I captured this image last summer when I was trying out my new lens, it was fascinating to see this flower head just hanging by what looked like a spider’s thread.
I do not know how your day has been today, but I had super difficult night sleep, the body kept waking up and when I finally got up this morning, though the brain felt awake, the body was feeling the interrupted sleep. Not only that by mid day my brain needed sleep by the evening the body just aches, so I guess as I am writing the blog it feels like I am holding on to just like the flower.
I guess during the night I had my mind racing trying to find answers whilst the body was just trying to find relief from the relentless thoughts. And of course with lack of sleep the body requires what it des, hibernation. So I tried to watch stuff with knowledge in it, the brain got fed up and refused to track the information; so it decided to give me a feeling of my head spinning. So I decided to binge watch a sci0fi series in the hope to give the brain a relief, an low and behold that did not help either. As an adult I find day time napping unacceptable; I guess my parents always told me that napping in the day time is for the lazy people. So I decided to try and do a bit of wire wrapping, that did not agree with the human body either. So I have been hanging by a thread in the hope of inspiration and for this state of being to pass, before typing the blog entry. And I guess doing a meditation earlier helped clear the cobwebs, no I did not fall asleep, I just centred the being, uniting the mind and the body.
Have you ever woken after a night of dreams and feel like you are floating? Some say it is because part of our soul is left in the dream world and we got back into the body too quickly without fully integrating mind body and soul. And perhaps that is what has happened today too. I had parts left in the dream world, parts being present, parts searching the future. I must have tried to hold on to a fiction whilst trying to link back to reality.
A thread has two ends, it connect two places, two objects, two states – it create a 2D reality which feels squashed and not quite there, and of course we need that 3rddimension to make it real. Connecting one end to the other, only creates linearity, whilst give it another aspect makes it palpable makes it real, makes it materialise.
The flower tried to hold on to the source in the hopes of a future life; but in reality it was a spider giving it the impression of a future. How does this reality resonate with you as a metaphor to your life?
Are you hanging on just by a thread? Or are you fully living you’re here and now?
