“[It’s] important to get away from definitions, labels, descriptions, interpretations, evaluations, analyses, and judgment, for all of these create the turbulence of our internal dialogue.” — Deepak Chopra
“As long as I am this or that, I am not all things.” — Meister Eckhart
Are you aware of how you describe yourself to yourself and others? Remember that when we describe ourselves a certain way, that label can pigeonhole us into limited patterns of thinking and acting. It also may be a way we justify our own limitations and keep playing the victim.
When you catch yourself labelling yourself, take just a moment to consciously dissolve that thought. Experience the spaciousness that exists when you’ve let the label go. Feel your potential to be and do more.
The different roles we play in our lives are just roles. They do not define our essential nature. At the deepest levels of our being, no words can contain who we are.
“With every breath, the possibility of a new aspect of self arises.” — Wayne Muller
