Message from Henry: Out of the Woods

February 27, 2018

Cherish your errors. They mulch your humanity.

There’s a British saying: you’re not out of the woods just yet.

Meaning: you’re not yet fully free of whatever trouble you may be dealing with.

This practice we follow at Mountain Cloud can get us “out of the woods” in a thorough kind of way.

What then? Then we may see there’s really no point in being out of the woods. No need! Then it’s no bother at all to us whether we are in or out of the woods.

As Bodhidharma said, when we reach the other shore we realize there never was another shore.

Paradoxical? Only to the thinking mind.

Cherish your errors. They mulch your humanity.
