- What is it you are expecting in life? From others? From yourself? Where does expectation try to look in time? Is that something it can see? Do your expectations sometimes let you down? Were you only misinterpreting reality when you formed unrealistic expectations? Can you find yourself expecting that which in truth you cannot know, have or control? Can you hold expectations and then react in anger or fear when they are not met? When you do, are you blaming? What are you reacting to in this case? Others? Or your perception of others? Who constructs your perception of others? This could also be a message. Expect something to show itself in your life.
