Zen: Beginners Mind--
At Unity this morning one of the topics was "Beginners Mind". The concept: we are open to learning and growing when we are in, or adopt "BM". The opposite is perhaps "Expert Mind" where one thinks they have all the answers.
Motorcycling, to me, has invoked and continues to invoke the valued state of "Beginners Mind". Why is that? Because I am constantly learning and being challenged. This is a wonderful state and makes me feel alive and engaged.
At times in life I have been in the "Expert Mind" mode. The result, more often than not: being critical of others around me. In my career, after nearly 37 years, I have recently changed companies. There is joy there, and struggle, in again being in in "Beginner" mode: learning and having the license to say: "I don't know".
Hence ends today's shared Zen thought.
safe riding to all,
Oh and watch the construction on both inbound/outbound Hwy 59 between Hillcroft and Sugar Land: closed lanes, erratic cagers and construction vehicles randomly closing lanes and orange barrels blowing around....

not sure if it is zen, but it is just plain common sense. we should also know our limitations, most folks think they are better than they are.
