The courage of a master is measured by his or her willingness to surrender. This means surrendering to your teacher and to the demands of your discipline. …

Perhaps the best you can hope for on the master’s journey … is to cultivate the mind and heart of the beginning at every stage along the way. For the master, surrender means there are no experts. There are only learners.
