Insight Wisdom Understanding
It is very easy to get lost in the world of forms with an external focus relentlessly searching, seeking, and consuming. Some are so consumed by the outer world any attempts to look at the inner can cause panic attacks. Yet Rumi the great eastern mystic advises us to "Work in the invisible world at least as hard as you do in the visible." For with insight comes understanding, and with understanding, wisdom and love. In fact after taming the mind through calm abiding meditation, this is the next step to enlightenment and discovery of our true selves, and all of the other "immeasurables" of joy, peace, beauty, and many others through insight meditation.

Also, the blog True Happiness gives a very sweeping and encompassing perspective on how we are trained to seek outside ourselves when the truth is the most important and valuable gifts are found within.
