“No fantasies, sexual or otherwise, are true. Fantasies become totally unnecessary as the wholly satisfying nature of reality becomes apparent.” (ACIM, COA ed., T-1.48.9:1-2)
As we progress, we feel better almost constantly. This is the “wholly satisfying nature of reality.” In the frame of mind that we develop, we have no need to escape into fantasies.
Fantasies have no basis in fact, and indulging in them catches us up in a false reality, an even greater illusion than we normally experience.
It is hard to imagine a more illusory state of mind than we normally inhabit in this world, for we are lost in illusions, far removed from God’s true reality. Only when we have progressed farther will we know the truth of this. And fantasies delay our progress. No one can fantasize often and expect to join God’s Kingdom, the real world, the House of Truth (the last, as called in A Course of Love).
What do we need to experience the wholly satisfying nature of reality? We need to open ourselves to the experience of God, something that comes very easy as we do so more and more often. Let Him speak to us, let Him remind us of Scripture that will ease our minds and hearts.
His way works. Our own does not, especially when that own is a fantasized projection from a deluded mind.
