Principles of Spirituality

"Whomsoever you encounter is the right one" 

This means that no one comes into your 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.

"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 for us to learn our lesson and move forward. Every single situation in life, which we encounter, is absolutely perfect, even when it defies our understanding and our ego.

"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.

"What is over, is over"

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

I am currently working on a four small paintings based on these principles. A visual interpretation of each.  I'll post a photo of the four pieces when I complete them.

Perfect image pairing with these principles. They provoke me to consider my faith, rather than give a knee-jerk affirmation or denial. I'm interested to see your collection and how it will reflect your understanding of these.

thank you, Michelle.

I have been contemplating it for over a week now, I have some images sketched out. It is coming together. I will definitely post a photo when I complete it.
