Hell ya, Dive in!

“As soon as there is a label, the ideas disappear and out comes label-worship and label-bashing, and instead of living by a theme of ideas, people begin dying for labels… and the last thing the world needs is another religion.” -Richard Bach

 

The world is getting categorical day by day, people can’t stand free-spiritedness. The worst that has happened to mankind is that now people are afraid of being just themselves even if they are not harming others because in the end either their image or esteem would be harmed by labels given by other people. It is a contagious and sustainable disease, both borne and propogated by humans.

The most courageous task is not being judgmental and accepting the ‘other’ as s/he is. As a result, the person ceases to be the ‘other’.

A true story.
