Yes, in your head you can betray someone by what you long to do, I agree. It's a very wise sentence and one that I'm glad I read though. I have betrayed people in this way but never, ever gone through with it in reality and so my higher moral code has won the day. One cancels out the other and then there is no sin. It's called being faithful. We all have these longings and thoughts from time to time, that's what's called 'being human'.: -)

Talk about motive and intention... Just to bare your imagination to people is something to think about.... Cheers. Subroto
