how do we know, that we have not restrained our lust, when it attacks us? Lets say for example we used some a prayer discussed it the course Defence for Spiritual Warfare
combined with self-observation and relaxation, maybe after a while the ego returns again and we use again the same method. I restrained my lust in the past, which made it to return only stronger, so I don't want to repeat the same mistake. Maybe my mistake is to try to find a way aout of the "situation" without meditation, postponing the unavoidable, meaning the death of this ego or egos that keep returning. Thank you.
