"This relationship between sex and mind is also evident in the Gospel, when Jesus says that even when you look at a woman with lust, you have committed adultery, meaning even the idea of it, even the thought of it is a crime, is an abuse of sexual energy. " quoted from the lecture transcripts of "Awakening of the Seed"

I have stopped using the physical orgasm all together, but I have been experiencing an increase in the abuse of my sexual energy in the form of lustful thoughts. Every time I feel confused or frustrated I get thoughts of anger accompanied by many thoughts of lustful imagery and extreme sexual fantasies in my mind. In the blink of an eye, I find myself sabotaging the efforts I have made to awaken consciousness. I have always been eager to learn how to live in the moment, but never pursued any real attempt at this level of awareness.

I try to control my thoughts after they occur. I try to replace the lust with a feeling of innocent compassion, but I feel as if it is only a feigned attempt at something real. The lust grows stronger. I have never attempted to learn how to control these negative processes in order to prevent them all together. I feel like I am missing a large amount of experience from practicing these skills. I have always felt a pull inside me to address this problem. I just never attempted to control it or transform those impulses.

I have many negative types of thoughts so quickly that it catches me off guard. I want to be able to listen to a lecture or do everyday tasks without getting blindsided by anger, hate, or lust. Just being exposed to any phrase containing the word sex can start this process. What can I do to control this? How can I free myself from these burdens in my mind? Please understand that I literally started learning about Gnosis a couple of weeks ago. Until that point I had a girl-friend who encouraged physical orgasm. I broke it off because she was not willing to consider that the orgasm could be part of the problem. No information is too fundamental because I am a blind man-child lost in the wilderness without any personal knowledge, guidance, or experience. Any information you can provide will help me more than you know.

Students and even experienced disciples encounter this problem. The solution is not to repress the mind, to hide from it and control it by force, neither must we indulge in its desires. Instead, we must learn to comprehend our mind, since cognizance of our defects leads to their elimination within profound meditation and prayer to the Divine Mother.

Psychological elements perceived in action throughout the day must be analyzed in meditation. We must learn to comprehend our mind, for once we comprehend the destructive nature of lust, we cease to dwell on those thoughts. If we, however, do not comprehend our lust, but feel anxiety and stress whenever we encounter those elements in our mind, this leads to repression, which does nothing but exacerbate the problem. In order to dissolve defects, we must first comprehend them. This begins by learning to observe the mind, to not reject, indulge, or repress its impulses; neither to indulge, feed, and satiate our craving. Comprehension is the middle path and leads to peace.

Study and meditate on this following text:

Treatise of Revolutionary Psychology.

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!"

I purchased the Introductory Pack a couple days before I posted this question. Something inside me has been leading me for the past couple of weeks with persistence. Shrouded in confusion, I reluctantly allowed myself to be lead from my subtle curiosities of self improvement to the burning question of "How to truly free myself to provide assistance to my fellow humanity?"

The first part of that answer became crystal clear after watching a video called "The Secret Gate To Eden" on youtube. When the video was over I took notice of the website listed and have not looked back since. This was not the first time I felt this force inside me, guiding me. I have always wanted to help people, but was never able to step outside my selfishness, anger, or pride. Now I have a true path to permanently free myself of the suffering caused by the egos. It also simultaneously challenges me to serve others through loving sacrifice without any false motivations.

I am slowly and deliberately progressing through the lectures to reach a personal level of understanding with the material of each lecture. I just completed the lecture - Beginning Here and Now: Consciousness. I took many notes about the process of reaching the permanent and penetrating state of "Turiya". Realistically, I have much more to learn before I can first grasp the state of "Dianoia".

The quote, "Nature does not make leaps; everything in nature grows in accordance with its own development and its own needs and the consciousness is no exception.", helps me to remain focused on moment to moment improvements in my journey to reach a state of constant self-remembrance and self-observation. I will read "Treatise of Revolutionary Psychology" and meditate (to the best of my current abilities) upon its meaning.

Thank you for your response to my question.
