Why Don’t Those Who’ve Died Communicate With Us More? — Swedenborg and Life



If people’s spirits live on after their bodies die, why don’t they come back daily and talk to everyone they love? Why do some people get visited by a loved one who has passed on while others don’t? Join us, along with Dr. Jonathan Rose as we discuss Swedenborg’s accounts of his spiritual experiences and what he learned through them.

Topics include:

-The Divine Design
-The Importance of Life on Earth
-Things Were Meant to be Different

“There are three heavens, very clearly distinguished from each other. There is a central or third heaven, an intermediate or second one, and an outmost or first. These follow in sequence and are interdependent, like the highest part of the human body, the head; the middle, or torso; and the lowest, or feet…The deeper levels of the human mind and disposition are in a similar pattern as well. We have a central, intermediate, and outmost nature. This is because when humanity was created the whole divine design was gathered into it, to the point that as to structure, the human being is the divine design and is therefore a heaven in miniature.” -HH 29-30

“The heavenly kingdom is the third and deepest heaven. The spiritual kingdom is the second or middle heaven…people in the heavenly kingdom, have love for the Lord at their core and charitable feelings toward their neighbor on the outside. People in the spiritual kingdom, though, have charitable feelings toward their neighbor at their core and a faith resulting from charity on the outside. Clearly, then, charity toward one’s neighbor forms the bond between the two kingdoms. The heavenly kingdom ends with it, and the spiritual kingdom begins with it….so each takes up where the other leaves off.” – AC 5922

“There are three inner levels of every angel and spirit, and of every person here as well. The people whose third level has been opened are in the central heaven, while the people whose second or first only has been opened are in the intermediate or the outmost heaven. The deeper levels are opened by our acceptance of divine good and divine true gifts.” -HH 33

“People who are actually affected by divine true gifts and let them directly into their lives-into their intentions and therefore into act-are in the central or third heaven…people who do not let such gifts directly into their intentions, but into their memory and from there into their discernment, intending and doing them as a result of this process, are in the intermediate or second heaven. People who live good moral lives, though, and believe in the Divine with no particular interest in learning, are in the outmost or first heaven.” -HH 33
