< Clarity 5 > There is still an overlay of what we call unbalanced discipline in your life. Oh, it's an overlay for humanity in general. But, we are going to ask you to take a look at it in your life. So many of you have an old vow or a series of vows that were done in a number of different lifetimes that helped to build up this belief system, old vows that you continue to hold onto that create the reality that you're living in right now.
< Clarity 5 > You have a belief that you have to be disciplined in order to get by, have just enough. You have to discipline yourself in diet. You have to discipline yourself in working out. You have to discipline yourself mentally and, more importantly, discipline yourself spiritually. There is that old saying - no pain, no gain… no discipline, no structure, no evolution… you see. Many of you have vowed discipline. Perhaps, you didn't say those exact words, but you were vowing to keep yourself so focused that you didn't see anything else… you see.
< Clarity 5 > That overlay of discipline has been built up in societies and cultures all across the Earth to where it is still very prevalent. And, that disciplined overlay, triggered by old vows, is one of the things that literally help sustain - how to say - this consciousness of Earth right now of just enough, just barely enough. It's perpetuated in schools and in churches and by governments. You have to work hard. You have to stay disciplined. Your parents reinforced it for you because they were part of that consciousness. Discipline… discipline yourself. Focus… focus.
< Clarity 5 > Discipline is like that hamster in a cage running on the wheel, thinking it's going somewhere, thinking that it's accomplishing something. But, it's just going in circles. This overlay is very interesting. It would be interesting to do an entire study on the overlay of discipline, especially as it relates to old vows, and how it influences your life right now. You think that you have to discipline yourself in order to maintain your weight. You don't. You only imagine yourself if you want to have your weight in a balanced place. You think you have to discipline yourself to succeed in business… if you want to be like everyone else, perhaps. But, if you want to discover the fast track, the easy track, really what we would call the sacred track, you let go of this whole aspect of discipline.
< Clarity 5 > You think that you need discipline to keep you focused. That is actually what has kept you limited. Discipline will definitely create a focus, but the focus can be so limiting. And, it causes things like depression. The human spirit was never intended to be so focused, so limited that it got lost. That is why so much depression occurs because these beings are screaming out from within, screaming out to be who they are, to enjoy life. But, all of the overlays, all of the hypnosis from themselves and from society holds them back. It is probably one of the greatest causes of depression - limitation. The spirit was not meant to be limited. You are not meant to be limited.
