The Four Principles of Spirituality

Picture credit:

Edwin Ng, the bloke who sent us that piece of/on S.H.I.T., forwarded us something else that is even more overpowering… a great foundational philosophy for life!

The First Principle : “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 : 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 : “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.

This is the Fourth Principle, the final one : “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.

Each time I read these four principles I feel more at peace with the things happening in and around my life.

Be Good To Yourself.

Love With Your Whole Being.

Always Be Happy

Thank You, Edwin...and John Ng (we 'tolerated' each other all the way from Standard One to Form Five) whose email dovetailed Edwin's.
