Today’s Note to Self ~Remember today, the web that we weave as we journey through life is studded with the most beautiful diamonds … diamonds formed from challenges, tears, courage and perseverance ~
Spiritual Growth builds webs covered with diamonds.
It was -3 degrees outside at 6.30am this morning, and I must admit that it was very tempting to stay snuggled up under the doona and not brave the very frosty morning! But I knew the magic that awaited me as the sun crept up over the horizon and began to melt the silvery, glittering icing that coated everything. Mother Nature would look her most mystical best … and I was not going to miss one tiny moment of this breathtaking sight. So, on with the 4 layers of clothing to keep warm, a quick drink of wheatgrass, and I was ready to go.
As I stepped outside, the light of a magnificent dawn was slowly creeping over the horizon as if not wanting to disturb that unearthly silence, that is heard and felt, just before Mother Nature calls all the elements to greet the day with their beautiful songs of joy. I quietly made my way along the path without even saying my usual morning gratitude prayer … just experiencing the moment seemed prayer enough … I was walking through the cathedral of the Universe. Gradually the sun rose into the clearest blue sky above, and the frost began to melt. Tiny water droplets plummeted from the trees above, mist rose from the earth and floated into the atmosphere, and every blade of grass turned from silver to green.
It was then that I noticed this magical web strung between the wires, and the diamonds that shone so magnificently in the morning light … and gave enormous gratitude for its message.
Message from Nature Spirit:
The spider’s web holds great symbolism for anyone traveling a journey on the physical plane of life. Its glorious web is constructed with skill, patience and care. Every strand is woven from the silken thread which comes from within the spider itself; every strand is constructed with purpose and passion; every strand goes towards expressing the wonder and beauty of an unfolding story of creation. Then there are those times when Mother Nature breathes a little extra magic into these wonderful creations, touching them with dewdrops that shine like diamonds in the morning sun.
You too are constructing your beautiful web of life … a web that will often be broken and torn by struggles and challenges, destroyed by the strong winds of doubt and fear, pulled apart by those who love to put down dreams, and washed away by the tears of so called failure. But, just as with the spider, with courage and strength, and growth from within, you too can choose to rebuild your web … a web that is covered with diamonds. Remember, diamonds are created under pressure, over time, and with a great deal of perseverance from the Earth. We would like you to understand that the whole of creation is singing for joy at the beauty of the web you are weaving. You are so loved!Tweet
