Spiritual Liberation

Enneagram of our liberation from “Egypt”

(Divine Order, the Power of Advancing and the Science of Scripture)

Spiritual LiberationAs I promised in my previous post, here is a small sample of a new New Church revelation.

Above is an organic model of the “science of all sciences,” that is, Emanuel Swedenborg’s “Circle of Life” (also Gurdjieff’s enneagram) showing how the Lord God governs from first principles (aims and ends), through intermediates (causes), to ultimates (results). This diagram maps out the universal divine successive steps forming a holistic and sacred complex (simultaneity) of any full concept.

If you are a follower of Swedenborg’s theological ideas and are not familiar with the diagram above, the reason is that the Arcanum (heavenly secrets) you currently study has not been advanced further “because more must be known whereby an idea of the Divine government from firsts through ultimates may be formed and acquired” (Apocalypse Explained Vol. 1, n 41).

(You have just been given a deeper peek into the theological insights that future generations of Swedenborgians will acquire concerning how all things are held together in connection—forming a model of relational holism through sacred process!)

For those of you wishing to become more familiar with this model of sacred universal process, please look to my award-winning book, Proving God.
