1201. It is through the innermost heaven that the Lord imparts true marriage love, its beginning and origin being from the innermost heaven, and then passing through the center of the lower heavens. From there comes also parental love, because the heavenly beings of the innermost heaven love little children so much, much more than their parents or mothers do. Indeed, they are with little children, and take care of them. I was even told that they are in the mother's womb, caring for their nourishment. So they are in charge of pregnant wombs.
