Where is the Spirit World?

(barb here)

from Teachings of Harold B. Lee. pg 58

"Where is the spirit world? Is it away up in the heavens? That isn't what the scriptures and our brethren explain. They have told us the spirit world is right here round about us, and the only spirits who can live here are those who are assigned to fill their missions here on earth.

This is the spirit world. And if our eyes could be opened we could see those who have departed from us...a father, mother, brother , sister, child (spouse). We could see them, and sometimes when our physical senses are asleep, sometimes our spiritual self...(our spiritual ears, and eyes)...sometimes they will be very keen and awake, and a departed one may come while we are lying asleep and come into our consciousness. We will feel an impression. We'll wake up.

Where does it come from? It comes from the spirits of those whom we are sealed to!"

I thought this went along with your feeling that Jordan is very near and very much aware of you and his children! You're gonna make it, Shelley. He's cheering you on.

  1. I love this quote. It is so comforting to know that the spirit world is here. I thought I read somewhere that we don't know how many spirits are there helping us everyday cheering us on, encouraging to keep on going. Like the handcart pioneers who had angelic help pulling the carts when they were to tired to go on. We can do this. we can do hard things we have lots of support.
