Toxic Desires in a Toxic Body

With a physical body, we are all living in a physical world often filled with toxic desires. Do not let the body become toxic too.

In the physical world, our bodies with their five senses (seeing, smelling, tasting, hearing, and touching) are constantly exposed to sensual sensations around us that may create desires in our bodies. In addition, we all have both a conscious and subconscious mind that process and interpret our physical sensations, leading to thoughts that may be positive or negative, depending on our mental input. The mind plays a pivotal role in changing negative thoughts into toxic desires in a toxic body.

Our conscious minds voluntarily control our mental input (that is, what we want to remember and what we want to forget); but our subconscious minds involuntarily absorb all physical sensations we are exposed to.  The subconscious mind is the master mind behind all actions that the conscious mind takes; therefore, it is important to have the wisdom to understand better how the subconscious mind works in order to have better control of the conscious mind, lest the subconscious mind create toxic desires in a toxic body.  

To illustrate, according to CNN (1/24/2014), Bob McDonnell “was once one of the Republican Party's rising stars. There was even talk of his running for the White House. But today, the former Virginia Governor and his wife are charged with taking gifts from a local businessman in exchange for using the governor's position to help his company.”

Four years ago, McDonnell was sworn in as governor. Demonstrating his potential as a rising political star, he gave an outstanding GOP response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address; he had won back the governor’s office from Democrats by double digits.

But now McDonnell and his wife are both facing criminal indictment for taking expensive gifts, including luxurious Rolex watches, they were not supposed to.

In politics, there are always political rock stars tumbling to fallen stars at their own hands due to their toxic desires in their toxic bodies. Some survived (like Bill Clinton), but most ended their careers in disgrace.

How could a political rock star become a fallen star? Toxic desires in a toxic body!

We all have desires, which come from our five senses. For example, when we see something that pleases the eye, such as an expensive Rolex gold watch, we become desirous of it. That perception can be voluntarily rejected by the conscious mind, but it may be imprinted involuntarily on the subconscious mind, which, unfortunately, controls and directs the conscious mind. So, if the conscious mind does not even voluntarily reject the perception, it may become a toxic desire. Ideally, the mind should control the body, but if the body controls the mind, that is, letting the toxic desire get out of control, the mind will do just anything and everything—even to the extent of breaking the law—to gratify that desire of the body. That’s how toxic desires in a toxic body come into being.

Learn how to increase your mind power to control your subconscious mind to your advantage.
