Lust


Lust is more than an instinct and less than a feature.
Lust is the twist on the zero relentlessly turning it into an eight, a fallen eight, like the infinite.
Lust is when nothing aspires to everything or anything.
Lust is not yet seems to.

Karma is a consequence of lust. Because a mind with no measure acts havoc upon realities, exacerbates harmonics to catastrophic resonance.

If you think that you, by yourself, can turn off lust, then you are either a Tibetan monk ascending towards a rainbow body, or an Orthodox monk on the edge of a cliff above the Aegean Sea.

Hesychasm is a mystical tradition of contemplative prayer in the Eastern Orthodox Church. Based on Jesus’s injunction in the Gospel of Matthew that “when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray”, hesychasm in tradition has been the process of retiring inward by ceasing to register the senses, in order to achieve an experiential knowledge of God (see Theoria).

Meaning
Hesychasm, Greek: ἡσυχασμός, contemporary Byzantine Greek pronunciation: [isixaˈzmos], derives from the Greek Hesychia (ἡσυχία, Greek pronunciation: [isiˈçia]), “stillness, rest, quiet, silence”[2] and ἡσυχάζω Greek pronunciation: [isiˈxazo]: “to keep stillness.”

A solitary life is meant to be lived by a solitary person.

A social life looks like an exact opposite. And lust is part of socializing, of communication, from the innocent backwater village to the arrogant towering Babylons of glass and steel.

Paul speaks about the lovers of pleasure rather than God.

Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Traitors, impulsive, arrogant, loving lust more than the love of God,

See the comparison here?, the perspective and priorities?

Between the perfect white hat and the dreaded black hat, there’s a sea of grey, shades and shadows telling us where and what obstructs the light; where and what conceals truth in deceit.

Pleasure is more than lust, like in joy and happiness, like in Eden. Because if pleasure would not manifest as a consequence of Love, of the Ever-Living, of Presence, then one would imagine that God demands suffering and sacrifices. Forgetting that He took them all on Himself for the few hours on the Cross, when He had washed our past, present and future sins under His Blood.

Oh yes, there are human-looking entities, soulless creatures, impostors, wolves in sheep clothes, which have all the reasons to fear God, to see Him as PAIN because this is exactly how the Ever-Living feels for those demanding you to suffer in serving them, to make personal sacrifices in fighting their wars, to bleed and sweat in worshiping their void egos.

Those are the clients of Paul’s message, the hedonists of power and control, the anti-gods. Because Yasu Khrist, our Lord, feels like Fire – a fire that pleasingly heals into happiness or painfully burns throughout nothingness.

Let this sink in.

Aramaic Bible in Plain English

But you should know this, that in the last days hard times will come.
And people will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disloyal to their people, rejecters of grace, wicked,
Slanderers, captives to desire, cruel, haters of the good,
Traitors, impulsive, arrogant, loving lust more than the love of God,
Who have a form of God-worship and are far from his power; remove from you those who are such.
For some of them are these who crawl house to house and capture women buried in sins and are led to various lusts,
Who are always learning and are never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

2 Timothy 3:1-7
