It is a fine line of balance to create your reality and remain detached. You are a being of creativity, thus all that you do, even in the silence of your meditation is a seeking, a creating. You seek that core of peace, the peace that passes all understanding. It is exciting and palpable. You seek it as you meditate, you seek it as you relate with others through intimacy, business and family. You seek it as you create art, create a wardrobe, create a living space, create a charity, create a goal – all the while creating a new you, living in a new world that has changed from the new vibration of you. You create Life. How then, with all that creation, do you Expect Nothing? It seems so opposite.
Nothing is not just nothing. In this inclusive universal experience, it is a potential of All, yet unformed. It is the equivalent of everything, as one end of the perspective is everything, it’s opposite nothing. The no mind of Buddha led to the inclusive mind of All. It is the integration of All through the opening, allowing and receiving of the yet unknown – potential. As you open to potential rather than limiting your experience to the control of expectation, you open to a flow of potential not previously available in the restricted flow of control. Your creative work is the constant balance of flow such that limitation becomes a freedom and each new experience of freedom leads to new parameters of limitation that serves growth. From one perspective your planet is limited by the locked orbit to the sun, yet those parameters provide the environmental structure that supports life within a certain framework. Within that framework, life changes and the cycle continues, spiraling to a new experience again and again. Expecting Nothing is the challenge of looking past the limitations and seeing the freedom as you push past a structure that was, into a form that is becoming that which it is.
The paradox of Expecting Nothing is that the potential of everything is within it. You are merely opening to that full potential. As you expect joy, excitement, love, peace, creativity; you may experience the opposite, but in the opening to allow the flow of opposites, you incorporate All into you. To experience the opposite of joy and Expect Nothing, you release your grip on the opposite emotion and flow through the experience stronger, wiser and more able to experience that which you seek. Your perspective is now broader, deeper and more Wholistic. Your compassion is now more resilient. Your fear is dissolved. Your experience has broadened your Being. You, like the universe, have become inclusive in nature. Seeking Life and more Life through its many facets of potential.
