BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, March 4th, 2019 by Deepak Chopra in THE WAY OF THE WIZARD

“In mortal life what limits us first and last are names, labels, and definitions. Having a name is useful – it lets you know which birth certificate is yours – but it quickly turns into a limitation. Your name is a label. It defines you as having been born and such and such a time and place to a certain set of parents.

After a few years your name defines you as going to such and such a school, then on to such and such a profession. By the time you are thirty, your identity is hemmed in by a box of words. The walls of the box might consist of the following, “Catholic tax lawyer, educated at Cornell, married with three children and a mortgage.” These facts may not be inaccurate, but they are misleading. They trap an unconditioned spirit inside conditions. Many of these limitations seem to pertain to YOU when in fact they only pertain to your body – and you are FAR MORE than your body.”

Deepak Chopra, in “The Way of the Wizard”
