What is lust?

What we call as lust is not at all bodily or mental or physical. It is a little deeper than that. Lust is a misplaced notion. Lust is super-expectation. Lust is passion, driven by hope. Don’t you want to examine where the great force of lust comes from? Why does man commit so much of his energy to lust? There must be some reason, some hope. One does not just waste himself.
