something I read...

I read this recently and couldn't agree with it more!  Thought I'd post it to my journal, to share. "When discipline is imposed from the outside, it may be problematic.  But when it comes from the inside, with knowledge of what is helpful and what is harmful, then we develop the wish to refrain from what is harmful.  This is discipline imposed by our own mind, with an understanding of the consequences and the benefits of our actions."  - - The Dalai Lama
