MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 28. 1.2
Chapter 28 : Evil Vrittis And Their Eradication -1.2
1. Lust, A Powerful Force : 2.
The love between a husband and wife is mainly physical.
It is of a selfish, ephemeral and changing nature.
He who has realised Atman can really love all with sincerity of heart.
The love between two aspirants based on psychological affinity and intellectual parity is real and lasting.
Get rid of selfishness.
Selfishness is a major dirt.
It clouds the understanding.
Remove it by selfless service, charity, study of Vedantic literature and Satsanga.
In a Jnanin, the sexual craving is entirely eradicated.
In a Sadhaka, it remains well-controlled.
In a householder, when not controlled, it does havoc.
It exists in him in its fully expanded state.
He cannot resist it.
He yields to it helplessly on account of his weak will and lack of firm resolution.
