Personally i think such tension because now I'm more sensitive to the consequences of my choices, how the entire world is set up and how relationships are setup, and how sex is likely to be. Please help me to understand what is happening.


David Hoffmeister: Thanks for writing and sharing what's on your own heart. The desire for sex (and other ego appetites) falls away acim, usually gradually and progressively over the years of mind training. Allow the Holy Spirit to Guide, and the mind unwinds from everything it believed in and pursued. Yet don't project awareness to where you think you "want" it to be or "believe" it will be. Defenses are outgrown, as a kid outgrows toys that after seemed exciting and enjoyable. The focus is never on the proper execution, but always on the mind training.




I once felt exactly the same tension and sensitivity you are these are, and my first steps in surrendering my life to the Holy Spirit was allowing all my emotions to freely arrive at the top of awareness with repressing them. This was intense, and yet with much mind training this eventually passed.


Take a moment and inquire relating to this essential question: Where do I believe my safety lies? This whole world—everything that we perceive through the five senses—is created on unconscious fear. How do this be? By the energy of our mind. Your brain simply can only see what it believes, which explains why we have to release false beliefs. In the end, the spiritual journey becomes about facing this unconscious fear. This is actually the transformation of the projected world into peace. Once we perceive something fearful, we could always allow ourselves to set aside a second to pause as opposed to react. By having a moment to open our minds and invite Holy Spirit into our perception, we invite a miraculous shift in exactly how we see things, and we could start to forget about habitual reacting and conditioned behaviors. We then start to open as much as inspiration.
