Your Original Nature is Label-less

We usually refer to ourselves by two names: the name our parents gave us and ‘I’ or ‘me.’ What is almost always overlooked is that ‘your name’ is not unique to you; others also were given that name by their parents. And ‘I’ and ‘me’ are even more ubiquitous, as they are universally used by every human being to refer to themselves.

So you cannot actually BE any of these labels. Which label IS you? None. Your original nature is label-less… it knows nothing of labels. Just like the sun does not know itself as ‘the sun.’ It doesn’t ‘know’ itself as anything… yet continues to shine brightly. If the sun were called, ‘darkness,’ would it shine any less brightly?
