Joseph P. Kauffman

 "We cannot learn if we are stuck in our mind’s conditioned way of thinking. We must be open to discovering the Truth, whatever it may turn out to be. This requires a state of openness, curiosity, and sincerity, a state of pure awareness, a state of observing reality without jumping to conclusions about what reality is.

This state of direct experience is known in Zen as “beginner’s mind,” and it is essential to embody this state when we want to understand our experience."
