It is an important development in one’s spiritual journey to live beyond labels. That is, you are comfortable without a label, nor are you threatened by them. I don’t mind if people call me a Christian. I also don’t mind if people call me an Atheist or an Agnostic. I’m comfortable without applying any of these, and I’m also not threatened by them. I am more than these labels. And Love sees past these.
Like this man getting dressed for the day: those tees are simply an external presentation that don’t represent him accurately. They are just a way to get through the day socially. Or maybe a way to get through the day comfortable with himself. It’s all okay.
Beneath how you identify yourself and how others identify you, there is you! Your spirituality is your own and no one has lived it before. You’re the first! You are an original!
How do you feel about labels? Do you still hold on to your identity as a believer or a Christian? Are you afraid to let this go? Or if you have, how did that feel? How do you feel now? How do others label you? How does this make you feel?
