The 7 mansion worlds circling the finaliter world which in its turn circles the planet Jerusem, headquarters of our local system

The phrase “to be in seventh heaven” is an allusion to these seven real worlds which circle the finaliter world which in its turn circles the planet Jerusem. This is the “heaven” where, at some stage, many go to following “death”, which is actually a transition to a place where the learning process can continue. Whether you are taken to mansion world 1 or 7 depends on your stage of consciousness at the moment of transition. The journey may start on world 1 and continue through to world 7, or you may arrive on world 5 due to the higher level of consciousness you have attained, and progress likewise to world 7. Jerusem is a “headquarters world” as described below;
“Jerusem, the headquarters of your local system of Satania, has its seven worlds of transition culture, each of which is encircled by seven satellites, among which are the seven mansion worlds of morontia detention, man's first postmortal residence. As the term heaven has been used on Urantia, it has sometimes meant these seven mansion worlds, the first mansion world being denominated the first heaven, and so on to the seventh.” (Paper 15, The Seven Superuniverses, The Urantia Book)
“The headquarters worlds of the seven superuniverses partake of the nature and grandeur of Paradise, their central pattern of perfection. In reality, all headquarters worlds are paradisiacal. They are indeed heavenly abodes, and they increase in material size, morontia beauty, and spirit glory from Jerusem to the central Isle. And all the satellites of these headquarters worlds are also architectural spheres” (Paper 15, The Seven Superuniverses, The Urantia Book)
