In my last Vein of Gold workhop we discussed the importance of approaching our creativity, our relationships, and life in general with a beginners mind. When we become experts on our art, or on our friends and family, or on life, we become bored and boring. In reality, we cannot even know ourselves completely—we are each that much of a mystery. Creativity becomes a way of ongoing self discovery, of awareness in the moment, and of fully engaging the world with freshness. By approaching our relationships in the same way, by acknowledging that we cannot know everything about another, we are able to be fascinated anew. Try beginners mind not just with your creative endeavors but with your partner and see if you fall in love all over again. I would love to hear about your experiences with beginners mind.
