-Yes, Master Gotama, he does teach us how to develop our faculties
-How does he do... continue...

With horns you could dream you were a matador, waving your red cape and trying to expose everyone's horns, ready to pierce them in the side when you think they have charged at you.

So then you have both horns and a red cape that you can't let go of.

We can know enlightenment plenty of times, over and over again. We can be very forgetful that way. :-)

Sometimes I'm like a man who keeps forgetting where his feet are. Oh! There they are! :-D

vertical line He who perceives kensho as kensho, satori as satori, a part as a part,
the One as the One, etc...

Having perceived kensho as kensho, satori as satori, a part as a part, the One as the One, ect...,

he conceives himself as kensho, himself as satori, himself as the part, himself as the One, ect...,

he conceives kensho to be his, satori to be his, the part to be his, the One to be his,

he delights in kensho, he delights in satori, he delights in the part, he delights in the One, etc... Why is that?
Because he has not fully understood it.
