Perceiving the Bull

the Bull

You are startled at
perceiving the bull and then, because there is no
longer any mystery, you wonder if it is really
there; you perceive its insubstantial quality. You
lose the notion of subjective criteria. When you
begin to accept this perception of non-duality, you
relax, because you no longer have to defend the
existence of your ego. The you can afford to be
open and generous. You begin to see another way of
dealing with your projects and that is joy in
itself, the first spiritual level of the attainment
of the Bodhisattva.
