Each of us is burdened by an unlimited number of
expectations (demands) that we hold for the actions of others.

have a strong opinion and point-of-view,
and are sure that we know how everything is supposed to be.

even away from the attentions of those
with whom they are most bonded.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The secret to a joyful life is Simplicity -

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Pity may represent little more
than the impersonal concern
which prompts the mailing of a check,

which demands the giving of one's soul.

who has the courage to treat me like a woman.

The Principal Causes of Our Suffering

People hardly ever make use of the freedom which they have,
for example, freedom of thought;

Expectation (demand) is always a cause of suffering.
Rather than "expecting" to be repaid
when we "loan" something to someone,
consider the "loans" we make to be forward payments
for the "loans" we received from
our ancestors, nurturers and others.
Request that any "loan" that we make be repaid FORWARD,
when the recipient is able,
and then completely forget about the "loan."
It is no longer our business if, when, or how
the "loan" is repaid - or is not repaid.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Life is NOT "Supposed to be Fair."
Know that there is no single way that life is "supposed" to be.
Demanding that life meet our expectations
is a sure fire recipe for a miserable existence.

Our only path to happiness lies in being open
to receiving whatever life throws at us -
with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

True friends are appreciative and never demanding.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.
More important, societal and religious traditions
tend to elevate the status of giver and lower the status of receiver.
When the Bible (Acts 20:32-35) speaks of it being
more blessed to give than to receive,
I believe that a better translation might be
"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Credulity - willingness to accept
unsupported statements without demanding proof -
is the greatest ally of the dictator and the demagogue.
