Unrealistic expectation, what is that?
Is even that combination of words, together as a meaningful concept, valid, real, of itself? For can much with complete confidence, be expected in life? Why not just know that whatever is created in the present, must be good enough? Not only that, good enough, but really, if fully appreciated, a very fine manifestation of the mystery. That is, the wonderful multiplicity of possibility of your amazing lives, yes, lives! What choice! So really, unrealistic expectation, any expectation, if it has any place it is surely limited, according to the necessity of limitations to our perceptions. But even this, you may and probably should challenge, with your every passion!
