A ceaselessly loving soul, lost though they may seem, will eventually, by necessity, travel light.

Words and labels can be empowering places,
  to rest and reflect along our way.
But never contract to own permanently what we can borrow freely.
Do not create for yourself the illusion of ownership;
you merely create a new attachment. 
More baggage. More weight. Less freedom.
  We cannot in truth own any words or labels.
  We cannot in truth own people, places, things, or ideas. 
But all of these can come to own us, as they so often do,
following strictly our own terms.
