Is man animal or spiritual?

When reading about the recent assassination attempt today on Egypt’s interior minister, the question came to mind: is man animal or spiritual?

My prayer went something like this:

Man is not violent; Man does not crave material power; Man is not destructive.
The true Man that God created in His image is infinite, spiritual, compassionate, meek and loves his neighbor as himself.

As the human consciousness wakes up to who we really are spiritually and who our Father-Mother Creator is, we will feel satisfied, whole and complete. Acts of violence, such as this one, will then no longer be possible because man could not have the desire to hurt or injure another.
