Beginner's Mind

Beginners Mind

At Choice Awareness we want you to remain open to new ideas and concepts. The wonder and awestruck quality emanating from this child's face is a state of openness we would like you to acquire.

This is a very nice place to begin.

Since we want you to start considering, thinking and reading innocently, we suggest you start with a beginner’s mind: temporarily drop your preconceived notions and ideas about what you select, choose and read.

Here are two examples:

  1. In the introduction to Zen Mind, Beginners Mind by Shunryu Suzuki, Baker Roshi, the American Zen Master, wrote:

    • “The mind of the beginner is empty, free of habits of the experts, ready to accept, to doubt, and open to all the possibilities…”

  2. In The Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics part one, “Nonsense”, chapter one,

    • Gary Zukav tells a compelling story of Albert Einstein and his theory of relativity. He suggests that Einstein’s breakthrough theory was possible because he started with a beginner’s mind.

You may not be Shunryu Suzuki or Albert Einstein, but they can be your inspiration and your mentors.

The information you’re about to consider can and will be the catalyst for new adventures and understanding in your life -- if you just let it happen!
