Guided by Mind, not opinions

Everywhere we turn we’re surrounded by a constant barrage of human opinions. Sometimes it seems that these opinions play an exaggerated role in influencing life, whether in regard to business, education, politics, or our personal lives. 

Recently I realized the need to correct a tendency to indulge human opinions, which can often mask destructive or unproductive criticism of others. I was trained as an architect, so I have often justified critical thoughts on my part as being the result of my education, which taught me to judge whether something meets the standards of good design. Other times I have justified an opinion of mine as “good taste.” While adhering to high standards of thought and conduct is desirable, after years of being troubled by this critical behavior, I finally concluded that it was a bad habit, and not to be indulged.
