Video Shiur: The Known Lust is compared to idol worship
Removing lust, purifying one self, from lust of woman. Be holy as HaShem.
If we look at the benefits of guarding our eyes, we see a deal that's impossible to refuse. The first major benefit is emuna, for emuna is contingent on guarding one's eyes and personal holiness. One's health, both physical and emotional, depends on emuna, so guarding one's eyes is conducive to good health as well. The long list of benefits continues with a strong connection with HaShem, wisdom, memory, prayer, Torah, marital bliss, one's soulmate and upright children. Rebbe Nachman writes that a person who guards his eyes will merit having sons who write elaborations on Torah. Since my father, Rabbi Machlouf Harush of blessed memory guarded his eyes, I have had the privilege of writing elaborations on Torah.
We must all make personal holiness a highest priority in life and make every effort, including extensive prayer and comprehensive learning, to attain it. Every unblemished day is a priceless achievement for posterity.
In daily self-assessment, one must ask oneself: what do I gain or lose by opening my eyes in places where I shouldn't be looking? One loses both this world and the world to come. And what does he gain? Nothing. Nothing would be a good gain, for in actuality, he "gains" purgatory. But if he does guard his eyes, he has worlds to gain and he loses nothing.
The more we think about it, the more 30 minutes daily of personal prayer for guarding our eyes and for attaining personal holiness is so critically necessary. We must appeal to HaShem's mercy in asking for help in closing our eyes ad in avoiding the many pitfalls that threaten to ensnare us daily. A person must literally shout to the heavens and beg HaShem to guard us from allowing forbidden images to enter our brain and to help us erase those forbidden images that already contaminate our brain and usurp so much of our memory capacity.
