O is for The Original Mind

Image result for painting of a child playing


A concept from Mastery. The Original Mind is the mind of a child, and reflects how children often see the world. With the Original Mind, the child sees the world as full of imaginative possibility. Everything is infused with wonder and flexibility. For Greene, as we grow older, we lose this original mind, seeing the world as more strict and conventional. The goal of Mastery is to try to regain a sense of this original mind, combing it with our knowledge of our craft.
