“… leave the outcome entirely up to God…” — You Can’t Make Me Angry
The Buddah said that attachment is the root of suffering. I like to interpret this as also applying to my attachment to outcomes, aka expectations. I can measure my attachment by simply asking myself in advance “If this turns out not to go the way I want, will I be okay?”. If my answer is “absolutely”, I have truly given the result to God and trust that even an un-hoped-for outcome will somehow create more joy in my life, however hard it may be to see it at the time.
When I live in this light, present with and trusting my HP, I’m at peace and in serenity, however things turnout. Which means, no matter what, ILML!
