There is always an underlying charge of vital energy animating the body which is sexual in nature.

If you want to really simplify the idea of karma then you could start by considering it as cause & effect. From that vantage point, it appears to have merit: the way we treat others and ourselves does directly impact our lives, from our outlook and disposition to the relative success of our endeavo...
