Lions Roar : September 2015
SHAMBHALA SUN SEPTEMBER 2015 59 44. Catching. Having become oriented to the nature of the spiritual work to be done, here we must begin to truly do it. Conditioned by eons of karmic habit, the work can be painful and slow. We see just how much of a mess our minds are, how quickly and inevitably we respond from grasping and aversion— and perhaps we even see no change at all. This is a period of excruciation and great effort, the work of lifetimes. Chögyam Trungpa’s Comment: Seeing a glimpse of the ox, you find that generosity and discipline are not enough in dealing with your projec- tions, because you have yet to transcend aggression com- pletely. You have to acknowledge the precision of skillful means and the simplicity of seeing things as they are, as connected to fully developed compassion. The subju- gation of aggression cannot be exercised in a dualistic framework—complete commitment to the compassionate path of the bodhisattva is required, which is the further development of patience and energy.
