Five Precepts Blues; #3.10 - I'm a Fool to Want You

Billie Holiday • I'm a Fool to Want You

Once during Saturday Sangha, Chong Go Sunim briefly touched on something Daehaeng Kun Sunim said about sexual relations, that it's better to not have many partners because of the strong karma that is created.

There are a few people who haunt my memory from time to time, not all of whom I was ever even with. Now that I'm with EunBong, I'd much prefer to have just her in my thoughts.


  1. Last week I met with a group of male friends, all of whom are married. At least two of the men thought that it was "natural" to have little emotional affairs with other women, as long as there wasn't any physical contact. I wonder what their wives would think about that?

    And if their wives have a problem with it - and they would - why would the men think the behavior was acceptable?

    Sometimes we just want what we want . . . and fuck everyone else.

  2. I wouldn't dare take the risk of even that. It seems to me there's only one direction it could head.
