Understanding the meaning of God

In this world everything and everyone has some source.
The root of all existence is God.
God is the Supreme Father of every living entity.

Who created God?
God was never created.  Since we are inside the time domain, our bodies are created and destroyed.  God exists outside the time domain.  He has been existing eternally and will continue to exist eternally.
In the search for the source of one object after another, God is like the period - the source of everything.

Srimad Bhagavatam 1.1.1: "God is the one from whom everything emanates"

Brahma Smahita 5.1: "Govinda, Lord Krishna is the cause of all causes, but He Himself has no other cause"

How do you define God?
1. Source of everything
2. Cause of all causes
3. The Supreme Controller
4. The Supreme Proprietor
5. The Supreme Enjoyer

Although we may try to enjoy independent of God, we derive only flickering pleasure from our so-called enjoyment.  This is because we, living entities, are all part of God.  Therefore, we are simply Co-operators or Servants.  We can achieve true happiness only by serving God with love, understanding Him to be the ultimate enjoyer.
