These are the treasures of man, given by God to every one of his Sons and Daughters upon the earth regardless of creed or color, race or ethnicity, for such is the beingness of man that he was created to reflect the many faces of God-- if such we may say-- for indeed we know that God has no face; for he is Spirit, but in terms of the the physical, we say the face. For the Spirit created man in the image of God, but that of course, entails the physical, and all the beingness that encompasses the very nature of God which is love. This then, is the likeness of God, to be love, to know love, and to show love to others. This then is the image and likeness of God...to be like God upon the Earth, doing and being the example of God upon the Earth...showing love, mercy, joy, peace and happiness to all: Caring for your brethren and being the peace, happiness, and joy of God in human form. For without this man is naught, but with the spirit of God within him, he is all: the total joy of God; man in the physical flesh, with the love, peace,joy and knowledge of God within the shell of man.
