"In Zen Buddhism, there's a concept called 'zen mind,' or beginner's mind.' They say that the mind should be like an empty rice bowl.
If it's already full, then the universe can't fill it.
If it's empty, it has room to receive.
This means that when we think we have things figured out, we're not teachable. Genuine insight can't dawn on a mind that's not open to receive it.
Surrender is a process of emptying the mind."
