In our quest to Awaken this month, we started our practice last week with the reminder to keep it simple. To allow ourselves to gently focus on our efforts without adding too much to it.

This week, we continue to encourage our eyes to open with Discipline. I know, I know… it sounds a little harsh. BUT, in many traditional teachings what we find is that discipline is synonymous with JOY. Yes, joy. How could this be so? I believe it is because within structure we find freedom. Within stability, creativity thrives.

Join me this week for an exploration on discipline, judgment and joy as well as a 20-minute meditation at the end. How will applying discipline to your practice aid in your awakening? I hope you’ll try it and let me know what you find.
