"Lord Jesus, who is your Father?"Shri Jesus immediately replied ...
"Kash agreed to pass these suggestions to the Great Divine Mother.
He meditated and the energy of the Holy Spirit of God, residing at
the roots of the Tree of Life within him traveled all the way up and
blossomed into the Thousand Petalled Lotus. He emerged through the
clouds and slowly floated into his ethereal body that was meditating
beside the Great Primordial Mother. He stood up and, after exchanging
greetings with the Supreme Mater Sanctissima, told Her that he wanted
to see Shri Jesus. She agreed and both traveled through the universe
to His place.
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi slowed down as they approached His abode. A short distance away Kash could see that Shri Jesus was in deep meditation, His massive spiritual body poised magnificently on the soft cloud cover. It was a sight to behold, a Divine Being powerful beyond all human imagination, sitting in utter peace and egoless humility. The entire atmosphere was charged with spiritual Energy, Silence and Bliss.
When they came near Shri Jesus came out of meditation and got up to receive them. He was dressed in a one-piece light gray dress that extended to His ankles, like a robe. There was another piece of cloth, also light gray, that was draped across His right shoulder down to the left waist.
After exchanging greetings all of them sat down. Kash then asked the Spirit of the Living God again if he could ask Shri Jesus some questions. The Great Holy Spirit smiled and told him to go ahead. Kash first posed this question to Shri Christ," Lord Jesus, who is your Father?"Shri Jesus immediately replied," The Spirit is My Father." "

Shri Jesus clearly admitted that His Father is the Spirit. So He is definitely the Son of His Father, the Spirit.
But why do all - Shri Ganesha, Jesus, Hanuman, Sita, Rama, Buddha, Radha, Krishna, Shiva, Prophet Muhammad, Guru Nanak and others - meditate only on the Holy Spirit/Shakti/Ruh? The answer is the Spirit/God Almighty/Brahman and His Holy Spirit/Spirit/Shakti are one and the same.
The Spirit/God Almighty/Brahman exists within us as The Light which is always above His Holy Spirit/Spirit/Shakti. At all times Shri Ganesha, Jesus, Hanuman, Sita, Rama, Buddha, Radha, Krishna, Shiva, Prophet Muhammad, Guru Nanak and others meditate on the Spirit/God Almighty/Brahman (Father) and His Holy Spirit/Spirit/Shakti (Mother).
This Truth has been witnessed hundreds of times over the years. It is part and parcel of the Divine Message to humanity. One day even the purely monotheistic Muslims will realize why the Qur'n addresses the Divine as"We"," Us"And"Our." This duality is constantly repeated throughout the Qur'an but even this black and white scriptural evidence has been twisted into a most grotesque untruth. Like Christians, Muslims too have used all the theological tricks at their disposal, and blatant lies as well, to convince themselves that His Ruh is Angel Grabriel! We will cross this bridge when it comes, and all others over the years. There is indeed a lot of ground that needs to be covered and challenges issued to the fundamentalist guardians of religious regimes who keep their followers as spiritually ignorant, theologically indoctrinated and religiously narrow-minded as themselves.
In his nature God is pure spirit.
"In his nature God is pure spirit. Very early in his self-disclosure as the author of the created universe, God is represented as the Spirit who brought light out of darkness, and order out of chaos (Gn. 1:2-3). Christ made this disclosure of God as the object of our worship to the woman of Samaria: "God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and truth." (Jn. 4:24). Between these two affirmations there are frequent references to the nature of God as pure spirit and as divine spirit. He is called the Father of spirits (Heb. 12:9), and the combination 'the Spirit of the living God' is frequently used.
In this respect we must distinguish between God and his creatures that are spiritual. When we say that God is pure spirit, it is to emphasize that he is not part spirit and part body as man is. He is simple spirit without form or parts, and for that reason he has no physical presence. When the Bible speaks of God as having eyes, ears, hands and feet, it is an attempt to convey to us the senses that these physical parts convey, for if we do not speak of God in physical terms we could not speak of him at all. This, of course, does not imply any imperfection in God. Spirit is not a limited or restricted form of existence, it is the perfect unit of being. When we say that God is infinite spirit, we pass completely out of the reach of our experience. We are limited as to the time and place, as to knowledge and power. God is essentially unlimited, and every element of his nature is unlimited. His infinity as to time we call his eternity, as to knowledge his omniscience, as to power his omnipotence."

God is spirit. This defines His substance.
A Samaritan woman once asked Jesus where her people should worship God - on Mount Gerizim, as had been their custom, or in Jerusalem. John 4:20. The underlying question was whose religion was correct, stated in terms of the proper place for worship. To this question, Jesus replied:
Woman, believe me, the hour comes, when neither in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, will you worship the Father. You worship that which you don't know. We worship that which we know; for salvation is from the Jews. But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to be his worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth. John 4:21-24 (WEB).
Thus, Jesus answer to the question in what place God should be worshipped was not a physical place at all. Rather, it was a spiritual place or condition - in spirit and in truth. Further, the reason God seeks to be worshipped not in a physical temple but in spirit is that God is spirit. This defines God's substance.
Spirit is like wind or breath
In order to understand what it means that God is spirit, a linguistic observation should first be made. The Hebrew word commonly translated"spirit"has as its primary meaning"breath." (2) Indeed, the King James translators render this word as"breath"In twenty six places. (3) Further, in three passages(4) this Hebrew word, as applied to God, is stated in direct parallel to another word which is rendered"breath"or &wind." (5) Moreover, in John 4:21-24, quoted above, the Greek word pneuma(6) , the primary meaning of which is"breath," "Breeze"or"Wind," is rendered"spirit"three times. Pneuma is, indeed, the only word used to refer to the spirit of God or of a man in the New Testament(7). The spirits of both God and men are directly compared to the wind in John 3:5-8 (WEB):
Jesus answered," Most certainly I tell you, unless one is born of water and spirit, he can't enter into the Kingdom of God! That which is born of the flesh is flesh. That which is born of the (8) Spirit is spirit. Don't marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born anew.' The wind blows where it wants to, and you hear its sound, but don't know where it comes from and where it is going. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."

 This Hebrew word, in lexical form, transliterated is rwach. (My computer does not speak Hebrew).
 Genesis 6:17, 7:15; 2 Samuel 22:16; Job 4:9, 9:18, 12:10, 15:30, 17:1, 19:17; Psalm 18:15, 33:6, 104:29, 135:17, 146:4, 150:6; Ecclesiastes 3:19; Isaiah 11:4, 30:28, 33:11; Jeremiah 10:14, 51:17; Lamentations 4:20; Ezekiel 37:5,6,8,9,10; Habakkuk 2:19.
 Job 33:4; Job 34:14; Isaiah 11:1-4.
 The word is neshamah.
 This, too, is a transliteration. My computer also does not speak Greek.
 The word phantasma is also rendered"spirit"In Matthew 14:26 and Mark 6:49 in KJV, but has more the meaning"specter"or"ghost." Otherwise, the only word rendered"spirit"In the KJV New Testament is pneuma, although in John 3:8 this word is rendered"Wind."Pnoe, a closely related word, is rendered"Wind"In Acts 2:2 and"breath"In Acts 17:25.
 The definite article here is not found in the Greek texts, but was supplied by translators, presumably either to make this clause parallel the last half of verse 6 (in which the definite article is found) or to make plain their interpretation that"spirit"In this verse means"The [Holy] Spirit."The definite article in this location may be unnecessary.
