Can you imagine what it would be like to completely let go of all types of expectation?
When expectation comes in, you create a predefined set of parameters. You create a predefined image of what you hope to find. This has always been the case — and you have even been taught that this is power, that preparing yourself for things to come is intelligent.
Well, it is indeed intelligent, but it is NOT CONSCIOUS.
Consciousness cannot exist where predefinition has already set in. Consciousness doesn’t work that way; awareness doesn’t work that way.
Letting go of expectations is a way out of this. It is a way to cope with life’s needs; a way to cope with illusions that have been like a house around you that is now starting to crumble and fall apart.
When you let go, at first there might be fear, for what if the house collapses on top of you? What happens to all the stuff that you have been collecting, all the thoughts, all the parameters, all the belief systems that you have been collecting? They are like objects in your house that you love, like your DVD’s, your mobile phones, your television sets and your 20’000 dollar couch. These are your belief systems and they are pretty darn comfortable for the mind.
Expectations feed those belief systems into continuously existing in your reality. Letting go of those is the key to universal freedom.
There is only one expectation you should ever have and that is that energy tends to raise itself naturally.
So, in any situation you find yourselves in, use the principle of this Natural Energy Tendency and you will see that it will always carry you home. It will carry you into a state of consciousness and eventually into a state of awareness.
