The four principles of spirituality

A very close friend sent me the four priciciples of spirituality recently which I have pasted below this post.

The thing about these principles is that when you read it, you tend to associate various events and happenings in your life with each of the four and they help you to tackle situations that your mind has been mulling over for a long time. 
But if u look closely through them you will find that they are all anyway solutions which you had convinced urself about in the first place even while mulling and mulling trying to figure out other reasons to explain the situations. 
But even so , just reading them is what puts you a ease, a feeling of reassurance, that everything happens for a reason. And sometimes, like in this case it comes at you at a time when you're most troubled and, well, to reiterate,  just reading them gives you a sense of reassurance, that everything happens for a reason. 

The First Principle states:

"Whomsoever you encounter is the right one"

This means that no one comes into our life by chance. Everyone who is around us, anyone with whom we interact, represents something, whether to teach us something or to help us improve a current situation.

The Second Principle states:

"Whatever happened is the only thing that could have happened"

Nothing, absolutely nothing of that which we experienced could have been any other way. Not even in the least important detail. There is no "If only I had done that differently, then it would have been different". No. What happened is the only  thing that could have taken place and must have taken place for us to learn our lesson in order to move forward. Every single situation in life which we encounter is absolutely perfect, even when it defies our understanding and our ego.

The Third Principle states:

"Each moment in which something begins is the right moment"

Everything begins at exactly the right moment, neither earlier nor later. When we are ready for it, for that something new in our life, it is there, ready to begin.

The Fourth Principle states:

"What is over, is over"

It is that  simple. When something in our life ends, it helps our evolution. That is why, enriched by the recent experience, it is better to let go and move on.
