In cultivating the container for our practice and our lives, we focus on creating conditions, setting intentions and minding our attention. None of these are focused on the outcome of what arises, but rather on cultivating conditions for things we wish to arise. Like creating a quiet space for meditation so the settling of the mind can arise. This is much different than expectation, and when we understand this, our life unfolds much more harmoniously, resulting in greater fulfillment
