EXERCISE: Ask yourself -Are you in control of your desires?
How do you manage your emotions and your preferences and over attachments?
Are you giving away your power?
How can you be in control?
“The inability to control one’s desires and to see the world objectively is a factor of one’s dependency upon forms as sources a pleasure. The best way to control desire is your discipline, restraint in control of the sexual urge while at the same time getting insight into the nature of sexuality and nature of your true identity.” Ashby
EX: Consider your sexual preferences, likes and dislikes. They are not static and unchangeable. They are in your control.
“A person should ask -why is it a mom or sister, father or son is not seen with sexual arousal even if they are attractive? Sexuality is a mental concept and it can be unlearned or sublimated according to your will.” Ashby
Have you practiced taming your mind so that you return to power over your body instead of giving power away?
