A New Day with Beginners Mind

It’s your life ~ Your perceptions, your belief systems, your interpretations. Periodically they must be updated when they no longer serve you and this ever-changing world.

How to update them? Choose Beginners Mind to guide you with fresh eyes.

This mental training aka mental flossing is imperative to live a life of ~
•Courageous kindness
•Deep and engaged compassion
•Flexible resiliency
•Radiant love.

May these states embody you…now.

Beginning Again

It’s a new day. It’s another day. It is a day you can begin again.
How can you relish more in this day than any other day of your life?

Listen as ordinary sounds transform into a symphony

A Mindfulness Practice for Today

•Living in Beginners Mind go to your favorite café when it’s noisy
•Follow your body’s lead on where to sit
•Order your favorites
•Waiting…relax and deepen into the spaciousness where judgements, resentments and expectations do not live
•Breathe into the sounds around you

*Let the sounds organize themselves into a symphony
•Listen for the melody.  The rhythmic beat.  The harmonics.
•Listen as you would to Yo-Yo Ma, Keith Jarrett or Chick Correa
•Let yourself be inspired by the transformation
•What is alive in you?

Dear Begin Againers~

Dear Begin Againers,

What have you separated yourself from to be connected now?

Deep bow to the open hand…

Today

We begin again
With Beginners Mind:
Curious, fresh eyes, new breath.

It’s the willingness to go the mysterious distance
It’s the willingness to trust
It’s the freedom we give ourselves
Again
And again.

Beginners Mind ~ the wonderment of living…

Mmmm….wonder what will happen next?!
