We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

-Iris Murdoch


You could be caught up in a world of fantasy or illusion. You could be spending too much of your time on wishful thinking, daydreaming, or illusions. Having dreams is fine, but if you aren't living in and dealing with reality, your dreams will never transition to the real world and you may find your reality becoming harsher over time as you neglect its presence. Be careful of having your head in the clouds and giving in to temptations that would damage your real life.


You are spending your time pursuing escape rather than dealing with self-reflection and reality. You are living in your fantasies to the point where you are unwilling to deal with the realities of day-to-day life. In chasing illusion, you are refusing self-examination and are avoiding things that would make you truly happy rather than simply distracted.
