The issues of allegory and the will...

What is the mode of the soul's representation in paradise?
Why is allegory necessary?
What kind of ideas are legitimate today?
What do I care who governs me as long as they don't make me sin?

The seven earths would be purgatory in Dante's story.

Paradise takes a while to process...

One must step outside from time to time from the screens and technology to see that...

You're right on that one!

 

The ideas presented in the divine comedy help one to take inner snapshots of the self using light, shadow, and color. Sometimes, it's difficult to see these images. As the disection of layers begin, you'll find things hidden between them. Reaching into the dark spaces and bringing light to the subject from different angles...

 

Focus too much on the light and it's possible you'll blind yourself!

 

Search only in the dark and things begin to grope that you cannot see.

 

The harsh consonant value of nature is a shell that holds within a soft belly of vowels.

Paradise is the hardest part in the Divine Comedy to understand. This thread may help to bring a little more sensibility to the process:

 

 

How to Enter Heaven/paradise/nirva​na/kingdom of God/the Light/source?

Perhaps it's because people in general love the grandeurs and delights of infernal desire. Addictions, fantasies, all out beliefs in things that cannot possibly be true. Others, are climbing the mountain in purgatory. Continuing that purging journey on their rise to paradise.

What is this unseen force that TPTB believe in? I believe it is a malignant tumor bent on destroying everything God made. The problem is 'they' believe in their cause. To them it is progress..........
 
 
This paradise that we have been fooled into constructing is actually a hell on earth. Only a privileged few get to wander in this garden of delights! Some people see it for what it is and are attempting to purge themselves of the poisons handed down from above.

This paradise behind the earthly garden goes beyond the supernatural. Dante's reflections of the inner being are interesting to think about.
