Labels limit us

"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be."
-- Lao Tzu




How do you label yourself? How do you label others?
Be aware that any label is limiting. Labels stick us in a box where there's no room to move. Today, experience how it feels to let go of the labels to rest in 'I am.' Feel the freedom, the spaciousness, the infinite potential of simply being.


"As long as I am this or that, I am not all things."

Or equally you could say that labels just give a general indication what's 'inside the box'.

If you use a label to try to constrain someone else you won't succeed - an individual is what she/he is and a label doesn't alter that.  Why ARE folk so afraid of being labelled then?

If you attach a label on yourself then you'll likely have more success if that's your plan.  Perhaps it makes you believe you're more than you truly are though?
