A nice video encapsulating the idea of 'know thyself' and self-work that I came across a while ago. I don't necessarily agree with all of what is shared, but the core essence of the message is sound (Imo):
"We check and repress the divinity that stirs within us, to fall down and worship the divinity that is dead without us."
-- Henry David Thoreau, 1851
