It is often said to be a metaphor for life, representing magic or the understanding of universe. Threads that interlink and grow to one new whole.
I went online to look for quotes – because where else do you look for weaving quotes, if not on the world wide web?
The following thoughts resonate with me, expressed by the man who was the emperor of Rome in the years 161-180, he was also a stoic philosopher. In his own words:
Never forget that the universe is a single living organism possessed of one substance and one soul, holding all things suspended in a single consciousness and creating all things with a single purpose that they might work together spinning and weaving and knotting whatever comes to pass.Marcus Aurelius
Accept whatever comes to you woven in the pattern of your destiny, for what could more aptly fit your needs?Marcus Aurelius
Somewhere here – I’m just thinking out loud now – the symbolic weaving of a fabric and the longevity of (precious) metals have something in common. They both remain over time, either because they are events that interlink with one another and cannot be undone, or because precious metals cannot be destroyed.
What does weaving mean to you?
