Swedenborg on the Afterlife


Swedenborg Says . . .

When we die, we simply move from one world into another. Heaven and Hell #445
There is an intimate connection between the angelic heaven and the human race. They depend on each other, and heaven without people on earth would be like a house without a foundation. Heaven and Hell #304
Almost all the people who arrive from this world are as astonished as they can be to find that they are alive and that they are just as human as ever. Heaven and Hell #456
Absolutely everything [in heaven] appears in its loveliest springtime and its loveliest bloom, with stunning magnificence and variety. Secrets of Heaven #1622
[In the afterlife] kindred souls gravitate toward each other spontaneously, as it were, for with each other they feel as if they were with their own family … when they are with kindred souls, they enjoy the fullest freedom and find life totally delightful. Heaven and Hell #44
