“You attributed to one million things in the world the joy that is within you. The Enlightened one knows this. When He enjoys something, He knows enjoyment is within Himself, as God does. The difference is: you got separated because you created enjoyment as a separate identity. If you were conscious all the time, you would never have misery, pain or affliction. Krishna said to Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita: “There is nothing in the three worlds that I cannot do or enjoy or achieve or possess. But still, while doing, I am not doing. While enjoying, I am not enjoying. It is my true Self only.” He doesn’t go outside Himself to identify with that. Everything is within Him. That is how He showed the Universal Form to Arjuna.

Once you get back to your Self and see that everything is within you, including enjoyments, then the distinction of within and without will be lost. You will not see the inside as Divine and outside as un-Divine. Krishna said very clearly to Arjuna, “All this is within me.” It is all One. All that you are trying to gratify yourself with is coming from you.”
