Managing Expectations

Expectationa strong belief that something will happen or be achieved.

In everyday life, we believe we can achieve a goal, but this has limitations. We narrow experience down to our limited view of life, and are always trying to anticipate and make everything familiar for safety.

Expectation is an assumption, a fixation that makes life mechanical. There are mechanics to life, but there are variables that are unknown until they actually happen – and life becomes alive.  Constantly adapting and never fixed; this is how we improve understanding.

Peace begins when expectations end.

When we find peace or equanimity, we find space to see everything afresh. We can manage expectations through meditation, realising that the author of our life is only a copyist.

Meditation keeps us balanced and less excitable.
Pure consciousness begins when expectations end.
