Empty mind – beginner’s mind

If your mind is empty,

it is always ready for anything;

it is open to everything.

In the beginner’s mind

there are many possibilities;

In the expert’s mind

there are few.

– Suzuki Roshi

Paradoxically, sometimes less is more. It seems like more and more facts and more and more verification would bring more and more awakening and awareness. Instead, simply opening up and fully experiencing things directly brings more by bringing less in advance.

Now try explaining this to someone who hasn’t experienced it.
