I sunk Beginner's Mind

I prefer zen master violence and mind games. Telling yourself "okay I'm going beginner's mind now" or convincing yourself that you've done anything to escape assumptions is very dangerous. "my mind seems very still right now." All that language can be very useful for diagnostic and methodological purposes, but I worry that folks are often kidding ... Magis viderethemselves about the degree to which they are actually "being here now." reminds me, I saw a copy of "be here now" next to a copy of Bill O'Reilly on a bookshelf recently. scary how easy it is for cali-zen smugness and right-wing entitlement to co-exist
