Curtis Childs of the Swedenborg Foundation has been cranking out some fantastic videos that illuminate the sometimes dense world of mystic and near-death experiencer Emanuel Swedenborg. Their most recent video tackles the subject of “How Different Religions Coexist in Heaven”. I found Swedenborg’s description of heaven utterly wonderful. Why? Because it echoes — and elaborates on — one of the core truths I’ve been tracking in near-death experiences. Namely, that life is about relationships and the more deeply we are able to form healthy, conscious, loving relationships with the rest of life, the more we are able to experience heaven (inwardly and outwardly; in this world and the next).
