Manifestation of God's glory in the human body is a way in which Divine creation can reflect itself. Within this manifestation God's essential aspects of love, compassion, strength, and kindness, to name just a few, are manifested as well. Unfortunately, in the process of the human development, the ego developes as well and thus the separation from Divine spirit and the 'forgetting' begins.
The egoic mind continues the separation/individuation process, creating the 'I'm in control' dominance, while true spirit moves into the background. It is part of our purpose to take the inner journey to reconnect with the Divine essential nature that we are and learn how to live in the world as spiritual beings.
Many blessings to you.
