The Pull of Human Senses

The understanding of being human won’t stop the world’s attractions from enticing you, but it may stop you from being totally pulled in which allows the control of the senses to dissipate somewhat…

There are many worldly attractions that are based in the human senses which constantly arise to pull you in, and they will pull you in as long as you are in this human form; how deep the pulls hold depends on your conditioning. Even with knowing what I know about the Conditioned Mind there is still the pull of the human senses that catch me at times.

This inner sense pleasure is at the core of being human and it needs constant fulfillment in some way. Awareness of this won’t stop you from being pulled in as the world is based in exploiting human senses, but at times it may stop you from being pulled in which allows the control of the human senses to dissipate somewhat…
