Aphorisms of a Derelict Yogi
Sayings of a modern mystic who was down-on-his-luck
(more about the Yogi)

"If you screw around, you'll get the clap"

"If you screw around, you'll get the clap"


The Yogi lived through the 60s, the era of "Free Love," when "the clap" (gonorrhea) was pretty common. (I think it's still pretty common.) He once told me that the only people he knew who didn't have it were the few who never had sex!

Anyway, he was always big on personal responsibility. He always said that whatever we do will have consequences.


This is "The Law of Karma." The word karma itself just means "action," but it's tied into the concept of cause and effect. Simply put, the law states that "we reap what we sow"; our actions determine what happens to us next.

1. What do you think of the "Law of Karma"?/p>

2. Are there other sources of trouble in our lives besides the consequences of our own actions?
