Shoshin, or Beginner's Mind, is a state of 'being'. Releasing everything you 'think' you know and opening up to being a Beginner. Often used in meditation to remind us to let go of any concepts of 'knowing how to meditate or breathe'. Instead, we simply drop everything the mind is holding on to; all the pre conceived notions of what meditation 'is', what breathing 'should' be and what it 'should' look like, drop all the 'shoulds' and just be. Breathe with wonder as if it is your first breath…and then sip in the next breath with full awareness and with Beginner's Mind. I am happy to be a Beginner in every aspect of my life, especially in my spiritual practice. Simplify your life by being a Beginner in as many ways as possible. Where can you be a Beginner in your life?
