In all facets of life, discipline is necessary. To walk down the street we need discipline,
to avoid being run over by a car. To play a musical instrument, to fly an aeroplane,
to be a good athlete; they all require discipline. Discipline is a natural part
of life. Often, when we are learning a discipline, we require the assistance of
a teacher or a guide; someone who has already mastered the discipline we are
learning. If we are obedient to our teacher, we learn faster, without resistance,
and with the humility to accept that they have wisdom and experience
to share with us.
