The Importance of Discipline

I have been concerned with discipline and rules cut almost as long as I can remember and, as I age, I find myself even more attracted to self-mastery through feats of will than I was as a young man. This human like is si precious that it seems a true sin to pass it by in pursuit of pleasures which squander our merit and weaken us in the face of dukkha and tanha.

Perhaps that’s why I am inspired to come up with a routine of spiritual and physical conditioning. Not because I believe that I can develop this body into anything of lasting value but rather for the difficulty of following through and the strengthening of aditthana parami. I will post tomorrow but for now I’m too tired. Good night.
