Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking

DAY 52

I am neither the doer nor the enjoyer.  There is no karma for me, past or present.  I have no body nor is the body mine.  There is only me so what could be mine or not-mine?
-Avadhuta Gita 1:66

The doer and enjoyer is the ego, a thought in my mind that claims, “I am doing this” and “Now I am enjoying the results of my actions.”  Because the ego is a thought known to me, it cannot be me.  Because the ego comes and goes, it cannot be me.  The same applies to the body.  Because I am not the body that performs action, nor the ego that claims the results of action as its own, there is no karma for me, past or present.  OM.
