Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking
DAY 56-Week 8 Progress Check
Arjuna said, “What is the description of the person with steady wisdom, whose mind abides in the self?”
Krishna said, “The one who is not affected by adversities, who is without yearning for pleasures, and is free from longing, fear and anger, is said to be a wise person whose knowledge stays unshaken.”
-Bhagavad Gita 2:54 & 56
I am the self. I am not affected by adversity. I do not yearn for pleasure. I am free from longing, fear and anger. But freedom from adversity, yearning for pleasure, longing, fear and anger is not a state I attain—it is my very nature. When my mind conforms to this knowledge, it is said to have steady wisdom. But I, the self, am free from wisdom, steady or otherwise. OM.
