Spiritual Experiences#4199


4199. But of these spirits there are many kinds, and many species, there being indeed also some who had loved the world, but who had not at the same time made the delight of their life to consist in the acquisition of its goods - these are not at once eager to return to it. There are also others who had loved the world, but are kept in a state of sleep until worldly delight has also fallen asleep, so that they have forgotten the world. These are simple spirits, and indeed, good ones. 1749, 3 April. 1
