In India, Four Laws of Spirituality are taught:
The first law says:
“The person who arrives is the right person.” No one comes to our life by chance,
all the people who surround us, who interact with us, who we encounter, are there for a reason.
The second law says: “What happens is exactly what’s supposed to happen.”
Nothing, absolutely nothing that happens in our lives could have happened in any other way.
Not even the most insignificant detail. There is no: “If I had done such a thing…
this other thing would have happened…“ No. What happened was exactly what’s supposed to happen,
and it had to be that way so we could learn the necessary lessons and move forward.
The third law says: “Any time you start, is the right time.” It all starts at the right time, not before, not after.
When we are ready for something new to begin in our lives, it begins.
And the fourth and last law says: “When something ends, it ends.” Just like that.
If something ended in our lives, it was for our own good, so it’s better to leave it there and move on,
already enriched with that experience.

I saw my own reflection in the day…
inquiry for today~ what is your moment of reckoning today?
If there is no wind, row.
