Do we have a right to be disappointed?
Being disappointed suggests expectations.
An ‘I’ will always feel disappointed,
precisely because it wants something a certain way.
But it doesn’t have to give itself up totally:
we need a mere I to function in this world.
To be told we have to ‘totally’ let go
is only relevant in the moment of enlightenment.
We are not vegetables!
So we can have
a little disappointment
a little frustration
a little fear
a little anger
a little desire
a littler pride
a little jealousy
and of course, we are stuck with a little ignorance.
There will come a time when we become content
with our disappointments.
In this realisation, there is sadness in joy.
