Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking
I am the limitless ocean of consciousness. In me the wind of the mind produces the diverse waves of the world. I remain unaffected.
-Ashtavakra Samhita 2:23
The world appears as thought-waves in the ocean of the mind. But the mind appears as a wave in me, the limitless ocean of consciousness. The mind comes, goes and changes but I, consciousness, remain unchanged. Therefore I am unaffected by the world.
