God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.
Today I see life as one vast jigsaw puzzle. With its interlocking, tessellated pieces falling into place forming a rich picture once complete. But we don’t see this totality until the end.
Like a jigsaw puzzle, first we gather all the side pieces, forming the framework of our life on this earth plane. The rules. The boundaries. Our environment. Our family. Then we slowly find the pieces that lock onto those. We live our early years supported by the fabric of what is familiar. This is the frame of our puzzle. The foundation pieces.
Then seemingly random pieces start appearing on the scene. We encounter events that don’t make sense. We bump into new acquaintances, who leave a mark on our soul, because they feel like “us”. We find ourselves in weird outlandish situations. We’re attracted to these because it felt right at the time and the vibe was pinging off the charts. But the connective puzzle pieces haven’t yet appeared between these and the supporting “frame” of our life. Just some arbitrary moments that made sense at the time. A feeling of rightness.
Yet if you persevere and keep a keen eye on the sequence of life, you start living the connective puzzle pieces between your frame and that one lone random piece in the middle. Things start to fall into place. Slowly that one lone piece starts to evoke a deeper meaning, as all the supporting pieces start to appear. These are part of the rules that this dimension is bounded by. Because there are no random events. What appears as random is just something that has happened out of turn.
Life is all about experiencing each next puzzle piece. It’s never ever linear. Some times it’s accidental. Much of the time it doesn’t make sense. Except only in the sense that whenever these lone puzzle pieces appear, they’re always familiar. Because it has the same shape, the same feel, the same vibration...a recognition that it’s yours.
This is where the beauty of trust comes in…and never ever doubting or forcing an outcome. Forcing a piece to fit into a place it doesn’t belong will just result in you having to re-enact and repeat that part again.
The essence of this lesson is to trust that all the pieces will appear, maybe not in order, but all will unfold in due time. You’ll be shown what you need to know, because this has all be divinely designed and we’re only being shown as much as we can handle…in order to keep playing the game. Let’s not rush it. Let’s savour each piece. After all, we don't want to see the finale yet. There's a long way to go.
