Years ago I had a strange vision during alpha state. That is what I call the moment right before we fall asleep and this state can bring about some interesting occurrences.
In this particular case, I was a fly caught in a spider’s web. The more I struggled to get out, the more entangled I became. I saw the spider crawl out of the web hole rushing toward me, twisting me in a silky substance, spinning and spinning until I could no longer move. I stopped struggling.
And then I felt it.
It was like a large sharpened steel needle piercing the top of my head and shooting down my spine electrifying me. Suddenly, I felt my consciousness liquefy as I was drained out into the body of the thirsty spider.
It was black and quiet for a moment.
I felt satisfied as I retreated back to my web hole.
What do I gather that experience was about? I’m not entirely sure but it made me look at life cycles in a new way. I used to think that predator and prey were opposites. I suppose the appearance of separate bodies lends to that illusion but life is life and all life is one life.
The predator and the prey are one. Sustenance and challenge is what they offer one another.
