We spend just as much time in our wishes and phantasies as in reality.
Being mindful to the present is great. But accepting that we do spend a lot of time day-dreaming and wishing for things gives us the space to allow these dreams. And if we are not happy with this element of our mental climate we can take the steps to make more rewarding phantasies. No instant delusion here, don’t worry. Just the acceptance, that this is what your mind does anyway, so it might as well be nice.
