Quote: Emanuel Swedenborg

Quote: Emanuel Swedenborg

Mar 02


“Let it be known that the life that leads to heaven is not one of withdrawal from the world but a life in the world, and that a life of piety apart from a life of thoughtfulness (which is possible only in the world) does not lead to heaven at all. Rather, it is a life of thoughtfulness, a life of behaving honestly and fairly in every duty, every affair, every task, from our deeper nature and therefore from a heavenly source.”

Emanuel Swedenborg, Heaven and Hell 353
