The Puzzle

puzzle piecesWhen most people begin on their path to self exploration, their inner quest, or whatever you want to call it, they seek the magic, or the rituals, or maybe even the secret to self-fulfillment. They begin subscribing, searching, reading, and discussing their journey with others. They may obsess about the “right” way to go about their personal exploration. Looking for a “quick fix”, they embrace each new idea with voracity, a determination that, “this will give me the answer.”

But once that journey continues, they start to figure out that it’s not just about the books, or cards, or pilgrimages, or classes, or teachings. Those are just pieces to a giant puzzle. Tiny pieces that represent the whole spiritual puzzle we are working to solve.

Because here’s the deal folks: there is no right or wrong way to grow. There is no one answer to the Universe. Ultimately, we are just a one-of-a-kind million piece puzzle and our life’s purpose is to figure out which pieces fit into our puzzle. If we are all unique beings, wouldn’t it stand to reason that no two puzzles are alike? And therefore, no two puzzles will have exactly the same pieces?

The farther along  you get in your spiritual growth, the more you begin to understand  that everything you ever needed was right there inside of you and all you had to do is listen. The yoga, the mediation, the spiritual retreats, the cleansing diets, the seminars – those were just clues to help you solve your puzzle, to awaken an inner knowing that you have always had.

Trust yourself and take baby steps. Good Luck!

(By the way, there are no secrets, just pieces of the puzzle that have yet to connect.)
