How having new hair reminded me of one of Buddha’s greatest teachings!
This last week I worked on a TV show and they dyed my hair brown and chopped it off. I know this is going to sound really silly but this kinda shocked me and I even had nightmares about the experience….hahaha. Even I, found this to be a little ridiculous so I started to question these emotions I was having surrounding my hair.
I had been blonde for 13 years and without knowing it, I identified myself as a blonde. I thought being blonde made me more beautiful. It was my identification with the hair color that caused a form of pain and suffering.
This was a great reminder of one of Buddha’s great teaching about identifying and grasping. We must try our best to be conscious and not identify ourselves with anything. When we grasp at things and make them part of our identity, we loose ourselves because we are no longer connecting to our higher self/ soul.
