There is a closed mind which automatically rejects new information and has prejudices. When the mind is closed, so is the heart. Then there is the Open Mind. That doesn’t mean automatic acceptance or approval of incoming information; it’s just the state of being Open. An open mind is just Open. It’s listening. It’s not making a decision. It’s just Open. Neutral. We might have an opinion later on, but for now, we are just Open and allowing new information to enter us. This is the heart at work. This is where learning and growth occur.
