Expectation is the culprit. Let go! ...........

Taken from ET:

Expectation is the culprit. Let go!


YOUcan live either in expectation or in gratitude, never in both. With expectation there is a desire to possess things. You become the owner. With gratitude, you become the enjoyer. When you are the owner you enjoy only the few things that you own. When you are the enjoyer, you enjoy everything in Existence. When you look to own, nothing will seem enough. When you enjoy, everything seems to be overflowing! That is the difference. When we believe that what we need is always only outside of us, we will only continue searching! When we believe that Existence always gives us what we need, we will find everything within us. Working with expectation is like pouring clarified butter into fire to quench it. Can you quench fire by pouring clarified butter into it? Never! In the same way, you can never feel fulfilled if your actions are rooted in expectation.
Try to sit down and make two lists:
one of all the things that you have and one of all the things that you don’t have. The first list should include every single thing that you have, starting from your eyes, ears, hands and legs, because there are people who don’t have some of these. Include all your physical and mental faculties before moving to material things. If you write very sincerely without leaving out anything, you will not be able to complete the first list! That is the truth. If you find you are unable to finish the first list, it means gratitude has started happening in you! The problem is that there is a continuous expectation in us all the time. That is why gratitude doesn’t happen easily. We continuously receive input from our eyes, nose, ears, tongue and touch. Based on this, we continuously expect something or other to happen in a certain way. When we see someone who has a better house/ car, it registers in us. When we hear of some great achievement by someone, it registers in us. Our energy moves only outward, constantly following our five senses, never inwards towards self. Gratitude is when this process reverses and you suddenly awaken to the abundance in you! With gratitude there is no expectation or greed. When you start experiencing deep gratitude, your responses to situations change. You start resonating with Existence. Your body will flow with that resonance, with a cool grace and softness. All your actions will arise out of this grace. There will be no violence, only joy will be flowing. Then anything you do will only make life sweeter. Be Blissful!


  1. a typical psycological article...hmmmm.....hmmmmmmmmmmm.....

    but.. there is one more thing that is "If somebody has all the capabilities and all facilities all that money and all things, even then if he is not able to enjoy the things that he has.... even he want to enjoy he cant .... Why So? I am pointing out towards the responsibility part has one has in his/her life... we have to pay that.. we have to sacrifice materialistic pleasures for the things which can only be felt by heart...."

    You have pasted this superb article but im adding the spice of RESPONSIBILITY to it.... thats my only concern :-)


  2. Dear Rajeev,
    A great article which elevates the heart. This condition (gratefulness) of heart and mind is very essential to develop patience and contentment while searching for multi-baggers. This routes out both greed and fear from our system and makes us ideally suited for making right decisions in stock Investments.


  3. Hi, Rajeev,
    once again a beautiful insightful & philosophical ( and Priya, its not psychological)article from Paramhansa Nithynand.One needs to find himself to find the ultimate truth or GOD. And the best way to find is to do the Vipassana. Its my personal experience. In Vipassana, there is no GOD or some GURU to worship. Its you yourself. The basic of Vipassana lies in experimenting on yourself to find the true yourself. And believe me its very difficult to do. All other meditation courses are just kis zaad ki patti! But true and so difficult is Vipassana. But mind you its for the only people who want to know inner-self.

    OK OK. Now coming back. I must say thanks Rajeev for recommending Infotrek Syscom. Its in continuous UC since 5 trading days. From 19 to 33 today. Your pick KPIT Cummins is also doing good.As per your suggestion only i dared to buy significant quantity of it.Navin Fluorine is also looking cool. MANY THANKS RAJEEV.

  4. Great Thoughts
    I read it eight times & still want want to read it. This is essence of life
