Ox Herding at Morgan's Bay 11

The Second Picture

In the second picture, the ox herder sees the tracks of the ox. The ox herder has not seen or found the ox, but he has discovered tracks ─ some going eastward, some westward, others going in many directions and then stopping suddenly. The ox (mind) is still undisciplined, and has a wandering, erratic nature. Seeing the tracks increases the ox herder's confidence that the ox exists, and that it can be found.
