Excerpt: ... feet, by "feet" is signified the good of natural love from spiritual love, which is the good of faith; because that good rules and makes that heaven. From all this it is clear why "paps " signify spiritual love, and the "breast" its good. (But these things may be better understood from what is shown in the work on Heaven and Hell, especially in the following chapters: On the Three Heavens, n. 29-39; That the Divine of the Lord in the Heavens is Love to Him and Charity towards the Neighbor, n. 13-19; That the Whole Heaven represents one Man, n. 59-67; That there is a Correspondence of Heaven with all things of Man, n. 87-180; and in the Arcana Catlestia, n. 4938, 4939, 10087.

(That" white album" and " white candiduni " mean what is pure, see A.C., n. 3301, 3993, 4007, 5319.) "Head," in reference to the Lord, means the Divine in firsts, because the head is the highest...
