Gloria Gaynor shares her wisdom

Gloria_Gaynor_-_I_Am_Gloria_GaynorAbout a week or two ago I saw Gloria Gaynor being interviewed on TV. She had the hit disco-era song, “I Will Survive.” She was asked what she had learned after all these years. One of her answers perked up my ears.

She said, basically, that she did not know how to judge men.

Gloria lamented that there was no manual available to let her or other women grasp what a good man was. So she apparently made one mistake after another when it came to forming relationships with various men.  It seems that she had tried all kinds of men.

Emanuel Swedenborg would describe this predicament as a spiritual problem. It has to do with the fact that men and women are not connected to their internal natural mind—which has to go through a spiritual meltdown and makeover.

In other words, Gloria was not taught (on this earth) how to identify a male who was preparing to go through such a deep and drastic transformation. It is for this special transformation that the two genders were originally created by the Lord God to offer help to each other. (What could be more intimate than that?)

Swedenborg actually stated that it takes both a man and a woman to form one angel.  I wrote about this in a previous post and was immediately challenged by a strong feminist.

If Swedenborg’s observations about heaven and its angels are correct, then the post-modern world (and its assessment of fairness and justice) is in for a big surprise.

    I am surprised that you didn’t get protests from gays, or those who believe DWM(“Dead white men”) to include ES and His Excellency, General George Washington, are no longer relevant.
