Symbols - What does heaven look like

Reed

The spinal cord– symbolically the source of the kundalini experience – thus if one ‘blows’ through the reed then one is symbolically invoking a kundalini experience because breath is spirit.

"The Long Cry of the Reeds at Even"  by Alexander Mann

 

Tito Vignoli – On Dreams, Illusions, Hallucinations, Delirium and Madness

Of all natural objects, different kinds of reeds and the hollow stalks of plants are, owing to their hollow and cylindrical form, best adapted for the imitation of a bird’s beak and the sonorous transmission of breath.  In many languages the word for a flute is the same as that for a reed.  In Sanscrit, vanca and venu mean a flute and bamboo; in Persian na and nay mean a flute and reed; in Greek and in Latin there is the same double meaning and many more examples might be found.
