ZEN MIND, BEGINNERS MIND

“Like eager students,
not wanting or rejecting;
– willingness to learn!

Nothing do I know,
not a clue what’s going on;
– the beginners mind!

Beyond right and wrong,
beyond doctrine or theory;
– it is what it is!

State of no clinging,
attachment or aversion;
– just being like this!

If it rains, it rains,
If it doesn’t, it doesn’t;
– right view is no view!”
