Checklist Dharma : Hopefully Not Just Another Dharma Article?

(Hopefully Not Just Another Dharma Article?)
When you read this,
is this yet "another Dharma article"?
Do you skim through impatiently, thinking,
"Know this already, seen this before, aha ya, tell me what I don't know..."
Or do you read with a beginner's mind,
both to discover something new
and to rediscover something that you have not practised adequately?
"In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities.
In the expert's mind there are few."
Don't have an expert's mind on the theoretical,
if you are not a real expert on the practical.
May you read Dharma
with a spiritual checklist attitude,
making mental checklists
of Dharma not practised well enough,
of Dharma not practised at all.
This is part of the practice of Right Effort.
Hope this was not just another Dharma article.
