Answer: You feel yourself inside yourself, your desires that depict the picture of your world inside you.
Question: Suppose there is a cup of tea in front of you, could it be cognac instead? After all, if it is an illusion, is there really a difference between tea and brandy?
Answer: If you change certain desires inside you, you will have cognac in that cup instead of tea, no problem. Do you know how to change your desires this way?
Comment: No, this is why I am asking.
My Response: This is the reason you have reached the wisdom of Kabbalah, in order to learn how to do that. Everything that you feel is your desires and this is what you depict for yourself. If you want to depict brandy instead of tea, you can do that, I promise you. There are many stories about Kabbalists regarding this issue.
