10106. And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram. That this signifies the appropriation of spiritual good with those who are in internals from the Lord, is evident from the signification of "eating," as being appropriation (see n. 3168, 3513, 3596, 4745); from the representation of Aaron and his sons, as being the Lord as to Divine good and Divine truth (n. 9806, 9807, 10068), here in the heavens, because the subject treated of is the filling of the hand, by which is signified their capability of communication and reception there; and from the signification of "the flesh of the ram," as being the good of the internal man, or good in the internals. (That "flesh" signifies good, see n. 3813, 7850, 9127; and a "ram," the good of innocence and charity in the internal man, n. 9991, 10042.) It is said "the Lord as to Divine good and Divine truth in the heavens, and its capability of communication and reception there," because the Lord is above the heavens, for He is the Sun of heaven and also actually appears as a Sun to those who are in heaven. Moreover, all the light of the heavens is from this source, and through this light and heat He is present in the heavens, and so present as if He were wholly there, for He fills the heavens and makes them. In its essence the light proceeding from Him as a Sun is Divine truth, and from this come the wisdom and intelligence of the angels; and the heat proceeding from Him as a Sun is the Divine good of His Divine love there. The communication and reception of this Divine good and Divine truth in the heavens is what is signified by the "filling of the hand." (That the Lord is the Sun of heaven, and that from this are the light and heat in the heavens, from which the angels have their life, that is, wisdom and love, see n. 3636, 3643, 4321, 5097, 7078, 7083, 7171, 7173, 7270, 8644, 8812.)
