great expectations

As you think so shall you be! Since you cannot physically experience another person, you can only experience them in your mind. Conclusion: All of the other people in your life are simply thoughts in your mind. Not physical beings to you, but thoughts. Your relationships are all in how you think about the other people of your life. Your experience of all those people is only in your mind. Your feelings about your lovers come from your thoughts. For example, they may in fact behave in ways that you find offensive. However, your relationship to them when they behave offensively is not determined by their behaviour, it is determined only by how you choose to relate to that behaviour. Their actions are theirs, you cannot own them, you cannot be them, you can only process them in your mind.
Wayne Dyer
Interesting isn’t it I always wonder when the spiritual kinds claim that they have no expectations. Particularly in the constrains of a marriage, then what does it mean?
If a marriage means sharing, then you expect the other person to listen to you, you expect the other person to talk.
A spouse is supposed to be a companion through thick and thin, sick and sin. Wait a minute the wife in the relationship is not supposed to express her wishes, or not entertain or develop her friends. What are we talking about.
Lets come come back to expectation, someone really is in a no expectation state then isn’t the whole marriage a social farce?
