A Cornucopia of Expressions
Divine love/divine truth removes the labels, which we attach to others and ourselves, from our thoughts, thus our perceptions. All that remains is the identifier that we are the children of the Most High in each one’s own unique appearance and expression.
Labels attach certain attributes to another person or group of people. There are a multitude of labels that humankind has created over time to classify and identify human beings. Our minds like to generalize and categorize aspects of our lives, especially people. So, this labeling is a deeply embedded aspect of our thought processes.
At first glance, labels seems handy and efficient because a label can seemingly tell is a lot about someone … but there in lies the problem and the lies. Labels construe images of others based on varying incomplete and/or erroneous set of attributes. Thus, seeing someone through a label often creates inaccurate assumptions about who they are, which leads to treating them differently than we otherwise would. It’s very easy for a label to become a tool of judging another instead of seeing their unique individuality. There are similarities between people, of course, but seeing similarities and seeing in labels is very different. Similarities are perceptions that come from understanding and limited to the similarity. Labels can and often carry a whole host of attributes that may or may not be applicable to a certain individual. Labels are removed not in a word itself, as the politically correct movement as attempted to do in certain areas, but from our very thoughts, for our thoughts are the genesis to what is manifested in our reality. And this work of reframing how we see others is the result of divine love/truth expanding within us.
In labels, we see in images (the unreal), and in part. In divine love/truth, we see in realness and in fullness, for we are looking for and at the fullness of the soul of an individual, and not the thin and often erroneous image created by a label. Any one label can reflect different attributes for different people, thus they can be and often are very misleading to the true nature of any one person. But divine love/truth flushes out those perceptions that create faulty assumptions, separation, and judgments. In our mind’s need to classify, divine love/truth reframes our perceptions, so that our only “label” is someone as a child of our heavenly Father in his/her own uniqueness. It’s the only “label” we need. This leaves lots of exploration about whom that person truly is. Once the labels as we know them are removed from our perceptions (and there are many), we appreciate the distinctiveness and splendor of others that creates a harmonious connection.
Divine love/truth is a unifying energy. It creates harmony, not separation. Labels put someone in one group and us in another because we’re different, thus they create separation, not unity, in our thoughts, thus our words and actions. As we start to be transformed by divine love/truth, all that creates separation in our thoughts is removed and replaced with what creates harmony and peace, and this concept of labels is one of many.
Unique Expressions of Our Similarities
We are far more alike than different as human beings, and the differences are only in the expression of our similarities. For example, we all have the same emotions, which vary on a continuum of expression depending upon how our surroundings taught us how to express them. We are all unique, and we are all similar at the same time.
Not only are we are all similar, but also we are a part of each other. What I do effects you and it effects me, thus what I do to you I do to me, and what I do to me I do to you. For example, if I honor myself, then I will honor for you, for if I contain true honor in my soul, then it expresses itself all the time to all people. Likewise, if I honor you, then I also honor myself. Thus, when we “see” others, we are seeing varied expressions of ourselves. And here is a deeper truth; we see others through our present understanding or filters so that what we see in others reflects more of us than of them. This is why two people can see one person very differently. How we see someone is more about us than them.
Labels of Relative Truth
Differences created from labels are simply a perspective that we hold in our mind because of the label. Thus, labels are the progenitor of relative truths. A label of a group or type of person holds certain characteristics to us, which may and often does vary from someone else, thus it’s a relative truth. Further, if we see someone and attach a label to him or her thus all the attributes that label reflects to us, we’ve made our own relative truth about that person. It isn’t based in what is real, but what is unreal. So now we are acting and responding in what is unreal. Whenever we act on the unreal as real, we create a myriad of problems that causes division and not harmony.
The absolute/divine truth is that we are all our heavenly Father’s children and a unique expression of all that we have experienced. The relative truth comes from the labels that we each believe we are and others are, and thus live by. If we define ourselves by a label and the corresponding attributes, then we become the label. This dynamic is known as a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Creators of Self-fulfilling Prophecy
Labels create self-fulfilling prophecies, especially when impressed upon a young mind. When we label a child in a certain way, we are laying a framework upon their mind that shapes their thoughts about who they are and who they are not, what they can do and what they can not, how they are seen by others and how they are not. They take on a likeness of the labels we give them. Is that their true nature? Yes and no. They are fulfilling what they believe themselves to be, but that can change when they no longer let that label identify them. It’s only a relative truth, which is always changeable. A label is only true if an individual soul allows that particular imprint to define his nature. But it isn’t necessary who they truly are, but an identity that they have taken on. We believe it so we act and live upon it. But that doesn’t make it an absolute truth. A great gift to give another is to see them through divine love/truth, regardless of how they see themselves.
Divine love/truth removes labels from our lives and perspectives they create, and reframes us and others in the label of a child of God, which we all are, thus creating harmony and unity. We no longer see others through labels, which is seeing them through images, but we see them as unique individuals radiating their own individuality.
This world is drowning in labels, but divine love/truth totally reframes how we see others and creates an awareness of a cornucopia of variety that is beautiful among the children of the Most High.
