off the spider’s web
turning it silver
A spider’s web conjures up images of entanglement, entrapment . . . of being unable to escape. You are caught in the web, unable to move, at the mercy of the spider. And spiders don’t have mercy. What are you to do?
A Touch of Heaven
Walk the web with nonstick soles . . . a nonstick soul. Don’t be tied to your ideas; don’t be bound to your beliefs. You need the touch of heaven to travel the web with ease. Step lightly and vary your speed; don’t get pinned down by an excess of greed.
A Silver Path
As a trader, greed holds the top spot on the list of temptations. Money is seductive and is like the spider—poisonous if you’re trapped by it. So let the silver of the web be the silver created through spiritual development and not the silver tarnished by covetousness. Let the silver strands of the web reflect the moonlight and guide you to your spiritual home.
