InPresence 0055: Self-Discipline

InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.

Here he confesses that he is not the most disciplined person in the world. During his lifetime he has practiced various disciplines, such as long-distance running or yoga, but they have generally fallen away. Presently, creating the daily InPresence monologs has become something of a discipline. He brings up William James' call for a “strenuous” mode of ethical behavior, as being a requirement of our time. He urges viewers to consider small changes they might make each day to increase discipline and become the best versions of themselves.
