Expected Freedom

expected_freedom

One of our deepest and most subtle desires in life is to be free. We want to be free from the pressures, responsibilities and commitments that burden us and can continue to increase through life.

However freedom is not necessarily a physical state of being. It is not that if I have wealth, education or position I will be free. The basis of our freedom or bondage is a much more subtle energy than that: it is based on our expectations.

We are the ones that free or bind ourselves to people, places, things and even situations. We bind ourselves with our expectations of how we want people to behave, and things and outcomes to be. We continue to feed expectations with our thoughts, words and actions and in doing so we tie ourselves and our happiness to expected results.

Expectations become the chains that bind us and tie us down. The more the expectations the heavier the chains. They become the basis of our happiness and achievement and also of our loss.

Let go of expectations and become free.

 

Om Shanti
