Harmonizing opposites by going back to their source is the distinctive quality of the Zen attitude, the Middle Way: embracing contradictions, making a synthesis of them, achieving balance.

It costs so much to be a full human being that there are very few who have the enlightenment, or the courage, to pay the price … One has to abandon altogether the search for security, and reach out to the risk of living with both arms. One has to embrace the world like a lover, and yet demand no easy return of love. One has to accept pain as a condition of existence. One has to court doubt and darkness as the cost of knowing. One needs a will stubborn in conflict, but apt always to the total acceptance of every consequence of living and dying.

– Morris West

Bull and Ox by Osho

Posted: April 25, 2011 in Short Stories

When you want a bull to be yoked to a cart, what do you do? You castrate him – you destroy his sex energy. And have you seen the difference between a bull and an ox? What a difference! An ox is a poor phenomenon, a slave. A bull is a beauty; a bull is a glorious phenomenon, a great splendor. See a bull walking, how he walks like an emperor! Then see an ox pulling a cart.

The same has been done to human beings: the sex instinct has been curtailed, cut, crippled. A man does not exist as a bull now, he exists like the ox, and each man is pulling a thousand and one carts. Look, and you will find behind you a thousand and one carts, and you are yoked to them all.

Why can’t you yoke a bull? The bull is too powerful. If he sees a cow passing by, he will throw aside both you and the cart and he will go to the cow. He will not bother a bit about who you are and he will not listen to you. It will be impossible to control the bull.

Sex energy is life energy. It is uncontrollable.

…I’m increasingly convinced that the essence of the shift that humanity and the world are going through is essentially invisible – it is about profound changes of things like personal energy fields and feelings of love and gratitude for the earth and the rest of the universe…

When trapped emotions and Heart-Walls are released, people sometimes say it’s like they can finally feel again. They can give and receive love freely for the first time in a long time. In that state, very interesting and wonderful things can happen.
