Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking

DAY 19

I am ever-pure.  For me there is no body, mind or senses; there is no world but there is no nothingness.  I have no reason to despair. 
– Ashtavakra Samhita 20:1

There is no world insofar as it is an illusion.  But does that mean there is only nothingness?  No, because the body, mind and senses are a plain fact of my everyday experience—their existence, although illusory, cannot be denied.  I am their very essence, existence itself.  The body, mind and senses are merely waves in the limitless ocean of myself.  Just as water is untainted by waves, I am untainted by the body, mind and senses:  I am ever-pure.  Because I cannot be touched by the body, mind and senses, there is no reason to despair. OM.
