So, I've pushed off of shore and am happily floating through the waters of abstinence. It's been mas o menos 3 weeks and I feel great. I have a giddiness, a light and a joy that I thought was dead to me. I'm happy about it and happy that my wife could sense the change as well. A few questions...
Being close to my wife yesterday, caused a lot of robotic reactions in my body and the pressure built until it was painful. Not terribly, but noticeable. What can I do with this extra energy? Being in the city (I'm in the middle of nowhere for a while now), brought up a lot of triggers for objectifiying sexual thoughts...any defense?
Desires for other people...after integrating the practice and philosophies behind Karezza, do these desires, this feeling to 'run wild' and copulate, to give in to the body, do they go away?
