How to control sexual impulse?

Recommended Posts

Note sexual impulses with equanimity, but don't feed into them. There is the noting of mind objects, and then they are gone, and then there is the reifying of mind objects, which is desire based and cyclical. This creates a positive feedback loop, wherein the attention is drawn back to the sexual mind objects again and again, and fascination increases, strengthening the tendency. The noting process does not involve a 'shying away,' or negative attachment process. It sees what passes, but does not insert any more energy consciously or willingly, neither does it try to defend or draw back. The subtle subconscious stirrings, wherein you apparently have no control over the fascination, indicate the amount of awakening you have to do.  'Neither taking nor giving,' remain in the center of the storm, in non-doing.
