Symbols - What does heaven look like
Helmet [of invisibility]
As you will see in the overview description of ‘How to get to heaven’ , if we use the approach that requires gradual subjection and suppression of functions in order to subjugate the Will and hence the personality, there is the need to minimise any threats, opportunities, obligations and desires.
Where do all these originate? Well some of them come via the 5 senses and hence the 5 sensory organs - the nose, ears, eyes, mouth and taste buds as well as the sense of touch. If we are symbolically beheaded, the sense of touch no longer bothers us because we no longer have a body, but what do we do about the rest of the senses. The answer is that we find a way of blocking out all these threats and opportunities and the perfect symbolic object to do that is the Helmet.
The knight’s helmet is very symbolic. You have the fact that the knight is the hero, and on most helmets of this time, a huge plume also issued from the top of the helmet – the crown chakra opened in a symbolic reference to an Ecstatic experience.
‘See no evil, hear no evil, smell no evil, and taste no evil ’.
