The mind is a magician

The mind is a magician, it creates diseases, it creates medicines. The mind creates all sorts of illusions – beauty and ugliness, success and failure, wealth and poverty … The mind continues to create. And when the thought takes possession of you, then all your life energy functions in such a way that it can be realized, turned into reality. Every thought becomes an object, and every object in the beginning was only a thought and nothing else. You live in a state of some kind of hypnosis. The Buddha says that this hypnosis must be destroyed, and no other religion has made such an effort to destroy this hypnosis. A person needs to be hypnotized. A person must realize that all this is the mind: pain, pleasure, birth and death. Everything is mind. And when it becomes absolutely clear, the wizard disappears, and what remains is the truth. And this truth liberates.
