The Trap

The Trap

“One day Mulla Nasruddin’s wife complained to him, “It was you who was running after me and not I.  And now look at you, and your ways!  If this is how it was to be, why did you run after me?”

“Mulla said, “What you say is one hundred percent correct.  Have you ever seen a mouse trap run after a mouse?  The mouse gets himself trapped.  Your statement that I ran after you is absolutely correct.” 

“Women are very clever in this respect.  No husband can accuse his wife of running after him.  No woman ever makes this mistake, for she knows this problem is bound to arise sooner or later.  It is always the man who falls into the trap.  The woman watches quietly; at most she nods her head.  All the initiative is taken by the man.  Nasruddin is right; men walk into the trap of their own free will.” – Osho “The True Name” pg. 425-426
