Repeating Labels

Label: a classifying phrase or name applied to a person or thing, especially one that is inaccurate or restrictive.

We label ourselves as this or that,
placing a nameplate on our prison door.

I became a Buddhist accidentally (it’s long story) and acquired that label, but soon discovered that people are people, however they dress themselves up.

At the esoteric level, all paths come to the same conclusion beyond scripture – that we are not of the body or mind, but pure consciousness itself.

Labels are for the exoteric, who cling to words and stories.
