Animal Zen Masters: The Spider

Nature delivers the greatest Zen masters in learning how to live in the now.

The web of the spider is an ingenious object. One sticky thread after the other creating the base and then weaving the circles until it’s finished.
It takes a day to make.

After it’s finished the spider retreats in a corner out of sight and waits. All flies have seen him making the web, so avoid being near it. But the spider waits and  waits until the flies forget and one gets trapped in the sticky threads.
Then it moves.

Patience may be one of the largest bases for success
