I am who I am


To be joined as one in marriage by God means there is another who I am one with as I am one with myself; as I love myself so too do, I love her. Yes, Patricia and I were one. Two individuals yet of one substance, essence or nature.
If you see only the physical, you are not complete; there is far more to life than can be proved by science. We are a spiritual being dwelling in a temporary physical body. When you find your soulmate surely you see that life is about something more than the physical and you stop trying to seek a life grounded in the physical. You are a spiritual being and far more than the rational scientist living a material life.
Patricia was right when she mused that we do not die. Our soul is energy and energy can not be destroyed. Pat said her body was not her, she was much more than what she left behind. We are not there in that dead body, but we are still somewhere aware that we still live. We are that which is aware; the “I am” doing the seeing. Remember energy is just there; it has no beginning and no end. Energy always existed and cannot be destroyed. It is only scientists that name it energy; it is the “I am what I am” of Exodus 3:14. It is God everywhere animating life, being aware of himself, being Everything.
To know yourself is to know God. To know God is to know Everything. We are created in God’s image. We share God’s name. We also are “I am what I am”!
Death and resurrection, God and us, are where marriage must be leading. I have come to this idea over the two years since my beloved Patricia died. Pat is reborn, resurrected as light. She still dwells within me. She is everywhere all around me as well as within me. I know what she knows. We are Adam and Eve, every married couple are, two individuals united by God into one forever.
I am Pat; Pat is me! We are one in God forever. Not only one in my dreams, she and I are One in Heart, Soul, Mind and God! We are who we are!

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.
