In discovering a psychological defect of a lust enticing imagery in my mind I immediately meditated on the root of this defect. I discovered that the image was rooted in a desire for intimacy and also that this image was looking to feed itself and steal consciousness. I therefore say it was rooted in idol worship as it was looking to be worshipped. It was also rooted in abuse of imagination because it is not real and adds a lot of spice to the female form and foggy the reality of intimacy. Once comprehending this similar ideas still surface. I cannot eliminate properly these things as of being single. Pure magnetism is different from lust and I do want a spouse in a pure way. I don't want to repress but I don't want to be bothered by these images either. What to do?

Don't identify. Identifying with the egotistical element only makes it stronger. Do not lose faith or hope, since single practitioners can eliminate up to 25 to 50% of their ego. What is important is not to identify with the mind, to feel that this is "my" identity.

Repression and justification are two sides of imbalance. We need the middle path of balance: comprehension, which neither runs away, labels, or satisfies desire.

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!"
