Mystic Osho tells a small story about our boated Ego.
I am reminded of one of Panch Tantra’s stories. They are tremendously psychological.
An elephant is passing over a bridge on a river, and a mosquito is sitting on the elephant.
The elephant is so heavy, and the bridge is just a temporary bridge. Poor villagers make them when the rains are gone and the floods have disappeared, and the river becomes small. They make temporary wooden bridges for themselves. For eight months they are perfectly okay.
But it was not made for an elephant because in that poor village nobody could own an elephant. It was just a wild elephant that had come to the bridge, and was passing over the bridge.
The mosquito, sitting on the head of the elephant, said,”Uncle, it seems my weight and your weight are too much for the bridge.”
The elephant said,”I was not even aware that you were sitting on my head. What are you doing there?”
Now, in this small story the elephant is not even aware of the mosquito, but the mosquito thinks,”Me and you, together, are too much for this poor bridge.”
