Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking

Day 26

The succession of sufferings pertaining to the body, senses and intellect is other than myself and does not belong to me because it is unreal like a dream beheld by a dreamer. I am changeless.
-Upadesha Sahasri 10: 5 (Metrical)
Meditation

The body and mind are a succession of temporary forms that arise in me, pure being, like a series of images arising from the mind of a dreamer. Because the body and mind come and go, they cannot be real. Because I am changeless existence, ever-present as the essence of everything, I am real. Therefore I cannot be the body and mind. Since suffering pertains to the body and mind alone, I am free of all suffering.
