Some people have strange ideas about the state in which human beings find themselves in heaven. They believe that they take nothing but their head with them, because their liver, stomach, intestines – and above all their genitals – are not very noble organs.

Well, they are mistaken: human beings enter paradise whole and intact, and if you only knew in what splendour, beauty and purity! Just as God created them in the beginning. They have lungs, a brain, ears and eyes, but in another form, or rather of a different quintessence, for forms no longer exist in the world above, only currents, lights, and forces.

Everything is organized and functions within them as though they had a stomach, arms and legs. Nothing is missing, it is all there, but transformed into faculties, virtues and qualities.

For the organs of our physical body are, in fact, the representation or reflection of heavenly virtues and qualities.

If you could see human beings with these lights and colours endlessly streaming from them, you would never tire of contemplating them.
