Moving Forward

"Perhaps our eyes need to be washed by our tears once in a while, so that we can see Life with a clearer view again."

Letting Go

Two monks were returning to the monastery in the evening.
 It had rained and there were puddles of water on the road sides. 
At one place a beautiful young woman was standing unable to walk across because of a puddle of water. 
The elder of the two monks went up to her, lifted her in his arms, and left her on the other side of the road. 
 He then continued his way to the monastery.
In the evening the younger monk came to the elder monk and said, 
"Sir, as monks, we cannot touch a woman ?"
The elder monk answered, "Yes, brother".
Then the younger monk asks again, 
" But then Sir, how is that you lifted that woman on the roadside ?"
The elder monk smiled at him and told him 
" I left her on the other side of the road, but you are still carrying her. "

Body, Mind & Spirit

"Good for the body is the work of the body, good for the soul the work of the soul, and good for either the work of the other."  ~Henry David Thoreau
