We love therefore we exist


Descartes’ “I think therefore I am” in itself doesn’t prove existence. It is the awareness of “thinking” that proves existence. God created the universe to be aware of Himself. Creation is an act of self love, God is Love. God knows Himself. The tree in the quad exists because God is always aware of it. The question now becomes, what in us is aware of thinking. Who am I? I am more than that mighty oak in the quad.  The Bible tells us that God created us in his own image, Genesis 1:26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness… “ Christians in every land unite in proclaiming that our God eternally exists as FatherSon, and Holy Spirit. So, I am three? There are two answers, both Yes! First, I am a trinity of heart, soul and mind. Second, in Marriage Patricia and I were joined together as one in and by God. Mark 10:9 “What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.“  We are a trinity and shall be forever – Pat, me and our Love and shall be forever One. What proves I exist is the One within me doing the observing, the unity of heart, soul and mind. Pat and I are absolutely real as is her presence within me and we will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

About thebows99krug

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Sonic, a very friendly ginger tabby. My beloved wife died January 7, 2017 and our 19 year old cat Pooka died January 8, 2017. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
