Illusory Advice: Expectation and disappointment

"Silent sitting gradually allows you to let go of living your life through expectation and disappointment. While expectation exists, you continually wish your life to pan out in a particular form and become frustrated and unhappy when life has its own ideas and circumstances create a different form. Meditation enables these patterns of projection and wilful obduracy to reveal themselves – your patterning becomes transparent. Then you can let go of this patterning and learn to be comfortable in the present moment. Once you are able to live in the moment, the form of your life in that moment becomes available to you simply as the experience of as it is. As it is will always be perfect because it is as it is"
