There is a famous Zen koan:

“Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment; chop wood, carry water.”

I’m sorry to tell you, my friend, but the mimosa by the poolside dream comes from the wealth porn we’ve been watching since the 80s with Robin Leach’s “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.”
