#54 Discipline

A student asked his teacher: "Why should I practice discipline of the spirit?"

The teacher answered: "Because you have a problem: You're born, you grow, you age, you die. Those practicing discipline do not."

"Are you claiming that you are not going to die?", the student asked.

"How could I?", the teacher said. "I wasn't even born."
