A Beginners Mind

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


In the beginner’s mind there is no thought, ‘I have attained something.’ All self-centered thoughts limit our vast mind.


When we have no thought of achievement, no thought of self, we are true beginners. We can really learn something.”
