  1. Hi!

    You dropped a comment for me on Celia´s blog:
    “Death does not exist. Our leaving this body is instantaneous, so much so, we may not even realize we have left. I get these ideas from Emanuel Swedenborg and the NDE accounts I have read, plus Hinduism and Buddhism.”

    I m glad you are acqainted with Swedenborg. I have studied him thoroughly and despite that his books are sometimes tediously written and rather incoherent, I feel a very special nearness to him…- especially since I am based in Stockholm. He is indeed one of the most outstanding Swedes – in my opinion the most interesting. And imagine that: He is totally ignored in Sweden. Not even the educated people take his books seriously.

    Did you know that he anticipated his death with accurate precision?

    • Hi Julie. No I did not know he had predicted his death. Although it doesn’t surprise me as many enlightened people make the same announcements. And yes it is amazing to me how he has been marginalized and ignored in church history. Are you familiar with the Swedenborgian websites in America? And his books are rather dense at times so I find his interpreters much easier to understand.

      • Hi David.

        Just to let you know that my name is Julien, 🙂

        Indeed he has been so marginalized and ignored in church history that it is almost a blasphemy to mention him.

        At some point years ago, I was a member in the Swedenborgian Society in Stockholm. Åpart from that, i am not familiar with any websites in America. Are you?…

        It is very interesting to take into account that he was quite a known scientist till he was 52, at which point he began his transition to being a seer.

        It´s funny: when i refer to him, I do it as it he is someone I know personally 🙂

  2. Here are a couple of sites, Lee Woofenden has some great and knowledgeable insights here on WordPress. And This is a facebook page I just looked up and the Swedenborg House of studies. I get the daily inspiration which has a quote a day.

    I have stopped reading him but have been greatly influenced by what I have read and things keep popping into my head as i write and think. It must be the angels keeping me on track and informed. I did spend about a year attending one of his churches in San Diego, California.
