Seems like the more I fight desire the more it attacks. My approach recently is to replace it when possible; Seeing and talking with friends that inspire me. Seeing saints and Masters that show me superior pleasures. Cultivating my mind with peace and meditation. Practicing the techniques the Masters give us. Keeping them in my thoughts as much as possible. Desire is always lurking in my mind but what the Masters have done for me and the practice of meditation has done for me constantly plays recordings thru my mind as well. I choose to listen because I know it brings me the greatest happiness. It is not that I do not recognize the desires and darkness of my mind and habits. I just don’t find it helpful to keep preaching to myself and feeling guilty. It’s better to redirect the minds and bodies activities.

At a certain point we begin to be more and more aware that what appeared to be thwarted attempts at satisfying desires was and is in fact the Masters blessings and protection. Practicing the presence and following the spiritual regimine outlined by spiritual masters does bring their blessings and discipline and can help us keep on track in our spiritual aspirations. This is inspite of the fact that we may work against our own spiritual progress. There are many ambiguities and paradoxes in human nature that we ourselves are quite helpless to work out without the blessings of the great ones. It no longer comes as a surprise to me that having had asked a Master for help and even being told that help would be forthcoming that it should be surprising to have discipline in the expression and satisfaction of desire.

We may find our job,career, friends and acquaintances all change as our spiritual aspirations become more focused to help gain more spiritual insight and progress.
