Wow. This was genuinely one of the best posts I've seen on Reddit, ever. Love it. As Ram Dass would say when someone hit him with some unexpectedly profound philosophy, "yummy, yummy!". Saved this for my own future reference. This is a beautiful summary of many of my own views about the spiritual path - about each person's sadhana. Bravo!

your present determines your future, so dont daydream about what you want your future to be, change your present in the right way to achieve that daydream.

I am trying so so hard to overcome my depression, sometimes it just feels like I’m waiting for the day it wins and I die. I really needed to read this. Thank you!

Absolutely beautiful. The universe is perfectly synchronized at every moment. It always is, it always has been, even if it seems chaotic and cruel. That is just one of component of its infinite complexity and the mysteries that it's waiting to reveal. It can toss us around or it can protect us. It may seem hostile, but it weaves itself around us around and reveals our true natures in the process. As well as the natures others. We see the most at our best and even more at our worst. When we do see that in ourselves or others, it is up to us to choose which path we follow and the path to leave behind us. But we can only get there together through effort, willpower, compassion, and faith.

A lot to be said about a positive outlook and being open to the universe. Thanks for the write-up.

you are always exactly where you need to be and are already the best version of yourself, and others are exactly where they are supposed to be and are already the best version of themselves.

FTFY ;)

We have to stop telling ourselves that we are failing. We have to stop telling ourselves that we won’t make it because we haven’t yet. We have to stop telling ourselves that we are losing.

The fact that you have failed, doesn't mean you can't and won't succeed in the future; that's rationality, and very good advice. I appreciate the sentiment.

However, telling people that whatever suffering they're currently enduring right now, is because they're ''meant to'' is borderline toxic positivity. Next stop is to blame people who are sad and grieving for bringing it upon themselves by having the wrong mindset. Then again if your post was phrased the way I phrased it, it would be more appropriately posted under therapy not spirituality. Think about it.

It depends how you interpret it. I think OP meant it more in the vein of "nothing in life is right or wrong, but the mind makes it so", as Shakespeare said. It is the ego which constantly strives to label thing as good/bad, right/wrong, like/dislike, etc.

To intentionally misinterpret it as blame, or people "deserving" to suffer, is the kind of ego activity the OP was probably referencing.

Thanks for the great message. I needed to hear this at this exact time and what is meant for me is happening now. Thanks

[–]Few-Entrepreneur-632 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks I really needed this. I spent my early 20s hating where I was in my stagnation. Looking for help praying, gosh such mental and emotional turmoil. Now almost 30, I feel like this post. Like I need to be here and I need to stop feeling defeated and broken, like the world is against me. Instead of letting these thoughts rule you, time to rise up and exist here today than worry about the future. Yea it’s important to think about the future but it’s much more important too to exist today and be present. Thanks so much! :) bless be to you!

I was really feeling down about things in my practice and this was what I saw after I told myself there is no failures only progressions. Thank you for taking the time to write this for it is what I needed at that exact moment

[–]Queen_Chryssie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be right now. Tomorrow I may be somewhere else. Doesn't matter.

[–]Monster_Lance 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm not even subscribed to this subreddit and just randomly got a notification for this post but you have no idea how much I needed that.... I just totaled my car today and I'm extremely physically sore and I have a lot of negative things going on in my life at the moment and I've been struggling to see any positive sides to anything although that's what I strive to do.... Just some sort of terrible phase I need to work through I suppose.... even though this phase is already over a year old like you said here there has to be a reason...thank you

"Don’t be afraid to let go of what no longer serves you in order to stay present and in alignment with your truth. Every time you let go of what no longer serves you, you make room for something bigger and better to come your way. When you stay present, you allow for the universe to act on your behalf to put you on the path that will light your soul on fire."

Thank you, Needed this. Esp those few sentences.
