Ten Bulls 8. Both Bull and Self Transcended

8. Both Bull and Self Transcended

The fulfilment of the heart’s longing is beyond the distinction of Creator and creature.

I is no longer, duality is resolved in Christ[1].

This is undifferentiated consciousness; consciousness cannot see itself.

It is our ‘original face before we were born[2].’

I dies to rise in Christ consciousness.

‘Father, into your hands I commit my spirit[3].’

The mantra falls away, unnoticed.

Silence.

 

 

 

 

[1] Galatians 2:19-20

[3] Luke 23:46
