Chapter XXXIII. The Glorification; Its Fifth Stage-The Second Period of Adult Age.

THE Glorification has now descended into the middle degree of the natural mind e making that degree Divine Truth. This is accompanied by an elevation of the interior seat of perception into the middle degree of the spiritual mind b, the actual or external seat of perception remaining still in the limbus as it does throughout the whole of His life in the world. The ground of this conscious human perception in the limbus was necessarily internal. So far as the human was glorified there was implanted in each degree a Divine Human cause for this external perception, which cause was interior according to its degree. From the Essential Divine He had a full consciousness of all that was transpiring in all the degrees of the Human.

Redemption progresses concurrently with Glorification and by the same means. The world of spirits is fast being cleared of the evil and the false. Its true order is being rapidly restored. Men on earth are again becoming receptive of light and life from the heavens above.

The heavens, so long infested, are regaining their former peace and tranquillity. They are soon to enjoy a state far superior to any ever known before, because by the Assumption and Glorification of the Human "The light of the moon" is "to become as the light of the sun and the light of the sun as the light of seven days." (Isaiah xxx, 26.) Even at this stage they are beginning to feel a perception of Divine Life and Light and hence of felicity hitherto unenjoyed.
