Imagine if we stopped labelling people and things…wow, our minds could be silent, as we would not be able to judge people or ourselves, based on another person’s mind labelling of us or others.
Labels are constructs of the individual mind and/or the collective mind, they serve only to allow a feeling of superiority for the individual ego and/or the collective ego.
Comparison and superiority are what the ego thrives on and is fuelled by labels.
When we are conscious, opinions of ourselves and others do not matter and nor do labels.
Often, once someone is labelled they become the label. There is little room for a person to change and they become treated for their ‘label’. There is always judgement and stigmas associated with the label. A chance for others to feel good that they aren’t in that category.
We are all unique human beings, and it is easy to tag us, far harder to accept our differences and be understanding and empathetic towards each other. It’s like sorting things into boxes, great for order and easy, but with people the complete opposite to what is needed, we aren’t just things to be separated by an arbitrary judgement of another human.
Labels on humans are far harder to remove once placed. Labels should be for clothes, not people.
