‘A’ is both a letter of the alphabet and a word. ‘I’ is both a letter and a word. Why is no one talking about how to free ourselves from the tyranny of ‘A’? It’s because no one confuses themselves as being this. There’s no identity built up around the word ‘A’. If there were an identity built around it, there would be countless retreats, self-help books and counselors to help us improve our poor definition of an ‘A’. How identifying with a word/idea creates so many unnecessary issues!
But then there’d be those who would question this, “What the hell is an ‘A’ anyways? Why does it need improving?” They’d discover it’s just a word, an idea. In which case it would lose it’s meaning and relevance.
Just as you understand you aren’t an ‘A’, do you also understand that you’re not an ‘I’?
