You know how to do it.
You know how to be disciplined.
YOU know how to exercise this art.
But your mind doesn’t!
Your mind is the onboard biological computer that enables you to navigate through this reality.
You experience this reality through the 5 senses that your mind is responsible for.
For the majority of us, the mind has control.
Because we have forgotten how to be conscious and fully present within the body, the mind has been forced to take over.
This process takes place to ensure survival.
If you are not going to consciously guide and navigate through this reality…
Then the mind takes control and you go into a form of autopilot.
You will be here experiencing life but you will not be in control of the experience.
You will not be the master of your mind so how can you be the master of your fate!
So how do you take control of your mind and consequently your life?
Discipline is an art form.
It is a skill and like any skill…
It must be practised!
Discipline must not only be practised it must be exercised daily.
Every day you are faced with a choice.
Do you walk the path of your truth which is guided by your intuition…
Or do you walk away from the path of your truth which is guided by your mind.
What does this mean?
Well the choice of which path you walk will ultimately come down to whether or not you can discipline yourself from succumbing to the temptations of the world.
The mind is attracted to these pleasures and will always seek them out through the ego or false identity.
This is the character that the mind creates to fool your true self into thinking that it has control of the experience.
The mind controls the ego or character through the 5 senses.
Anything that stimulates these senses it craves!
For example, how many of us are addicted to sugar and feel happy when we receive a sweet treat?
The mind enjoys this pleasure through the sense of taste and it is addicted to it, constantly craving more and more.
If you let the mind control you then before you know it, you will be grossly overweight and will have diabetes!
The mind will be happy as it’s receiving pleasure but you can be damn sure that your soul won’t!
Look around you when you’re next in a public place.
The people you see who are overweight have no control over their mind.
It’s ruling their experience and food is the temptation that it craves.
So how do you stop this from happening?
