Buddhists sometimes speak of the ‘beginner’s mind’ – that which assumes nothing and therefore is open to everything. A spiritual psychologist might call this the ‘inner child’, as it is innocent, curious, unfixed and always learning.
It does not get stuck on it being one way or another. There is openness to the unknown with curiosity instead.
Imagine if you could recapture ‘your unknowingness’ in regards to how to move beyond loss. Being open to this time in your life, possibly being the beginning of new and wonderful things about to happen for you.
So often we get stuck in the ‘this is how you do, this or that’, because that is the way we have done it for centuries.
Though, remember when we go back to when we did not know how to do this or that, we were open to possibilities.
And the beautiful thing is that life gets much more energising and interesting when you are open and don’t hold expectations about what will be.
Or what should be!
