Seven Day Fast

I’ve decided to fast from sweets and sexual activity for the next seven days. I see that I’ve become completely trapped by the allure of both and want to live in freedom from then as much as is possible. In fact, at this point in my life I feel I need to put as much time and energy as possible into uprooting the defilement of sexual attraction. Luckily for me, my wife is only too willing to help although I do worry about what will happen if she ever decided that she wants to return to that aspect of our relationship. 

Frankly, I’ve been dragged around by the noise by my own lust for my entire life and, almost certainly, in so many lives before this one. I cannot overestimate the difficulty of trying to remain chaste and celibate but there aren’t too many more noble pursuits I can think of. That’s why I’m starting small and trying to capitalize on small victories first. Wish me luck.
