I think transforming and redirecting desire is closer to the mark. Instead of trying to reject or split off parts off yourself, the goal is to bring all aspects of your self to the Great Work. Although some 'guilt' and 'shame' style baggage may need ditching.
I always thought of it as refining, correlating and ultimately integrating all of the disparate parts in preparation for sublimation. I don't see how an individuality at war with itself can make any kind of progress in spiritual terms.
