In this, the third of three presentations, Sarah Walker takes us on a journey through the innermost sanctuary, the Holy of Holies, of Solomon’s Temple.
In the first presentation, we looked at the spiritual meaning of the area called the Inner Court. The second presentation dealt with the spiritual meaning of the area called the Holy Place. (See the links below this post to presentations dealing with the Inner Court (Part 1) and the Holy Place (Part 2)).
The Temple descriptions can be read in 1 Kings Chapter 5-8 and 2 Chronicles Chapter 3 and 4. Viewed as a whole, the temple presents an image of the structure of the human mind. Sarah ties the structures of the Temple back to the three-phase process of awakening to spiritual life as experienced by Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) and recorded in the work Heaven and Hell (see paragraphs 491-520).
