Yes of course if you wish it to. I've no idea what that "own image" phrase was meant originally to mean, and I don't believe in gods anyway, but the two ideas in the question are not incompatible at all. I have friends who are Christians but their wills and thoughts are as free as anyone's.<br />

No I have free will because I created myself out of god-stuff, as did you. The energy field that exists is not a person. If I am made of it, I am inside of god's image and one-with it at the same time.

I don't believe that we were created in God's image. In fact, I find the concept of a God with human qualities and emotions to be a bit unrealistic.
