I see life as a big puzzle board upon which pieces and clues of a difficult and unending riddle is scattered. In our attempt to solve this riddle, we look everywhere for clues — in the challenges that come our way, in the people that join us in our journey, in the roads we take, in the humps that deter us in our travel. But the greatest clue, I think, is inside us. The pieces of the puzzle are there, hidden in the contents of our hearts and in the strength of our faith, for in this puzzle, we are an important piece, a significant clue, and an indispensable player, all rolled into one.
As to the answer, I believe it had always been given: God. God in his many manifestations. The problem lies in our failure to accept His significance, in our inability to recognize Him among the clues we stumble upon. So we tend to reject Him, disprove Him, validate Him. We tend to choose the seemingly easier road, only to eventually realize that life would have been more meaningful if we simply embraced and accepted Him.
