Symbols - What does heaven look like

Sails

There is a link between the boat as a form of spiritual transport and the idea of a sail boat. 

In all visions one tends to see sail boats depicted and not motor boats. 

A sail is driven by wind and in symbolic terms, the wind is the ‘breath of life’, or another symbolic term for spirit output and  spirit input – the input/output energy that circulates in the spiritual world.

Thus to have the wind in your sails means you have help from the spiritual world, you are being blown along by the input you are getting from spiritual experiences, whether this happens to be invisible input or visible input – see Types of Spiritual experience.

Below, painting by myself – here I am watching other people sail on by as I am trapped behind the cage.
