I’m not quite sure of the tone/type of comment to leave, as I’ve not done this before, but, I am struck by the great power of the desire in your article taking over rational thought and self control. It is familiar to me too, of course. I am interested in the range of feelings that might accompany ‘defeat and humiliation’ when desire takes us for a ride. I think the shame of these feelings can sometimes prevent further personal enquiry – i.e – it’s done – try harder next time- move on. Period. Do I know I’m going to be defeated by desire? Is there any point in trying to resist it? – and perhaps these ‘negative’ feelings of shame, defeat and humiliation are/become part of the desire?
