Do not be fooled by the illusions

by GYE (See all authors)

Our brains are wired to make us irrational when it comes to sexual desire. The wiring in our brains tells us that there is something extremely fascinating in women, something intriguing and sublime. As if all the secrets of the universe can be found in females. What fools our brains make of us! We need to keep telling ourselves that this is a trick of human instinct, of the Yetzer Hara. There's nothing fascinating there. Women come from the same putrid drop that men do, and their flesh will one day be eaten by worms. Don't let the wiring of your DNA take away your common sense. Don't lose sight of that which is truly fascinating and sublime--that we little humans can have a connection with the Almighty G-d!

Indeed, it is those who are not fooled by the illusions of false enthrallments who become worthy of experiencing a true captivation with G-d's transcendent awesomeness.
