Hi, I am feeling handicapped by my own opinion of others and the world. It blocks me from forming outside connections / relationships or just lead a calm life or go after my ambitions. A simple example, I don't get why a lot of women focus a lot on dresses, make up, jewelleries etc to look beautiful. I believe people are naturally beautiful and a little enhancement would be fine. But sometimes dressing up is the main focus in somebody's life, I sense some discomfort in connecting with that person. I understand it is wrong of me and I don't know how to sidestep that feeling. Another example, if I found a person rude to another person, I won't find it easy to talk to them because I would not have been able to shake off the opinion that I had formed about the rude person. Hope am clear. This is somewhat like a brahmin avoiding to dine with a non vegetarian friend (just saying) or a person of different caste in those days. I don't have these kind of hang ups but am held back by my own opinions. I was talking about this to a friend of mine and she mentioned it is perfect to have good or bad opinions about others but why would it interfere in the way one communicates? I was trying to think along the lines of not forming any opinions at all and just see the person as they are in front of me. I would like to know from you if you operate with or without these thoughts?
