Everybody seems to have the idea that Lucifer was an angel who rebelled in heaven, then was cast down and became Satan. But where did this story come from? And what does it really mean for us in our lives today? In this episode, we use Swedenborg’s spiritual experiences to interrogate this popular notion of Lucifer, and learn that “fallen angels” really represent the evil states of heart and mind to which we can fall prey. After examining some of the symbolism that lies within the stories of Lucifer and Satan, we discuss antidotes to these types of forces. We even provide a brief guided meditation to help you better understand the forces of truth and goodness that are at play in the universe within.
