On Discipline and Growth From Shree Vasant's Teachings

Life can be viewed like the growth of a tree. If one stays focused like a pure tree, one will grow fast and high, all energies pointed upward. But if one gets entangled in different directions, different desires, then the branches can go any way. If you prune the tree just like if we discipline ourselves, the growth is more directed. One needs to keep one’s life very simple. This is done through DAAN  and TAPA. THE ROOT OF THE TREE DETERMINES THE DESTINY AND HEART OF THE TREE IS THE SELF.
