The Natural Cravings of the BodyThe Six Appetites

  1. The Appetite for Food and Drink
  2. The Appetite for the Possession of Things
  3. The Appetite for Sleep
  4. The Appetite for Sensual Pleasure
  5. The Appetite for Expression
  6. The Appetite for Information

Dealing with the Appetites – Four Gradients of Inner-Control

  1. The Open Door Policy - What the appetite wants, the appetite gets
  2. The Curbed Appetite - Strong against some things, but an open door to others
  3. The Intentional Defense - Purposeful to repel, strong at times, yet not totally consistent in all arenas
  4. The Armed Heavenly Vault - Empowered to repel, empowered to restrain, empowered to say “no”, empowered to keep a sound mind at all times, and empowered to stay consistent
