But … I have decided to use “tapestry” for our prompt today and I take the opportunity to lift a tip of the veil to give you all a look inside my personal philosophy.

Than he/she starts to create his/her tapestry and while looking at that process one can see how the tapestry becomes as was the idea … the colours are coming together making patterns, creatures, flowers and so on are becoming real … at the end the weaver sits back looks at his/her work and will smile, maybe will applaud and yell “eureka!” Another wonderful tapestry has been created and can be sold … or just put on the wall at their home.

I think that our lives can be compared with a tapestry. As we are born the Weaver (God or Higher Self) starts his work with us. He looks at us and sees our future already, but he doesn’t know how our path would be going … which decisions we make … say ‘karma’ … The Weaver cannot interfere in our life. We are making our own mistakes, making the wrong decisions and so on. But … the Weaver has an idea about our lives. He has a design in mind for us and that design he starts weaving on his weaving loom.
flamboyant colours all over -
Our life is a tapestry and in every tapestry there are little faults or mistakes, but those faults and mistakes have their charm also, they make the tapestry unique … our lives are unique … we all have goals in our lives and we all hope to reach those goals. Sometimes such a goal is in reach, but it can also be out reach … Than we have to re-design our goals and start all over again with our path … In our life we will come across various paths, ways, waters, countries and crossroads … on every crossroad we have to decide which way we will go … all those choices are part of the design the Weaver has in mind for his tapestry, for us.

At the end of our lives, our loved ones will look at our tapestry and the Weaver looks at it also. Our loved ones and the Weaver are in my opinion the same entity, the same energy. Because those who are around us, living as well as deceased, are co-workers of the Weaver. I believe that we all are planted in the right surroundings, in the right families, in the right countries and in the threads of the tapestry of life.
as I look at my tapestry -
it was great!
