Your entire future depends on your ability to recognise your divine lineage, to become conscious that God is within you, that the divine, universal Spirit lives in you and that you can therefore identify with it. But of course this exercise requires that you take certain precautions. First of all, your consciousness that the divinity dwells within you must be accompanied by the same consciousness that the divinity lives in all human beings as well. In this way, you will remain humble, simple, amiable, and open to others.
What is more, in doing this exercise of identification, do not begin to think that you are equal to God, as did Lucifer and the rebel angels, according to the tradition. Instead, make efforts to sense that it is not you who exist, but that God alone exists, and that the divinity exists within you only in so far as your ceaseless efforts enable it to manifest through your thoughts, your feelings, and your acts.
Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov Daily Meditations 28th July, 2017
By creating mankind in the image of God, the Creator has inscribed upon the soul of all creatures an impression of the divinity. This indelible impression is the cause of the feeling of want and dissatisfaction that all men and women will continue to have, until the day they decide to seek this image within themselves. They will search, they will have experiences – some happy, some not – they will believe that they will finally have a chance at happiness and plenitude, but they will always be disappointed, because they will feel that something essential is still missing.
This disappointment, each time so very painful, is in reality a blessing, because it is what drives the human soul ever forward, looking and searching all the time, in order to come closer to the Beloved, to the Creator, to the universal Spirit and unite it.

There is a video on the Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov youtube channel which also elaborates on the important theme. The video starts with the master revealing that whenever he arrives in a new town he always observes all the men and women he sees in passing and remembers how the universal Spirit dwells in each one and has left its imprint within, thanks to which they are able to reunite with God who is the father and sustainer of all people. This is what makes us all spiritual brothers and sisters.
