Symbols - What does heaven look like

Grapes

There are two alternative symbolic associations for grapes but both have the same meaning, grapes are the source of spiritual input.

Grapes hanging down

You will not be able to understand this section unless you have read and understood the following

If you glance back at the picture I used to show the organisation in the Egg  – see Egg and levels you will that the Egg is a sort of tiered structure with numerous pieces of software – programs of the universe Functions  – at different vibrational levels, you can see that symbolically at least they look like a bunch of grapes – and indeed symbolically that is exactly how they have been represented.

There is some very good symbolism at work here, because grapes produce Wine.

Here we see the god who was called by the Greeks Dionysos and by the Romans Bacchus.  He has a bowl holding grapes,  the grapes are pointing down because he is a god [the cone is upended].  He is  also holding a Crystal glass, which has the shape of a Cup or chalice.  

Grapes pointing up

When the grapes point upwards they can also represent the pineal gland and shows you are in receipt of spiritual energy.

In a literal sense, wine helps lower the inhibitions and also aids in the increase of calcification of the pineal gland and hence in the likelihood of more sexual energy. 
But wine is associated with Dionysos and Dionysos is the god of wine.  He may also personify an actual person who brought wine and wine making to Greece.
So all the symbolism ties in, there is spiritual wine from gods like Dionysus when the bunch of grapes is pointing down and upturned grapes to receive that energy where they represent the pineal gland.
