A visit from the netherworld of the Force

Master Yoda returns in epic fashion in The Last Jedi, appearing to young Skywalker. As wise as ever, Yoda is always one step ahead of Luke. He sees Luke looking off to the horizon, not in the hear and now, much like a young Luke did in the Original Trilogy.

Yoda has also shifted his philosophy, learning that the old way of doing things has failed the new generation of Jedi. The reason he destroys the trees and the ancient Jedi texts (or so we thought) was for Luke’s benefit. Luke needs to let go of the past, let it die.

Yoda even informs Luke:

"Wisdom they held, but that library contained nothing that the girl Rey does not already possess"

Come to find out, this statement by Yoda had a double meaning. Rey scavenged the Jedi texts and took them with her on her departure from Ahch-To. Yoda knew the books were already gone. He is also referencing the Force within her and that Luke can teach her all she needs to know — if he embraces his failure.

"Wisdom. Greatest teacher failure is."

Now, this is a turning point in The Last Jedi, where Luke listens to the advice of Yoda, reclaiming the Jedi Master mantle, becoming not only what Rey needs, but what the galaxy does.
