The five elements that constitute the earth are also controlled by certain laws. Even the infinite ocean moves under certain laws and regulations. In order to get this limitation in the worldly plane, some discipline is necessary. In the context of the whole world, man’s life is only a part. Therefore man’s life has to be regulated. Whether it is for love, for hatred, or for anger, some regulation is necessary. For doing any kind of work in this world, there should be some order and discipline. Any work that you may do without discipline, will not yield good results. That which rules the world is the rule of law. What is required to control oneself and put oneself under the rule of law, is discipline. This control of oneself is like tapas or penance. A life, in which there is no discipline and control, will fail and fall one day or the other. One must recognise the truth that there should be controls on, and limits to, human nature. (Summer Roses on Blue Mountains, 1976, Ch 6)
