A woman was confessing – she was a nun – she was confessing to the mother superior, crying, tears rolling down her cheeks; she looked tremendously disturbed. And she was saying, “I have committed a sin – something unforgivable.
This man entered into my room last night, and I was alone. And at the point of a revolver he made love to me. He gave me only two alternatives: ‘Either die or make love to me.’ I am ruined!” she was saying. “My whole life is ruined!”
The mother superior said, “Don’t get so disturbed, don’t get so worried – God’s compassion is infinite. And it is said in the old scriptures that a man is allowed to do anything if it is a question of survival – except spitting on the Bible. A man is allowed to do anything if it is a question of survival, and it WAS a question of survival for you.
So don’t be worried – you are forgiven!”
But the woman remained disturbed and started crying again and said, “No. It won’t help!”
The mother superior said, “Why won’t it help?”And the nun looked up and she said, “Because I liked it.”
You can deny nature but you cannot destroy it. It remains somewhere in the deepest recesses of your being, alive.
