Temptation and craving

The fire of craving feeds on temptation. Then it hijacks the mind and causes it to spin pleasant fantasies and tell enticing stories.

It is difficult to debate with a mind seized by craving. You can’t beat the tempting reasons it provides.

Don’t bother arguing with yourself.
Just be still. Observe the craving mind in action. Note what it does.
And realise the suffering it is.
