lust as a tanha is no different from greed or hatred.spiral wrote: ... And all in all I cannot imagine someone watching porn, cleaning up and then pulling out the zafu for an hour of meditation with any amount of sincerity...
each individual have those difficult to root cravings which takes time and effort to overcome.
meditation allows us to id these cravings and gradually overcome them.
for most people, certain cravings are easy to overcome and others takes effort and time.
As your meditation progress, those easy to overcome cravings are first to go.
but that leaves quite a big void for the rest of the cravings to fill.
which means, one may find themselves back tracking on certain bad habits before overcoming them.
but the key is not to give up and continue patiently with resilience.
as your wisdom grows, you will be able to navigate around these tanhas and destroy them eventually.
my point is one should continue placing effort in meditating sincerely no matter what cravings one suffers from.
