“The only way to make sense out of change
is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.”
– Alan Wilson Watts
Over the last week, I found myself doing some painting outside and for one section I had to clear away some cobwebs before beginning the work.
I didn’t give it any thought until the next day when I was walking by the same section and noticed that the beginnings of a small cobweb was in the very place I’d cleaned.
It made me reflect that nature truly is adaptive.
I had obviously completely disrupted a spider’s life 24 hours earlier and in response it had immediately begun building a new web.
For me, it was a beautiful metaphor for what’s happening right now.
There is massive change all around us – much of it highly disruptive.
For many, they may allow themselves to get stuck in fear and as a result inaction
Yet we can choose to immediately bounce back, like the spider, and start ‘weaving’ wherever we can and in whatever way we can.
We don’t need to know the why behind the change.
Maybe we just need to plunge into the dance?
Where can you engage more this week?
