Ten Bulls 7. The Bull Transcended

7. The Bull Transcended

The bull has vanished!

Ego has returned to the heart.

The mind is without thought.

This is apatheia: passion is ordered, wounds are healed. Though there are scars, ego remains forgotten.

Nothing is taken personally.

There is abiding calm.

The grace (the gift) of the Holy Spirit, has brought us this far.

The herdsman looks with eyes closed; looks with heart longing, not ego desire.

We are always beginning, and here the herdsman begins again.

In longing the heart hears our teacher: Jesus – human consciousness divine.

Listen to him (without thought): ma-ra-na-tha.

We are with him alone and together.

Let your heart open.

Longing can become consolation.
