Can discipline be a trap?  Absolutely.  I myself have fallen victim to stale, tired routines.  But the core of discipline—the ability to turn down instant gratification and give genuine consideration to uncomfortable possibilities—is ESSENTIAL.  The traps of the world are baited with hollow pleasures and packaged, lazy thinking.  

The discipline to see past those glitteringly false premises and sweet gratifications…that’s a necessity of becoming fully human.
