First of all my sincere apologies for bringing this topic in Q&A if it discomforts anyone here, the intent is just to know how to improve my spiritual journey. And Thank You those in advance who try to help.
Kaam/Vaasana/Lust (bodily or material) is always considered a taboo in spiritual life.
However it is also considered that no one except for Bhagwaan (one true God - Ram, Shiva, Vishnu, Brahma) has ever been able to conquer or burn it.
There is a story of even Narad Ji falling for it. Lord Indra has been also a part of various such stories.
As per few great philosophers, it is something not to be suppressed as it might have bad consequences if forcefully suppressed.
In today's world of technology it is not possible to not be touched by it for a person like me. (Job, Ambition, Interactions, Advertisements, Family)
I wonder what the ancient texts are trying to teach us with the stories that no one is spared from the feelings, and what we should do about it if serious in spiritual path, should we just accept it as a thing of physical body and move on, or should we try to control it like the yogis, or should we try to convert the energy with chakras, or should we just feel sad?
Any suggestions, tips, hints, links etc would be nice.
