“The mind gets bogged down by its expectations. It decides when or where something is to happen and then becomes frustrated if things do not work out. Yet all of life is guesswork. The mind extrapolates from past experience and assumes that future events will conform to that pattern. But life often presents us with different circumstances. When something unexpected happens, do not punish yourself. It is impossible to guess right all the time. The animals in the forest do not worry about what will happen; they just live life. Once you accept things as they come and stop putting pressure on yourself, your life will grow calm. In that calm your power will grow.”
Stuart Wilde, in “Affirmations”
