I wish women would give more intimate details about their bras on Facebook!

Women advertising on Facebook the size, color or style of the bra that they are wearing on any particular day just doesn’t go far enough for me. I personally want to be aroused by something much more intimate, revealing and daring.

Have I (TheGodGuy) suddenly dropped down to the level of most terrestrial and grunting men? Am I focusing my attention on something other than my wife?

Heck no! My desire to get a closer “peek” comes from sincere spiritually curiosity. I seek an innocent and angelic view of the undergarments a woman is wearing.

No such thing as an angelic view you say? Sure there is. I am talking about spiritual bras!

According to theologian Emanuel Swedenborg, clothing—spiritually understood—represents the truth and knowledge that invests and adorns the inner qualities of one’s love and heart. In other words, an angel’s spiritual clothes are all the noble ideas which dress-up the human heart according to its disposition.

One’s truth (spiritual knowledge) becomes one’s fashion statement in heaven. Truth and knowledge clothe the soul. So, spiritually speaking, we wear what we believe. “Undergarments” symbolize the inmost layer and more delicate fabric of the deepest truth and concepts that gussy up an individual’s faith-system—cherished ideas that lie closest to the soul.

Spiritually speaking, a woman’s breast (and breastfeeding) symbolizes spiritual teaching. Love nurtures. A mother’s love opens up and feeds the child’s mind to have a curiosity and thirst for knowledge later in life. This can eventually turn into a desire to learn God’s truth.

Therefore an “angelic bra” represents the inmost heavenly knowledge that gives support to this kind of instruction and heartfelt desire to nurture.

So when I say want to know more about the type of “spiritual bra” a woman is wearing on a particular day, I simply desire to know the qualities of God’s Wisdom she holds closest to her heart (breast) and soul—the deepest view of her faith. And that is about as intimate as you can get with another (without committing a transgression)!

Swedenborg discovered that all reference to garments in God’s Holy Word symbolized the spiritual qualities and fabric of the characters involved. For instance, after the Lord’s crucifixion the Roman soldiers could only cast lots and divvy up Jesus’ outer garments (Matthew 27:35). The sacred symbolism behind this event of casting lots for the Lord’s outer garments directly addresses the deeper meanings of the Word, which remain protected even when the literal message is being divided up into the doctrines and theologies of different Christian denominations from worldly reasoning (a theological crap shoot)! According to Swedenborg the reason why there are so many Christian denominations today is that each has divided up and taken their own doctrines, from a materialistic and worldly interpretation of the Holy Word from its literal sense (outer clothing).

So ladies, if you want to attract men with true spiritual depth, be prepared. They will want to know what your soul is wearing today!
