Here’s a Zen tale worth reading again. It will elevate your awareness.

An old monk and a young monk were walking along the road when they came to a rushing stream. It was neither too wide nor too deep. They were about to wade across when a beautiful young woman, who had been waiting on the bank, approached them. She was elegantly dressed, and she fluttered her fan and batted her eyelashes, smiling at them with big eyes.

“Oh,” she said, “The current is so swift, the water is so cold, and if my kimono gets wet, it will spoil the silk. Won’t one of you please carry me across the stream?”

And she edged invitingly toward the young monk.
