we are now getting down to “brass tacks” as they say.
the “brass taks” is the “state of heaven in man “is the conjunction of good and truth in him” in other words – ignorance “must finally be addressed” and what “s” ignorance? and why is it to pervasive in our world where “free people” opt to put in a position of power a first class DEGENERATE – donald trump is a first class degenerate according to his “rap sheet” which has been published throughout the known world.
every “moral code” was attempted to be broken by mr donald trump – according to what I have read – of course, this was completely “overlooked” by the people that “voted for him” –
DID THE GERMANS “NOT” VOTE FOR ADOLPH HITLER? OF COURSE THEY DID AND WHAT HAPPENED?
can people be trusted? of course not! so what’s to be?
what’s to be is the “lessons that must be learned by reading the “wowrks” of dr swedenborg – thru my interpretations of his main work, Heaven and Hell.
we are now in the Hell aspect of the book where people like donald trump’s immorality is “put on the grill”- along with his followers of course – their ego put mr trump in office; he promises of course; promises is ego of course –
THEY BOUGHT HIS IMMORALITY/LIES/PROMISES etc. like any damn fool would do of course – they are now kidding their ass for voting for him!
THEY DESERVE WHAT THEY GOT! THEY GOT A TRUMP!
again, “the state of heaven in man is the CONJUNCTION OF GOOD AND TRUTH IN HIM: AND THE sstate of hell is the conjunction is hell in hi.m.
so to make it simple: “whenever good in a man-spirit is “conjoined” with falsity he comes into hell, becassse that conjunction is HELL IN HIM.
good and truth go together; and understanding and the will go together.
how does understanding and the will, being the same thing as good and truth, being in conjunction that IS EFFECTED IN THE WORLD OF SPIRITS.
PEOPLE LIKE TRUMP MUST PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE FOLLOWING WORDS:
good and truth go together , like understanding and will go together.
there cannot be good without truth and truth without good, no chance!
the understandign receives truth and is formed out of them, and the will receives goods and is formed oiut of them.
therefor whatever a man understans and thinks form his understanding he calls true, and whaatever a man wills and thinks from is will he calls good.
from THIS UNDERSTANDING MAN CAN THINK AND THUS PERCEIVE
BOT WHAT IS true and what is good; and et he thinks what is true and good from the will “only” when he wills it and does it.!
when he wills it and from willing does it it is both in his understand and in his will, consequently in the man. For neither the understanding alone nor the will alone makes the man, but the understanding and will together; therefore whatever is in both is in the man, and is appropriated to him.
That which is in the understanding alone is in man and yet NOT really in him; it is only a thing of his memory, or a matter of knowledge in his memory about which he can think when in company with others and outside of himsself, but not in himself; that is, about which he can speak and reason, and can simulatae affections and gestures that are in accord with it.
that is quite a paragraph. It gives “credence to my beliefs that dealt with what this paragraph is all about.
it corroboraated as said “my belief” in this regard – upheld it of course
when at times, the subject had to be addressed.
it again objectified my “belief” – until this very moment; it was only a belief, but with what i just read, it goes far beyond “just belief”
I had this contention with a good friend of mine years ago – until now
i did not have “proof of my belief” the doctor supplied that proof righ this moment in time. wow!
this ability to think from the undderstanding and NOT at the same time from the WILL is provided that man may be capable of being reformed, for reformation is effected by “means of truths, and truths pertain to the understanding, as said.
for in respect to his will MAN IS BORN INTO EVERY EVIL, and therefore of himself wills good TO NO ONE BUT HIMSELF; and one who wills good to himself alone DELIGHTS IN THE MISFORTUNES THAT BEFALL ANOTHER< ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY TEND TO HIS OWN ADVANTAGE;
for in respect to his will man is born INTO EVERY EVIL, therefore good to himselfe alone delights in the misfortunes that befall another, especially when they tend to his own advantage; for his wish is to divert to himslef, the gods of all others, whether honors or riches,, and so far as he succeeds in this he inwardly rejoices.
to the end, ths will of man may be corrected and reformed, an ability to think truths with his understanding, and to speak them and do them.
take this to heart: UNTIL MAN IS SUCH ATHAT HE WILLS TRUTHS AND DOES THEM FROM HIMSELF, THAT IS, FROM THE HEART, HE IS NOT ABLE TO THINK TRUTHS FROM HIS WILL
WHEN HE BECOMES SUCH, WHATEVER HE THINKS FROM HIS UNDERSTANDING BELONGS TO HIS FAITH, AND WHATEVER HE THINKS FROM HIS WILL BELONGS TO HIS LOVE; AND IN CONSEQUENCE HIS FAITH AND HIS LOVE, LIKE HIS UNDERSTANDING AND HIS WILL, ARE CONJOINE IN “HIM”.
ON THE OTHER HAND, JUST TO THE EXTENT THAT THE FALSITIES OF THE UNDERSTANDING AND THE EVILS OF THE WILL ARE “CONJOINED MAN HAS HELL IN HIMSSELF” SINCE THE CONJUNCTION OF FALSITY AND EVIL IS HELL.
TO THE EXTENT THAT THE FALSITIES OF THE UNDERSTANDING AND THE EVILS OF THE WILL ARE CONJOINED MAN HAS “HELL IN HIMSSELF,” SINCE THE CONJUNCTION OF FALSITY AND EVIL IN HELL.
BUT SO LONG AS THE TRUTHS OF THE UNDERSTANDING AND THE GOODS OF THE WILL ARE “NOT” CONJOINED MAN IS IN AN INTERMEDIATE STATE.
AT THE PRESENT TIME NEARLY EVERYONE IS IN AN INTERMEDIATE STATE.
NEARLY EVERYONE IS IN SUCH A STATE THAT HE HAS “SOME KNOWLEDGE OF TRUTHS, AND FROM HIS KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING GIVES “SOME THOUIGHT TO THEM, AND CONFORMS TO THEM EITHER MUCH OR LITTLE OR NOT AT ALL, OR ACTS CONTRARY TO THEM FROM A LOVE OF EVIL AND CONSEQUENT FALSE BELIEF.
