Open Your Mind

The more you learn about your own mind, the more you learn about other people’s minds. You begin to appreciate other worlds, other people’s life situations. You are learning to extend your vision beyond what is just there in your immediate situation, on the spot, so your mind is opened that much more. And that reflects on your work with others. It makes you more skillful in deeds and also gives you more of a sense of warmth and compassion, so you become more accommodating of others.
