The difference between imagination and fantasy

The difference between imagination and fantasy
Hi, dear friends and followers. Due to some difficulties this morning, I would like to introduce to you something to ponder on. Thank you very much for visiting and reading my blog.

Imagination draws its energy from a confrontation with desire. It feeds off desire, transmuting and magnifying reality through desire’s power.


Fantasy does the opposite; it avoids desire by fleeing into a crude sort of wish-fulfillment that seems much safer.

Fantasy might be teddy bears, lollipops, sexual delights, or superhero adventures; it also might be voices in one’s head urging acts of outrage and mayhem. Or it might be the confused world of separation and fear we routinely live in, a threatening yet seductive world that promises us the happiness we seek when our fantasies finally become real.

Imagination confronts desire directly, in all its discomfort and intensity, deepening the world right where we are. Fantasy and reality are opposing forces, but imagination and reality are not in opposition: Imagination goes toward reality, shapes and evokes it.


What if I were to say that Imagination is also a link between reality and fantasy. A connection between dreamland and the real world. Just think about it dear friends. When you are sitting in the cinema, watching a very tense, exciting and realistic movie, do you not feel like you are, not just part of the movie, but you are actually in the action living the part in the movie. Just something to ponder 

Thank you very much again, dear friends, for visiting my blog. Please share your thoughts with us, if you will. Have a great day.

  1. Thank you for finding and sharing this entry, Cindy. I never thought about the difference between imagination and fantasy before. It is not as subtle as I might have thought had I not read this article. Apparently I do much more with my imagination than I do with fantasy. I do not know if that is good or bad for my ability to fantasize. I do know that the way in which I deal with that which does not yet exist suits me well. I can imagine and I can dream, and I am ruled by neither.

  2. Fantasy and imagination, two concepts that are part of us, like dreams and boldest thoughts .... I think are two elements that should not be abandoned by humans. I liked this subject and the picture is beautiful Thanks for sharing Cindy ... !!! Kisses beautiful .. !!

  3. Thank you, Paula for sharing your thought on this topic. I know that some mix up the two although even if they separate entities, they are still very much connected.

  4. Muchas gracias por compartir sus pensamientos sobre este tema Maria Sí mucha gente mezclar los dos. Ellos son entidades separadas, pero todavía uno se conecta con la otra. Al igual que la teoría de enredo teoría. {:o)
