A disciplined body will offer you freedom of movement  A disciplined mind will offer you freedom from fallacy.  A disciplined spirit will offer you freedom from craving.  

It is discipline, ironically, and not indulgence, that allows you the freedom to truly enjoy life.

    • Not intending to be mealy-mouthed, but it’s gotta be different for each person, right? Like I’d say that in general, people could start with diet, as the pull of food is so compulsory, but then there are people who are obsessive about diet to the point where it hurts their lives. The first place to start, I’d imagine, would be to be brutally honest about one’s tendencies and then experimenting with methods of optimization.

      • That’s good advice, and you do not come off as mealy-mouthed at all. Thanks. And you are right, we are each different, complex creatures.

  1. I notice that the first one is a “freedom of” and the second two are “freedom from.” Is there a “freedom of” related to discipline of the mind and discipline of the spirit? Just curious.

  2. Nice! Agree 100% As Pope John Paul II said [forgive my name dropping a Catholic Pope on a Buddhist post] “Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.” Striving to do what we ought to do takes discipline because its not always the easiest or the most popular or self indulging.

  3. 2 days ago you posted an article that begins with “I’ve offended…”. I noticed that there is no Post Comment button on the post. Since there is one here I figured I would ask if that is on purpose? Or is WordPress having problems? A few of the other posts I follow seem to be having the same issue. Some of your posts I can comment on and some I cannot.
