Spontaneity and discipline

Today's Seth is something every artist deals with in creating their work:

“As your life is provided for you, so to speak, by these spontaneous processes, the life of the universe is provided in the same fashion.  You see the physical stars, and your instruments probe the distances of space – but the inner processes that make the universe possible are those same processes that propel your own thinking.  It is erroneous, therefore, to believe that spontaneity and discipline are mere opposites. Instead, true discipline is the result of true spontaneity.
“Value fulfillment of each and every element in life relies upon those spontaneous processes, and at their source is the basic affirmative love and acceptance of the self, the universe, and life’s conditions.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session June 4, 1984)
