Brahmacharya

Yesterday was tough. I worked from home and spent most of the day in proximity to my wife. Quite naturally, a lot of craving arose and I was lucky to have narrowly escaped the clutches of akusala kamma. Contemplating the 32 parts of the body was especially helpful and the image of a cadaver’s skin being pulled off quickly snuffed out the flame of passion. Today is day four and I’m interested to see how this develops.
