Why Is Lust So Bad?

Recommended Posts

Anything to excess is considered to be undesirable. Human nature errs towards extremes. Too much j4cking off is physically and mentally debilitating. If you prefer to be mentally and physically debilitated then by all means continue indulging in whatever floats your boat.

The Sikh faith is about balance, NOT about prohibition or abstinence when it comes to sexual issues, hence the emphasis and recommendation to lead a married life as opposed to celibacy. That sexual energy can be focused within the realm of a marriage.

Nobody ever said lust was "bad." It's over-indulgence and obsessive behaviour that's considered to be negative. The argument that "if it hurts nobody it's not a problem" is weak and one that is usually peddled by one-dimensional, weak-minded individuals in thrall to their base animalistic desires. We're humans with agency, not beasts. Well some of us are.

Why is it bad to lust after a person? Masturbation is a pleasurable experience, what is so bad about it that must be conquered spiritually?? If it hurts no one else, why is it bad?

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh, from your previous post about the your other thing, (I personally remember being the first commenter: http://www.sikhsangat.com/index.php?/topic/78832-the-girl-i-love/?fromsearch=1). Lusting after someone is bad because people are more complex than something you can desire, the 5 evils make one forget about Vaheguru. And masturbation, that depends, what do you think about when your masturbating, is it a woman or your own personal health concern. I had a huge masturbation problem growing-up a 14 page topic started by myself on the topic: http://www.sikhsangat.com/index.php?/topic/77288-masturbation/?fromsearch=1 . I am almost certain that it's usually a girl in your thoughts causing you to masturbate. There's a lot of things that are bad for you that won't hurt anyone else, (2 big ones are Khutha Maas and drugs). If you can masturbate without thinking about a girl or something sexual then by all means go-ahead. Good luck getting through your teenage years, as you'll definitely experience a lot of new things that may be exciting or anxious, maybe you'll see the world through an entirely new perspective from what you've grown-up as, and importantly you are probably going to find a time when your discovering yourself. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
