All glories to Guru and Gauranga!
I came across these lines:
The entity that says, "I must be free of greed" is also greed. It is a negative form of emphasis on the 'me'.
So long as we enjoy it, there is no problem, but the moment it becomes painful we want to resist it. That resistance is what we call discipline.
There must be a quiet mind with depth to understand anything which my mind cannot fathom. The superficial mind is not capable of adaptability, pliability, sensitivity.
A mind is made dull by compulsion.
Discipline is merely conformity to a pattern of action through fear. We are afraid of not getting what we want.
Discipline is a process of decay. In discipline the inward conflict is hidden away; but it is there, burning.
Habit cannot be productive of intelligence.
The imitation is called discipline. We imitate in order to receive what another has.
There must be freedom for discovery. Freedom cannot come through discipline. Freedom can only come into being with intelligence. Intelligence is awakened the moment you see that any form of compulsion denies freedom.
Just wanted to know the perspectives of Krishna devotees on this.
