Transcending Human Limitations
We know now that we can manifest all of our spiritual goals, our personal goals and our dreams, if we release attachments; particularly our attachment to time. Time makes us feel we are behind or somehow not doing enough. It is only when we measure our spiritual development against time that we grow impatient and disillusioned. Attachment can be defined as an inordinate need to have something occur in a specific way, at a specific time, in a specific sequence, etc. and/or an inability to let go of that which no longer serves.
We may become attached to unhealthy habits, rigid mind-sets, negative thinking and so on. Expectation is closely aligned with attachment. When we “expect” that things will go a certain way, we become “attached” to that knowing. Then, we may be completely blind to new opportunities or ways that something can come about. Your words and thoughts have a frequency and are heard and felt every thought, every word creates a ripple. Each time you reinforce a trait or way of thinking that you no longer wish to keep in your life, by speaking it out in the present tense “I tend to expect too little” etc., you make it more difficult for your own mind to know that you want that aspect of behaviour to change. Every time you remind myself that you don’t have to keep doing what you’ve always done, speak in the past tense, like saying “In the past, I have tended to,” I make it easier for my mind to imagine that I am already moving away from that aspect of behaviour.”
One of the most insidious forms of expectation is self-expectation. For example, you may expect yourself to deal with challenging situations better than you end up being able to deal with them. Then, there may be a feeling of falling short of your own expectations. If there has been a repeated pattern of behaviour from someone in the past or you have reacted in the same way toward someone over time, you might unconsciously expect the pattern to continue into the future. Sometimes, you expect people to understand something you’re feeling or going through. Sometimes, they don’t understand and then, you may feel hurt. So, how do we break the cycle of attachment and expectation? SURRENDER.
Release this matter to source for the highest level of transmutation and manifestation.
“I give this matter over to you, I release. I surrender.”
As many times as it takes, over and over if need be; keep releasing the matters over which you are attempting to exercise any kind of rigid control.
