Cravings do NOT happen in a Vacuum - 29oct21

To all who are struggling

with the prospect of living porn-free

(and those who have taken it a step further

striving to be masturbation free as well)

you are NOT alone.

Falling back into these habits

is less a commentary

on your intelligence and your character

and more of an indictment of your brainstem.

If you are prone to relapse

then open a fresh page

in the note pad app of your smart phone

and begin recording triggering circumstances.

For instance our friends at alcoholics anonymous

sometime ask,

“What circumstance is driving your desire

to reach for a hit of dopamine;

are you hungry, angry, lonely, or tired?”

Just as Anakin’s portentous dreams

drove him to the dark side

likewise no overwhelming impulse

happens in a vacuum.

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported

not by monasteries but by students

as such the production of these livestreams,

blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
