I listen to Peter Coyote narrate “Zen Mind, Beginners Mind” on a regular basis. To me, the goal of meditation is to get the mind and it’s clutter as clear as possible, but it is like working on a canvas that has already been painted numerous times. It can never be as smoothly clean and white as when it is first gessoed, so what does it look like to achieve it’s most original state?
