Things gain a place in the natural according to the delights and pleasantnesses which they introduce, 3512.
Natural good or its delight first serves as a means of introducing truths in order, and this especially when a man is being regenerated: illustrated, 3518.
Good produces truth in the natural almost as life produces fibres in the body, 3579.
The cognitions of truth and good are implanted in the natural as in their own ground, by means of life, and those which are not by means of life are there as historical things, 3762:2.
Cognitions precede before a man can be regenerated, 3786:2;
similarly in general before the Church can be established, 3786:2.
Man is regenerated by this: that good is conjoined with truths in the natural, and afterwards the natural with the rational; the process is described, 4353:2.
Unless the natural is regenerated the rational produces nothing of truth and good, 4588.
The natural must be regenerated before it can be conjoined to the rational; the reason, 4612:4.
When the natural of man is being regenerated, all things are brought together in the scientifics there, 5373:3.
The natural must necessarily be regenerated that there may be influx through the internal from the Lord, or otherwise the internal would be closed, 6299:2.
When the natural is regenerated the whole man is regenerated, 7442:3.
The man is not regenerated unless the natural is also, 9043, 9046e, 9061:2.
The man is not regenerated until the whole man is regenerated, 8742-8747.
With the unregenerate the external man commands, and the internal serves; it is contrariwise with the regenerate, 8743.
The quality of the natural man when not regenerated, 8744.
The quality of the natural man when regenerated, 8745.
The natural man is regenerated by means of the internal; and how, 8746.
The regenerated man is an angel, and has the life of heaven, 8747.
Several reasons why the natural is regenerated later, and with more difficulty, than the rational, 3321:2.
With the spiritual man truths are prior, 3325:2, 3336. See TRUTH.
The natural is regenerated later, and with more difficulty, than the rational; the reasons, 3469.
The rational is regenerated before the natural; why, 3493.
The natural is regenerated at first by means of the influx from the rational into the truth, thus not into the good of the natural, 3509:2.
The natural is regenerated by means of the rational, and so far as the natural does not fight against the rational, it is regenerated, 3286.
The natural is regenerated by the good of.
the rational as a father, and by the truth of the rational as a mother, 3286, 3288.
The rational receives truths sooner than the natural, because the natural is to be regenerated by means of influx from the rational, 3321.
The good and truth of the natural is formed from the good and truth of the rational by means of influx, 3573, 3616;
but there are innumerable media which are treated of in the internal sense of the Word, 3573:2.
From the good of the rational goods and truths exist inmostly in the natural, 3576.
Good and Truth in relation to Regeneration.
All regeneration is by means of the truths of faith, 2046.
There must be truths of faith, that a man may be regenerated; and they must enter with genuine affection; then when truth is reproduced, the affection is reproduced, and conversely; and so man is withheld from evils by means of the angels: illustrated, 5893:2.
A man ought to be regenerated by means of the truths of faith; and how he ought to be amended: illustrated, 9088:2.
They who are in the affection of truth come into anxiety when they are deprived of truths; never the evil, 2689.
Truths not genuine are insinuated, 3470:3;
and then there is pain from combat, 3471.
Man is not regenerated by means of truth, but by means of the good of truth, 2697.
What truth having life from itself is, 3610.
Truths implanted in the life do not appear, 10029.
Truths seek life in scientifics, and good in truths, 6077.
That a man may be regenerated truth must be conjoined with scientifics, 6004:4, 6023, 6052.
Man is regenerated by means of the affection of truth; and one who is regenerated acts from the affection of good, 1904.
With the spiritual, good and truth are implanted in the affection of sciences, 2675.
When a man is regenerated, there is a change, and the truth becomes good, and ascends above external and scientific things, 6507.
What must be the quality of the truths that they may be made good, is described, 8725.
Truths and goods are they that serve for introducing genuine truths and good, when a man is being regenerated, which former are afterwards left, 3665:2, 3690:2, 3982, 3974:2, 4145:2.
Truths which form good are as fibres, but they are led and applied to the form from interior good, 3470:3.
A man is first led through truth to good; and before that he cannot know what good, or charity, is; and afterwards he is led by the Lord through good, 8516:2.
In each Kingdom, the Celestial and the Spiritual, good is implanted by means of truth, but in a different manner in the former Kingdom it is implanted in the voluntary part; in the latter, in the intellectual part; thus in each, men are regenerated differently; concerning which, 10124.
Man is led by means of truths to good; and truth becomes good when it belongs to the will, or love; how this is effected; the process: illustrated, 10367:3.
Good multiplies truths around every truth, and makes it like a little star; also by means of derivations successively, 5912.
Truths are first multiplied, and next conjoined to good, then in desolation, 5376:2.
Concerning regeneration by means of the conjunction of good with truth, and of truth with good, see TRUTH.
Goods and truths with a regenerated man form, as it were, a city, and this from the form of heaven, and influx therefrom, 3584.
When truth is deprived of life from self, it is then conjoined to good, and by means of good receives life itself, 3607.
When a conjunction of good with truth takes place with man, incongruous and opposing scientifics are rejected to the sides, 5871.
Good adopts truths and conjoins them to itself, 8516:2.
The conjunction of good and truth is effected in a state of peace, 8517.
They who are only in truths, and not at the same time in good, cannot be regenerated, 10367:5.
When a man is being regenerated, truth is apparently in the first place, and good in the second, thus in inverse order; but when he is regenerated, good is in the first place, and truth in the second, 3539:3, 3548, 3556, 3570, 3576:2, 3603:3, 3701, 3325, 3494, 4925, 4926, 4930, 5351:2, 10110e.
The quality of the state when truth is in the first place, and when good is, 3610:3.
When a man is regenerated, which comes to pass when good takes the first place, he then undergoes temptations, 4248.
Then another order is introduced among the truths and goods in the natural, 4250, 4251.
So long as truth is predominant, not good, the natural is not subjugated; but when good dominates it is; concerning which subjugation, and the indication when it is, 6567.
Truths and goods are spoken of when the state before regeneration is the subject; but goods and truths, when the state after regeneration is the subject, 9135.
There is a continual endeavour in good to restore a state, so that truth may be subordinate: illustrated, 3610:3.
Natural good is not spiritual good; the former is from parents, the latter from the Lord by means of regeneration, 3470:2.
How natural good is extirpated, and spiritual good is formed by means of truths through regeneration, 3470:3.
Man does not come into heaven until he is in a state to be led b the Lord through good, 8516:2, 8539:2, 8722e, 9832.
No one is regenerated unless he is endowed with charity, 989.
They who exercise charity from obedience are regenerated in the other life, 989e.
What spiritual good is; it is to will and to do good to another from no reason of self, but from the delight of affection; and no one can come to that state except by means of regeneration from the Lord; concerning which, 4538:4.
Man ought to do good, as it were, from the proprium, not let his hands hang down, but yet acknowledge that it is from the Lord, 1712:2.
He who is led by the Lord through good, lives according to Divine order; thus in the Lord, 8512.
With him who lives according to order, a passage is open from the Lord; with him who does not live according to order, the passage is closed; concerning which, 8513.
How the case is with regeneration; and the ground is in man's intellectual part, 875:3.
The ground is prepared by means of temptations, 848.
The vessels recipient of truth are softened by means of temptations, so that they may receive good, 3318:2.
When a change takes place, or when good is to be in the first place, while a man is being regenerated, then there is temptation, 5773.
When a man is in truths he is in combat; when he is in good he has rest; and, in the supreme sense, when the Lord was in combats, He was Divine Truth, and afterwards, when He became Divine Good, He had rest, which is the Sabbath, 10360:3.
Man is regenerated by means of temptations, and without being regenerated he cannot be saved, 5280:2.
Without temptation a man cannot be regenerated, and he must undergo many, 8403:2.
Evil spirits dare not assault the regenerated, for they immediately perceive, from the sphere, a response and resistance, 1695:2.
Evils and Falsities in relation to Regeneration.
Evils and falsities remain with man when he is being regenerated, and they are tempered, 8682.
All evils remain, even when a man is regenerated: illustrated, 4564:2.
Man is nothing but evil and falsity, from hereditary descent; wherefore he must be regenerated, 3701:2.
Falsities form a connection, and make the life with man; and these ought to be extirpated, and truths implanted by the Lord, which also will form a connection; and for this a long time is required: illustrated, 9256:3.
Evils and falsities are removed slowly, while a man is being regenerated; otherwise falsities creep in and fill up: illustrated, 9334:2, 9335:2;
illustrated further, 9336:2.
Affection always adjoins itself to subjects which are brought into the memory, and they are reproduced together; and the affection of good is adjoined to truths by the Lord, with man, in his natural; and by means of the affection of good, truths are reproduced, and so evils and falsities are removed, 3336:2.
All purification from evils and falsities takes place by means of the truths of faith, also all regeneration: references, 9959:3.
Then first there is life when the life of the love of self and the world is extinguished, 3610:2.
Man ought from himself to compel himself to think truth and to do good, 1937, 1947.
No one can be regenerated except in freedom, see FREEDOM.
Except in freedom, there is no regeneration, 3145, 3146.
With man conjunction is reciprocal: namely, of the Lord with man, and of man with the Lord, 2004:2.
The regeneration of man is an image of the Lord's glorification; a comparison, 3043:3, 3138e, 3212:2, 3296, 3490, 4402, 5688e.
Something concerning the regeneration of man, 653.

Regeneration is presented, as in an image, in the formation of man in the womb; concerning which subject, 3570:4.
The regeneration of man is represented especially in trees; concerning which, 5115, 5116.
Regeneration by means of remains; the process, 5342:3.
Regeneration has for its end that charity may reign universally with him, 8856;
even love to the Lord, 8857;
and man is such as his universally reigning and governing love is, 8558.
Concerning the initiament of the new will from infancy; thus concerning the reception of good and truth from thence; and concerning the following state: illustrated, 9296:2, 9297.
Regeneration is effected by means of Divine truths from the Word, successively interior; concerning which, 10028.
Everyone is regenerated according to his capability and understanding, 2967:2, 2975.
All things are elevated and arranged with man according to his ends; concerning which, 4104:4.
Because cognitions respecting regeneration, good, and truth are wanting to-day, therefore what is said concerning them cannot be easily comprehended, 4136:2.
To-day man knows very little respecting regeneration, because he believes there is absolute remission of sins and justification, when yet there are innumerable arcana of regeneration, and they persist through the whole of man's life, yea, into eternity, 5398.
The Lord desires to have the whole man, and not that the man be his own as to a part, 6138:2.

Hereditary evils are from parents and grandparents in a long series backward, 8550.
Man continually superadds evils from himself, 8551;
because these are contrary to spiritual life the man must be altogether created anew, 8552;
and because the very order of life must be inverted, 8553.

Remains with the Lord were Divine, and His, by means of which He united the Human Essence to the Divine, 1906:4.
What remains are; they are goods and truths stored up by the Lord, in the interior man, 2284.

The ancient pagans knew representatives; an example, 7729:8.
The knowledge of representatives has altogether perished: illustrated by the rituals respecting the coronations of kings, 4581:3.
The Principles of Representation.
The law of representation is that it is not reflected on that which represents, but on that which is represented, 1361.
Representations do not regard the person, but the subject, 665, 1097:3.
Representatives had regard to holy things, and not to persons: references cited, 9229:9.
It matters not what the quality of the person who represents is, as the quality of a king or priests, 3670.
See KING and PRIEST.
Evil kings and evil priests can also represent the Lord, 4281:3.
Internal things are they that are represented, and external things are they that represent: illustrated, 4292:3;
and therefrom Jacob was called Israel, 4292:3.
Representations are continued in him who follows, after the death of the former representative, 6302.
The Jews could represent holy things better than other people, because they worshipped the external as Divine, 8588:5.
Representatives passed from them to the simple angelic spirits who relate to the cuticle, and from these to interior angels, 8588:6.
Festivals and sabbaths were to be celebrated, that the Jews might be in a fully representative state, 7891;
