Cosmic Weaver

“Tis true without lying, certain and most true. That which is below, is like that which is above, and that which is above is like that which is below.” Isaac Newton

This adage is traditionally attributed to the Emerald Tablets of Hermes Trismegistus.

I’ve always been fascinated by the symbolism of spiders as master weavers of  destinies, and language, and the similarity of stories between different nations.  She is often called the mother of language and a great storyteller as she weaves her language upon her loom.

Spider’s web is akin to a mandala, the Sanskrit meaning of mandala is circle. The circle is a symbol of perfection, eternity, unity and completeness, and the mandala  is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe. In Hindu and Buddhist traditions, the centre represents the beginning point of contemplation of and devotion to the divine.

Creating mandalas help the focusing of attention of practitioners and adepts, and as a spiritual guidance tool, for establishing a sacred space, as an aid to meditation and trance induction. In ancient Greek and Roman traditions this central point often signified the self, as it is in Jungian psychology too. It is always at the centre in which we find our calm, and heart- centred sacred space!

Spiders have the extraordinary capability of creating, weaving and spinning their own webs. This ability shows and teaches us the gift of creation. We have the power to create what happens in our lives, to us and to others, by the choices we make. Consequently, we create our own reality according to our thoughts, feelings, actions, and reactions, and we make an impact upon the world and universe through our presence.

Existentially, the connection between spider and her web and the cosmos too, is intrinsically and extrinsically linked, as we are all connected through the heartfelt strings of love, the filaments of cosmic web.  They help remind us of our inter-connectedness to all life! Spider is thus, the cosmic weaver, in a cosmic web of universal galaxies. Awesome!  🙂 ❤

Feasting Bee

Feasting Bee

I was observing the layers of flowers,

within a newly headed rosette bloom,

when I chanced upon a bee feasting,

and dance upon the blooms.

Her  labor was a tune , bzzz bzzz,

her idleness a boon, and

collecting all that nectar

was a joyful thing to do.  🙂

Tranquil Waters


The silence of nature,

soothes the body and soul.

Become as quiet as a lake,

and keep peace with your soul.

I love galahs!

” When I look into the eyes of an animal, I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I feel a soul.”  Anthony Douglas Williams.


The galah (Eolophus roseicapilla) also known as the rose-breasted cockatoo.

I heard a familiar  ‘wuaaaaaaawk’, and looked out my bedroom window and watched quietly as a couple of galahs rested in the tall blue gum tree in my front garden. They knew that I was there, and for a while quietly observed me :).


They apparently didn’t mind my intrusion and before long they continued with their antics, hanging upside down, feeding, playing and munching on wood.


The term galah is derived from gilaa, a word found in Yuwaalaraay and neighbouring Aboriginal languages, and colloquially we call them ‘cockies’.

It was utterly captivating and delightful watching them and I felt most privileged and blessed as they had allowed me into their precious lives, and hearts. 🙂 ❤
