The Trouble with Expectations

Expectations are conditions
On what is occurring here and now

Like logs of wood
Or piles of stone
Can dam a river’s flow
Your expectations
Can dam life’s flow
Keeping you from experiencing
The natural bounties
That flow with life’s flow

You, dear One
Are not apart from life

Life is not happening to you
Rather, life is happening for you
To awaken you to the open secret
That what you really are
Is the sacredness
That powers life’s flow
