Imagine that YOU are the web of life.
Feel yourself extending down into tree roots,
Misting silently to meld with the air,
Arching throughout all space and time,
Floating seamlessly throughout the waters of the oceans.
You are stretched out, infinite, embracing all that exists in the universe.
You are the fabric we are all made of.
You are the animating force;
You are the universal instructions
Within the cells of every living being
That take lifeless matter
And transform it into the mystery of Life,
The miracle of Creation.
YOU hold all things together
You weave the moons and stars with your gossamer threads
You keep the planets spinning in their perfect ellipses
You keep the Suns burning
You make the comets fly
And you push the outer reaches of the universe
Ever to greater distances,
How does it feel
To be the up and the down,
The weft and the warp,
The hot and the cold,
To be everything that exists?
To be the wind
To be the sea
To be a part of everyone who ever lived?
Imagine now that you are the force within the crocus,
The first flower of spring.
How does the bulb know
When to send up its tiny green tendrils,
Unfurling toward the light?
How does it know which way to grow to get to the sun?
How do its cells know just how to split and multiply
To produce the perfect green leaves
And delicate purple blossoms
Emerging from Mother Earth
Pressing themselves through the layers of dead leaves and decaying matter from last fall
Until they emerge, brilliant and miraculous, smiling in the sunlight?
It is magic.
It is inspired by this force
That pervades us all:
The web of life,
The fabric of the cosmos,
You are the act of Creation;
You are the Sustaining force.
We are all interconnected;
We are all woven together;
We are always safe
In each other’s embrace.
What we do to each other,
We do to ourselves
Honor and respect
All aspects of the web
For the Earth is You,
And YOU are all of Creation.
You ARE the web of life.
