Illusory Advice: Opinions

"Most people have times when they are opinionated and self-important, and recognising this is half way to letting such things go. In ordinary society it seems to be generally regarded that having opinions is a sign of maturity. We would regard the openness to admit ‘not knowing’ and a willingness to be challenged as greater signs of maturity. Once you realise that opinions are empty then self-importance becomes irrelevant."
