Question

Hello I'm Nancy, I have been reading Osho and its message seems to me excellent, nowadays it is necessary to be able to extract these educations and to be able to read them and to try to interpret them, in my case they have been of great help and happiness for my life. My question is: Always for one or another reason I have not had a couple, I have a son but I have not been married nor with a stable couple, education says to me that I have to agree and to flow with the current, I know that what I raise is about desire and I am creating this distress, etc ....., but what must I do to find out why it happens and how to solve it?

Thank you

Answer from Master Kosen

I would like to know what is action for zen ?

Good morning! I am not especially interested by money or power on the other people; I have no political vocation - anyway, money is in process to win; I know that I will die one day - tomorrow or later, and I try to love the ones I love without succeeding in it the way I would like to (well, a bit like everybody I guess).
