What are some popular label phrases?
Adam Jones quotes, ‘It is always easier to label than understand.’
Similarly, wisdom philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti quotes, ‘When I understand myself, I understand you. And out of that understanding comes love.’
The mind has a deep tendency to live in the division between me and the rest of the world.
For the ego to remain arrogant, it thrives on labeling people in terms of color, physical differences, economic disparity, gender, religion, nationalism, ethnicity, speciesism, etc.
The underlying purpose of labeling is to feel superior or inferior in one’s own eyes and feel happy or sad.
The ordinary person generally looks at the world via mental projections of labels that come from social conditioning.
The more we keep labeling others, we create a superficial division between me and other human beings, living organisms, soil, tree, plants, birds, mountains, rivers, etc.
All make us lead empathy-less, insensitive, lonely, cruel, violent, and loveless lives. And we can grossly see how an increase in meat consumption, global warming, climate crisis, and our deeply joyless lives are interlinked.
How to live a label-free joyful life?
Let’s not take any label too seriously. Instead, sharply see in reality the oneness we share with everything (from soil to the sky).
If we can keep the egoistic ‘me’ aside for a while and self-observe, we will realize that every human being born on earth is the same regarding our deepest desires and basic tendencies.
We all want to be rich, successful, and influential and work hard to get love, appreciation, recognition, and validation from family and society.
We all fall prey to lusts and greed, get caught in the never-ending games of excitement and boredom in relationships, and are internally torn apart by envy, jealousy, doubt, and possessiveness.
All our core decisions in life arise from immediate external influences, desires, insecurities, emotional attachments, and the fear of death of our loved ones and ourselves.
If we can sharply see the above ways of mind in daily living, it would be a revelation that we are different only at the circumference but internally very much the same.
Such inner self-knowledge and mental clarity will help us live a loving, compassionate, and joyful life.
Remember this deeply, the moment we stop labeling ourselves internally, the tendency to label others externally will lose its sheen.
Now, mentally healthy and beautiful living can become a blessing in reality.
We hope our handpicked label quotes, sayings, and images enrich your life.
