Leibniz - On the Higher spirit, soul and body
Type of Spiritual Experience
god = angel in this context
A description of the experience
In man there is spirit, soul and body: or mind, reason, flesh or sense. Mind considers higher matters, reason things in the middle, and sense inferior matters.
Three worlds, the divine, the Angelic , the sensible.
The superior world contains the inferior. The inferior is the shadow of the superior. An angel has every inferior world in himself in a spiritual manner so that he can display it if he wishes.
God contains all in one and everything tends toward this one; this is the highest good of all things.
Good is internal and external. The first is true, the second falsely called good. Internal good flows from us; external good, as is generally accepted, can be called fortune, and it is not in our power. [Grua]
