Continuation on Influx and the Intercourse of the Soul and Body: Arcana Coelestia 6598-6626

AC 6608…The light of understanding has been given to me, taken away, lessened, and moderated when I have been thinking, speaking, and writing.

AC 6604…They are closer at one time to one community, at another time to another community, and when they are in among one community, all the other communities are off to the sides; and so on with every variation within those limits.

AC 6605…For the image of heaven as a whole imprints itself on communities and makes them similar to itself, and not only on communities but also on the individual persons within a community. This is where the individuals get their human form from, for each person in an angelic community is heaven in the smallest form it takes.

AC 6599…It is now necessary to say how the case is with thought and its ideas, namely, that the thought diffuses itself into the societies of spirits and of angels round about, and that the capacity to understand and perceive is according to the extension into these societies, that is, according to the influx from them; and in the next place that there are countless things in one idea of thought, and still more in one thought composed of ideas.

AC 6620… in every idea which is from the Lord, there is an image of the whole heaven, because it is from Him who is heaven.

Third Round posts are short audio clips taken from Round 3 comments offered in the online Logopraxis Life Group meetings. The aim is to keep the focus on understanding the Text in terms of its application to the inner life along with reinforcing any key Logopraxis principles that have been highlighted in the exchanges.

    I wonder if the idea of an insight being ‘forgotten’ because of us being in contact with a different society, can be applied outside life groups as well? i.e where ever we have shifting states?
    Im just thinking of the common experience of a person losing their train of thought.

      My sense is that everything that happens in a life group happens outside of the group, the difference is that in a life group we are given a condition that supports the potential for a greater degree of directed attention.

        Thanks. The next time I forget what I was going to say, Im going to see if I am aware of a change of state…
