names aplenty
we wear believing
they are more than
labels in time..
these are attachments
to our embodied "I"
which become our
identity in this 
moment and the next..
a vast multiplicity
of names we claim
dawn til dark til dawn..
suffering reigns until
our real "I" 
the limitless one
stands and reveals

G.I. Gurdjieff
“Man has no individual i. But there are, instead, hundreds and thousands of separate small "i"s, very often entirely unknown to one another, never coming into contact, or, on the contrary, hostile to each other, mutually exclusive and incompatible.
Each minute, each moment, man is saying or thinking, "i". And each time his i is different. just now it was a thought, now it is a desire, now a sensation, now another thought, and so on, endlessly. Man is a plurality. Man's name is legion.”
