India teaches us about "The four principles of spirituality." 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" There could be absolutely nothing which we experienced could have been any other way. Not even in the least important detail. It cannot be said "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 exacty the riht moment, neither earlier not later. When we are ready for it, for that something new in our life, it is there, ready to begin. The final principle is - "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. There is no coincidence that you are here reading this. If these words strike a chord, it is because you meet the requirements and understand that not a single snowflake falls accidentally in the wrong place! Be good to yourself. Love your whole being and always be happy.

"Whomsoever you encounter is the right one" Are you saying, that if a thief knocks on our door that we should open because he is the right person at that moment or should we call the police before we open so that he can be caught?

Don't be ridiculous. Clearly that is not what was meant at all. It means that there is a lesson in everything and whatever happens was meant to happen so that we can receive the lesson.

So if a thief knocks on our door, the lesson is, don't open the door, it's a thief.

This is so true. Our happiness cannot be dependent upon external factors, only how we choose to look at them. Happiness and fulfillment in life comes from inside. :)
