What if we just did that? What if we just expected it to be Peaceful and then acted as if it had happened? How would the world change?
This isn’t like wishing for a pony for Christmas, this is expecting that you will care for all ponies because ponies are needful.
This is an expectation of yourself that you will be Peace. In Advent, in the sacred season of coming into being… This is an unwillingness to expect any less, not only of yourself but of others and then loving yourself and your neighbors when we fail and encouraging us all to try again.
Expect Peace. The world needs you to ask the very best from it, to not settle from less. Part of expectation is going back again and again and again, and asking for more. Advent: Hope. Love. Joy. Peace. The hard work of Advent is expecting all of that. C’mon, I have great expectations of us.
