I seemed to be on a campus going up in an elevator. The door opened and there was Pat waiting for me. I was expected. The building was all glass and I could see banks of clouds over mountains, steep forests, dark valleys, and bright golden blinding light every where even the ocean waves were bright with light. It seemed a heavenly version of Pat’s beloved rock-bound Nova Scotia Coast surrounded this campus. It was the Kingdom: nothing superstitious or mythological but everything superstitious and mythological! And then there was my beloved Patricia! She was like lightning, her clothes if indeed she was clothed were an illusion of nakedness as if her spirit were shining through. “This too can be you,” she whispered, “we have yet to do the exam. Hurry, hurry, we shouldn’t be late.”
As we began to climb the staircase before us. I lost her. I was the stranger here and I should have taken her hand. In panic I ran up and up until I came to a registrar’s office. “Am I late? Is she here!” “No and yes go in and see.” There she was she had prepared a desk beside her just for me. “We become truly one here that is why I waited by the elevator for you.” Passed and graduated to the Heavenly ONE. What needs could we have now that we have each other and God? We are now complete. We are One with each other and Love Himself. Never lonely again. We have begun our journey in Paradise.
And so, I awoke!
