#WednesdayWisdom #12Steps

12steps-aa-swedenborg“(Angels) picture wisdom as a magnificent and finely decorated palace. One climbs up to enter this palace by twelve steps. One can only arrive at the first step by means of the Lord’s power through joining with Him…As a person climbs these steps, he perceives that no one is wise from himself but from the Lord…The twelve steps into the palace of wisdom signify love in union with faith and faith in union with love.”                                  Emanuel Swedenborg, Divine Providence, Paragraph 36
