For him, the choice to make a web means sustenance; for me, the choice to knock it down prevents yet another eerie feeling if I were to walk into it and get the critter on me!
We both have our own motives, our own decisions, our own work.
We, also, weave our own webs each day as we make our own choices: what we will do, what we won’t do, what our priorities are and how we will do things. Not to make a choice is even a choice.
We all have the gift of free will. In today’s pandemic world, we can choose to be fearful or we can choose to be loving…to feel stressed or calm…to feed drama or peace…to be safe or at risk. Many times we take for granted all the choices we have, sometimes not realizing the choices we make as we rotely go about our day.
Each day we weave our life’s web. We can create it exactly as we want or we allow it be created, directed or torn down by others.
We may not be aware, but the effects of the choices we make ripple into the lives of others like the circles in the calm surface of water when a pebble breaks its plane. Those ripples can be glorious or devastating.
For Mr. Spider, a decision to build elsewhere would be prudent, but he doesn’t ‘listen’ to the daily reminders I give.
How will you weave your web today? Will you listen to and be aware of the ripples you create?
