181. Up to now the person who has been awakened in this way by celestial angels is in a dim kind of life. When the time comes for him to be handed over to spiritual angels, there is an interval between the arrival of the spiritual angels and the departure of the celestial. I have also been shown how the spiritual angels work so that a person may gain the benefit of light. For the continuation of this subject see the preliminary section to the next chapter.
