About

…when expectation ends

The well known quote below brings up a number of questions. For example:

Must “peace” mean “quiet”?

Can “inner peace” somehow co-exist along with changing everyday states such as anxiety, doubt, excitement or relaxation?

Is it possible to be engaged in energetic, noisy or strenuous activity, yet be in a state of inner peace?

How does one become free of expectations whilst still striving for a result?

This piece is a free-form exploration of these questions, as repeating musical material resolves in a number of different ways.

“Peace begins when expectations end” - Sri Chimnoy
