In order to learn, we have to first be willing to learn. Be open and willing to new knowledge. A known lesson is food for the ego at the expense of the soul. Open your mind and approach each lesson with curiosity rather than assumptions. In this MindBodyGreen post, I share my experiences as a nascent yogi, approaching the mat with a beginner’s mind.

This is such an important and inspirational message.
One of my most important spiritual texts is Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind by Shunryu Suzuki. Your post resonates with his text.
Thanks for the great post.
I read that book many moons ago. Thanks for the reminder to pick it up again:)
It looks like more than one of us finds Suzuki’s book on the beginner’s mind. I have enjoyed books by Pema Chodron, When Things Fall Apart is one I recommend as well, one that is in keeping with your blog site here. Robert
Thanks! I’ll be sure to check it out:)
