How expectation limits us

I hold no cherished outcome…

The human condition is a constant movement from one desire to the next. We plan our day, keep to our schedules, meet our goals and then immediately set our sights upon something new, often seeing the present moment as nothing more than a means to an end.

When we become attached to a particular outcome, we block the flow of infinite possibility. Somewhere down the line, the ego fixates upon a particular person, dollar amount, goal or perceived solution to a problem and decides that anything else will simply not be good enough. Attachment is limiting.

The more you can expand your ability to receive life with an open heart, the greater the amount of joy you will experience. Do set your goals, but leave room for the unexpected. Set the wheels of manifestation in motion with the knowledge that unseen possibilities may aid you along the way. The key to living an awakened life is the very healthy knowledge that our vision is all too often limited by what we see and experience on the physical plane… and there is much more to life than meets the eye.

I am not subject to disappointment…

The amount of disappointment we experience when things don’t go as planned shows us our degree of attachment to a specific outcome. From the level of a soul-crushing letdown to a light irritation and everything in between, disappointment acts as a teacher showing us that we’ve temporarily lost faith in the process of our awakening.

Show up. Be joyful. Utilize the tools at hand. See opportunities to grow and meet life with acceptance. It’s okay to step into the unknown while still walking forward in the direction of your dreams.

Today my intention is to be willing to accept a miracle.
