‘I am open to the guidance of synchronicity, and do not let expectations hinder my path.’ ~Dalai Lama
"… What’s a life without expectations like? It means you accept reality as it is, and people as they are, without expectations, without trying to force people into the containers you have for them, seeing things as they are. It’s a life where you don’t need to be disappointed or frustrated or angry — or if you are, you accept it, and then let it go. …
… Let the waters of the world cleanse us, and let us walk lightly in a world that is already wonderful without our fantasies. …"
