In contrast with the past, nowadays we are mostly living as kings and queens: Even my queen, living on the other end of the world, thinks herself very fortunate to have a roof over her head, food one the table, and a connection to her king at all times.
And of course, even the relative luxury of enjoying activities that are more than just everyday life are also what makes her happy. Am I feeding one of my addictions, or feeding her addiction to a dream life? Who cares? we both want this, and both work at manifesting a future for ourselves, and our world.
