My commentary in blue.

5.Taming the Bull

The whip and rope are necessary,
Else he might stray off down some dusty road.
Being well trained, he becomes naturally gentle.
Then, unfettered, he obeys his master.
.
It takes training, hard work, and dedication.  There are no shortcuts, just the bull and his master. Soon the bull understands what the master is saying, and the master understands the bull. The master has feelings of them being one, but he still needs the bull.

Original Comment: When one thought arises, another thought follows. When the first thought springs from enlightenment, all subsequent thoughts are true. Through delusion, one makes everything untrue. Delusion is not caused by objectivity; it is the result of subjectivity. Hold the nose-ring tight and do not allow even a doubt.
