When lust dominates, greed dominates or anger dominates, we can't have a personal relationship with anybody. We have to become free from this lust, anger and greed. The best way to become free from lust, anger and greed is to actually have a loving relationship on a spiritual platform. This is the most powerful force that can itself undo these influences that are dragging us to hell.
