Genesis 1: 27

Genesis 1: 27. So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
Note here that God’s image is masculine and feminine.  This is the Holy Bible. This is the original genesis story.  There is however a later tale which is considered the addition of much later ‘priests’ which talks about Adam and the rib and Eve coming from the rib.  That’s not the old text but a later text.  Here is the essence of the ‘image’ of God, image being face and God being both masculine and famine as one might describe the omnipotentiality of a stem cell.
There’s always ‘mystery’. The great unknown.  We stand in awe of God because God is us and more.  We are different and alike. There is  within us the connection to God and within us the capacity for creation as the creator.
I find it remarkable studying biology that a neut can regrow it’s tale, that skin heals, that nerves regenerate.  The rate of the process seems limiting but the process is there. We have but to awaken the capacity which is inherent within despite the constant negativity that pours down from above politically and the policing that happen all around us.  We are created in the image of God , male and female.
Image is face but it’s also the root of imagination.  We are the dream within the dream.  We are miraculous and this is all sacred.
