This is the second time I have seen you post something like this and you keep leaving out a very important fact: all of the negative impulses are
negative because they have been perverted
What I mean is that, the impulses themselves are good and are needed, because they invoke and make achievable good things - good conception - but the
way in which they have been conceived, or conceptualized - that is what is bad, or has been perverted: they have become harmful or achieving of bad
So... we cannot simply dissolve impulses without causing problems. Instead, we need to reform them into the good impulses they are meant to be.
e.g. Eating too much stems from a good impulse to replenish yourself (for achieving good conceptions later on), and the satisfaction of fulfilling
that good conception to replenish yourself; and maybe they are one, like a impulse for satisfaction. Nevertheless, it is an addiction to the carnal
pleasure, or satisfaction felt when eating, which causes an increase, or perversion, of the impulse to eat [thereby becoming a gluttonous or harmful
impulse]. But as you know, we cannot simply dissolve the impulse to eat - no, that would kill us. So, instead, we need to remake the impulse into a
desire to only derive pleasure from sustaining ourselves, and not from over indulging.
But yeah, other than that, I wouldn't change anything you’re saying - and I'd add an emphasis on becoming aware of the impulses -- I think that is a
very key part: becoming aware of the impulses byway of how they feel before they're enacted
, and through that improved conceptualization, or
conception, we can "restructure" the impulses so they're conceived properly.
