Too comfusing. I'll try to understand one thing at a time. it can be at times. this is where the island of the tonal comes in. this is known as the personal inventory, and it can get pretty cluttered sometimes. thats probly the best way to deal with it; one thing at a time. About opinions, you are saying that people treat opinions like facts? im saying that people take themselves too seriously. that they take life too seriously. so seriously in fact that they would force an opinion to no end. even if they do manage to build a small gathering of followers, this never seems to be enough for some people. what these people do not realize, or even if they do, is that this is what you have been told. this or that is this because if this. everything has been described to us since the day were were born. for the most part, we have not even scratched the surface of what actually is. i feel that just because more than a handful of people believe in the same thing(or so they think), this does not make them any more or less righteous than the next. everyone has to have their own truths. too many people take things at face value and leave it at that. they do not bother to explore it any further, even if it is somewhat doubtful. i, personally, do not have room for doubt.
