I’ve decided to post my essay here for the Dedicant Path’s “mental discipline” requirement, which states: “An essay or journal covering the Dedicant’s personal experience of building mental discipline, through the use of meditation, trance, or other systematic techniques on a regular basis. The experiences in the essay or journal should cover at least a five months period.” The essay is to be a minimum of 800 words with a maximum of 2400. Mine falls in between these limits at a word count of 1539. The “Dedicant’s Guide” is the book sent to each new member of ADF upon becoming a member. My essay covers the requisite period of five months–December 16, 2011 to May 18, 2012.
Since my essay is rather lengthy, I have elected to save the file to my Public folder on Dropbox and provide the link to it. The file is a PDF. https://dl.dropbox.com/u/37170741/Mental%20Discipline%20Experience.pdf
Please comment on what you thought of my experience!
