Symbols - What does heaven look like
A moth is a fully enlightened person, one who is free of the Earth and is able to symbolically ‘fly’ in the Air [or higher]. It shares some symbolism with birds. In contrast with a butterfly, the Moth is 'of the night' it is a black shaman.
One of the more intriguing aspects about a moth, both actually and symbolically, is that despite it being 'black', it is attracted by the Light.
