ACV6S24 Melinda #…”that which is real and that which is not real. One is distinguished from the other by the fact that everything seen by those in heaven is real, whereas everything seen by those in hell is not real. Whatever comes from the Divine, that is, from the Lord, is real since it comes from the Essential Being (Esse) itself within things and from self-existent Life; but whatever comes from a spirit’s proprium is not real since it does not come from the Essential Being (Esse) within things nor from self-existent Life. Those who have an affection for goodness… Read more »

4623 …whatever comes from a spirit’s proprium is not real since it does not come from the Essential Being (Esse) within things nor from self-existent Life 4623.2 …insofar as evil desires and false notions exist with [my] spirits, every thought they ha[ve] [i]s nothing else than an illusion. WORK FOCUS: Recall this teaching, view my state and call a spade a spade insofar as it’s possible. SUBMISSION: Every time I remembered this teaching a wonderful, light freedom descended. In that state there was nothing to loose. A couple of times when with others, on and off as I recalled the… Read more »

ACV6S 24-Len #4633….”in the next life everyone’s life, and consequently everyone’s affection, are in full view..” Task: To constantly remind myself of the truth that my “life” is in full view in the next life. Observations: I became much more aware of the truth that I can hide my inner thoughts from everyone. The Lord has given me this provision of anonymity while we are here and I’m very thankful. My problem is I don’t think I will have sorted out my poor choices of thoughts before my times up here. Yours Len

4623. But it should be recognized that with spirits the life of their senses is of two different kinds – that which is real and that which is not real. One is distinguished from the other by the fact that everything seen by those in heaven is real, whereas everything seen by those in hell is not real. Whatever comes from the Divine, that is, from the Lord, is real since it comes from the Essential Being (Esse) itself within things and from self-existent Life; but whatever comes from a spirit’s proprium is not real since it does not come… Read more »

AC463 From all that has been stated about perceptions and also odours it is evident that in the next life everyone’s life, and consequently everyone’s affection, are in full view. Anyone therefore who thinks that his previous character and consequently his present life are not known there, or that he is able to conceal his intentions as he could in the world, is much mistaken. In that life also not only the things that a person recognizes in himself are in full view but also those he does not recognize, namely those which through his repeated use of them come… Read more »

4628. To continue what has been said about the odours into which spheres associated with perceptions are converted, one smells them as plainly as odours on earth. But they do not enter the sensory awareness of anyone whose interiors are closed, because they come in by an internal route, not by an external one. These odours have two different origins, namely the perception of good and the perception of evil. Those originating in the perception of good are most pleasing, being like the perfume from fragrant flowers in a garden, and from other fragrancies, and are indescribably lovely as well… Read more »

4626. When any spirit is approaching, even though still a long way off and out of sight, his presence is detected, as often as the Lord allows it to be, from a certain kind of spiritual sphere. From that sphere one recognizes what his life is like, what his affection is like, and what his faith is like. Angelic spirits with keener perception know from his sphere countless things about the state of his life and faith, as has been demonstrated to me many times. Task All around people is an energetic sphere that can pick up emanations from surroundings… Read more »

4622[3] There is something further to be said on this matter, namely that it is not the body which sees, hears, smells, and feels through touch, but a person’s spirit. That being so, when the spirit sheds its body it retains the sensory powers it possessed when within the body; indeed these are now far keener. For that which belongs to the body, being gross compared with that belonging to the spirit, has blunted those sensory powers; and these have been made even blunter because of the person’s immersion of them in earthly and worldly interests. [2] Even so, the… Read more »

4623…[3] Let people therefore be on their guard when they enter the next life, so that they are not deceived; for evil spirits know all kinds of ways to deceive the eyes of those recently arrived there from the world. Or if they are unable to delude them, those evil spirits nevertheless try by means of their deceptions to convince recent arrivals that nothing is real but that all things, including those in heaven, are no more than mental abstractions. 4627…[3] After this I saw some other spirits who were cast down from there and were scattered in all directions.… Read more »

This reading was about the sense of smell in the Grand Man. Those in this province are in “perception.” I connected this idea with No 4633 where it states that in the other life spirits perceive the life and affections of other spirits – as “in plain view.” We can’t hide who we are – and even the things which we have not known about ourselves are evident. The work focus for this session is to make note of what hidden thoughts and feelings that I have that are, or would become, manifest in the next life? Hiding these thoughts… Read more »

Arcana Coelestia #4622. “If men would only believe that their interior essence is the spirit, and that the body and its sensations and members are adapted to uses in this world merely, and that the spirit and its sensations and organs are adapted to uses in the other life, then from themselves and almost of their own accord they would come into ideas about the state of their spirit after death, for they would reflect that the spirit must be the man himself who thinks ,and who desires, longs for things, and is affected with them….” Task: To try to… Read more »

AC 4622:3 “Indeed he would deduce that the power of understanding is nothing else than a keener sensory awareness of interior things, a more superior power of understanding being a sensory awareness of spiritual realities.”
When the proprium is in control, try to ask the Lord’s help in ignoring my natural ‘perception’, which interprets things so very incorrectly. Pray for the senses of the internal man to moderate my responses.

Val: AC 4633 In that life also not only the things that a person recognizes in himself are in full view but also those he does not recognize, namely those which through his repeated use of them come at length to be immersed among the delights of his life; for in that case they fade from his view and reflection about himself. Task: To try to see my whole inner life in full view in order to become aware of any inner falsities or evils that have become invisible to me, so that I can ask the Lord to help… Read more »

AC 4633, From what has now been said on the subject of perceptions and odors, it is manifest that in the other life everyone’s life, and consequently everyone’s affection, is in plain view; and therefore anyone who believes that his previous character, and the consequent quality of his life, is unknown there, or that he can there hide his disposition as in this world, is much mistaken. Moreover, not only are those things seen there which a man has known about himself, but also those which he has not known, namely, such things as by frequent practice he has at… Read more »
