how to solve the puzzle of your life
Do you think that it’s possible that
the people in our lives,
and the immediate environment that we live in,
is a fully integrated system, whole, and connected.
What would happen if we began to see ourselves, and each day we encounter, as a part that is functioning out of this whole and connected system?
What if we knew that the answers we’re looking for each day are floating somewhere in this integrated system?
Want to discover how to find the pieces and fit them together?
Want to discover how each day is a puzzle for you to solve?
Would you believe that each day can hold the excitement of a treasure hunt?
Decide what the pressing situation
or problem in your life is right now.
Learn to boil it down and simplify it into
one or two sentences,
and then pare those sentences down to a question
One single question that becomes your question of the day
It can be something you need to figure out or understand about yourself, life, other people, or a particular situation – anything that is truly ‘puzzling’ you
You have to really want to find this answer or the system won’t work
with the certain knowledge
that we will always find what we look for
Your purpose over the next few days, or maybe weeks,
is to look for and watch for any person, place or thing
that will lead you to find your answer
You are now entering the world of your soul,
So you need to recognize the language it speaks
The soul speaks in metaphor, pictures, and quiet whispers
I was once in a bookstore
searching for the answer to a concept I was struggling with
I turned toward a bookshelf and noticed for a split second
that one particular book really stood out from the others
If I had not been paying attention, I easily could have missed it
But I was paying attention
and I found the answer I was looking for and more in that book
I know I’m not alone in experiences like this.
With the connectedness of all life in mind,
we watch and listen very carefully
to who is around us and what is happening
Always with the ‘question of the day’ in mind
and remember the question we asked!
The next step is to have the
courage to act on the answer we receive
Sometimes this is easy (buy the book that stood out on the shelf)
and sometimes it’s not so easy
(be completely honest with your friend about how you feel)
Very often it takes courage to act on the answer we receive,
because it requires growth on our part
We have to become more today than we were yesterday
