Labelling

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.

Measurement

If we do not compare and have a system to measure against others how does our ego know whether we are better or not?

Imagine what a world would be like if we did not measure ourselves against others. A society where we did not use a score, a measure, a test…sort humans out against each other like lining up sticks of different shapes or lengths.

Perhaps we do not have to imagine it, we could try it.
