Conditioned Puzzle

Because of the way we become conditioned, we see life as if there are puzzle pieces that need to fit into certain spots. And because of this we are constantly working on completing the puzzle…

The issue with having to constantly arrange life as if it were a puzzle is it’s based on our conditioning. Even if you make up a story the puzzle is complete, the mind begins a new conditioned puzzle almost immediately. Life is continuous, it’s broken up into segments (puzzle pieces) by a mind that’s in a constant state of agitation. If this wasn’t true the puzzle (life) would be seen as complete and life wouldn’t constantly need to be arranged to your liking. It isn’t because of anything right or wrong that makes what is seen this way, it’s because the mind has been conditionally trained to do instead of be so it’s only doing what it’s trained to do.

The Conditioned Mind sees puzzles all over the place. The shortest line in the supermarket, traffic, diets, to do list, politics, and so on, all this is strictly seen to put another piece of the puzzle in place; which makes one think the piece will make life perfect. Let’s say everyday is a new puzzle, that would mean I completed roughly 23,000 puzzles during my life and all for the purpose to constantly have life the way I thought it should be. After all nobody purposely gets in the lane that has the most traffic, but if you did nothing would really change except for maybe not having to constantly arrange life to complete your conditioned puzzle…
