Facing your cravings is confronting a giant monster made of tin cans and string. The 30 foot monster is almost impossible to face as a whole. But if you disassemble him, into the cans and string and wire the craving monster is made of, each of these pieces, each of your cravings, is easier to deal with, one at a time. Think of the last time you met the pizza craving. Pizza craving it’s just one can in the assemblage. See if it’s possible to drop your struggle with the craving. Your goal is not to like having a craving, but to have it and let it be. How does it feel not to fight it, but to let the craving be? Drop any defense or struggle with your craving. Just observe it. Let the observer you, the part behind your eyes, just be with the craving. Watch the craving from behind your eyes. Look dispassionately at the craving. Acknowledge the craving, like you tip your hat to a person on the street. Don’t struggle. You can’t make cravings go away. You can’t.
