Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Maneesha.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, Bodhidharma added a spice to Buddha's cooking, which eventually became Zen.
Who else has thrown spice in Buddha's pot?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, I get so confused when it comes to women. I have so much trouble seeing the reality.
When a woman loves me, I feel strong, attractive, and I like myself much more. Then other women are attracted to me and I go to them.
That's when confusion really sets in.
If I act on the attraction, the woman who loves me, stops; then I feel guilty, weak, and unattractive, and lose the other women too. If I don't act on the attraction I feel false, cowardly, and angry with the woman who loved me.
It seems like it's necessary to walk a tight wire, and I get tired after a while and the fall is so painful.
Osho, I know my ego must be intermixed with all this, but I can't seem to sort it out. I have recently fallen in love again, and I'm afraid it will again end disastrously.
Would you please comment?
