For God formed us to be imperishable;
the image of his own nature he made us – Wis 2:23

we were not created for this world
we were created for Eden
as this world is but a shadow of Eden
we are but a reflection of our Godlikeness

as the reflection imitates the image
we yearn to grasp our true nature
the longing of our deepest desires
a return to Eden and our true selves
