Like the spokes of the wheel and web,
The strongest links in your life
Are the positive streams of consciousness
That underlay the fabric of your thought,
Woven into a matrix or blueprint -
A complex of highways and by-ways.
The highways lead directly to goals.
The by-ways are the abstractions and pitfalls.
Unlike the spider we travel both paths
On the journey to realise our destiny.
I was fascinated to learn that only the connecting links between the main “spokes” on the spiders web are sticky. Hence the spider travels along the main outward radiating “spokes” of the web to avoid being stuck like its victims.
