You’ll be hard pressed to find anything of deeper spiritual discussion and truth than this podcast channel. I struggled for years with spiritual truths from the biblical perspective. The vast majority of my confusion has been clear by Curtis and the rest of the staff! Life changing!

Curtis & Jonathan are the perfect commentators and interpreters for 21st-century Swedenborg! They make you laugh, think, and open your mind to a world of possibilities - not only here but in the next life. They make complex subjects simple, and things that are seemingly simple complex and interesting. Swedenborg’s theology has elevated my faith and strengthened my relationship with God. At the very least, it makes for a happier person, and provides a glimpse into the depths of the spiritual world. If you stay open-minded, I’m confident you’ll feel the same! Thank you to all who do this program. As my title says, it’s a life changer. I watch the YouTube channel, but the podcast is great in the morning when I’m getting ready and on the move. For anyone who’s in a spiritual-rut, I can attest that Swedenborg may be the antidote!

“In the spiritual world, all union takes place by means of attentiveness. When anyone there is thinking about someone else because of a desire to talk with her or him, that other person is immediately present. They see each other face to face. The same thing happens when someone is thinking about someone else because of a loving affection, but in this case the result is a union, while in the former case it is only presence. This phenomenon is unique to the spiritual world. The reason is that everyone there is spiritual. It is different in the physical world, where all of us are material. In this physical world, the same thing is happening in the feelings and thoughts of our spirits, but since there is space in this world, while in the spiritual world there only seems to be space, the things that happen in the thoughts of our spirits come out in actions there.” Divine Providence 29

“Angels can recognize the nature of our unique essence on the basis of nothing more than a brief conversation with us. From hearing the tone of our voice angels sense what we love; and from hearing what we say, angels sense our level of understanding.” True Christianity 778

“Because individual thoughts contain so much, just a single word produced by thought reveals to angels what a spirit or a person is like. This too was confirmed by experience. When the mere word truth was spoken (which was done by a large number of spirits one after another), I could instantly hear whether the word was hard, rough, soft, childlike, treasured, innocent, full, empty, unsound, insincere, closed, or open, and to what extent. In short, the actual quality of the underlying thought was audible. And this was only at a general level. What about at the level of detail that angels perceive?” Secrets of Heaven 6623

“When we are being faced with our deeds after death, angels who have been given the task of examining look searchingly into the face and continue their examination through the whole body, beginning with the fingers first of one hand and then of the other and continuing through the whole. When I wondered why this was so, it was explained to me. The reason is that just as the details of our thought and intention are inscribed on our brains because that is where their beginnings are, so they are inscribed on the whole body as well, since all the elements of our thought and intention move out into the body from their beginnings and take definition there in their outmost forms...” Heaven and Hell 463

“Truth is the form of good, that is to say, when good is formed so as to be perceived intellectually.” Secrets of Heaven 3409

“We may gather how great angels' wisdom is from the fact that in heaven there is a communication that involves everyone. The intelligence and wisdom of one individual is shared with another: heaven is where everyone shares everything of value. This is because the very nature of heavenly love is to want what is one's own to belong to another; so no one in heaven regards his or her good as authentically good unless it is someone else's as well. This is also the basis of heaven's happiness. Angels are led into it by the Lord, whose divine love has this same quality. I have also been granted knowledge, by experience, of this kind of communication in the heavens. Once some simple people were taken up into heaven, and after they had arrived, they arrived also at an angelic wisdom. They understood things they could not grasp before and said things they could not express in their former state.” Heaven and Hell 268

Curious about life's greatest mysteries? This Swedenborg and Life original series seeks to find answers about this life from the afterlife. In this episode, host Curtis Childs from the Swedenborg Foundation and featured guests take ten questions from viewers and provide insights with the help of eighteenth-century scientist and mystic Emanuel Swedenborg’s spiritual writings.

This is an audio-only version of video-based show, and the podcast may contain references to visuals from the original episode. Watch this episode on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jb-7BX0ctoI

Ten original viewer questions featured in this episode:

  1. Do our pets learn like us in the afterlife, as in their souls continue to learn like we do? Does the animal in the afterlife have to remain an animal? Can they become an angel?

  2. What's the correspondence of a desert?

  3. If my soulmate moved to the next life, will we be together again when I move on the next life?

  4. Why can you fall asleep and have a 3 minute dream, but is seems like hours?

  5. I’ve been reading a lot of Tillich lately, and find many of his ideas resemble Swedenborg’s to the letter. What other kinds of outside validations for Swedenborg’s ideas and theology is out there?

  6. If everybody that loves the same thing are placed together, does that mean we will be grouped with family members since everyone in the same family are basically raised the same way?

  7. Does Swedenborg talk about eating animals?

  8. What is the judgment for people who use bombs etc. (to blow up themselves) and to kill others?

  9. What is the spiritual significance to the color green? Do colors have meanings?

  10. Without suffering, is it possible to be spiritually mature?

The Presence of Other Worlds: http://www.swedenborg.com/product/the-presence-of-other-worlds

"This is so that we can be reformed and saved, for without freedom there can be no reformation or salvation…. The reason we cannot be reformed unless we have some freedom is that we are born into evils of all kinds, evils which need to be taken away if we are to be saved. They cannot be taken away unless we see them within ourselves, admit that they are there, then refuse them and ultimately turn away from them. Only then are they taken away. This cannot happen unless we are exposed to both good and evil, since it is from good that we can see evils, though we cannot see what is good from evil….” Heaven and Hell 597-598

“...all in hell, how many soever they may be, when viewed in the ordinary light of heaven, appear like each other, and also speak alike, so that you would believe them to be one and the same person, when yet they are innumerable…”
Spiritual Experiences 4584

“When [evil spirits] are applied, then they induce agony of the spirit, by means of tedium, which they increase and inspire continually, and thus they add impatience, which begets the greatest suffering and induces such weakness of body that [the man] can scarce raise himself from bed. This was shown me by this means: when they were present, such a weakness took possession of [me], and when they were removed, it ceased, in proportion as they were removed. They also employ many arts, so as to infuse weariness and thence weakness." -Spiritual Experiences 4587

“Evil spirits stir up our falsities and evil, as mentioned. From our memory they stir up everything we have ever considered or committed since childhood. Evil spirits are able to do this with such consummate skill and malice that words cannot describe it.” Secrets of Heaven 751

"While I was going to bed the evil spirits overhead attacked with a plan to destroy me, deliberating to call forth against me all of hell, and all evil and treacherous spirits whatsoever…. It also seemed as if I were being let down among them—for otherwise they were overhead, in fantasy lifting me up into their midst, so that I was now surrounded by them…. When they had clung for some time to these fantasies, perpetrating whatever they were able, while I lay in safety, fearing nothing, only reflecting on the things they were up to, finally upon realizing the fruitlessness of their effort, they withdrew, admitting that it was of no use." -Spiritual Experiences 3851

"Spirits complained that they could no longer be present. Because I was abiding in the higher knowledge of faith, it was not permitted to entertain objections. They said that then they have nothing by which they can lead—saying also, by which they can mislead—for by their objections they very much mislead mankind." -Spiritual Experiences 3614

“These combats are carried on by means of truths of faith which are from the Word. We must fight against evils and falsities from these; if we fight from anything else, we do not conquer, because the Lord is not in anything else.” -Secrets of Heaven 8962

Rank #16: 10 Questions: Psychopaths, Miracles, and Effective Prayer

Podcast cover
Read more

Curious about life's greatest mysteries?
This Swedenborg and Life original series seeks to find answers about this life from the afterlife.
Click below on Show More for full episode description, free book downloads, and contact info.

In this episode, host Curtis Childs from the Swedenborg Foundation and featured guests take ten questions from viewers and provide insights with the help of eighteenth-century scientist and mystic Emanuel Swedenborg’s spiritual writings.

Ten original viewer questions featured in this episode:

  1. If it's the Lord's desire for all of us to be saved and happy forever, how does that work with the inner nature in all of us that Swedenborg says cannot be changed? (We are same forever?)
  2. How old was Swedenborg when his visions started?
  3. Can evil spirits act through people, psychopaths for instance? Those who seek to intentionally harm us?
  4. How do you connect with the Lord when you don't feel he is winning and your mind and your ego tells you hell is stronger?
  5. What is meant by the meek shall inherit the earth?
  6. Based on Swedenborg's view, what kind of prayer can be considered the best or the most effective prayer? What is the best time, place, words, and method for prayer?
  7. Some religions believe in miracles, but do miracles really come from heaven and do these inhibit the divine design or what a person is supposed to follow?; What about being able to have “supernatural” powers? Are the miracles of Jesus possible to do by anyone? Always so curious about magic etc.
  8. Was Swedenborg a follower of Jesus Christ? He refers to the Lord, but I wonder how he viewed Christ.
  9. I love that you have shared that Swedenborg said not to judge others' paths. Yet I find myself judging myself very harshly as I try to become more spiritual. Any thoughts on this?
  10. Why is it that you sometimes meet someone that you have never met before but yet you feel as though you know them? Is this to do with your past life?

Rank #17: How Spirits Talk

Podcast cover
Read more

Full of wisdom and much more efficient than earth language. Let’s explore angelic language…In this episode, host Curtis Childs guides us through 18th-century philosopher Emanuel Swedenborg’s recorded spiritual explorations and revelations to see what they can tell us about how spirits talk. Swedenborg said of angels: “Their love and wisdom unite in speech. As a result, it is so full of wisdom that they can in a single word express what we cannot say in a thousand words.”
