Fantasising is like dreaming while you are awake. It is independent of the cold, harsh world of reality. Fantasising is woven into our genetic infrastructures. A child’s mind is alive with fantasy. A boy thoroughly believes his toy train is real, journeying through signals, tunnels, and in and out of railway stations. A girl pushes her pram because her baby doll needs to go for a walk. Children need not question anything because they do not have the billion and one conflicting ideas that grown-ups wrestle. It would be nigh impossible for the man in the street to return home and play with a plastic soldiers and seriously believe war games to be real. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RU9Dw5j0doI
Fantasy carves out the destiny of many people. Children fantasise about being a footballer, nurse, pop star or whatever. Their eventual spouse might be someone they fantasised about kissing for years. Men and women’s fanciful ideas and ambitions fall by the wayside as they gradually become bogged down in the earthly quagmire. Most adults have no time to fantasise, or if they do, no time to put fantasies into practice. The world, it seems, is moving too fast for desired destinies to fall into place. Meditation and visualisation apply the brakes to life and give adults time to jump back to the world of fantasy and spiritual existence. If you can fantasise, then you can experience yourself healthy, youthful, and spiritually content. Go and pluck the poppy that represents fantasy and return to the field of adulthood. Plant the poppy firmly in your life, do the visualisations and become well, youthful, and content!
