Question: The screen is a force that allows me to make calculations not for my own sake. Does a person make such calculations for any desires that arise in him or for special ones?
Answer: Basically on any but only to the extent that I have the strength to cope with them.
Question: There are basic desires related to the human body. Do we need to make these calculations on them too?
Answer: A person should make a restriction (Tzimtzum) on all the desires that he feels as a source of pleasure. At that, he stops receiving this pleasure and rises above it.
Basic desires are ordinary desires for food, sex, family, and security. They are not difficult to work with. It is much harder to work with spiritual desires.
