When I'm involved in views and opinions, especially ones I attach to as True, there is implicit an assumption that somehow they migrate beyond my skull, and are carried by other people. When I feel the need to convince another person of the rightness of a view, there is a necessary confusion at play about where that view abides. That view, its feeling, its energy, is entirely within this body and mind. It is entirely my burden. If I am angry at someone, that anger is entirely my own experience, especially if the object of my anger is unaware of my state ....which is very common..
This is all pretty obvious, but of course it often isn't lived that way... If I know that every view, every perception, every feeling about life, about other people, without exception, is happening only within this body and mind, and that the only one carrying this thing is me... how can it be sustained? It can't. Views will come up in response to conditions, the brain views, but they will not be carried more than one step if there is no confusion about where they abide.
I don't think a single big insight into this ends the tendency to confuse.... there has to be repeated variations of that insight, combined with a slow wearing down... a slow sinking-in, and a long term fatigue with refuge in view.... and a kind of forgetting.. into simple sense. Maybe it's just getting old.
just viewing. thanks
