introduced, which is earth; but to the part which was given to Adam from the angelic world, which he corrupted and poisoned with the earthly crav- ing, for in the craving earthly, coarse, animal flesh was produced. 11. This part has the right human essence, and in this part God became man. And this same part has the ground of the angelic world, for it takes its origin from the angelic world. 12. But if most frequently godless parents are immersed wholly in the wrath of God, and so beget children in the wrath ; then is their seed shut up in death, and has in it nothing of the right human essence, which is moving, save only what the constellation in the spirit majoris mundi has in itself. There certainly the divine power has some movement; but the wrath's power exists as opposite, and is heavy. Nevertheless, there is no impossibility; for the incarnation of God, his becoming man, is presented to all souls in the life's light. 13. But baptism contains something else. God's essence (as the water of eternal life born of God's gentleness) must move the right human essence (with Adam shut up in death), and yield itself up there as a new life or a living essence. God's water must baptize; the Holy Spirit must be the operant. 14. But I say, according to my knowledge, that the water of eternal life, upon which the Holy Spirit broods, will hardly yield itself up to the poison of wrath and death, where there is not an essence of desire [toward God].
