Motivational Monday – Pre-Thanksgiving Special: Removing Labels, Reading Labels (video)

As we move into Thanksgiving week, I thought it might be a good idea to not only read labels but also to remove labels. The reading of the labels refers to actual knowing the nutritional information with regard to the foods that we are about to down, down, down – stuff it down. Always good to know, isn’t it? Lest you wake up a pound or two heavier in the morning and you are mystified as to how it happened. “But, I only had 5 glasses of eggnog; 6 less than last year. What happened? I swear, I do gain so easily.” The removing of labels refers to the labels that we’ve plastered on ourselves and on others. It refers to how we describe ourselves and how we describe others. Remember that labels can and do pigeonhole us into limited ways of thinking, acting and being. Labels help us to justify and rationalize the limitations we imagine we have and further help us to hone our ‘victim’ act. Playing victim to food, people and circumstances. Remove thee labels before you get to the Thanksgiving Table. Let’s just say that this Thanksgiving you went into it wearing the label, “I am an awful cook.” Certainly you can see how this would not only limit your attempts at creating a delicious dish, but how it would give you an excuse to not bother. And others would see you in the same unfavorable light. Is that how you want to be seen? Thought of? Please take a moment to catch yourself labeling yourself and others. Take a moment to unplug the thought. Pretend you’re Lily Tomlin from Laugh In. For those who remember Laugh In, you’ll get it right away. For those who don’t – watch this funny video. Bottom line: When you hear ‘one ringy dingy’ unplug. Unplug your judgments, labels, descriptions, interpretations, analyses, opinions and evaluations. They only serve to create disharmony in you mind. Our labels do not define our true nature. At our deepest core, there are no labels that can come close to all that we are.

“As long as I am this or that, I am not all things.” ~ Meister Eckhart – (c. 1260 – c. 1327)
