I saw today a MAN in the subway with a sticker on his bag saying "Proud to be a Lesbian".

It instantly reminded me the "I" that believes he will be the one to get enlightened, the mind that tries to eliminate itself, the ego that is proud in "his" spiritual achievements. All these in their essence are a man who is proud to be a lesbian.

We should all carry this sticker as a reminder, always.

Let's review. A MAN is carrying a sticker that says "I'm proud to be a lesbian". He's clearly neither proud nor lesbian.

Pride in the name of

Maybe he's proud to BE. A lesbian.

There's nothing wrong with being proud to be. More folks should be proud to be ;-).

Sticker

A female friend long ago said she was a gay man in a woman's body.

As for the "Proud to Be," I saw a sticker on a car this morning on my way to the drivethrough for a cup of Java that said, "Because of God." With nothing more interesting to stare at, I took those words apart and re-thought them as "Am the Cause of God" and "Be the Cause of God" and "I AM because of God." And finally, "Be God".

Actually, I didn't know what the bumper sticket meant. Maybe it means do everything the love of God. Maybe it's a distant reference to Karma Yoga.

Anyway...words seem to stop meaning anything when you start tear them apart and start putting too much meaning into them.

Perhaps a bumper sticker might say:

"Be"
