One of the most liberating activities that we can do for ourselves is refuse to define; no longer assign an absolute meaning to people, places and things. Assign no absolutes to anything.
Why? We are not all that well informed about much of the stuff (people, places and things) that we define. Sure, we think that we are, but our view is very, very, very limited (imagine 1,000 verys before the word limited). Our worldview is based on our own experiences and our past. Our knowledge is limited as well. And, for those of you that have been on the path of self-empowerment, you do know that we have a tendency to judge and project. All of these elements dramatically affect our thinking and how we define the world around us.
When you refuse to define, it opens your mind to opportunities, to understanding and to peace. Possibilities start emerging instead of limitations, dread and fear. Creativity and imagination move into action; you can see what you were unable to before because you were making the stuff fit your small worldview.
The world is full of infinite possibilities and rich with opportunities when you decide to no longer define. It gives rise to a new and improved perspective and attitude. Growth and progress is the result. After all, growth and progress happen because we are willing to see something new, something that we did not see before.
Liberate yourself and open your mind. Refuse to define and see something new, something that elevates you.
