Release Yourself from Old Wounds
When they reach the riverside they see a young woman unable to cross.
One of the monks picks her up in his arms, carries her through the current, and sets her safely on the other side.
Then the two monks continue on their travels.
Finally the monk who crossed the river alone can restrain himself no longer and he begins to rebuke his brother, "You know it is against our rules to touch a woman. You have broken our holy vows!"
The other monk answers, "Brother, I left that young woman on the banks of the river. Are you still carrying her?"
Remember, when you hold on to old wounds you continue down the road carrying that burden....
Release yourself from your old wounds, and open your heart to new possibilities.
