Beneficial Unrealism

To Master Expectations, we do need to develop the ability to be able to absolutely, with complete 100% conviction, Expect the improbable and unlikely. Perhaps we know from experience when by chance, we had such Expectations, and they were met, it is something that *Can* happen.

Besides Unrelenting Positivity, we sometimes need a fairly large dose of Unrealistic Positivity, to counter Perceptions of negativity and negative pattern, we have become aware of. We have to Insist on going against both the Expectations outside of us, and against those internal Expectations which are not Positive, but which are based on reasonable probability.

When it comes to Expectation, the rules of probability do not apply, unless we expect them to. The Art of Expectation, and its mastery is thus about learning to expect at will, to expect against the pattern, to expect counter to probability. None of these apply when it comes to Positive Expectation. Breaking free from those internal Expectations of ourselves, like the Expectation to be reasonable and logical, in all circumstances, is one such Internal Expectation that has to go.

To Master Expectations, we do need to develop the ability to be able to absolutely, with complete 100% conviction, Expect the improbable and unlikely. Perhaps we know from experience when by chance, we had such Expectations, and they were met, it is something that *Can* happen.

The Art of Expectation is to be able to go against the Expectations of the world. It is the Art of Freedom and True Individuality. It is the Art of Independence.

Just asking the World, the air, the nothing, just Asking Intent, for say, a Raise, is an example of Applying this in a very definite way. Raises can come in many ways, monetarily, spiritually, emotionally, via opportunity, etc. Asking in this way is throwing an Intent out there. If we do this sincerely, earnestly, And, and this is most important, if we actually Express this Intent externally, it is most powerful. More powerful than most realize.

Because of course, it is then an Act of Personal Commitment. This leverages our psychology. There doesn’t have to be any metaphysical component, although there might be. As strategists, we don’t discount any opportunity, no matter how low the probability.

And as Strategists, we use every means at our disposal to Leverage Ourselves. This is one such method, a most potent and powerful one. Particularly if we have the Energy of Desperation as a Motivator.

Syl Sabastian

"I admit to being an unusual person." - SS

From a comment on his profile pic, since writing one's own bio is so difficult:

“Beautiful and astounding. Kind of resembles an amazing character I know. Some call him the Weaver of the Unraveled, the Rekindler of Doused Fires, the Sandman of Endless Beaches, the Friend to the Friendless, the Harmonizer of Unsung Heros. And some even call him Syl.” - Na'Cher

From age 10, on the day he literally exploded a light-bulb, Syl Sabastian’s acute life-long love affair with Understanding began. Since then his focus on, and love of Awareness, or more accurately his struggle with non-awareness, has never let-up.

An intense reader in his youth, Syl absorbed over a book a day, including the classics read in chronological order, culminating in extensive science-fiction/fantasy/speculative reading. After transitioning to Applying and Living his philosophies, Appropriately, with Attunement the ever-present motivation and catalyst, it all morphed in time to an earnest propensity to write and communicate.

Syl and His Heart have owned restaurants, stores, online businesses, and travelled the world, while implementing and enjoying their life-perspectives of which he writes so deeply. As Biella is so fond of saying, "and there's More..."

"My life began, from earliest memory, with a peculiar precocious understanding of abstract concepts, a mystery which remains unexplained to any satisfaction. I feel I am traversing a circle back to my origin, except perhaps, now more aware of what I already knew." -  From: The Young Man's Story

Syl is a great interview and an even better friend.

A Philosopher-Writer focusing on the Application of a comprehensive Practical-Personal-Philosophy. Creator of: The Philosophy of Appropriateness and: An A+ Philosophy. Writings range considerably, from extensive psychological perspectives to fiction. All connecting in one way or another to a unique vision. A consistent coherency permeates Syl Sabastian's extensive variety.

“Syl Sabastian is a Contemporary Philosopher and Writer, who exercises a glorious intellectual mind that is most admirable for its profundity and sharpness. Often offering multiple sides of an argument, he provokes self-introspection. His aim is to uncover Appropriateness, Awareness, Attention, Application, Attunement, and more, with a unique, high-level understanding of the profound intricacies that interlace these concepts.” - TJT & PDJ, Owners of the Gateway Gazette, Entrepreneurs, Writers, Moms.

"My blog is my best bio." -SS  :) <3

“You fascinate me, you really do. I think of myself as a big deep thinker... your writing, at least what I think I understand it to be about, sounds like the basis for either a belief-system or a wonderful self-help process. Am I anywhere near the mark? I think your writing, even about yourself, is amazing by the way. Quite poetic.” - Andrew Reeves, Author, Screenwriter, Poet, Creator of The Empty World, The Voodoo Doll, Claire, The Dictionary of Stupid, and more.

  1. When times of negativity comes to our mind, it is not bad to think of positive things that will make you feel better. It is more okay than to drown yourself to negative things that will make you more problematic.
