Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking
I am devoid of thought, even when engaged in thought; I am devoid of the sense-organs, even though I have them; I am devoid of intellect, even though endowed with it; and I am devoid of the sense of ego, even though possessed of it.
-Ashtavakra Samhita 18:95
I am not a thought. I am not the sum of my sense perceptions. I am not the reasoning faculty of my mind. I am not even the sense of “I.” All of these things are transient objects that are known to me and I am not what I know. I am the self, untouched by them all.
And yet, thoughts, sense perceptions, etc. are all me because they have no existence apart me, existence itself. They depend on me but I do not depend on them. How inexplicable but liberating is that! OM.
