Let's face it, we've all tried Forcing Mismatching Puzzle Pieces together. And we think it works - but something's always off: The Finished Picture.
Relationships. Career Choices. The Foods You Eat.
Are they Compatible with You?
If you're not getting closer to What You Want in Life.
Incompatibility is probably why.
The Many Pieces of Life:
Life is a Puzzle.
And that shouldn't be seen as a Mystery ... ( Please get that joke *cough* )
To Better Explain,
Life is One Big Picture - it has many pieces that make it Whole.
Like Puzzle Pieces,
All Things throughout Life have Natural Compatibilities as well as Incompatibilities.
It's just how things are made.
Somethings Fit Together and Somethings Don't.
From Material Items to Living Entities, this is true for All Things.
That includes us Humans.
The Purpose of the Puzzle:
The Purpose of the Puzzle is to have a Harmonious and Fully-Portrayed Picture or Product at the end.
A Working Picture, A Successful Production.
If Even 1 Piece is Mismatched, the Purpose isn't Fulfilled.
The difference is so vast that it's actually more desired to have a Missing Piece, rather than have a Mismatched One.
Pause & Think about it: Would You Rather be Temporarily In-Complete or Misrepresented and Falsified?
Matching Pieces Builds Greatness!
House Builders have to make sure that their materials and parts are compatible, otherwise issues arise.
A Fire Could Occur because of Incompatible Insulation ... Incompatible Wiring Could Cause a Fire ... Jet Fuel Heating Gas Could Cause a Fire ...
Do You See it Yet?
INCOMPATIBILITIES CAUSE FIRES! ( Oh god, what is with me on this post? xD )
The Final Product will be Faulty.
Pause & Think about it: Would You Want to Live in the House Described Above?
This is true for anything you build; Physically, Mentally, Emotionally, Spiritually, etc.
But if You Choose the Right Parts ... If You Choose Matching, Aligned Parts ... If You Choose Compatible Pieces ...
You Will Build Something Great! - A Working Whole!
Computers Wouldn't Function without the Exact, Aligned Parts.
Neither would a Phone, a Drink, a Fertilizer ...
This is the Importance of Alignment.
The Human Adaptability:
The Challenge We Face as Humans is our Greatest Strength: Adaptability. This has caused many of us to believe that we can 'Force Parts Together' or even more so, that we can Change Ourselves to Make the Parts Fit.
Be Wary of this.
Yes, Humans have the ability to change. Yes, Humans do change enough where parts that were incompatible with them before, are compatible with them now.
However, where it gets dangerous is when we Choose to Change out of Fear, rather than Joy.
Because when we Change out of Fear, we Throw Away Ourselves Easily. Our Foundation, Our Roots, Our Core Needs.
When we do that, we actually cannot Truly Change. You see, Change only works properly when it is tied to Growth.
Change & Growth are Two Parts of a Whole. You can't have one without the other.
Growth is About Building. Know Yourself, so You can Build Upon Yourself.
Yea boi, tree limbs and roots bro!
You cannot Grow if You Don't Accept Yourself as You Are Now.
You can Change into Anything You Desire, but You Must Know Where to Start.
You Must Know Your Foundation, Your Roots, Your Core Needs.
Once you know these, you can Nurture Yourself and Provide What You Need to Grow and to Grow Easily.
(Look at the Tree Picture! Feed the Roots and You Grow Branches!)
The Pieces Break:
By now, you probably understand the Importance of Alignment.
Even so, it's important to emphasize the Consequences of 'Forcing a Fit'.
The Pieces Break. The Pieces Malfunction. The Pieces Die.
If you Water a Plant with Motor Oil, an Incompatible Liquid for the Plant, the Plant is Damaged. Furthermore, this Damage causes it to Malfunction. Ultimately, the Plant is Pushed Towards Death.
Why is this?
Motor Oil Blocks an Enzyme Plants Need to Live. Motor Oil also Drains Minerals/Nutrients from Plants and the Water Surrounding them.
Motor Oil & Plants do not have a Symbiotic Relationship. They do not help each other Thrive. One Takes too Much from the Other.
Motor Oil is Meant to be Consumed by Vehicles. Plants are Meant to Live for Various Reasons.
When Two Things are Forced Together with Incompatible Purposes, this is what Naturally Occurs.
