Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking
Arjuna said, “What is the description of the person with steady wisdom, whose mind abides in the self?”
Krishna said, “The one who is unattached in all situations, who neither rejoices on gaining the pleasant nor hates the unpleasant, his knowledge is well established.”
-Bhagavad Gita 2:54 & 57
I am the self, one without a second. Nothing other than me exists so there is nothing for me to be attached to. The mind (and all of its states) are falsely superimposed on to me so when the mind rejoices I do not rejoice; when the mind hates, I do not hate; when the mind becomes established in knowledge, I do not become established in knowledge.
Ironically, a mind with steady wisdom negates the possibility that I myself have steady wisdom. Why? Because it shows that I am reality itself, free of the mind, free of all qualities and distinctions. OM.
