July Mantra - Tapas (self-discipline)

Accepting that life is not easy and we all face hardship, our Monthly Mantra for July reminds us to stay the course. Our daily practices of tapas, or self-discipline, can teach us how to pick ourselves up and deal with whatever life throws our way, and that can be a profound transformation in our lives.

Here's some inspiration from author Deborah Adele: "In those times when we don't know how to get through the next minute of what seems unknown and overwhelming to us, can we hold on until we are somehow blessed by our struggle? Discipline will mold us into someone of great depth and profoundness if we let it. Can we stand the heat of being dismantled and changed forever by the fire?"
