I have a question for you. What would you do without labels? How would you see yourself? Where would you live? Who would you be? We tend to allow labels to define us. We identify ourselves with labels. We not only use our labels to identify us , but our world as well as the people living in it. Labels can help us feel important. They can also be used to isolate us. Based on our labels, they can determine whether or not we feel worthy or not. WORTHY OF WHAT!!!? Who decides? Black,white, fat , skinny, gay, straight, bi, rich , poor, smart, beautiful, ugly…. and on and on and on and on.. When does it end?!! ENOUGH!!
Freedom is your birthright. Slavery in any firm, regardless of how subtle, is unnatural. There was no mistake made with you. There is no amount of currency or precious metal that can even come close to determining your true value. You are part of the universe. You are one with it. Actually you are the universe experiencing itself. You realm of influence even goes beyond that point. You , as we each are, limitless and eternal. You are all powerful, infinite, omnipotent, omniscient spirit having a finite, human experience. Despite the appearance of aging, you are limited by time. Time as we know it is a human construct. In case you didn’t know, now you know. Since you have all of this going for you , why limit yourself to some damn label? Allow nothing “outside” of you to determine your self worth. Limitlessness transcends the concept of value. Value is linked to limitation. Once there is a dollar amount tied to something, limits are set around it’s value. You are invaluable.
We tend to accept the labels that have been given to us for better or worse. Part of your purpose here for being human is to first experience. After a certain number of experiences, ideally, you awaken to the fact that there is more to life than your experiences. It is intrinsic for us to search for meaning. We start to ask the age old question, “Why am I here ? What is my purpose?
Your purpose is whatever you choose it to be. Regardless, of where you find yourself in life, you don’t have to stay there. You have the power to choose. You have always had it. This entire world is an illusion. Consciousness is real. Whatever you think, however you perceive your world determines what you experience in it. You are the creator, therefore , choose labels that serve you. You don’t have to accept what others think of you, society or anything for that matter. Use labels that assist you with navigating through your world. Select ones that remind you how beautiful, unique and powerful you are. They are the only ones that count. Let’s teach our children how to choose the right labels to express themselves. Let’s create an international school curriculum that teaches our children truly worthy and limitless they are. Let us ingrain in their young minds that anything is possible and mean it. As parents, let us stop limiting our children because of our own fears and insecurities. Let’s prepare them for the revolution.. the revolution of the mind. Each of us is responsible for igniting our own personal revolution to free ourselves from the labels , habits and mindsets that don’t serve us. Mental slavery will always be far worse than physical slavery. Mental enslavement is passed on to future generations. It is up to us to break the shackles once and for all. How many more children have to commit suicide on Facebook Live for us to wake up? How many more of us will continue to exist in the private hell of depression and low self esteem. It is time to love ourselves as well as love one another. We are all connected to each other, our world, our universe and every other species in it. We are , literally, made of the substance of stars( google it 🙂 ). We are one, after all. Until next time…
