Well, that isn't actually what it means... it isn't a positive thing... its basically a character flaw - according to dictionary.com
Opionated: obstinate or conceited with regard to the merit of one's own opinions;
I've been contemplating it and am happy that it has been brought to my attention that I guess I am this way and will try to be more humble. I know people like me better when I am more humble... But let me ask this... If someone doesn't believe in their own opinons what is that?
I think opinionated in a way may be against what I am trying to do with the Course in Miracles. Maybe it is all ego.....? but Not believing in your own opinions would be ..what..... lost? And I certainly am not lost. I have a very strong sense of self.. Is that opinionated? gosh I really have to figure this out... Well that is what this experiment is going to do.
Yesterdays lesson #8 was: "my mind is preoccupied with past thoughts" this is a period of self discovery for me. My world has already become more harmonious. I am happy to be - becoming more harmonious with the universe.
Todays lesson #9: "I see nothing as it is now"
Description: It says para phrasing here "though you can accept this intellectually it is unlikely it will mean anthing to you yet..the recognition that you do not understand it is part of the process.. 3 to 4 times today look around the room starting to what is close to you and say 'I do not understand this __telephone__as it is now. And move farther away from you.'
My interpretation: It is basically the same exercise from the beginning trying to drill in your head that we put our own meanings and expectations projected outward. And I need to continue practicing until I get this ingrained into my thinking.
