Opinion as Worthless

Opinion, ultimately, is quite worthless. Real-world experience, on the other hand, has worth in "gold," some say, although this may also be an exaggeration.

Here's the other side: In a letter my father wrote to me in my 30s, when I had said I had finally come to realize the importance of experience, he noted that "experience does not help either." He seemed to be saying that there was some other source of guidance or that we had no such guidance.

Personal commitment and belief seem to come into the picture. Unless we commit something of ourselves, something that's of value to us, we're making no real transformations of anything.

Mental transformation ultimately flows from real-world interaction in the physical world.

So for example, it's better to go to a place and live there than to keep having opinions about it.

Once you commit your body, your opinions might change!
