This summer I did something I haven’t done in years. I was visiting family and there was a large puzzle on the kitchen table in the process of being completed. Working on a puzzle looks so boring, and I hardly consider it as an activity worth spending time on. But I was on vacation, and I really wanted to spend time with family members, so I started working on the puzzle with them. I have to say, it is way more fun to work on a puzzle than it is to watch someone else work on a puzzle.

I suppose that is a good analogy for life as well: it’s so much fun to be a thriving part of an expanding and fulfilling life than it is to watch someone else thriving and expanding. Luckily, we all get to choose how our life expands through the Law of Attraction, and if there is something we want, we need only give our full attention to it and allow it into our experience. There is another great parallel to life and a puzzle: if you do the whole puzzle in anticipation of how you will feel when you put the last piece in place, you will have a lot of hard work for a small payoff at the end. And most likely, like life, you probably won’t feel a huge thrill when the last piece is in place…it will feel like the next logical step, and you will probably be ready for another puzzle. The trick is enjoying the process of putting it together, and having lots of little thrills along the way to enjoy, knowing that the end is not the goal.

If you live your life like a beautiful puzzle, there will be some immediate advantages to you. Here are some that come to me this morning:

  1. You know you are making something beautiful.
  2. You have many triumphs along the way.
  3. Small roadblocks release into times of great progress, as you find a section of pieces that fit together.
  4. You know that there is order to it all, and you can relax into full awareness that all is well, and that everything you need is provided.
  5. You have a job: to find the next piece. Your job is not to finish it all with the next piece, nor could you if you tried to.
  6. With every piece added, the whole scene gets more and more beautiful.
  7. Problems (pieces not found) on one day get a new perspective on another day, and you “see” things you missed the previous day.
  8. Others can help you see things you were missing as well.
  9. You don’t try to force pieces that look close but don’t fit, but rather you relax and know that the right piece is out there to complete your perfect image.
  10. On some level you realize that it’s really just a game. It’s probably not your first or last puzzle, so there is no rush to complete it so that you can be deserving. You are exactly in the right place at the right time, right now…doing today’s puzzle.

I hope this makes sense to your broader knowing. Your life is like a beautiful, huge and amazing puzzle. Enjoy the progress you are making right now. Be Well, Marie-GP
