I would rather not have an opinion. Seems burdensome, and there's always another defensible position. That is really what opinions are--aren't they? A defensible position? I will assert X, someone else can assert "not X" --inevitably someone more evolved will come along and point out "hey, Y!"
I prefer choices. One of my very favorite quotes is "To know and not to do, is truly not to know." Opinions seem to stem from reflection, even--dare I say it--idleness.
When I worked at the barbeque joint, we would spend the quiet times playing "the hypothetical game." It is a simple game to learn, but hard to master. A hypothetical situation is presented: "If person A came in and did event X to person B--what would you do?" The crippled imagination answers in the most reasoned and direct way possible. That person thinks that they are deciding in advance what to do...nothing could be further from the truth. We're playing a game!
The liberated mind will add to the creation that the hypothetical structures: "It depends...is person A wearing a hat? Does person B sing during the episode?" See? there is a co-creation happening. Instead of necking the discussion down to a point, we're broadening the field of possibilities. The way to win in the hypothetical is the same as thriving in the tangible: Expand that consciousness, include the potentials you've not considered.
That game, the opinions, maybe they're our freewill twitching because we have stunted the choices. Maybe we've let the deception of the world teach us instead of our hearts healing that deception. We may think, "I must work or I will die." BUT until we've tried both working and not working and find out that we survive BOTH--well we're only operating on the opinion, the idle thought.
"If person A comes in and does X to person B..." We don't know what will happen in any particular now. So making those decisions in advance seems like we're hobbling ourselves. I may hug person A or whack them with a stick, who knows?
AND what is the opportunity cost of talking about, giving our energy to a hypothetical? Which reality are we ignoring in favor of the discussion?
Have you ever seen a neighborhood that has a strong authoritarian home owners association? Beige. Tan. All colors inoffensive and within the hump of the statistical bell curve. Everyone playing for the resale, no joy allowed.
The whole thing of value judgements is similar to opinions, better to have less--IN MY OPINION!! LMAO.
