One with God


Last night I dreamt Patricia Bow and I were swimming in a blue lagoon (Yes think the movie “The Blue Lagoon 1980”) and after I awoke I lay in bed thinking; these thoughts came to mind:
The Gospel says God and Heaven are within us here and now. God is in everything. The reverse is also true , everything is in God. We are in God as a drop of water is in the sea. As Rumi says, “You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.” Pat and I are one in Christ; we are all one in God (Gal 3:28). Not only are we created in the image of God, we inhabit God now and forever – we never left the Garden of Eden. Everyone both ascends and descends into God. We swim in the vast, warm, comforting lagoon – the warm waters of Love caressing, supporting us, rejoicing in the fellowship, partakers of His heavenly kingdom, at one with our loved ones departed this life in faith and love. God’s Kingdom dwells in our heart and all around us – when you know yourself you know God.

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.
