Sex is supposed to be a social activity. You give and receive. There’s reciprocity. There’s love.
Lust doesn’t care about any of that. Lust is a symptom and source of selfishness. And selfishness is a leading cause of misery in the world.
The sexual area has a deep influence on who we are. Don’t think for a second that selfishness in the sexual area won’t carry over into every other area of life.
Selfish people are angry people. They are unable to build healthy relationships. Selfish people create a circle of suffering that encompasses them and the people around them.
Lust feeds selfishness. Selfishness feeds misery. Let’s choose wisely today.
