Weekly Intention: Eager


Be eager and excited, today! 


Notes/Thoughts

“To expect the unexpected shows a thoroughly modern intellect.”
– Oscar Wilde

This week’s question is “How… can you expect the unexpected, today?”

So, let’s start by defining, ‘expect the unexpected…’

expect
/ikˈspekt/
verb

1. Anticipate, believe, look forward to (the)…

unexpected
/ˌənəkˈspektəd/
adjective

1. Surprising and unknown!

The Surprising and unknown is often interpreted as “good” or “bad.” If you think something is “good,” for instance, celebrate it! If you think something is “bad,” ask yourself, “What good can come from it?”

Ask yourself, “How can I expect the unexpected, today?”
Then live from the question and see what unfolds…


Weekly Notes

“Expecting the unexpected” is also related to being positive, strong and discerning when something “bad” happens; i.e reminding yourself, “the glass is already broken.” Ultimately, it’s about being grateful, right now for the good things, the good times and the good feelings, because sh*t is inevitable. 
Sh*t always happens, eventually. 

Other Notes

If something “angers” you, it surprises you, in the moment and if something “annoys” you, it surprises you, in the moment; and both are unexpected.  And because both are unexpected, they are perfect for this exercise.

The Exercise: Create a List of Things that Annoy You:

Things that Anger and Annoy (You):

  • He/She is condescending.
  • He/She is insulting.
  • He/She is judgmental.
  • He/She is fake.
  • He/She is conditional.
  • He/She is opinionated.
  • He/She is disappointed ~ in me.
  • He/She has acute anxiety.
  • He/She doesn’t like my choices.
  • He/She doesn’t approve of my life.
  • He/She wants me to change.
  • He/She cares more about other people’s perceptions…

There is a “feeling” that is attached to these things on the list, for instance a feeling of “anger or annoyance.” And because you have a “feeling,” these things on the list are considered “unexpected.” 

If you create a list, and something “unexpected” happens, which is on the list, then you can simply say,“I expected it.”


People think and act in a particular way, for a particular reason, usually unbeknownst to you. Therefore, it is important for you ~ to be true to yourself, irregardless of people’s opinions, beliefs, attitudes or behaviors.

“The idea for The Yoga Book came to me in a yoga class! I saw it clearly in my mind and I needed somewhere to write it down. Also, I had recently met with an Indian medical doctor, who had said “Different styles of yoga effect people differently, so it is important to know which ‘style of yoga’ is right for you.” So, I decided to create a book, where people could journal about their experiences in a yoga class, write about the different postures – how they felt, get inspired, and write about their insights… Sometimes I would come to class with a problem, any problem, and leave with a solution! And when I did, I’d write it down somewhere, so I decided to create The Yoga Book.”
