Dirty Sci-Fi Buddha

Once basic needs are met (in the context of Maslow), it becomes incredibly apparent that discipline equals freedom:  the discipline to deny cravings, or engage in pleasure without compulsion; the discipline to adopt a trend, or contemplate the subversive; the discipline to do what you hate, celebrate what you love, or vice versa in either scenario; the discipline to strategize, or lose yourself in the present.  Discipline is not simply denial, but also acceptance.  To me it’s a targeted action/state-of-mind that allows me to get things done, then sleep at night when I have nothing else to do. 

Discipline will allow you to step wisely, to enjoy fully, and to live life in the manner you wish.  Yeah, I’d definitely say that discipline equals freedom.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
