The comic book Lucifer said, "They suppress and reject will and desire until desire turns to poison. And then they tell them the poison is good medicine."
I'm with him on this.
If you allow desire to reign supreme, or suppress it in any way, both methods end up turning it into poison.
The poison of desire gets to the heart, and eventually the soul.
I believe that the only way to deal with natural instincts is not to deny or to turn it loose. Simple, humble acceptance is always the answer.
Alas, they do not understand. And neither will they, if ever, see The Truth in time.
