Luke 3:22 and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my one dear Son; b in you I take great delight.” 

The dove is an international symbol of peace.  Jesus said He came to give us peace, but not the peace of the world   He came to give us God’s peace.  We cannot experience this peace, the dove cannot come on us, if we are not a lamb.  To receive the Holy Spirit we must humble ourselves before God.  We must admit we are sinners and through His Son, Jesus, ask for forgiveness and accept the cleansing of the blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus.  Jesus humbled Himself by taking on the form of a man and substituting Himself on the cross for our sins  He didn not have to do this but chose to out of love for the Father and love and cmpassion for us.  The question is are we willing to give up our false sence of independance and our pride and walk humbly with our God?
