You can live within the illusion but hover above it and make choices to not participate in it at the same time. We were infinite pure beings with free will. Some ways to detach from illusion is to turn off the tv and go for a walk on the beach. Stop wasting your consciousness and emotions paying attention to energy sucking entertainment. Have you heard of Plato’s allegory of the cave?
Love yourself, take care of your body, eat healthy, think clearly, breathe deeply.
