Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking
In truth there are no scriptures, no gods, no religious practices; there are no worlds; there are no paths to heaven or rebirth; there are no stages of life, no caste, no lineage. There is only me, the highest reality.
-Avadhuta Gita 1:34
Although I appear to have been born at a particular place and time to a particular family, and although I appear to have worshipped God and done religious practices to purify my mind, the truth I have realized from the scriptures is that I alone exist—all else is ultimately illusory. Thus, I followed the path, thinking it would lead to freedom. But it merely led me to the recognition of the fact that I have always been free. OM.
