What is the connection between human attributes and divine ones? What practices might help one to achieve divine attributes?

Still water, still mind

In the vast watery expanse of my thoughts, thus did I mind.

With the heat of austerities the thought-world expanded,
The vaporous world brought vast expanses between thoughts,
The expanses grew to infinite gaps between thoughts,
Out of the gaps emerged pure existence.

With chanting and meditation the choppy waters calmed down,
The waves abated and held their flow,
In the stillness was reflected pure consciousness.

With selflessness, the endlessly changing thoughts were frozen,
Time ceased and restlessness was made imaginary,
In that frozen moment only bliss remained.
