This is our work. Just to be here, ready to meet whatever is next without expectation or prejudice or preconceptions. Just ‘What is it? What is this, I wonder?’
So please, cultivate your beginner’s mind. Be willing not to be an expert. Be willing not to know. Not knowing is nearest. Not knowing is most intimate.

The recently released Seeds for a Boundless Life is now available at the Zen Center bookstores, or can be ordered online (visit Shambhala Publications).
