“I” Urges

Urges arise because “I” wants to satisfy some pleasure it’s making you think is needed, and “I” will win out every time until there’s awareness to not give into the urges and stay out of harms way…

It’s so important to not put yourself in harms way when it comes to urges, but it’s done because the way most minds are conditioned there’s a lack of awareness and discipline to make a stand against the energy of urges for a long period of time. I see this in myself, but very slowly the conditioning that attaches to the urge of “I” is losing its grip. There’s so much of our make up associated with our urges that you should sit with this to see how much control your urges really have over you. This is mainly so because of the temporary pleasure that’s gotten from giving in to the urges. Food, alcohol, drugs, sex (alone or with someone) gambling and so on, many things are used to satisfy the sense pleasures and if there isn’t awareness of this, it will be difficult not to get pulled around by “I” urges.

“I” urges controlled my entire life because of never having the awareness or discipline to not get pulled around by them which always put me in harms way. Of course satisfying “I” is at the root of this and whenever an urge is given into, initially it feels good, but it only last until the mind that told you to give into the urge poses the question, why did you do that. It has taken a few years to finally stop giving in to the urges of pleasure and it’s only because there’s the awareness of “I”. Grab that cookie and see how long the satisfaction last, by the way sugar is more addictive than cocaine. The point of this isn’t to say the pleasures of life can’t be enjoyed, but to just watch who’s attaching to them. See if you’re putting yourself in harms way which reinforces “I”. If this is seen you just may be able to not attach to “I” and lessen the control it has over you so you can truly live a happy, joyous, and free life; free from the alluring urge and control of “I”…
