    You can count the drugs out!

    Maybe I should become a Monk?

    There is no way to purge yourself of desire. Wanting what you don't have is part of what makes you human. Without this desire you would have no dreams, no goals, no urge to better yourself.
    But sometimes wanting what you can't have hurts you like nothing else. And if there's an answer to that problem no one has found it yet.

    By leading a life of service.. serve others, help people, wipe a tear from somebody's face. . with each passing day your desire to please yourself will decrease as you will get greater joy in helping others...

    I don't think desire leads to misery.

    I believe desires only leads to misery when you

    A. Either are not honest enough with yourself enough to pursue it

    or

    B. Not mature enough to accept when you have failed to fulfill it and move on without being bitter.

    let me add one:

    C: When it jeopardizes your productivity. Productivity comes first, it's what pays your bills and ultimately the conditions on which your libido depends. One can have too much libido.

    D) You don't actually know what you want, and are pursuing something that isn't truly what you desire.

    Eden saidPattison,

    A gay monk sounds like a cool idea. You'd be the second one I know, besides yours truly. icon_smile.gif

    Question: How can you be monogamously-partnered and celibate?

    Pleasantly intrigued here. icon_biggrin.gif


    Simple I'm in a long term relationship of 20 years that has not involved sex for whatever years now. So since there is no sex he is not my boyfriend but my companion (still a relationship); it's as simple as that. It's kinda nice to be able to keep a man when the sex is gone, and the other guy is happy to stick around. Albeit I do understand the healing sex can bring to a relationship too.

    But that what I have spent the past 20 years doing, and yes it has been humbling. I joke sometimes my father had servants and now I am one.

    Once again it has nothing to do with me dick Freddy. I controle that, and expect to live the rest of my life without touch. So I may as well become a Monk, or a Nun because I'll get nun.

    And thats the answer I want. I want no more dreams, nor goals, I'm the best I can be, I just never pursued my one true passion to it's fullest music, to sing. The thing that stoped me taking a long walk off a short plank many years ago, was the fact I had dreams, and wanted to find myself, to over come my struggles and become me, to be able to get to know me. I've achieved most of that, it all just seems like a fucking waist of time right now.

    Since the murder of my soul mate in December all I really seem to do is breath anyway. I think of others and not myself.

    I don't want the weakness of wanting another person to be apart of my life again. To live in this world, yet not be apart of it. I should become a monk.

    You must remove all temptations from around you, live a secluded life with nothing but your thoughts to keep you entertained.

    But, instead of purging yourself of desire, another option is to accept that desire is a human condition, and learning the ability to keep it from leading to misery is an attainable goal.

    In many ways I've done that. I lock myself away in my garden as much as I can. But I still have to leave it's walls to work, and my work involved assisting the old, and disadvantaged. The problem is by nature humans are not solitary animals either, and this gives us desires, and thats what I want to purge my body of, as it's a weakness.

    Well, there a lot of desires, everything from wanting more friends to wanting a lover to wanting simple interaction with others (acquaintances). Or just wanting a nicer home, better job, etc.

    Desires can also be strengths; it's from desires that we're inspired to make changes.
