Symbols - What does heaven look like

Lamb

 

A Dictionary of Symbols – J E Cirlot
The origins of the symbolism of the lamb are to be found in the Book of Enoch.  It signifies purity, innocence, meekness as well as unwarranted sacrifice.  In allegories, it lies at the root of representations of either pure thought or a just man.

There is also another symbolism applied to the lamb when used in the context of the spiritual path.  In the system that shows all the various synonyms of the Conscious and Subconscious, the Conscious [masculine] self is often shown as a Lion and the Subconscious [feminine] self is shown as a Lamb, in effect the masculine and the feminine must be at peace together within yourself and in balance in order to progress along the path.
