Unattended, our expectations and ways of acting become more and more rigid as we grow older. And this is one of the reasons why meditation practice is probably a good thing to do, because regular practice of meditation changes our relationship with that solidification process. We keep letting go of our ideas about how things should be and what we want--that's what we actually do while we're meditating. And this allows us more flexibility and openness in our lives.
