How Attached are You to Your Expectations?

“Be open to the guidance of synchronicity, and do not let expectations hinder your path.”

This understanding we have of the metaphysical is leading us down a path of balance, on one hand the striving to achieve our goals and on the other letting go of all attachment to the outcome. This is reflective of the paradox of life. Did you ever see the movie, “Under the Tuscan Sun?” The female lead is newly divorced and offered a ticket to fly to Italy where she falls in love with Tuscany – who wouldn’t! She buys a dilapidated house and tells the estate agent that she wants a family sitting around the table including young children. I won’t go on about the story suffice to say at the end the agent says to her that she has got what she wanted.

I’m sure when you heard me say she wanted a family, you imagined how she wanted that to look. But that is not what the universe delivered. She realised that she had in fact got what she wanted, but how that looked, was not how she had imagined it to be. She had followed her heart and enjoyed the experiences that came along. The outcome was guided by the synchronicities of the universe and we left the theatre knowing she was happy with what had happened.

Enjoy being guided along your path!
