I don't understand what the following sentence means. Would you please paraphrase it:

You are more inclined to feel down to earth than somewhat removed.

    You generally feel connected to the world (reality) rather than disconnected from it.

    Generalizing further, I might say that you more like to feel like a participant in life rather than a spectator.

    'Down-to-earth' suggests realistic and practical, compared with a day-dreamer with their 'head in the clouds'. It's strange to say 'feel down-to-earth'. The other expression is 'to have both feet on the ground'.
