Beginner’s Mind Is Starting Over
Yesterday, we began discussing starting over – how recognizing that every moment REALLY IS starting over . . . whether or not we recognize it as such . . . for one simple reason: the past is OVER!
That means we have a blank slate in this and every new moment to CREATE the present . . . and to IMPACT the future.
F. Scott’s Fitzgerald (whose story “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” is winning huge critical acclaim) said, “Vitality shows in not only the ability to persist, but the ability to start over.”
The benefit of DEVELOPING A ROUTINE PRACTICE OF STARTING OVER is that we are unencumbered by beliefs or limitations from the past. Starting over means fresh, new, clean, open, willing and present.
Where in your life can you see tremendous benefit for starting over . . . for adopting what in Zen studies is called BEGINNER’S MIND?
