Self Realization. Internalize the external.
All our lives we are taught to appreciate that which we will never be able to truly appreciate, and to neglect that which we should focus on.
We are taught about the satisfaction derived from an artificial and external projection of power, position, wealth, possession and achievement.
The true realization of the joy of these attributes, is when you achieve the very same, but focusing inward, on yourself, on your soul, on your being. The path to Self Realization.
In our karmic journeys, the external is preordained. We are fools to waste our time chasing, cherishing, lusting.
