Discipline

I am reading a very interesting book “Awareness” by Anthony deMello.  The book is about how we need to “leave the illusions of our life” to awaken and really enjoy/live life.  

In the book deMello talks about having adisciplined mind. I thought this concept was really interesting and I wanted to share it with you.

..when I say disciplined, I’m no talking about effort. I’m talking about something else. Have you ever studied an athlete. His or her whole life is sports, but what a disciplined life he or she leades. And look at a river as it moves toward the sea. It creates its own banks that contain it. When there’s something within you that moves in the right direction, it creates its own discipline”.

What an interesting concept. We don’t need to put self limiting parameters we create on ourselves but the drive of what we want will create our limits. those limits appear to be much greater than what we put on ourselves.  Think about something your eally really want. You will do whatever it takes to accomplish your goal because you really, really want to achieve your goal. the banks or limits are created by your desire. Not by what you think they should be.

Lets let our discipline create our limits/opportunities.
