For Personal Development, I Often Turn to Nature. “To shed your skin, every old skin, one by one and then walk away, unencumbered, into the morning.” — Tony Kushner
Personal development and spiders may seem like a strange contrast. Some people find spiders creepy. I think they are extremely fascinating. They rid my garden of potentially dangerous insects, create magnificent works of art, and look absolutely beautiful in the sunlight.
Most spiders tend to live one or two years. They live in a variety of habitats. Definitely predators, finding and capturing prey.
A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
