We are all puzzle pieces. The universe is a vast puzzle beyond our comprehension. Each one of us has a unique piece that fits just perfect in the world.
WE spend so much time worrying about if we are ok, who we are, where do we fit in, wanting to please, wanting to change OUR piece, etc... once we can just accept that our piece was divinely created and is the perfect piece we will find peace.
WE are trying to figure out the universe's puzzle. our role in the universe is NOT to be the whole puzzle but to be the piece of the puzzle that completes it. by allowing our piece to fit in the puzzle we easily become a part of the greatest puzzle and then it creates the bigger picture.
actually, we are always a part of the universe as a piece is part of the puzzle...the bigger picture! our struggles are for nothing because our piece IS our piece. it is our lot in life so to speak. we need to accept that, own it, love it and be proud of the role we play in the universe just the way WE are. there are no pieces that do not fit. you just have to let the "puzzle maker" tweak and turn your piece to get it to fit. that "puzzle maker' is a higher part of you! it KNOWS what to do...let it do its job!
we are not the entire universe...by ourselves without the puzzle. we will always be a part of the universe but for it to be complete we need to be the piece....kind like when i say to you, "be the piece of peace".
some pieces are short, tall , skinny, plump, jewish , christian, muslim, balck white, mean, friendly, rich, poor, differences in learning etc...you get the picture!
Unique, one of a kind, cut to fit, designed to complete. When we stop making everything so hard all the time, when we stop trying to be everything to everyone...we can just be who we are. we will see that our piece is perfect for the puzzle and it was created to be divine.
be your piece of peace ~

lasting, existing, serving, or effective for a time only; not permanent:
~the one thing that i am learning, not always the easy way, is that nothing stays the same. much to how i wish with all my might it did...it does not!
we write books about it. we talk about it. we give lectures about it. we discuss it. we intellectually understand the concept..but living it is not always so easy!
the difficulty lies in accepting and truly understanding that nothing ever stays the same. marriage, relationships, kids, friends, work, living situations, emotions, feelings, time, time, places, etc....nothing is permanent.
i am beginning to see that when we think it is we are setting ourselves up for something that can not possibly exist. everything changes...it has too! i never really GOT that before....although i knew it...ya i know, it is my light bulb moment!
i asked my peeps what they have to say about 'temporary', and this is what they tell me:
for our dear children and freinds...can you imagine a world where there was only permanent and no temporary. your world would be stiff, solid, rigid and cold. there would be no fluidity. there would be no growth. there would be no-thing. it simply can not be.
temporary allows for the old to wash away and for the new to come in. temporary allows for change. now some do not like change...just ask lisa! for others they thrive in it. either way, change is the only way to survive. without change there would be no air, there would be no life, there would be no movement, there would be no breath. without change one would have no reason to be.
you see, change and temporary, allow you to become all that you dream of. it allows you the opportunity to change, to move, to sail upon the wind and to grow into the beautiful being's that your heart dreams of. by changing and being temporary you are allowed to go to beautiful places within your heart and with in your mind. temporary allows, the what you call negative or bad, to be "washed" away. it seems so scary but it is really quite calming and beautiful. it is like a birth...exhausting and weary yet rewarding and miraculous beyond your wildest dreams.
nothing is being taken away from you when things change. things are being given to you for you to mold and create into new opportunities and new adventures. when you change the way you look at the world the world changes with you. allow yourself the beautiful gift of change. allow the temporary to embrace your life and take you where you need and ultimately want to go. allow temporary to be your friend and know that temporary has your back.
allow temporary to be what it is....fluid and ever changing to bring you what you want in your life.
if nothing ever changed, can you imagine what the world would look like?? if nothing ever changed there would be no reason for any of you or for anything.
allow your faces and bodies to change, allow them to be temporary homes that house your soul...for now. take care of them and nourish them and allow them to change. there is no growing old. Some of you change your faces and your bodies to look like you did when you were 20. that was temporary, 20 was then...today is now...it has changed...and that is ok. it, your temporary body, is supposed to change or else it would not. allow the change to be beautiful. allow the wrinkles and the curves. allow the youth to live within and allow outer age to show your wisdom, courage and strength.
everything is temporary for a reason...allow children to grow up and out, allow relationships to end, allow new life to begin, allow new work to come to you...do not allow the fear of change to hold you back for your soul is longing to breath. it can only breath when you allow temporary into your space. allow temporary to be your friend and take you where your soul needs to be! we love you and whatever you decide to do is fine with us....we are only here to tell you what we know...the living is up to you!
~loving and affectionately called "the peeps" by Lisa (J.) ;)
WOW! and that is why i love, love, love my peeps so much. they teach me, they help me to remember what is important and they bring such deep love i can feel it in every cell.
i remember why i am blessed. i remember that i am blessed to have had what i once had; a loving family, 2 beautiful kids who are grown up now, i had a husband who loved me as much as he could, a beautiful dog names Brownie, a best friend named Tracey and a house that i owned and raised my family in. i have so much to give thanks for. it has taken me allllll Thanksgiving week to find this in my heart. i felt like the Grinch...with a very little heart and NO love to give at all. that sucks when all you want is to be you! i still have a little ways to go....but isn't that just life?
so for now (as i am learning is so fleeting) i sit and feel lighter. i feel better. i feel like me. i feel like i have given birth yet again...this time to a beautiful little thing called change. i will nurture this moment for change is sure to be temporary.
i needed to understand that in order to move on. i hope that it helps you too!
hey we are all in this together, right? that is one thing that will NEVER change! the unity of peeps...here there and everywhere!!!! xoxox
much love and light for this moment

Give thanks not to the maker, but to you the one that has been made.
Give thanks to your world, for it is your world that holds you up in time of need. Give thanks to the trees, for they are the ones who take away your burdens.
Give thanks to the moon and the stars, for they are the ones who you look up to in your hours of need.
Give thanks to the animals, for they teach you about unconditional love.
Give thanks to those who hurt you the most, for they could not hurt you if they did not love you the most.
Finally, give thanks to you. Without you, there would be no us and without us there would be no you...You see we are all ONE.
Together we create beauty, wonder, love, and joy....Live in gratitude not just this week but for always. It is with great gratitude your heart will become free. With a free heart and an open mind the unlimited potential of your truth will become alive within your soul. Sleep well, love well, live well, and BE well.
With love and admiration to you, our 'heroes' in the flesh,
Lisa's 'magnificent peeps'
This is the time when people unite with no judgment, no politics, no separation due to race, religion, creed, or ethnicity! Open your hearts to friends, family and strangers alike. Open your hearts to your friends and family from the past, those in the present and welcome in new friends to your space.
This holiday season (and everyday) it is important to mend broken fences, rise above perceived wrong doings and live in the love that you were born to be. It is a time for being in the moment and celebrating the light that YOU were born to be.
Celebrate your gifts, celebrate each other and most of celebrate YOU. For many it has been a tough rode but it has been a rode none the less and has gotten you to today. Find GRATITUDE AND THANKS!
Be thankful for those who have crossed your path. They were spiritual backpackers, as you are, just doing their thing.
As my beautiful beings of light, known as my 'Peeps', so often remind me, I will remind you too...
be the music
be the air
be the space in between
be the magic
be the forgiveness you seek
be the beauty that is all around you
be the abundance
be the stars
be the light
be the answers that you seek
be all that you seek
be who you were born to be...
Happy Thanksgiving and be kind to one another! :)
