Hello my name is…uh…I forgot

Daily Dose of…Soul Scrubbing

Think about this and chew on it folks…

Who would you be if you shed all the labels you gave yourself? I don’t just mean the “negative” labels, but ALL of them. Your job, your hobbies, your family role, your social role, ALL OF EM’…

Ponder that. Then ponder it some more. Maybe sit your butt on the floor, light a candle, and then ponder it even more. You know… meditate and stuff. You might be surprised to find that underneath all of the labels is a shining and spacious soul full of possibility. You also might find it hard to detach from those self imposed “stamps” to see that beauty.

That’s what yoga does for me. It helps me to get out of my own way, ditch the sticky labels for 60, 90, 120 minutes and see the true self instead of seeking a label that fits JUST RIGHT. ‘Cause guess what dolls, none of them ever fit every part of you. There is no way they could with all those little bits of God roaming around inside.

  1. i completely agree. in meditation yesterday, we were encouraged to think to ourselves, “I am not my body.” They’re different words than you brought up, but the concept is the same. If our bodies dissipated, would we still be here?
