Sophia and Augustus de Morgan – From Matter to Spirit
Laying in the Red Sea.
When we enter into the doctrine of correspondence into which spirit-language falls when it comes through a mortal brain, we shall see how significant is this apparently absurd idea.
We shall find that Egypt typifies, both in Scripture and in all spiritual communication, the natural state, out of which every soul must be led before it comes into Canaan, the higher or truly spiritual degree. These poor spirits are supposed, in their hankering after the flesh-pots of Egypt or their desire to return to the natural state, to have passed over the boundary between the two conditions, and thus the expression “laying them in the Red Sea” is only a correspondential way of expressing their being sent back into the state proper for them.
