The idea is to stay in the moment and strictly observe, with intent, without opinion, remain objective with calm patience, all the while realising, knowing
that the moment is transitory and impermanant...

When you become aware, just noticing the moment, you realize that you don't have to think to act. It is automatic. But, if this is the main spiritual state of being to be in, what happens when you feel strong temptations again and again? Is it ok to just go along with it because it is all in the moment?
Isnt this saying that it is ok to be materialistic chasing delicious food, sex, and money since it just happens in the moment?
Even if actions just happen WE are still responsible because if we stay "aware" and let the body be automatic, we Will still feel the pain whether it be stomach ache, sexual disease, etc.
So I'm asking all of the be-in-the-moment people, what is their solution to this?
