I am unfortunately out of the house right now. College starting back up has thrown my life into chaos. I should be able to do discussions next week.

I watched this, and it was nice.

I would like to put my spin on the understanding and wording on what discipline is. It is indeed learning, but it is a very particular kind of learning to me. I would describe it as "internalizing the reason one must do what they do as the means of making it second-nature", and that is a particularly personal level of truly learning it, otherwise, you're only rehashing something for a shallow surface-level reason which doesn't last. This actually binds motivation into the notion, because when one is able to believe in WHY one is doing something, THAT is what drives the automatic action to stick with it, or "endure". And that is precisely what is behind the idea of being a disciple of anything.

That was me! Or more so, that was a picture of a muffin who is also me XD

This plane behind the visible, that we cannot see, remains without time. It provides the ebb and flow of life without us ever noticing it unless we submit ourselves to it and its teachings. It offers so much and it has always been there. It is the Force
