Ashin Tejaniya “Don’t Look Down on the Defilements – They Will Laugh at You." http://sayadawutejaniya.org/teachings/
In medicine, a well-recognized source of diagnostic error is "premature closure" - when a physician fails to listen to patient's full history because s/he "knows" the rest, having "heard it all before." It takes considerable effort to patiently retain an open, beginner's mind, particularly for 'experts'.
One definition of an expert is one who is incapable of further learning.
