Blue Cliff Record Case 12: Three Pounds of Flax

April 23, 2015

Episode Description: In this personal discussion of Blue Cliff Record case 12, Henry talks about death, the eternality of time and the limits of rationality. We learn that failure and loss are necessary and that only through the process of non-rational experience can true opening occur. Henry shares two loving and poignant poems that he wrote for his father’s funeral.
