Osho: Self-Discipline




1 November 2007
This is Osho, communicating about self-discipline.
Self-discipline is an intensely specified momentum-directive principle of self as self. Self-discipline is self-respect, is self-honor. Let’s look at self-discipline within this process we are currently experiencing. We have covered extensively within a reasonable amount of video interviews with regards to the mind as thoughts, feelings and emotions, which we refer to as the mind consciousness system, which humanity believes and perceives themselves to be.


Self-discipline is self-respect, is self-honor


Self-discipline in perspective of the process of each and every single individual human being who dare endure on, and within, this process of stopping the mind and realizing themselves as life from the physical of oneness and equality as all as one as equal. Self-discipline, here, must be specific.

Though, it is interesting. Self-discipline goes hand-in-hand with self-motivation, and self-will. If you do not will yourself and motivate yourself to stop your mind of thoughts, feelings, and emotions, then, naturally, you will not have the self-discipline to assist and support yourself effectively and specifically in every single moment.

Thus, self-discipline incorporates the specificity of you, of each and every single thought that comes in your mind; just stop it, absolutely. To apply self-forgiveness immediately, instantaneously, in that moment.


So, when a thought steps up within you, you stop, immediately. When you experience reactions of feelings and emotions coming, you stop, immediately. That is your will, your motivation, because you know, or realize, from understanding what we have been expressing, that you are not the mind of thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Self-discipline is that self-motivation, that self-will, to stop the mind for you, for the first time in eons of time, to realize and experience yourself as life, of oneness and equality, as all as one as equal.


Self-discipline is absolute. There are no half measures in this process. In other words, if it is just a “I am just doing this because it’s here and I’ll do it” situation, then it will take you longer within your process of stopping the mind.

The process of stopping the mind is seven years, possibly even less, maximum five, with absolute self-discipline, self-dedication, self-commitment, self-will, and self-motivation.

And it is interesting, because one is able to come up with extensive amount of excuses, justifications, and reasons for why application seems difficult, seems hard, when it has all got to do with you; your expression of yourself.


Who are you? In other words, are you self-discipline as you, in disciplining yourself to be self-committed and self-dedicated in stopping each and every single thought in every moment, not even allowing or accepting yourself to participate in any emotions or feelings, in any way whatsoever.


Within that, I have experienced an interesting observation. Within the specificity and intention - excuse me - within the specificity and intensiveness…*(unintelligible)* intention… With the word intention, I would suggest you watch the Design of Intention, while I am here, for anyone watching this video interview who has not yet seen it.

So, the specificity and intensiveness of your application in self-discipline, you will find extreme enjoyment. Interesting.


I experienced extreme enjoyment, and that experience of myself of honoring me in every moment of being absolutely self-disciplined, and not allowing any thoughts, feelings, or emotions to govern or control me; and also, in the specificity of applying self-forgiveness, the experience thereof is profound, is astounding and amazing. The experience of literally each breath you take, breathing life within yourself, and then you actually start realizing, “But, I am becoming alive for the first time.”

Thus, I suggest extreme self-discipline; not being hard on yourself, just disciplined, not allowing any thoughts, feelings or emotions to govern or control you in any moment whatsoever. Stand up as you, and take your own power.
Thank you very much.
This is Osho, on self-discipline.
