Symbols - What does heaven look like

Lotus

See the Spiritual Path and also the Hourglass and the Spiritual path.

The symbolic attainment of the ascending path up the soul is often seen in visions and also symbolically represented in texts as a lotus. 

A lotus is an ideal symbol. 

It has its roots in the ‘Earth, its leaves float on the Water layer , its stem then rises up through the Air and its flower opens up like a crown chakra as the Higher Spirit accepts spiritual nourishment from the Sun [the Creator] – see Trinity symbolism.  It is also roughly speaking in the shape of a cross, the sign of the ascent of man and  the cardinal directions in the Egg.

The Buddha sits on a lotus – he has gone beyond his own soul cone and is in the Creator/Created section having united with his Higher Spirit.
