The “Imago Dei”

FeaturedCreation of Adam by Michaelangelo

Our appreciation to InspiringPhilosophy for posting the video above on YouTube.


So God created man in his own image; he created him in the image of God… Genesis 1:27 (CSBBible)


The imago Dei (“image of God”) does imply a relationship between God and man: a unique relationship of spiritual oneness by which our humanity or human nature is called upon to become the externalized fullness of our inherent divinity in Self-realization. We do not merely resemble God spiritually: We are identical in essence with the very Spirit essence of God, consistent with the nondualistic oneness taught in true mysticism.


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning…. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. We observed his glory, the glory as the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:1-2,14 (CSBBible)


The quality of “understanding morality” should be taken to mean the ability to discern the truth of this oneness from the falsehood of illusory duality, and ultimately to become the embodiment of this Truth. This entails the process which is referred to as enlightenment or spiritual illumination.

As to how we as human beings may be different from animals or other sentient beings that are also deemed to have been made in the “image of God,” the difference is only one of degrees by which we have become self-aware and ultimately attain the “realization of God” (God-realization).  Thus, spiritual traditions such as Hinduism speak of the god Vishnu incarnating in a number of evolutionary forms or species until he incarnates as the perfect man, Rama, and then finally the God-realized divine avatar, Krishna.

When the living God looks at the “image and likeness” of Itself in Its Mirror-Mind, God sees Itself as THE MAN IN THE MIRROR.

The Man in the Mirror (a spiritual fantasy image)
“Aha! It’s You.”
The Creator looks at Its own “image and likeness” in the mirror of Its Mind.
MAN IN THE MIRROR: “Aha! Gotcha, God. It’s you all along!” 😀
GOD: “WTF. Good God, help. My own good-looking image and likeness in my mirror-mind is alive and aware!”

Is God having a fright day? LOL. 😂

Peace on Earth

Peace on Earth wallpaper.

War is an unnatural state of existence for humanity, were it not for the governments that wage them in the name of nations and their people. It simply runs against the grain of man’s spiritual nature.

Here are videos of a unique incident during the First World War. It was Christmas time in 1914 when soldiers in the trenches of the warring sides overcame the hostility between their camps to come together spontaneously to celebrate the spirit of Christmas. Several such sporadic incidents along the war front came to be known as “The Christmas Truce.” Read, watch, and reflect.

Let us constantly renew our resolve to bring about the global illumination of humankind, to realize humanity’s collective transformation, and to bring lasting peace on earth. And let us remember that peace begins with each of us individually. Let your own inner light dispel the darkness in men’s minds and shine on the whole world.

Alternative Edens

Picture image of Lost Paradise

We know very little of our past history as a species. That incomplete self-knowledge has left us, humanity, crippled with a narrow, limited view of ourselves, resulting in ignorance, dogmatism, intolerance, division, conflict, and a general lack of collective self-worth.

Here are documentaries that suggest or propose alternative views and interpretations of the origins of humanity and the rise of the human condition, drawn from various sources and levels of understanding.
