The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

The big spider in the middle of the web

So the whole Buddhist path on one level can be a way of understanding how to loosen and eventually drop our desperate grasping at this sense of me. Right there at the center of the universe and definitely the big spider in the middle of the web that we are all weaving. Which we imagine if we can only keep satisfied, if we can only please, if we can only keep feeling that it’s worthwhile, we will be happy. And not recognizing that that is the cause of all our suffering.
