When they are not fulfilled — and they are never going to be fulfilled — frustration arises, failure arises, and you feel neglected, as if existence does not care for you.

Drop expectations for the future. Remain open, remain available to whatsoever happens, but don’t plan ahead….

“ If you are expecting, then again you will create suffering, because things are not going to happen according to YOU; things are going to happen according to the whole.

The wave, the small wave in the ocean, cannot be the deciding factor. The ocean decides; the wave has to be in a state of let-go.

If the wave wants to go to the east, then there is going to be trouble, then there is going to be pain. If the winds are not going to the east, if the ocean is not willing, then what is the wave going to do?

It will suffer. It will call it fate, it will call it circumstances, social conditions, the economic structure, the capitalist society, the bourgeois culture, the Freudian unconscious… and now you will call it growing pains.

But you are simply shifting the responsibility.

THE REAL THING IS THAT YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM YOUR EXPECTATIONS.

When they are not fulfilled — and they are never going to be fulfilled — frustration arises, failure arises, and you feel neglected, as if existence does not care for you.

Drop expectations for the future. Remain open, remain available to whatsoever happens, but don’t plan ahead.
Don’t make any psychological, fixed ideas about the future — that things should be like this — and much more suffering will disappear. “
OSHO
