A lot of our life time is spent not knowing. Many things that we are comfortable not knowing. Not knowing the name of a stranger. Not knowing the number of your credit card. Not knowing the capital of Malta. What makes us comfortable with this is the fact that we know there are answers. Then, there are many other things that we want to know, like if a job is going to work out, like if a certain decision is the right one. I saw this question shaped cloud in the sky the other day and it set me thinking.
I don’t know what is in store for me. I don’t know how the next few months will unfold. And then ,I come across this article about the principles of metaphysics which leads me to believe that that is what applies to us all from the moment one is born and until our last breath.
The first principle states: ” whomsoever you encounter is the right one”. No one comes into our life by chance. Everyone around us is there 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 what we have experienced could have been any other way. What happened is the only thing that could have taken place and must have taken place for us to learn from, evolve, and move forward. Even if it defies our understanding at the time.
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.
The fourth principle states: ” what is over, is over”. It is that simple. When something comes to an end, it helps us evolve from the experience, to let go and move on.
Reading about this struck a chord. I now understand that my being here and now is because I meet the requirements. Not a single drop of rain falls accidently in the wrong place!
Is it a coincidence that you are here reading this??
