“Philosophical discipline is real simple. You have to develop a mind-set that works, one that liberates you, one that doesn’t generate negative emotion and insecurity, one that doesn’t involve too much control from the outside. So you can read all the great writings, but the central thing about the philosophy you decide to adopt is that it should be simple.
I don’t care for the sacred writings that are full of dogma, rules, and regulations. Every rule and regulation is a fence post of the prison you create for yourself. There’s a huge difference between rules and disciplines. Rules are imposed from above by control freaks, the government, the IRS, the church, your family. Discipline is something you take on joyously and willingly because you know it raises your energy and quiets the mind. Once you understand that, you’ll want a philosophy that doesn’t have a lot of rules. My religion is, don’t have too much religion.”
Stuart Wilde, in “Infinite Self”
