Facts are many, but the truth is one.

We seek God as an individual because we were taught he is  the unity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as three persons in one Godhead. And from John: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” God is life itself; He is that Light. In the Near Death Experience, He is that light we see at the end of the tunnel. In T.S. Eliot’s ” we have lingered in the chambers of the sea, sea-girls wreathed in seaweed red and brown. Till human voices wake us and we drown.” He is that sea of chambers. We live as one chamber of God, one packet of light reaching to the light at the end of the tunnel. We are part of the Oneness of all life. It is not so much us becoming one with each other and God but us becoming one with everything. Just like “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was God.” Yes God is everything and we are one with Him and everything. Pope Gregory wrote in Dialogues; ” Anyone who has seen a little of the light of the creator finds all of creation small, because the innermost hidden place of the mind is opened up by that light and is so much expanded in God it stands above the world. In Fact, the soul that sees this is ever raised above itself in the light of God.” After the death of a loved one we have become so attuned over a lifetime with her to her presence that we just know and feel that Presence nearby – two hermits as one together forever. As Rabindranath Tagore said “Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.” Anyone who does not love does not know God, because “God is love” 4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 Corinthians 13 4-7

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.
