya. We are Nirguna Brahman in reality. We are that Brahman or eternal, everlasting, infinite, peaceful consciousness or GOD.
When you are walking or sitting or running, you are aware of your own self. You know that you are walking or sitting or you are aware of your surroundings and reality . Let’s assume that you are sleeping and you started dreaming.
Let’s assume that a tiger is chasing you in dream. You run as if it is real and you try hard to save yourself from tiger. But in dream you don’t know “other (real) you” who is responsible for the dream and “real you” is just sleeping and not aware of surroundings. Let’s assume, you wake up now and dream disappears and so tiger and “illusory form of you”, which was chased by a “illusory tiger”.
Now again you are aware of your surroundings. Let’s apply this analogy to ultimate truth. Dream state is “MAYA or illusion”. In reality you are only one but in Maya (dream), you assumed there are two creatures tiger and an illusory form of you. Same is here. That Brahman or Atman (can be called as soul in English) , ever blissful Consciousness in reality is one but due to Maya, it diversifies into many forms such as humans, animals and all other diverse species with mountains, rivers, galaxies, planets and multiverses.
When you realize, world with Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswara (Saguna Brahman or Iswara) vanishes just as dream vanishes when you wake-up. There's no point of who is Supreme Saguna Brahman as Maya deludes different persons differently .All Puranas are factually correct relatively in Maya and such is the power of this illusory Maya. It deludes different persons differently. Never boast yourself as Brahman as Aham Brahmasi means I'm Brahman. You are only Brahman in reality or at absolute level not while living in Maya or relative level. There is no absolute thing when you are in veil of Maya. Your ultimate Goal is to remove Maya.
So, forget dualities and annihilate the negative traits in you which make Maya stronger.
क्रोधाद्भवति संमोहः संमोहात्स्मृतिविभ्रमः।
स्मृतिभ्रंशाद् बुद्धिनाशो बुद्धिनाशात्प्रणश्यति।।
krodhād bhavati sammohaḥ sammohāt smṛti-vibhramaḥ
smṛti-bhraḿśād buddhi-nāśo buddhi-nāśāt praṇaśyati
From anger, complete delusion arises, and from delusion bewilderment of memory. When memory is bewildered, intelligence is lost, and when intelligence is lost one falls down again into the world of Maya.
My views are close to Advaita with Ista Deva of Parameshwara-AdiParaShakthi,the divine Father and Mother (Saguna Brahman) of the Cosmos.
