Discipline is a lost art that is seldom understood these days. Letting go of discipline you will repeatedly be slipping off the path back into everyday unconscious life. It is so easy to get caught up in reactionary life without the practice discipline.
The Toltec path of discipline outlined before is to remain impeccable in word, thought and deed.
The way of Tao describes a similar path as the practice of undiscriminating virtue. Practicing kindness and selflessness you naturally align your life with the Integral Way.
Remember: It is not that those who cultivate wholeness and virtue … do not encounter difficulties in life, It is that they understand that difficulties are the very road to immortality. By meeting them calmly and openly however they unfold and joyfully developing themselves in response to them, they become as natural, as complete, and as eternal as the Tao itself. “Hua Hu Ching” the Unknown Teachings of Lao Tzu, translated by Brian Walker.
