SPIDER LESSONS IN MY GARDEN

web-copy

I see a small spider approaching and I followed her to a tree. In that tree she starts to weave a web blocking the exit. The spider weaves her web so steadily that it fascinates me and soon I realize that the weaving itself is a meditation. With that weaving I imagine her as a creator weaving the whole universe and I also imagine her as a dream catcher weaving the net to manifest my deepest desires. When the spider is finished weaving, she sits in the middle of the web and she starts her teaching to me.

She ends her teachings by telling me that she weaves a new web every day. She tells me that she takes down the web when it is ruined and begins again everyday and she never has to think about it, she just spins her web with great care.

After giving her lessons to me, she takes down her web blocking the exit and leaves.
