Keeping an Open Mind

Published on

Keeping an open mind is like keeping a door open, anything can drift in, good stuff, bad stuff, rubbish, joy…

The difficulty is not in opening the mind, as much as what you do with the stuff that enters. We have a tendency to immediately judge, and sometimes to pre-judge with expectations; we place a requirement on what comes in and then accept or reject it depending on how it fits with what we want or expect.

It’s mostly good to keep an open mind, but only if we don’t edit or censor what comes in, because that defeats the object of the exercise.
