Annoyance or opportunity?

Written by

This time of year, spiders seem to be spinning their webs all day and all night long. Maybe that is why spider webs have become a symbol for Halloween: a little eery, reminders of invisible worlds; annoying when we don’t see them and run into that delicate web that seems to cling to everything. And who is really fond of spiders anyway?!

I appreciate spiders at a distance. My mother taught me never to harm one unless it is toxic and in attack mode. I have very little tolerance for black spiders, since I’ve gotten bitten a few times, and believe me, those bites are nasty.

When you have the opportunity to look at a spider web from just the right angle, against the sunlight, the beauty of its construction and magical fabric is breath-taking.

Recently I took a photo which revealed its rainbow-colored iridescent magic and sacred geometry. It made me think about perspective: how often do we judge someone or some situation based on our perception, our perspective? What can be an annoyance when we unexpectedly run into it, can be a blessing of meaning and beauty when perceived at just the right distance. Instinctive reaction can be both helpful, as in the case of real danger, or harmful, as in the case of imagined danger. I don’t like spiders crawling over me, and I have an instinctive response of ridding myself of the intruder. And, with an open heart and a peaceful mind, I can appreciate the hidden beauty of nature’s gifts. It’s all a matter of perspective.
