Give up defining yourself - to yourself or to others.
You won’t die. You will come to life.
And don’t be concerned with how others define you.
When they define you, they are limiting themselves,
so it’s their problem.
~~Eckhart Tolle~~

  3. defining ourselves is the very nature of us. may be we don't do it in terms of vocabulary, but we do inside. i think this is the reason, we can't be unselfish in the true sense. in every way - emotionally, philanthropically, religiously we only govern by our own definitions.

  4. This post shows the key to a balanced, conscious life.
    The ego concerns itself with interpretations and definitions.
    For that is all the ego is.
    Behind ego, lies the wholeness of creation.
    Beyond all words, beyond all definition.

    Great post, Surjit.

  5. You are right Shubhajit when you say that ...'defining ourselves is the very nature of us...'But we can overcome this feeling by being 'aware' to the reality/truth.

  6. Yes, you are right The Crow saying ..'Behind ego, lies the wholeness of creation.
    Beyond all words, beyond all definition....'
    It is Ego which creates duality and just by being 'BE WHO YOU ARE' every thing becomes clear.
    Thanks my friend for sharing your wisdom.
    God bless.
