I read this article whenever I'm tempted to do something that will create barriers between my soul and myself.

Thank you Sally for the article!

Fasting, or going without solid food for 24, 36, 72 hours or longer helps you curve your desire.

The more I try to say 'no' to myself, the more I want it!

I noticed that learning to stop in the middle of my thought and carefully analyzing what I'm doing helps me control not only my desires but also my emotions.

Sat Nam, (reverent greetings)

At the point at which your desire is a mere thought - you have a chance to stop it. When your emotions and glands get in there - it takes a huge amount of energy to stop you from acting on the desire.

Just take 7 long deep breaths and the 'craving' will disappear !

Try it !

Guess what?! I am a materialistic, I love beautiful things,clothes,books.However I do also love be able to go sleeping and not worry about my financial situation.
To tell you the true it is a disaster.And it was a situation I
did not planning.I lost my job because I got very sick and
not even a month after that my husband has to have a surgery,all this happened in 2003,and until now I was having a lot behind bills.Well ,today most of my important
bills it is on time,but even now I am still not cleaning my
name.But I learned to live what I have,I love to have a Ipod ,I go to YMCA ,and, when I do my treadmills or other
workout I love to listen to music but I used what I got
a casset player, some people laugh some does not even
know what is it, and like my personal trainer, she thinks
it is soooo cool, and I do too. I am still broken, but now i
learned a great lesson,I can not find happiness from out
side, not matter what I have,...Because I found true happiness inside myself,even my friends does not understand how can i be happy, funny,when i do not
drink, smoke .But they will one day I know because I
found what I am looking for but I am still just a beginner.

I thought compared to "most people I know" I'm pretty unmaterialistic- I buy used stuff, reuse, and recycle. Yet I'm in the middle of moving and there is just a seemingly endless amount of "Stuff". stuff i wonder if i will ever need or use. This was really helpful in reminding myself to only buy things I really need.

I've finally learned that longing to change what I have no control over was hurting me MORE than the not having what I desired!
