A couple of healthy thoughts for a dualistic mind to choke on:

1. Hope is a mind-killer (hope distracts us from the present; hope makes us wait for some future  moment of reality but life is now, always now).

2. An ideal world is a world without idealism (idealism distracts us from the present; ideals make us wait for some future ideal moment of reality but life is now, always now, exactly as it currently, actually is).

3. All that can be (right now), is.  Reality doesn’t shortchange.  There is no celestial layaway in which the Universe withholds better versions of itself to manifest at a later point in time.  All that currently can be, currently is.

These are hard thoughts to swallow for a dualistic mind but let me sweeten this nondual poison with a soundtrack from Sweatshop Union: The Thing About It

Enjoy the ordinary perfection of what currently is!
