Discipline

To talk about discipline is to make some people uncomfortable. Understand that discipline is not to keep us from doing things, but to give us the freedom to accomplish other things. It is not vital to keep to the letter of the rules, but to understand the rules and live by their spirit. Is a starving man wrong to steal a piece of food so that he or his family can survive? A teacher once said “Show me a set of rules that has never been broken, and I will show you a set of bad rules”. Being disciplined in both mind and body keeps one in harmony with the Tao.
