The Sun in Heaven (Continued)

Since the Lord is the sun of heaven, and since everything that comes from him looks toward him, the Lord is the common center, the basis of all direction and orientation. So too everything beneath is in his presence and under his control, everything in the heavens and everything on earth.

This enables us to see in clearer light the things that have been presented in the earlier chapters about the Lord, namely that he is the God of heaven (Sections 2–6), that his divine nature makes heaven (Sections 7–12), that the divine nature of the Lord in heaven is love for him and thoughtfulness toward our neighbor (Sections 13–19), that there is a correspondence of everything in our world with heaven, and through heaven with the Lord (Sections 87–115),105 and that the sun of our world and its moon are correspondent entities (Section 105).

from Heaven and Hell, Sections 124, 125
