The sutra
Joshu, the Zen master, asked a new monk in the monastery, "Have I seen you before?"
The new monk replied, "No sir."
Joshu said, "Then have a cup of tea."
Joshu then turned to another monk, "Have I seen you here before?
The second monk said, "Yes sir, of course you have."
Joshu said, "Then have a cup of tea."
Later the managing monk of the monastery asked Joshu, "How is it you make the same offer of tea to any reply?"
At this Joshu shouted, "Manager, are you still here?"
The manager replied, "Of course, master."
Joshu said, "Then have a cup of tea.

Question 1
Beloved Osho, I feel I want to be close to you, but at the same time I want to run as far away from you as I can. I don't understand this fear, since I am not aware of a feeling like this about anyone else.
