I have always liked the weaving loom as a metaphor for weaving the absolute and relative together into one cloth. The absolute can be the warp, the relative can be the woof, and the shuttle or the jade works , can spin them all together into one cloth. It’s not that we have to make them into one cloth, they are always manifesting together in simultaneous realization . The jade works is the activity of life itself, the total dynamic functioning of the activity of the universe. Sometimes translated as: The Whole Works. Always right here. All-at-oneness.
Weaving loom analogy! In life, weave the absolute and the relative into one clothes. The absolute is the warp The relative is the woof the Jade Works is the shuttle spinning appearances into one beautiful tapestry. one beautiful simultaneous realization The Whole Works!
The absolute and relative are two sides of the same coin

You need a loom, the warp and weft to weave: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ivsWLcKeCHyEjSGq1

The weft is threaded through the warp. Warp is the structure onto which the pattern is woven. In weaving there is always a preexisting structure for the fabric and/or the narratives to emerge.
Spider needs no loom--no external tool is necessary. The weaver, the loom and the thread have been merged in one body in the case of the spider. Spider's web is the structure and the fabric at the same time. This nuance between the tapestries of Arachne and the spider's web is important not to miss in the intriguing interpretation of the transformation of the young woman Arachne into Arachne the spider. What did the punishment really entail?
