A Beginner’s Mind

Our ‘original mind’ includes everything within itself. It is always rich and sufficient within itself. You should not lose your self-sufficient state of mind. This doesn’t mean a closed mind, but actually an empty mind and a ready mind.

If your mind is empty, it is always ready for anything; it is open to everything.

In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities; in the expert’s mind there are few.
