"less emphasis should be placed on obtaining total self-realization,
and more emphasis should be placed on knowledge of one's self.
Self-knowledge is the path to self-realization.
This is an important distinction, because many people want to fulfill themselves without the slightest knowledge of themselves.
They want instant perfection, a miracle that will transform them into a fully realized person. Actually the task is the most arduous one man faces in his life,
requiring constant discipline, persistent efforts, and the highest responsibility and wisdom."
