I read the MOST EYE OPENING a while back... It could have been Musashis book of five rings, but im not sure... but it compared getting your black belt to loosing a cow...

Holy COW! ...I think Musashi lived just a tad before belt grades were incorporated.

I've finished the thought:

RokuDan - You teach the cow.
NanaDan - You promote the cow.
HachiDan - The cow opens it's own dojo.
KuDan - You never see the cow anymore.
JuDan - You have a feeling that you are missing something...

(still didn't understand any of it, though)

No, at least I haven't. The closest story I ever heard to what you describe is that Musashi recomended using one kiai over and above any others: "COWABUNGA!"
Just when you think something is foolproof, they come out with a new and improved type of fool.

There is a Zen text that likens enlightenment to finding a bull and riding the Bull. In one Aikido school I know of they call Sho-Dan losing the Bull then as you progress you seek the Bull then find the Bull then ride the bull Home then realize that you and the Bull are one and you become enlightened, they refer to that as master level. So by that analogy ho-Dan is the beginning of a journey or a search with the end result hopefully being mastery or enlightenment.
