Genesis - Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” 27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” 29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so. 31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.
10 The LORD said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground. 11 Now you are under a curse and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. 12 When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth.” 13 Cain said to the LORD, “My punishment is more than I can bear. 14 Today you are driving me from the land, and I will be hidden from your presence; I will be a restless wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.” 15 But the LORD said to him, “Not so ; anyone who kills Cain will suffer vengeance seven times over.” Then the LORD put a mark on Cain so that no one who found him would kill him. 16 So Cain went out from the LORD’s presence and lived in the land of Nod, east of Eden. 17 Cain made love to his wife, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Enoch. Cain was then building a city, and he named it after his son Enoch.
John 4:24 - God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

You can also say that how happy one person is is dependent on multiple life circumstances...both good and bad. Therefore even if their spirit is good it can be crushed or influenced by societal or economic forces...heck, even governmental forces

Are You familiar with Adamu's first wife, Lilith? Seeing that Lilith got blamed for everything from a husband cheating on the wife to premature ejaculation, maybe it is Her kin?
Once this Self gets tired of 'judging/comparing' then that wind will be at their backs. The time spent trying to figure out if something is "good" or "bad" will be replaced by 'free thinking' this in itself will change the aforementioned "winds" Heck, I can think of a couple things right off the bat that are greatly improved when the wind is at Your back.
#1) Casting a lighter bait. #2) Hitting an iron into a tucked pin. #3) Riding a bicycle.

Don't forget that Hebrew is very prone to using "son of" in a metaphorical sense, meaning "having the nature of".
Thus "sons of Belial", meaning men taking him as a model for their behaviour.
The best example I've seen is "He is going to die", explained in a side-note as a translation of the literal Hebrew "He is a son of death".
is not an offspring of Adam meaning this person has no spirit.
So when Cain was expelled to leave after killing his brother he married a woman who gave birth to a baby boy. So where did this woman come from? It can not be in the image of God because the first was Adam and Cain's wife is not an offspring of Adam meaning this person has no spirit.
