Day 4 of 90: Living without secrets gives us freedom. Sep 18, 2020
If it doesn't come from Truth, or lead to Truth, why waste time with it?
Porn doesn't come from Truth, or lead to Truth. It comes from an illusion and leads us deeper into the illusion. Choose Truth, choose reality (meaningful relationships, creative hobbies and pursuits, the feeling of joy and love).
I like these lines :) stay strong
Thanks, brother. @PinkcityDude
You wake up every morning to fight the same 'demons' that left you so tired the night before, and that, my friend, is true bravery.
One of the most beautiful phrase I've ever read, thank you really much! Inspiring and encouraging others is bautiful, so thanks for doing that :D
Thank you @Thunder Blaster - I know that these phrases help me, and I am really glad that they can help other people too!
God never takes anyone halfway. God takes us all the way. We can achieve our nofap goals fully and completely.
He's clearly given us the ability to go "all the way" as you rightly say. Question is, do we have the will to progress spiritually or do we resign ourselves to be prisoners of our lusts?
highly appreciate encouraging.
We've got this! We can achieve any goal that's good and uplifting - we're children of God!
Exactly! We're meant to be increasingly angelic!
Yes! That's a great way of putting it! :)
Starting over is not a sign of failure, but a mark of courage. It shows you can give yourself, and your life, a second chance. - S Stabile
'I am human, I consider nothing human alien to me.' - Terrance
To me, this means that although I am capable of participating in negative acts, I am also capable of participating in wonderful and positive acts. If a human has done something wonderful or positive, then I can do it too. If another human has overcome PMO, then so can I.
I see it exactly the same way. It's all in us, the question is, what do we do with it?
Yes! Let's use our creative abilities for good - to make the world a better place (and to glorify God in the process).
"You must control evil thoughts in the first instance, or they will control you in the second." Mary Baker Eddy
Controlling thoughts...that's the rub. How do you do it?
That's a good question! I think we can't do much about thoughts entering our mind, but maybe we have some power over whether we entertain them or not - i.e. there is always the option to think about something else. (Although I reject the option often, unfortunately.)
Yes sexual thoughts are more compelling than "now what do I have to buy at the store this weekend?"
That said, thoughts do seem to feed off attention, so if we can somehow starve them of that, we will be good to go.

It feels like I have been here a long time - but it has only been about 12 days. Haha
