Maintaining Not Knowing Mind
As soon as we think we know something, then we become rigid and unresponsive. You know the famous phrase: 'For the beginner there are many possibilities, but for the expert there are few.' Maintaining a mind of 'not knowing' allows us to respond to situations with openness, freshness, and joy.
- Gerry Shishin Wick Roshi, "Give and Take: On Studying Koans"
