The Zen Mind

In the beginners mind there are many possibilities, but in the experts there are few.Zen Master Shunryu Suzuki

the beginner’s mind

Such a mind is childlike. Not childish, but one that sees things anew, doesn’t discount anything, has few regrets and worries not about the future. It lives fully in each moment.


Unencumbered such a mind is free to be creative and truly resourceful. This mind seeks possibilities, expresses emotions, resents not and exudes joy. What kind of mind do you have? Or does your mind have you?

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM here, I AM now.
