Sulfur is about discipline – how beautiful that can be on Earth. While some may moan and groan of the discipline of their life, and all life on this realm of astral existence, in truth it is discipline that gives us meaning and purpose.

Be thankful you have discipline, just as the sun and the moon and the stars do. Of course, your discipline is different than these astral bodies which some human make a discipline of studying. But in some ways, you are not really that different after all. Like the moon, you have your cycle you must respond and react to – showing a different face depending upon the phase you are at. Like the sun, you are a ball of energy that flares and storms at times. And like the stars, you beckon and beam to others and engage yourself in their gravitational pulls.

It takes discipline to navigate through such powerful energies and forces. Discipline to not be thrown off course, to continue in your orbit, to continue along your path: your life path.

There are many forms of discipline. Taking care of your physical body is an important type of discipline for some. Eating the right foods, imbibing healthy liquids, exercising your muscles and bones as they require, and feeding your heart and mind a diet of love and hope and belief.

Discipline is also about gratitude. It is about being thankful for the gifts you have been bestowed and about which your current lifetime is directed. What a wonderful challenge to hone yourself through your conscious intention and mindful and heartful direction towards expertise and self-knowledge. You will know when you have arrived because it will be so easy, like taking in a breath of air unconsciously and fully. That is what mastery is about and where discipline can take you!

Sulfur is a soft, yellow mineral that crumbles if held too tightly, smells if burned too brightly, but can be so useful if managed just right. That is precisely what discipline can do for you.

Now discipline is not only about hard labor and tasks. Discipline is a practical attitude and approach to all aspects of life. It is taking seriously what is serious while at the same time being able to throw back your head and laugh hard or sing like a bird.

Discipline includes perfecting your craft, whatever it may be. It can take time, maybe even many lifetimes, to acquire the discipline to fully carry out what you were brought here to do. But that is fine, it is as it should be, for it is your efforts – gallant as they may be – which is the ultimate message and worth of every man, women and child on Earth.

Anything you believe in, any dream you may harbor, any wish you may inspire, all boils down to discipline in one way or another. Do not give up, sulfur calls to you! Focus upon what you have chosen to be your discipline - it could be to be a great cook, a true lover, a stalwart friend, a caring parent. It might be to grow the perfect tomato, sing an aria, write a poem, compose a melody, pray in harmony with all the Earth’s creations. Let sulfur yellow – almost as bright as our sun – fill you with the light and energy to get your job done, whatever it may be.
