There’s a sincere young man named Eric Kim who runs a fine street photography blog. Here is the link to it erickimphotography.com/blog/. He is a searcher (aren’t we all). I have watched him evolve both as a photographer and as a person.
Lately he has been talking about the importance of the buddhist concept of the “beginners mind”. Which stresses the importance of freeing oneself from ideas and concepts that don’t come from one’s own direct experience.
So much of who we are is the product of external conditioning. The “beginners mind” starts over.
