If you would ask yourself if it's good for you, you would respond, "NO."    (Try it.)

The longer you hold out when the urge is strong, the longer you will be on the madreigah of Yosef Hatzaddik.



Repeat after me.    "Right now, I am on the madreigah of Yosef hatzaddik."

You don't even want to.  It's the Yetzer Hara, The Satan who put you under hypnosis.


You are following orders of the one who will eventually put you to death.

The real reason and purpose of your having an urge now, is for you to post one more reason to say "NO."

It is pure INSANITY to say "yes" in the face of 90,000 reasons to say"NO."


Repeat after me.  "I would need to be INSANE to do this thing."

every time you act out, you are concealing yourself. simply put you, I found that when I act out it's harder to reach in to the energy one needs to fully experience life, on the other hand holding yourself in allows you to live life as a living person.

The reason I'm acting as if I'm pregnant, is because I'm expecting. I should be accepting.
