Quotes on Zen Mind (Beginner's Mind)

In Zen Buddhism, the concept of Shoshin (Japanese: 初心), or Beginner's Mind, illuminates the fact that in a beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in an expert's mind there are few. So keeping an original mind, beginners mind, or a "whitebelt mentality", you allow yourself to open the door of knowledge from anywhere and anyone. This is an attitude that UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has adhered to his entire life, and has allowed him to see the entire world as place where he can acquire knowledge. Endless doors to knowledge in every direction.
