Letting go

Two Zen monks were walking along a river when they came upon a beautiful young woman. The bridge was out, she tearfully explained, and she needed to cross the river right away. "Don't worry, said one of the monks, just climb on my back and I'll carry you across".

The girl climbed on the monk's back and he took her across. The monks then continued on their journey, but the second monk was very upset. Finally he couldn't stand it anymore and said, "How could you, a virtuous monk, allow an attractive young lady to ride upon your back?"

The first monk said, "Are you still carrying that lady? I put her down when we crossed the river."
