Each human is an integral part of humanity at large. The qualities of one are re-presented in all, to some degree. To 'Know Thyself ', one is well advised to utilize to the maximum all opportunities to 'know other individuals'. This is effective only with sincere care. 
You cannot bypass humanity on the road to freedom.

Man does not know his body, he does not know his emotions, he does not know how his mind works. He is driven by his senses. He doesn’t know what touch, smell, sight, and hearing are. He takes it all for granted. He does not know himself! So it’s been said in serious circles more than once: ’To Know Thy Self is to Know Thy Lord’. Whatever that means, it’s a lot! Among other things God is supposed to be Peace, Truth. To know Thy ’Self’ is to know Truth, is to know Peace. And that is exactly, of course, what we are missing and why we are grabbing at and trying to explain the outer world all the time. But we’re not even doing that. All these impressions hit us, without our attention, and turn us around! They also cause the machine to compulsively mouth-words. To observe in a non-critical, non-identified manner or to ’talk’ are two quite different things!

To ’Know Thyself’ is not to know if you’re an artist, or if you’re important - it’s to know the ’what is’ of yourself. Now, if one doesn’t turn their attention to that, and never again in their life blame anything external for their discomfort, then they’re doomed to the general ignorance of mankind. You’ll have a lot of company - the old people’s homes are overflowing. Lots of company!
............. Hope in ’life’ - hope in the future! What you’ve got, brothers and sisters, and babies, you all, what you’ve got is Now! That’s all you got! The rest is a ’studio of pictures’. What you got is Now! And Now scares shit out of you!

You don’t know yourself all that well - so how can you expect anybody else to? Who do you want them to take you as? How can they know who they’re dealing with when you don’t even know, exactly? It’s just a fact! Do you know your thoughts, emotions, body, and how they come together in your actions? Do you know who and what you are? Can anyone else be expected to?
If only you were to stop losing so much energy by insisting that others take you this way or that; stop expecting so much from ’them’.
If you are not working to know the ‘who and what of yourself’ - then what else in god’s name are you going to do? Play Russian roulette?
At the end of the road is a very big something:
