Swedenborg says that the Lord is the sun of heaven, and like the natural sun of our world shines on everyone, good or evil. What matters, then, is our state: If we turn ourselves toward the Lord, we can get the full dose of His light (wisdom) and warmth (love); if we turn away from Him we cast ourselves into cold and shadow - we turn ourselves toward hell.

In the Bible, thern, “turning” generally refers to a change in spiritual state, as people turn themselves toward the Lord or away from the Lord.
