Weaving is a method of textile production in which two distinct sets of yarns or threads are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric or cloth. Similar methods are knitting, felting, and braiding or plaiting. The longitudinal threads are called the warp and the lateral threads are the weft or filling.
- Marriage of two component parts
- Fragments being integrated - The creation of a weave is a transition, a journey. Symbolising the journey of the human mind and life. Each layer that is formed is a new experience.
- Weaving thoughts, emotions
- Bondage, Act of binding: Human expression
- If a thread is pulled on, the entire connection between the weave gets lost
- Complex, intricate, stories being formed with the overlapping of each thread
As weavers of our own lives, we see objects of the ordinary world, external or internal, beings, events, feelings, and actions as multicolored threads giving meaning and linking us to life. While observed from the outside world, these disparate and unrelated objects and beings take on for us their "usual" appearance and separateness for us. However, seen from the level of our awakened awareness, they jointly develop a wonderful and harmonious relationship analogous to the threads in a tapestry.
In a spiritual context, the thread also represents the energies and magnetic stimulation and intuition coming from the soul. Therefore, we become the channels for the expression of our soul, and the threads linking us to it are a combination of our own thoughts and emotions blending with those of the soul. Together they form the tapestry of our life.
