Talk 3 from the Original Love 4 Retreat, Mu Koan (Video)

December 4, 2020

This isn’t something we get, it’s something that happens to us and continues happening.

Henry explores the koan Mu in this third talk from the Original Love 4 Retreat. Henry begins with a monk’s account of what it’s like being awakened by the koan Mu. “… I was awakened into a world in which there was no me… the one thing I am sure of…. the functioning of the heart in which I was born came into play in its purest form.”

Koans are intended not for their own sake but to open something in us, and keep it opening. Any idea that I”ll put a check in the box and be done with it – is wrong. This isn’t something we get, it’s something that happens to us and continues happening. All it can be is the most profound unfolding of the human heart.
