Symbols - What does heaven look like

Path or road

Under the heading of Why are we here on the Home page of the website I have introduced the idea of the Great Work as being a plan devised by the Intelligences for Creation, destruction and evolution  of the Universe.

Within the Great work are tasks, which like all plans are linked together in an interdependent network.

When we are born we are given one or more of these tasks to achieve, sometimes with a shared responsibility to achieve them.
If I now use  a different diagram that represents the overall view from the person's point of view.  Each of the boxes are tasks in the plan, the arrows show logical dependency – the sequence during life.

Each colour may represent the person's involvement in different challenges, with perhaps some activities – the yellow ones - being unrelated to any challenge. This person's overall plan for life shows them involved in three different challenges represented by the blue, red and purple boxes.  This shows how very complex our life can become without us understanding why.  There is a subtle interweaving of the tasks carefully achieved over the lifetime.

This ‘personal plan’ is often ‘seen’, and also symbolically described in literature, as our path or road. 

Winding roads

The ‘Long and winding road’ is symbolically the ascent up our soul cone and thus the spiritual path

Colour of the roads

The colour of the path tends to be the colour of the rainbow level you are at.  Thus the colour symbolism used in the rainbow is used to convey the colour of the path and the level you are at.

Follow the Yellow Brick Road

Follow the Yellow Brick Road.

Forms and features

Paths can appear to be made of brick, sand, gold, or crystal   Paths may also appear as carpets – red carpets, green carpets, blue carpets, patterned carpets.  These are taking on the symbolism of the substance with which they have been made.
