Because the flavor of fully-expressed, righteous opinion tastes WAY better than thoughtful silence…
… and because the axiom of “its more virtuous to be Hospitable than it is to be right” has been forgotten.
It’s our egos that cause us to attach; to ideas, to people, to opinions… ego causes attachment.
What would the practice of not having an opinion look like, even if you have one? What shape would taking the relevance away from our deeply-held opinions have?
The power of our opinions isn’t inherent to them, even though our egos lie to us, convincing us that those opinions hold an inherent power.
Contemplate while the fools pontificate.
(See y’all tomorrow)
