"Our love is our life itself. What our love is like determines how we live and therefore everything about what we are as human beings." —Emanuel Swedenborg, New Jerusalem 54

One of the most consistent recurring themes throughout Swedenborg’s writings is regeneration, or the process of rebirth and growth as a spiritual person. Explore the principles and process in our latest blog post.

How will it feel to be in the afterlife? Will what we love affect how we feel? Join us, along with author Peter Rhodes, as we read through Swedenborg’s accounts of his spiritual experiences and what he learned through them.

“To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.”
— William Blake, Auguries of Innocence (via thevirtuousgirl)

Swedenborg Minute:

The Stream of Providence

Emanuel Swedenborg wrote that the divine influence on our lives is like the current of a stream, and that acknowledging and trusting that stream can bring us true peace.

“The nearer I approach the end, the clearer I hear around me the immortal symphonies of the worlds which invite me. It is marvelous yet simple. For half a century I have been writing my thoughts in prose, verse, history, drama, romance, tradition, satire, ode and song - I have tried all; but I feel that I have not said a thousandth part of that which is in me. When I go down to the grave I can say like many others, “I have finished my day’s work” but I cannot say, “I have finished my life’s work”; my day’s work will begin the next morning. The tomb is not a blind alley. It is an open thoroughfare. It closes in the twilight to open in the dawn. My work is only beginning; my work is hardly above its foundation. I would gladly see it mounting forever. The thirst for the infinite proves infinity.”
— Victor Hugo
“I am not this hair, I am not this skin, I am the soul that lives within.”
— Rumi (via wscheryl)
“You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.”
— Rumi (via cosmicroots)
“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. ― Rumi”

"There is an intimate union within us of the spiritual and physical worlds."

—Emanuel Swedenborg
