Steady Wisdom: 108 Days of Changing My Thinking
Attachment and aversion belong to the mind but the mind does not belong to me. I am unchanging consciousness, free of all thought.
– Ashtavakra Samhita 15:5
The mind, being an ever-changing flow of thoughts such as attachment and aversion, is not real. Being unreal, it cannot belong to me anymore than a dream house can belong to me upon waking. Because I am the ever-present, unchanging witness of the unchanging mind, I am free of all thought. Thoughts come and go but I, consciousness, remain unaffected. OM.
