principles of duality

It is not important whether you are spiritual or believe in God .... But the four principles of non-dual understanding (Corollaries) apply to all from the moment one is born until our last breath !!

1. 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.
2. The Second Principle states: "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 and evolve 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.
3. The Third Principle states: "Each moment in which something begins is the right moment" ... Everything begins at exactly the right moment and ends at the right moment, neither earlier nor later. This is because we are subconsciously ready for the new experience or challenge.
4. The Fourth Principle states: "What is over, is over"... It is very simple. When something comes to an end, it helps us evolve. Hence, enriched by the recent experience, it is better to let go and move on.

Is it a coincidence that you're here reading this ??? If these words strike a chord, it's because you meet the requirements and understand that not one single snowflake falls accidentally in the wrong place !! If it doesn’t resonate, let it go.

Just be good to yourself. Always be happy ...Love like there's no tomorrow. And if tomorrow comes, well.....Love again

I am Sharing this, because this really resonated and I couldn’t have written it better.

Though these principles help some in some situations at certain age , these appear more principles of duality especially when one is bored/tired of duality . Non-dual person is never tired / bored of layers of duality and in fact he is enthusiastic in duality as well . Further these rules do not inspire one to be assertive. Nod-dual person is definitely assertive if and when required in positive. Also how a person learns lessons in life is missing.

Are these principles from any scriptures or some derived conclusions/summaries/commentaries of some person.

It makes sense to me that the meaning of do not achieve is in the spiritual context of Maya/illusion/ignorance of truth/brahman. The absolute truth of brahman is that brahman is everywhere. Brahman is absolute/true reality and brahman is not hidden from us, we hide brahman from ourselves with maya, Maya includes our false beliefs.

"Brahman is all there is. So what is this world? The statement above says it is mithya, false. But what does this false mean? It means changing, impermanent, perishable, superimposed, and dependent on something else for its existence. Another great statement from the Upanisads asserts, Sarvam khalvidam Brahman, All this, indeed, is Brahman. All this (idam), meaning that all we see with our mind and senses is Brahman, but we are not recognizing it as Brahman. And this is maya, ignorance, the cause of all suffering."

All we see with our mind and senses is Brahman, but we are not recognizing it as Brahman. And this is maya, ignorance, the cause of all suffering. Brahman is Objective truth/reality and our true inner objective self.
5: lacking in reality or substance : ILLUSORY
1a: expressing or dealing with facts or conditions as perceived without distortion by personal feelings, prejudices, or interpretations.
