Did you watch TV last night?
Maybe you watched Dancing with the Stars, or some other reality TV show.
Do you realize that you were captured by fantasy?
Why not go dancing?
Fantasy is ruining our lives. Fantasy is the backdrop of pornography, television, movies, government, Facebook, Twitter and even most businesses. Fantasy is a reality that you wish you had, but isn’t really true. Fantasy is the empty promise of having a better life without substance.
Fantasy is one of our biggest problems. Instead of wasting countless hours fantasizing try working on being present where you are. Fantasy is distraction; distraction keeps you from Freedom, which equals real life.
Are dreams fantasizing?
No, because dreams are yours; you have ownership of them. They only become fantasy when you refuse to pursue them. Fantasy anesthetizes our pain: it numbs us, keeps us in check and gets us through the day. Fantasy is a way of controlling us.
The problem with fantasy is it ends too quickly, and you never feel fulfilled. It leaves you longing for more, while delivering nothing. It is like being addicted to drugs, constantly robbing you of real life.
Choose to be present.
