"Always be a beginner." - Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind
I am re-reading this book, I read it many years ago and then Rick listened to the audio version a couple of weeks ago.....and well, I couldn't stand Rick being more Zen than me......ha,ha!
I love that phrase, "always be a beginner." Think about it, remember what it is like to be a beginner, to just be starting something........if you are a beginner, and you are learning something for the first time, think about the excitement, the energy, the exhilaration of trying something new......the nervousness.
You could be beginning a new career, a new hobby, a new friendship, a new love affair.......but remember how it all feels at the beginning........as a beginner, everything is fresh, nothing is taken for granted, everything is new.
As a beginner, we learn and everything seems boundless. As a beginner, our mind is open, there are possibilities, we try harder, we want to grasp it all! As a beginner, we want to share......
As a beginner, the world around us seems different, we see things in a different light, a different way.
As a beginner, we question, we are curious, we want to know.......as a beginner, we do not judge, we are learning......there is nothing to judge.
As a beginner, you leave nothing to chance, all bases are covered, every t is crossed and every i is dotted.
There is no boredom, no bias, no ego.......all is new. "Always be a beginner"
Good night, Sweet dreams
