Disciplines from other cultures and spiritual understandings continue to expand my awareness on the Wisdom Path.
A good example are the Yamas and the Nujamas that I learned about through Buddhist thought. I share them with you because I think you'll find them insightful:
Yamas: The 5 Forbidden Things, or Rules for Moral Discipline:
1. Renunciation of Power.
2. Renunciation of lying and deception.
3. Not stealing.
4. Moderation in all things.
Nujamas, The 5 Commandments or Rules for Self-discipline:
1. Purification of the body.
4. Study of sacred texts.
5. Conscious orientation toward the Divine.
When I live according to the Yamas and the Nujamas, I allow my discipline to be a beacon of light and not just say or write words. This path is real and is a needed path for all those who are moving beyond the mundane.
