DWQA QuestionsCategory: Divinely Inspired MessengersA practitioner asks: “Medieval Italian poet Dante Alighieri (1265 – 1321) is best known for his masterpiece “The Divine Comedy,” which describes a journey through Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise; in the journey, he is first guided by the Roman poet Virgil and then by Beatrice, his true love. This work is now regarded as a foundation of Western art and literature. How accurate is this map of the afterlife? Does it reflect the destiny of certain souls?” What can Creator tell us?

In a general way, it captures the array of possibilities encountered when one eventually transitions from an incarnation as a living physical being and emerges in spirit form with death of the body. We have talked at length, through your channel, about the fact that you are all soul-based extensions of our consciousness and enter life, as you experience it, coming from the heavenly realm, and the plan is for you to return there when it is no longer feasible to keep going in physical form. After all, the body is quite fragile and has a limited lifespan, and that is understood. The point of the exercise is learning and growth while doing useful work to advance the cause of the divine in countering the rise of evil within the physical plane affecting your entire galaxy. You were created to solve this problem. Part of the evil is that it corrupts not only the physical but even those beings in spirit form, particularly what we term "the spirit meddlers," "the fallen angelics," so-called "demons" in the Scriptures, because of their corruption and negativity. But darkness can envelop a human spirit that detaches from the physical body on its demise; if too low a vibration, that spirit may be unable to cooperate with light callers, who come to escort them to the heavens, and the spirit becomes earthbound, essentially lost in limbo. We have explained a number of times that the idea of "Hell" is more a description of what is also called "Purgatory," an in-between place of suffering that resides between the Earth of the living humans and the heavenly realm. It is the playground of the spirit meddlers and many human spirits become lost souls on their way back to the light and fail to transition fully—that can result in tremendous suffering. This has been seen intuitively through the ages, that things are complicated, and spirit phenomena are frequently witnessed which are of a negative nature. And what this great work of literature was embracing was a quite intuitive perception of the importance of the matter and getting in touch with the dynamics involved. So this great author was influenced by prior teachings, cultural lore, and his own intuitive perceptions while being assisted as well by the divine realm to help guide his understanding through inspiration. That is the true reason this work has been embraced so, and has had such a large influence culturally, because it rings true, and that, as well, is because it is largely true in describing the basic paradigm of human existence and transformation.
