Seeing misery in views and opinions, without adopting any, I found inner peace and freedom. One who is free does not hold to views or dispute opinions. For a sage there is no higher, lower, nor equal, no places in which the mind can stick. But those who grasp after views and opinions only wander about the world annoying people.

Aha! the source of your old signature Joel
Nice idea, used as an extreme to promote the value of an open mind I think it works well. As a literal goal I think it would lead to a global chaos!

Most of the great developments in the world have come from the seed of opinion.

Einstein's work is all based on theory (opinion)

Someone was once of the opinion that the wheel could be a useful thing.

MA are the physical manifestation of opinions on the best way to fight

The list goes on. If we all floated about not giving a monkeys one way or the other, It would be like living in a cheech and chong movie!

Of course it was someones opinion that the atom bomb was a good idea.....

Einstein, and other scientists, have written some interesting things about their work that are out-and-out spiritual. I don't have anything handy...probably make a better seperate thread.

Anyway, it doesn't say don't think, or have ideas, and it doesn't negate the physical/material aspect of fruition of ideas. It is referring to the 'inner' landscape...of being attached.

I'm afraid I don't know what a side-kick is (I'm a foreigner, you know), but I must say I am thinking of joining the harlan fan-club.

Has anybody thought about the fact that this quote is only a person's opinion?
