Love is forever!

Our physical lives are the wick and tallow for the flame revealing the Kingdom of God. Only God can be a burning bush in the wilderness burning but never consumed. “Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.” (Rabindranath Tagore) Our soul during our time on earth is the candle flame inside us, seeking the Kingdom of God. After our physical death we discover that all along we have been inside it – not God with in but us within God, part of the Great “I am” – a ripple in the Ocean spiralling outward to become the wave bursting over the shore. We are the sum total of all we have thought and felt and done and LOVED.  God is Love.  I don’t fear death so much as I fear its prologues: loneliness, decrepitude, pain, debilitation, depression, senility. But then I realize my beloved is there within me she lights the darkness, sees the dawn for me until I too will see the dawn. ‘Maybe you are searching among the branches, for what only appears in the roots.’  As Pat wrote: “… beneath the grass and stone intertwined their roots have grown so intimately webbed together, neither one can tell his own. And so with us… “We are entwined with God and still with each other. Love is 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.
