Chapter Four: Discipline
The direction for her exercises came from deep within herself. From her ancestors, and from her intimate link to the cynergenic field, through which she could commune with those who were not directly linked to her heredity.
Through the nous-sphere, Kathy connected with the assembled masters of every tradition, they instructed her; physical disciplines, martial disciplines, cognitive disciplines, the full scope of human knowledge was accessible to her.
Kathy’s memories spoke to her, they guided her, the ancestral voices focused her, kept her calm, allowing her to see her own life and experiences in the context of the collective experiences swelling within her.
She formed plans spontaneously, in order to realize her goals, her powerful mind operating beyond the limits of time and space, and then she had to slow everything down, to allow her body time to make the adjustments she was preparing it for.
It was excruciating, she wanted nothing more than to allow her mind to drift away, to leave the cares of the flesh behind, but when she felt that way, the chorus would rise within her, reminding her that she has a purpose to fulfill.
To fulfill that purpose she must prepare, be quiet, discreet, not draw attention to herself she must develop, both her physical strength, and the strength of her mind.
Kathy could shut the outside world off and retreat into the recesses of her internal life. But she could not escape from the voices within, they were always with her. She might ignore them for a time, but she could not depart from them, and even if she died, she knew that she would remain with them, as with all people, a shadow imprinted on the cynergenic field.
Kathy followed the path of discipline, to protect herself from the world and from what was inside her, both.
