All dichotomies disguise.
We're already part of the world, like caricatures drawn on paper are, actually, part of the paper.
I don't think there's any need for any particular mindset: "when chopping wood, chop wood; when eating rice, eat rice" (or whatever that exact saying is).
Regardless of whether we choose a mindset or not, we'll end up with a mindset!
It's just the way we're wired.
Some people have the mindset that spiders are scary, everything happens to them, or that freedom is a lottery ticket away. Many of those people have never heard of the concepts we discuss here. Still, they have a mindset.
The catch is whether or not it works in your life. If it works, who cares? If it creates dissonance, do something about it!
As an example, I used to have the mindset that the Law of Attraction was baloney. Instead of leaving it at that, I became abrasive towards people who believe in LOA. When you're mindset leads to that sort of behaviour, you can be pretty sure you've got the scarcity/victim mindset going on.
Moving into an abundant/empowered mindset means that I can talk about it, I can join in on the fun, log off, and not have to practice it myself.
