The Natural World, or Nature.
How perverse the world is, in that at the present time it attributes so much to nature, and nothing to the Lord, 3483.
Neither from the light of nature, nor from natural theology is anything known respecting God and heaven; but all things are known from revelation: illustrated, 8944.
In universal nature there are representatives of the Lord's kingdom; an example, 2758.
Universal nature is a theatre representative of the Lord's kingdom, and this is a theatre representative of the Lord, 3483.

Concerning the obedience of the natural; it then exists when it looks to heaven, not to the world, 5368.
Concerning the subjugation of the natural, 6567. See REGENERATION.
The natural is a plane in which influx terminates, therefore the old must be subjugated, and the new is given, when the man is regenerated, which is the spiritual-natural, 5651:2.
Concerning the regeneration of the natural man, 8742-8747.
The quality of the natural man not regenerated, and the quality of him regenerated, 8744, 8745.

Those things which are in the natural are relatively obscure, 6686.
The whole natural is in falsity and evil in its outermost things, and there are no truths there, 7645.

The natural is interior and exterior; and the interior communicates with the rational, and the exterior with the world, 5118, 5126.
What the distinction of the natural and rational man is, 3020.
The rational is distinct from the natural, so much so that the rational can exist apart from the natural life, but not the natural without the rational life, 3498.
To man, while he lives in the body, it appears as if the rational lived in the natural; and the rational does not appear distinct from the natural, 3498:2.
The natural is as a body, the end in the rational is as a soul, and the things which are in the natural are relatively as the body of their soul, 3570:3.

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 from rational good as a father, and from rational truth 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 rational receives truths and goods sooner than the natural, 4612:2.
Several reasons why the natural is regenerated later, and with more difficulty, than the rational, 3321:3.
The rational is regenerated sooner than the natural; why, 3493.
Unless the natural is regenerated, the rational cannot produce anything of truth and good, 4588.
The natural must be regenerated before it can he conjoined to the rational; the reason, 4612:4.

From the inmost good of the rational the goods and truths in the natural come forth, 3576.
Concerning this see TRUTH and REGENERATION.

The rational appears to itself to see nothing, unless the natural corresponds, 3493:2, 3620.
In the natural there are general things, in the rational their particulars; and the natural is formed from the particulars of the rational, 3513.
The rational man thinks in the natural; concerning which, 3679:2. See THOUGHT.
The rational lives in the natural: illustrated, 4618:3.
The natural is beneath the rational; and if they harmonise, the natural is nothing but the formation of those things which are in the rational as being common, 4667:2.

The natural does not look forward to, and do anything from itself (although it so appears), but from the interior, 5286.

Natural and Spiritual Man.
Concerning the internal and external man, or the natural and spiritual man, 9701-9709.
What the spiritual and the natural man are, or what is the same, the internal and the external: the spiritual man is wise from the light of heaven, and the natural from the light of the world, 3167.
By the fall they were separated, and the natural man exalts himself above the spiritual; wherefore there must be regeneration, 3167.
Whence it is that the internal man is called spiritual, and the external, natural, 9383.
The internal lives in the natural man, but it clothes itself with those things by means of which it can accomplish the effect in a lower sphere, 6275, 6284;
The natural is opposed to the spiritual: illustrated, 3913:3, 3928.
Nothing appears to the natural man that is in the spiritual, unless there is a correspondence and medium; and conversely all things which are in the natural appear to the spiritual, 5427, 5428:2, 5477.
The natural is in the light of the world; the spiritual, in the light of heaven; the former is the external of the Church, the latter is the internal, 5965.
The natural must necessarily be regenerated that influx may be through the internal, otherwise the internal is closed, 6299:3.
The natural man separated from the internal cannot endure a spiritual sphere, 9109.

The life of the natural, although in good, does not give salvation, but the life of faith, which is spiritual life: illustrated, 8772.

There are with everyone an internal, a rational, and a natural, 2181.
In man there are three things,-the corporeal, the natural, and the rational; and they communicate, 4038.
The celestial, spiritual, and natural follow each other in order; concerning which, 9992, 10005;
but the good of love, of charity, and of faith follow in their own order, 4938, 4939, 9992, 10005, 10017:2, 10266.
The celestial, spiritual, and natural succeed each other, 8802.
Every natural is from a spiritual, thence from a celestial, thus from the Lord, 775.
The natural is the ultimate of order, 4240.
Celestial things are the head, spiritual things the body, and natural things the feet; and thus they succeed and flow m, 4938, 4939.
In the natural of the memory, as in their own ground, are implanted the cognitions of truth and good by means of life, 3762:2.
Natural good and truth are of a twofold origin-from hereditary nature and from doctrine; the former is good and truth, natural not spiritual; but the latter is good and truth natural-spiritual: illustrated, 4988:2, 4992.

The distinction between natural good and the good of the natural; the former is from parents, the latter from the Lord, 3518.

they have no conscience into which angels flow, 6208.

A life according to natural good does not save, but a life according to the precepts of faith and charity, 7197.
Spiritual truth agrees with natural truth in ultimates; and then there is not conjunction, but only affinity: illustrated, 5008, 5028.

The ancients reduced the neighbour into classes, and taught in what manner charity was to be exercised towards one and another, 6705.
With Christians the Lord is He from whom the neighbour is, thus is the good which is from Him, 6706, 6711.
The distinctions of neighbour are according to the quality of good, thus according to the Lord's presence, 6707, 6708.
Each is the neighbour according to the quality of his love, because according to the quality of good, 6709;
Every man is the neighbour, but in a different manner, 6818.
A society greater or less is more the neighbour, with the like difference, 6819, 6820.
One's country is the neighbour still more; why, 6819, 6821.
The Church is even still more the neighbour, 6819, 6822.
The neighbour is loved if he is led to good, 6822.
The Lord's kingdom is yet more the neighbour, 6819, 6823.
The Lord is the neighbour above all, 6819, 6824.
How the case is with this: that everyone is a neighbour to himself, and should at first consider himself, 6933, 6938.
Everyone is a neighbour to himself, not in the first place, but in the last, 6933.
Everyone should provide for himself, that he might have the necessities of life, and be in a state to exercise charity, 6934.
If this be for sell in the first place, the end is evil, 6935;
illustrated by the fact that the body ought to be provided for, for the sake of the mind (that a healthy mind may be in a healthy body), and this ought to be imbued with wisdom, and thus be provided for, that it may serve the Lord, 6936;
illustrated also by a house, insomuch that the foundation ought to be the first, though habitation is the first and last end, and so the foundation is the means, 6937.
The case is similar with honours in the world, which are to be sought, not for the sake of self, but for the neighbour, 6938.
