Freedom and discipline are opposites and complementary. Discipline protects freedom. Freedom without discipline is absolute misery. Discipline without freedom is suffocating.
Being at peace does not guarantee freedom. One who is disciplined is the one who experiences real freedom. Freedom, like peace, is an internal concept; we can experience freedom only when we feel freedom within us. A disciplined man is able to organize his life and achieve balance between freedom and activities in life.
I can say here that I got freedom, from public and professional activities on my retirement from the post of Chief District Medical Officer Bargarh Orissa on February 29, 2008 since more than five years back, which is disciplined by practicing Yoga and Spirituality in my post retirement life.
