Our Entry into Eternal Life (Continued)

After our revived selves–our souls–have been restored to the light, so that we can look around us, the spiritual angels mentioned before (Section 182) perform every service for us that we can possibly desire in our new state. They teach us about the things that exist in the other life, but only so far as we can comprehend. To anyone who had been a believer and has an interest they also show the grand and amazing sights of heaven.

But if the revived person or soul is not the kind who wants to learn, he or she then wants to leave the angels’ company. The angels are quick to perceive this because in the next life all the ideas involved in our thinking are shared generally. When we are eager to part with the angels, they do not leave us but we disconnect from them. Angels love everyone and want nothing more that to be helpful to us, teach us, and take up up into heaven. That is their highest pleasure.
