When our mind is like a mountain, it is nothing but a heap of fixed beliefs and knowledge that does not evolve.
To have a mind like a valley, we need to pursue things with a sense of wonder, knowing that we don’t know and having a receptive frame of mind ready to absorb. An open mind enables critical thinking, diverse experiences, experimentation and iterative learning by connecting the dots.
Isaac Asimov echoed the same sentiment. He said,
“Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.”
