ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION. Matt. xxiv. 15, signifies the falsification and deprivation of all truth, 80.
ABSENCE in the spiritual world, its cause, 171.
ACTION.—In all conjunction by love there must be action, reception, and reaction, 293. From the will, which in itself is spiritual, actions flow, 220.
ACTIVITY is one of the moral virtues which respect life, and enter into it, 164. The activity of love makes a sense of delight, 461. The influx of Love and wisdom from the Lord is the essential activity from which comes all delight, 461. From conjugial love, as from a fountain, issue the activities and alacrities of life, 249.
ACTORS.—In heaven, out of the cities, are exhibited stage entertainments, wherein the actors represent the various virtues and graces of moral life, 17, 79.
ACTUALLY, 66, 98, 178, &c.
Obs.—This expression is used to distinguish Actualiter from Realiter, of which the author also makes use; thus between actually and really, there is the same distinction as between actual taken in a philosophical sense, and real.
ACUTION.—The spiritual purification of conjugial love may be compared with the purification of natural spirits effected by chemists, and called acution, 145.
