I have heard of the same speech over and over again for the past year or so.. but it never clicked in my head until today.. Today, the dots have been connected.. and now I try my level best to have.....
Why no expectations.. well, for one, expectations creates illusions of a perfect picture.. and when you start to have a perfect picture in your head, you start to compare that image with reality.. I once said this before in someone's blog..
Comparison creates unhappiness
When you compare reality and it doesn't match the image that you had hoped for, you start to feel blue.. you start to feel unhappy because somehow you felt betrayed..
but if you think about it long enough, you'll probably see that the image or illusion was created by you.. you betrayed yourself and there is no reason to be angry..
The point is.. why be unhappy when you can choose to be otherwise.. if choose to have no expectations.. and choose to live by the moment.. then life becomes a journey, no longer a destination..
But having said that.. it's not easy to do.. life is a tough journey..
