Be willing to be a beginner
every single morning.

~Meister Eckhart

“The old teachers thought that not to know is to step into the world without repeating yourself.  It is to forget the prejudices and comparisons that say, I’m better than you, I’m worse than you, I’m good at this, I’m bad at that.  If you practice ‘don’t know’ mind for long enough, perhaps you can learn how to be good at anything.”  John Tarrant, bring me the rhinoceros: and other koans that will save your life.
