Swedenborg Passage: Heavenly Secrets #276

 Bread means everything of a spiritual or heavenly character, which is food for
the angels. If they were deprived of it, they could not live, any more than
a person deprived of bread or food can. The heavenly and spiritual things
existing in heaven also correspond to the bread on earth. Moreover they
are represented by bread, as can be seen in many passages.
The Lord is bread because everything heavenly or spiritual comes
from him, as he teaches in John:
This is the bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this
bread will live forever. (John 6:58)
In consequence, bread and wine are symbols in the Holy Supper. This
heavenly aspect was represented by the manna as well [Exodus 16:4–31].
The fact that heavenly and spiritual things are angels’ food is also clear
from the Lord’s words:
Humankind shall not live on bread alone but on every word coming
out of God’s mouth. (Matthew 4:4)
That is, humankind is to live on the Lord’s life, the source of every heavenly and spiritual quality.

Swedenborg Passage: Secrets of Heaven §150

Our condition when we rely on ourselves or when we think we live by our own power can be compared to slumber or unconsciousness. The people of old actually called that condition slumber, and the Word speaks of it as “being flooded with a spirit of slumber” [Isaiah 29:10] and “sleeping a sleep” [Jeremiah 51:39, 57].

 

The truth that human selfhood is inherently dead, that none of us has any life on his own, is demonstrated in the world of spirits by vivid experience-so vivid that evil spirits, who love nothing but selfhood or a sense of autonomy and obstinately insist that they live independently, become convinced and admit that life is not theirs after all.

 

I more than any other have been given the opportunity in the last several years to see what “human autonomy” amounts to, finding as I have that not a single one of my thoughts originated in me. I have been able to perceive with utmost clarity that every component idea in my thinking has come from outside, and sometimes I have seen where it came from and how it entered.

 

Therefore those who suppose they live by their own power have it wrong. By believing that they live independently, they adopt all possible evil and falsity as their own, and this they would never do if they believed the situation to be as it really is.

Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, 
But whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on His law day and night. 
 
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season 
And whose leaf does not wither, for the Lord watches over the way of the righteous.

Swedenborg Passage: Secrets of Heaven §904

     The Lord talks to every individual, because anything good or true that a person wills or thinks comes from the Lord. We each have at least two evil spirits and two angels with us. The evil spirits stir up our evils, but the angels inspire goodness and truth. Everything good or true that the angels inspire in us is the Lord’s, so the Lord is constantly talking to us. He talks very differently, though, to one person than to another. With those who allow themselves to be swept up by evil spirits, the Lord speaks like one absent or far away, so that he can barely be said to speak at all. But with those whom he leads, the Lord speaks more directly. The fact that no one can ever think anything good or true except by the Lord’s power makes this sufficiently clear.

Swedenborg Passage: Secrets of Heaven #1197

 

 The ancient church used the label of Philistine for all those who talked and talked about faith and about the idea that salvation is found in faith and yet completely failed to live a life of faith. For this reason, Philistines more than any others were also described as uncircumcised, meaning that they lacked charity. (For passages that refer to them as uncircumcised, see 1 Samuel 14:6; 17:26, 36; 31:4; 2 Samuel 1:20; and other places.)
These people by nature could not help turning religious knowledge into a matter of memorization. The knowledge of spiritual and heavenly realities and even the mysteries of faith become nothing more than objects of memory when the people who are adept at them have no love for others. Memorized details are dead objects to us unless we live according to them as a matter of conscience. When we do, then as soon as something becomes part of our memory it also becomes part of our life. That is when it first becomes something in us that remains useful to us and our salvation after physical life ends. Neither secular nor religious knowledge
means anything to us in the other life—even if we have learned all the secrets that have ever been revealed—unless it permeates our life.
