“I am going to teach you all something” and continued...“Tell me who is bound to whom? Is the cow bound to this man or the man is bound to the cow?"
The disciples said without hesitation, “Of course the cow is bound to the man! The man is the master. He is holding the rope. The cow has to follow him wherever he goes. The man is the master and the cow is the slave.”
“Now watch this”, said the master and took a pair of scissors from his bag and cut the rope.
The cow ran away from the master, and the man ran after his cow.
“Look, what is happening”, said the master.
“Do you see who the Master is? The cow is not at all interested in this man. The cow in fact, is trying to escape from this man.”
So is the case with our MIND. All the non-sense that we carry inside is not really interested in us.
WE ARE INTERESTED IN IT! Like the owner of the cow, we believe we have to hold onto it somehow or the other in order to survive.
All the drama, trauma, pain, vengeance, depressions, rejections, dejections, judgements, opinions, expectations, anger, sadness, guilt, regret, resentment, hurt, wounds, misery, suffering, tears, helplessness and what not! We are going crazy trying to keep it all together under our control. The moment we lose interest in all the garbage filled in our head, and the moment we understand the futility of it, it will all start to disappear. Like the cow, it will escape and disappear.
