"Jig-Saw" Meditation by Julia Drury
You have to work on the pieces of the puzzle that you can see, and trust that the other pieces will come into view in their time. Remember: Compassion is the rule and the guide, the undergirding and the reason for everything. What do you know of those missing pieces around the edge? Maybe God has kicked them off the table, or eaten them. Maybe God has pocketed them, to plunk them down in front of you at just the right moment. What do you know?
So work on the center, where you are now. What you can see.
