Expectations render you miserable

All the problems start as soon as our expectations take a rise. Between the two banks of life and death, flows the river of love which is not a question of length rather depth.

Freedom is the very essential core of human consciousness; love is its circumference and freedom is its center. These two fulfilled, life has no regret. Love is a basic need, as basic as freedom; so both have to be fulfilled. And, a man who is full of Love & Free is the most beautiful phenomenon in the wold.”-Osho

Don’t move ahead of yourself into the future. Let it remain unknown, that is its beauty, grandeur, glory. If it becomes known, it will be useless because the whole excitement is lost.

Don’t expect anything in future. Don’t corrupt it, because then all your expectations if fulfilled will make you miserable. You will not be happy about it  because happiness is possible only when something happens which you had never expected, when something takes you completely unaware.

You come home and expect your wife to say something and she does. Just think  you will be constantly in boredom. Nothing new will happen, everything will just be a repetition.

If expectations are fulfilled you will feel bored and if they are not you will feel as if a conspiracy is going on against you.

If you understand me well drop all fears and love more and love unconditionally – and don’t think that you are doing something for the other when you love, you are doing something for yourself. When you love it is beneficial to you. So don’t wait; don’t say that when others love, you will love – that is not the point at all.

Once you drop your ego, your expectations, you have learned how to live to the fullest. Frustation is a shadow of expectations; with expectations dropped, frustation drops on its own accord. Complaints disappear, grumbling disappears and you feel accepted.
