Love & Light, by Clayten Tylor

Love & Light, by Clayten Tylor- Back Cover Book

This book examines Emanuel Swedenborg's spiritual experiences of Heaven and Hell from an esoteric perspective as a feeling, the language of angels and spirits. To perceive this spiritual feeling, begins the regeneration process that develops an inner perception of celestial love, as spiritual light.

By examining celestial love as a feeling, in conjunction with spiritual light as a knowing, we can begin to conceive of angelic forces and understand their affects on us. When we can perceive love and light as a feeling as it expresses through our physical senses, we can start to affect our own psycho-spiritual development to evolve from a sensual to a spiritual feeling of conjugial love.

As we examine love and light as a spiritual feeling through heaven and hell, we too begin to experience a deeper spiritual awareness, which can initiate a personal communication with the Divine, as a Conjugial Love experience.

With creative self-expression as our goal, we can take regeneration into our own hands to speed-up our own evolution, while we transmute the forces that block the spiritual feeling of the Brotherhood of Mankind, and thereby, together, manifest the feeling of Heaven on Earth.


Emanuel Swedenborg first came to me in a dream and wanted me to write a book. He said that he had been trying to communicate with absolutely anyone, but no one could hear him. He had been waiting for me to become familiar enough with his writings so that I could write about my spiritual experiences.

During that time, Swedenborg kept saying that due to the “opposing factions” most people had become less interested in true spiritual experiences. Therefore, he wanted me to self-publish – as he did with his own writings. He said, it was because the book would probably never sell, or ever be accepted as a realizable truth within my lifetime. But at least it would be in print on earth as an idea, if only ever as a spiritual fantasy.

I did not think that I could write the kind of book that I thought Swedenborg wanted, because I did not know enough about religion. However, he told me to just start by writing about my own personal spiritual experiences, and he would then direct me to the most appropriate quotation.

I had already been preparing for about twenty years to write a book about my spiritual experiences. I had amassed hundreds of pages of notes about my dreams and visions, and I began to sort them into chapters. Furthermore, I would start writing by describing a dream or other experience, and then be dumbfounded when I would open one of Swedenborg's books to find the perfect quote.

While writing, I would first ask myself a question, and then a word or a quotation from one of his books would jump off the page. Sometimes I would just look at a specific word, and immediately that word would be spoken out loud on the radio. I would gasp at the coincidence, which continued day after day for several years.

In my experience, w riting or talking about spiritual subjects can be a very alienating topic in our society. W e have lost our desire , to communicat e with th e spiritual realm, and therefore, our ability. Thus, a materialistic person, who might not yet be able to perceive these higher love influences, scoffs at anyone who talks about these things.

Swedenborg tried to explain to me at the very beginning that there were opposing factions, and that each side had a different understanding of spiritual things. Yet, neither side had actually experienced anything that might be considered spiritual, or even thought that they might need to develop their abilities in order to communicate with angels or spirits – or even him. Eventually, what I think that he meant by the opposing factions was actually an inner battle between heaven and hell.

Although, all of Swedenborg's writings are about spiritual experiences that he personally witnessed, he said in a dream that no one in the church were actually believers, just readers of the Word, as they could not actually hear him. (Funny, I bet all spirits have this issue with humans, not being able to perceive them).

Spiritual experiences cannot be confirmed with any real credibility. Therefore, Swedenborg's writings offer me a means to verify spiritual truths without having to prove them to the scientific community. I understand now that the opposing factions are also between science and religion, of which Swedenborg's writings, as well as his own life seem to straddle both of these two opposing viewpoints: the first half of his life spent in science, and the latter part of his life writing about spirituality.

Personally, because of my interest in spiritual development using esoteric Astrology and Numerology as guides, I am well aware of the skepticism of people who have never been exposed to this line of thought before. Especially, regarding the idea that spiritual awareness, as foresight and insight, is something that can be learned, particularly after our discovery of the feeling of conjugial love.

Intuition is perhaps the closest acceptable term that can be used to define this kind of spiritual awareness, which flows in directly from within. To me, self-improvement is the spiritual development of an intuitive awareness of this guiding spiritual feeling of good as an inner state of peace and silence.

This book does not require that you have any previous spiritual enlightenment experiences in order to perceive past the appetites and pleasures into the more exalted spiritual affections of conjugial love. When the rational mind opens to the spiritual affections, the whole personality is changed automatically.

To not confuse the word affection, with the word emotion, I have chosen to use the word feeling. I use it to indicate when the rational mind is in a peaceful spiritual state of knowing. In this sense, it should be called as esoteric feeling, because it exists even without knowing it does.

I do hope that my i nterpretations of Swedenborg's quotations, and the personal experiences that I use as examples to describe the feeling of conjugial love will offer you some insight to bring about your own enlightenment experience . I n th is way it will convince you, and through you benefit others, which will eventually re ve a l the perception of the Divine as the spiritual feeling o f mutual love – and thereby bring about a global conjugial love experience for absolutely everybody .

Ten Practices

The common mother, is a term used to describe the effect of the prolific principle. It states that everything in the spiritual and natural worlds is insertable. It means that everything is implanted by influx, in order to make possible inherent life.

The insertable aspect, is the common father or masculine principle of multiplication. It gives circulation to everything. The common mother is the receptive feminine principle of fructification. It responds to the active force, by exhaling a subtle penetrating spiritual essence.

The spiritual perception of the common mother, is obtained at the end of the regeneration process. It happens after the ego has been transformed through regeneration from selfish to selfless. The common mother is then called the spiritual “Earth” because we perceive her in our body of flesh and blood, as love. When that love emits light, it is then called the spiritual “Church,” because we perceive love as the underlying essence of all physical form.

The soul is from the father, and the common mother is the feeling of the Soul's body. She is called the spiritual earth, when we first perceive Her, but the spiritual church when we share Her love. She is the principle of affection , on the path of return to the feeling of Divine love.

The common mother, has been ignored and mistaken, or perhaps just unrecognized until these words have been linked. She is the spiritual sense of the Word. She is the affection of good, flowing into the affection of truth on her return path through the physical earth into the spiritual feeling of love, and reuniting us One, in an affection of conjugial love.

To that end, this book contains ten exercises , or ten spiritual practices to help perceive the spiritual influx of the common mother. Our ego has been created from a possessive love; and the common mother is just below that separate sense of self. The state of separateness is why the body require s a full night's sleep to restore to a state of wholeness. Doing these exercises , is a reprieve from the exhausting pull of the ego , and over time the pull becomes less. Eventually, we are able to restore ourselves to a state of peace , by a momentary attunement . The ultimate attunement is to the affection of conjugial love , and it transforms our ego into being more than just human . When we learn to become silent, the effortless feeling of the eternal moment breaks through as an influx of conjugial love .

I cannot guarantee that you will experience the very highest heavenly state termed, conjugial love. But the one thing I can promise you is that once a personal communication begins through your dream s, you will start to feel your true self , as the affection of love . T hen , you will always be guided by the intuitive spiritual feeling of the common mother.

Our goal is to experience the common mother , first as the spiritual earth, and then as a spiritual church, and finally, uniting in a conjugial love experience with the Divine .
