Updating The Inner Drive

I’ve decided to stop fighting where I am. I’ve decided to acknowledge and pursue what is interesting to me now without muddling it with my history or anticipation of the future. To be childlike and have beginners mind.

In the beginners mind there are many possibilities, but in the experts mind there are few.” – Shunryu Suzuki, Zen Mind, Beginners Mind

I want to be open and excited and flowing instead of this nurturing this creeping stiffening and rigidity of heart, body and mind. Fear. Clinging to too much safety and certainty steals vibrancy and life force, but not clinging a little distracts my primitive brain to disturbance. Instinct and intellect can be in harmony, but it takes experience and technique. The martial artist constantly walks the same line. A transferable skill.

So now a new journey, but taking the same road of this lifetime.
