      Telescopes have immense capacities in
      the external world to show us countless
      galaxies. But if one wishes to look inward
      to study his thoughts, feelings, and desires,
      the telescope is on no use. An instrument
      should be used for the purpose it was
      designed to accomplish.

      Self-discipline is an instrument for
      becoming aware of and mastering one's
      internal states. The discipline that helps
      one gather the dissipated and scattered
      forces of mind should be accepted and
      practiced regularly. Otherwise the human
      mind deprives itself of the awareness of
      the higher dimensions of life.
