A while ago on nakedpastor I wrote a post entitled labels are the problem. It was interesting the reaction I got to that one.
Then someone forwarded me the link to this video of the astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson pretty much saying the same thing.
I’m convinced that labels are the problem. They are sometimes helpful but often get in the way. One of the things we have to learn is how to move beyond the categories that have kept us bound and stretch into the new territory of just being… freely, happily.
I know it can be done because I am doing it, as well as so many of you…
- Which label have you moved beyond?
- Which label are you still struggling with?
- Which label do you feel unwilling or afraid to abandon?
