Dear Gurudev, how to maintain a balance between discipline and freedom?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

You should know that they appear to be opposite but they are complimentary. Discipline brings freedom to us.

As a child you were disciplined to brush your teeth every morning and every night. That discipline brought you freedom from tooth ache and tooth decay, isn't that so?!

If you have the discipline of getting onto the treadmill, then that brings you freedom from cholesterol and other problems.
