Firstly, id like to preface by saying that this is the type of thing i should ask a therapist or psychiatrist, I recognize that. But the reason why im asking my gurus is because i realized that i am constantly thinking about sex.

Secondly, its not like i dont practice any rituals or have any hobbies, this is simply an intrinsic part of my psychology that i need help understanding to further my spiritual progress.

Ever since discovering the gnostic path, and somewhat before then, sex has always been an elusive mystery to me. Its part of the reason ive been wrestling with porn addiction for a while. Whats truly striking is that I dont even have a partner, and I have never had sex before. Why is sex such a highly enticing concept for me? It goes beyond physical attraction, i can be totally unlustful and have an adoration for sex. It confuses me.

My main question is -
Am I doing myself any favours by prioritizing sexual matters 24/7?


These thoughts range in ethical purity by the way, sometimes they are horrid thoughts full of lust, sometimes they are pure contemplations with no imagery whatsoever. But everday, its always about sex for me. In the back of my mind, sex is always there.

Thinking about lust every moment of the day is like a lake churning with turbulence, chaos, and impurity. Chastity is the opposite: a lake of serene reflection that only knows how to show, upon its pristine surface, the image of the starry heavens. If you want to enter into the path and advance upon it, you must renounce lust 100%. An instructor in Chicago offered an entire article dedicated to this issue. We recommend you study it profoundly:

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!"
