Recognize that you feel incomplete only because you are still seeking goals, a purpose – “inner” satisfaction.  Continue to seek what you have not found and you will succeed.  Complete the “work” of your self-development – have confidence in your self-discipline and patience.  You are in harmony with nature around you and everything will bear its fruit in time.  You are not alone now.  Turn within yourself to reap the rewards of self-development.  Experience your self awareness – distinguish what matters in life and what goals truly demand your best efforts.  Experience the sense of certainty that comes with knowing you have made the right choices and followed them with the necessary actions – for this produces a life that is productive and alive.  Success in “creating” yourself out of the material given you by the circumstances and conditions of your life – the ability to KNOW when others only guess.

Follow your goal to the end and do not allow impatience to get in the way.  Materialize, manifest and realize your dreams.  Harvest the fruits of your labors and prepare to plant again.  Certainty is the mark of a truly evolved person and to achieve this you have been required to give up normal companionship in order to achieve self – reliance, producing a certain loneliness in the pursuit of your goals.  You have had to give up spontaneity, recklessness and wandering.  If the sacrifice “appears” too great – perhaps you do not value enough the rewards of your self – development.  True discipline never cripples – it allows one to soar.
