Be a Tiger in the Mountains
Once its heart is grasped, you are like a dragon gaining the water, like a tiger taking to the mountains.
—from Fukanzazengi (Dogen)
Dharma Theme: In the Wild – Mountain Koans & Poems
Eventually you come to a place where you can’t go on and you can’t go back. You have arrived at the base of cliffs; you can’t scale them, you can’t get around them, and there’s no handy tunnel through them. It’s a daunting place—that’s the point of it. And when you arrive here your life and your journey can become your own.
