Liberation of the mind

Once you know your mind and its miraculous powers, and remove what poisoned it - the idea of a separate and isolated person - you just leave it alone to do its work among things for which it is well suited.

To keep the mind in its own place and on its own work is the liberation of the mind.

There is only one mistake you are making

You take the inner for the outer and the outer for the inner. What is in you, you take to be outside you and what is outside you take to be in you. The mind and feelings are external, but you take them to be internal. You believe the world to be objective, while it is entirely a projection of your psyche.

That is the basic confusion and no new explosion will set it right. You have to think yourself out of it. There is no other way.
