In the western world, you may constantly juggle priorities and responsibilities. Planning and frequent direction towards the future influence the feeling of anxiousness, restlessness, and the inability to let puzzle pieces fall into place. Letting pieces settle isn't an excuse to be lazy but rather, an opportunity to allow the flow of life to run its course. Whether you're an active participant of your life or not, that's up to you.
In Heather Ash Amara's book, Warrior Goddess Training: Becoming the Woman You Are Meant to Be, she discusses the idea of cyclical thinking and the significance of cycles. When you let puzzle pieces settle... you allow the cycle of beginning-end-beginning, old chapters, new chapters, and transitions to flow. In the western world, you may grow accustom to linear thinking through frequent planning of the future (e.g., "If I get A, then I'll get B.") and when A doesn't happen, feelings of confusion and chaos tend to surface. It happens to the best of us (including me!) and this is where cyclical thinking comes into play.
With cyclical thinking - there is freedom to embark on detours, room for unplanned adventures, and the understanding that it's necessary for the waves to settle before setting sail. When current ideas and understandings hit the glass ceiling, pieces shatter to form a new idea/understanding that allows you to transition and flow through the cycles of life.
