Question 1
Beloved Osho, there is a Zen story about two monks who were returning to their monastery.
While walking ahead, the older monk came to a river. On the bank there was a beautiful young girl. She was afraid to cross alone. The old monk quickly looked away from her and crossed the river.
When he was on the other side he looked back, and to his horror he saw the younger monk carrying the girl across the river on his shoulders.
The two monks continued their journey side by side. When they were just outside the monastery gates the older monk said to the younger: That was not good, that was against the rules, we monks are not supposed to touch women.
The younger monk replied: I left her on the bank of the river, are you still carrying her?
Beloved Osho, would you talk to us about the alternative to suppressing or expressing our emotions?
